The Flash: Annual
Read The Flash: Annual Online Summary:
The Rogues – victorious? If THE FLASH had trouble with them individually, together they’ll kill him!
Something worse than The Rogues is just waiting for the right moment to attack....
The Flash remembers when his dad took him to races at the Salt Flats in Bonneville.
A year and a half ago the Rogues attacked the city. Their rules are explained - 1. They don't kill, 2. They don't go near drugs, 3. It's all about the score. Flash fought them back again, which frustrates them very much, especially Captain Cold who struggles with his role as a leader. Wandering through the city, he is confronted by Darwin Elias who makes him an offer. Leonard wants the group to use a genome changer, to make them into superhumans like The Flash to have a chance against him. His sister Lisa is against the idea but they do it anyway. The experiment goes wrong, empowering the Rogues but killing Lisa in the process, turning her intothe Golden Glider, a phantom caught between the astral planes. Her lover Sam is lost even more.
Patty is taking a blood sample for the crime lab from Turbine after the incident. When they see a report on TV that claims Barry might have stabbed Elias, Turbine remembers everything and wants to help Patty.
At the scene, Captain Cold freezes Elias so he can't die and Flash is surprised to hear that Captain Cold wants to work together with him to beat the others. Flash fights three of the Rogues in the Mirrorworld while Lisa and Leonard fight each other outside. After the fight is over, Leonard explains Lisa that it is not about being a powerful leader but about the score and, as a new fourth rule, about the family of Rogues. But before they can discuss their future, King Grodd and his army arrive in Central City.
