They say a hero is only as strong as his villains. Meaning The Flash is more powerful than the whole Justice League of America combined. Go ahead and pick the era, don’t matter. The Flash thinks we’re slow. It’s his nature after all. But what the kid doesn’t realize, there’s a reason the Rogues always get the best of him. A reason we won’t stay locked up, and a reason we always come back for more. What they fail to understand is that what we got here is tighter ‘en any of their stupid groups.
We steal. We kill. That’s our chip. The Rogues have an unspoken code, a bond stronger than death itself. We watch one another’s backs. To the end. That’s why this here, what’s been happening, what they’ve done to Owen and Digger, it’s a damn disgrace. The turncoats are threatenin’ our way of life. They wanted to bring this to us — but we’re bringing it to them. It’s war, ladies and gentlemen. This is war.
