Biography

Original multiverse

Al Capone was confronted by the Legion of Doom who wanted to help with his criminal empire and they were successful at persuading him but in reality, they wanted to lure the Legends into a trap. Corrupt police officers brought law enforcement agent Eliot Ness to him. Capone pushed him into the water though Ness was saved by the Legends while Capone escaped. Later after Legion of Doom member Reverse-Flash captured Legends' member Martin Stein, Capone's men brought Stein to him. As he prepared to push Stein into the water, Capone and his men were taken out by Legends' member Sara Lance.[1]
