At some point after Johnny Quick took over Central City, Hartley Rathaway joined the Rogues to oppose his regime. To help the Rogues, Harley synthesized a drug that could paralyze a criminal for interrogation purposes.
Containing Johnny Quick
In 2016, Hartley met Barry Allen, a speedster from Earth-1. After Barry helped the Rogues defeat Johnny Quick, he asked Hartley to modify a holding node from the old particle accelerator so they could turn it into a prison for the captured speedster. After Thawne woke up, Hartley introduced himself. He explained that the buzzing sound the speedster is hearing is an aura residue from an ultrasonic frequency, which Hartley developed to prevent Thawne from focusing on his speed and contain him.
