At some point during his affiliation with S.T.A.R. Labs of Earth-19, H.R. Wells became a fiction writer. After being exposed as a fraud scientist on his Earth, H.R. tried to escape defamation and restore his reputation. With the help of Randolf Morgan, the head of S.T.A.R. Labs sent a holographic message to Earth-1, auditioning for the new Wells on Team Flash. H.R.'s intention, which he initially tried to hide from the rest of the team, was to collect material for his upcoming semi-autobiographical book, even framing his interactions with Cisco Ramon as part of a narrative for his novel.
