Background Edit

Fascinated by tops, gyroscopes and all spinning things, Roscoe Dillon became the costumed criminal known as "the Top"; capable of spinning at great speeds.

It was later revealed that Barry Allen had Zatanna tamper with the Top's mind, turning him into a hero, after the Top had gone on a murderous rampage and Allen believed that this was the only way to stop him from causing more harm. As a hero, the Top went insane over the guilt of his earlier deeds and, after Wally West had Zatanna restore the Top's mind, the Top revealed that when he had been a hero he had attempted to reprogram many of the other Rogues into heroes as well, including the Pied Piper.
