This section of the history takes place during Flashpoint, a massive crossover event set in an alternate timeline to the mainstream DCU. History was completely changed when Professor Zoom finally found a way to erase his nemesis the Flash without harming his own legacy.

Inside, he joined the Meta-Gang and was forced to fight Heatwave during a prison breakout. Though Animal Man had him on the ropes for awhile, Baker let his guard down and accidentally gave Heatwave the opportunity to bite the hero's nose off. Unable to defend himself, Rory dragged Baker to a step and curb-stomped him to death.[1]
