David Singh Prime Earth 0001

Hartley and Singh

Hartley made his first appearance as the leader of the Central City Symphony, following the presumed deaths of Barry Allen and Jean McNilty, among others, of the Central City Police Department.[2]

At some point, Hartley began dating David Singh.[2] He lived in an apartment in Candler Park Neighborhood in Central City and shared an apartment with Barry for a while.[3] Some time later, he and Singh went to live in a house they bought together.[4]

He started a support group for the victims of the Rogues to make amends about his past when he ran with the Rogues.[5]



  • Pied Piper's Flute: Rathaway has crafted his own sophisticated flute capable of hypnotizing rats and pigeons (and probably other creatures) within range of its sound, making them do what ever he wants, adding another similarity to his legendary namesake.


  • Hartley has a pet rat named Moon.[3]
