Joey Toledo was a drug dealer working for the 100.

When he and his gang members invaded the gymnasium of Garfield High School and attacked Jefferson Pierce, Earl Clifford came to his defense and helped to fight them off. Tobias Whale hears of what happened and orders Toledo to make an example out of Earl. Joey Toledo led his men into attacking Earl where the altercation led to Earl getting struck by a car. Joey then had his goons suspend his dead body from the basketball net in the gymnasium. With help from Peter Gambi, Jefferson Pierce becomes Black Lightning where he beats up Joey Toledo's men. Afterwards, Black Lightning grabs Joey and pressures Toledo to tell him everything there is to know about the 100. He tells him to meet him at Garfield High's gymnasium at midnight..[1]

When Black Lightning goes to meet with Joey Toledo, he was caught by surprise when Joey had brought Merlyn with him to kill Black Lightning. The fight is later crashed by Talia al Ghul and the League of Assassins who are not pleased with Merlyn leaving them after failing to kill Batman. The battle turned into a three-way battle where Joey Toledo was killed by a League of Assassins operative.[2]

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
