Quote1.png You claim to lack a future? Let me give you one. My spirit wanes. So too would my powers fade to naught if I let them... But while I yet live I can pass them on to another. My final act, my final gift... The Speed of a God! Quote2.png
Mercury src

Mercury was the only Roman God to survive the war with Apokolips.

He was kept prisoner by an unknown being for five years which he claims is a greater danger than Apokolips. He escaped back to Earth, but was fatally wounded in the process. Before he died, he passed on his speed to Jay Garrick, telling him about the evil. He then told him to run as the World Army tried to capture Jay.
