Raijin, the self proclaimed "God of Lightning" is a mysterious armored individual who was seemingly the leader of the Black Hole terrorist organization, but was in actuality just a pawn of Gorilla Grodd.
The man who would become Raijin was a scientist at S.T.A.R. Labs who was obsessed with the Speed Force. Grodd corrupted him, however, and either provided him with or helped him to create his lightning wand, which purportedly allows its user to control and study the Speed Force. He assisted Grodd in the creation of the Speed Force storm that connected August Heart, Avery Ho and Meena Dhawan to the Force.
Raijin appeared before Meena to inform her that the first storm was only a test, and that with her help Black Hole would be able to control the Speed Force. He later joined Multiplex to help Grodd take control of the Speed Force once and for all, but was defeated.
