Synopsis for "Iron Heights"
Serial killer Doctor Michael Amar, once a respected surgeon, went crazy and started a killing spree to stop the voices in his head. This spree went through Central City and Keystone City and caught the eye of police officers Fred Chyre and Joe Jackam. They later tracked him down with help from the Flash. Amar was convicted and sentenced to death.
Several years later, Weather Wizard is brought into Iron Heights. He is given a rude welcome by the warden, Gregory Wolfe. Wolfe grills him about murdering his brother, but Mardon claims he did not do it. There is a viral outbreak at the penitentiary. Flash runs in to save the police officers trapped. Flash and Pied Piper break-in through the basement where they stumble upon old villain Fallout. He is tied up with tons of wires and the whole facility is being powered by his radiation. After going through some of the most dangerous locked foes, Flash finds Doctor Amar and deduces that he is the one responsible for the virus. When Flash tries to interrogate Amar, he realizes that the madman has sewn his mouth shut and cut out his tongue so that he can never incriminate himself again. He now goes by the moniker Murmur as seen on his prison cell door.
Back at STAR Labs, Jay Garrick finds a vaccine for the disease just as Flash brings him a sample of Murmur's blood, which is invulnerable to the virus. Jay puts the cure out in the water system, curing the infected people on the outside while Wally takes the cure to Iron Heights and cures everyone.
However, during the whole event, the Rogues who were locked in Iron Heights had escaped and among them was Murmur. The villains make a proposal to Murmur, saying it is time they start a new Rogue's Gallery to bring down the Flash.
