Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #48

Mystery, Inc. heads to Central City to help investigate an appearance of the ghost of a super-villain who recently returned. However, Scooby-Doo and the gang weren't called in by the Flash (who apparently is off-world with the Justice League) but instead by his most notorious foes - The Rogues.

There's fun to be had by both Scooby-Doo! fans and those of the Flash as the most notable Rogues (all in their classic Silver/Bronze Age style) are on-hand to make an convincing argument to Mystery, Inc. to help them. Or else. Even those not directly involved in the story (such as Gorilla Grodd and the Reverse-Flash) still earn a mention.

What better way to get to the truth than by robbing the Flash Museum? While the villain hiding being the ghost of the Top is a classic Rogue, he's just obscure enough to make the storyline work. Playing to his ego forces the villain to reveal himself, and thankfully some back-up arrives just in time to save the gang from the Rogues who no longer need their help. Worth a look.
