    Assassination of The Gambler (Earth-2: Post-Crisis)

    Settle in, as we're about to begin a tale of trust, a tale of heartache, and a tale of murder.

    The Assassination of The Gambler was a mysterious silencing of Steve Sharpe, The Gambler, who discovered hidden cameras monitoring Blue Valley.

    History[edit | hide | hide all]

    Background[edit | hide]

    Sharpe decides to reform

    In September 2021, Steve Sharpe, The Gambler, returned to Blue Valley after evading the authorities for his criminal activities. As he returned to Blue Valley, he went to apologize and state his intent to reform to the Whitmore-Dugans, soon moving back to his trailer. While he stayed in his trailer, he began searching for his daughter, whom she unknowingly abandoned and was subsequently sent to an adoption agency. Meanwhile, Sharpe wrote a letter and completed right when the computer detected an identified feed, including those filming his trailer, the The American Dream Tower, Blue Valley High School, the Whitmore-Dugans, and the Chapels[1]

    Assassination[edit | hide]

    Later, Sharpe retrieved his pistol from the trash can and cautiously exited his trailer, searching for the hidden camera. However, before he could remove the camera, an unknown being revealed itself and tackled Sharpe. Sharpe defended himself with his pistol, with the Justice Society of America being close enough to hear The Gunshot.[1]

    Aftermath[edit | hide]
