|“||In my line of work, there's a code: you never leave your partner behind.||”|
— Mick Rory[src]
Mick Rory is a pyromaniac criminal active in Central City, nicknamed Heat Wave.
Using the Heat Gun, Rory terrorized Central City with Leonard Snart/Captain Cold for years before being recruited by Rip Hunter to the Legends of Tomorrow, as one of its first recruits.
As a Legend, Rory slowly reformed and became a vigilante, while committing minor crimes during his missions. He also became a romantic story writer and used the pen name Rebecca Silver. The mantle was later passed onto Mona Wu, and he also left the Legends to raise his human-Necrian hybrid children with Kayla.
Early Life[edit source]
|“||My past is not for everyone to see.||”|
— Mick Rory[src]
At some point, Mick Rory started being obsessed in fire and later burnt his arms, forcing to wear his gloves to prevent others from knowing his past.
The Flame and the Frost[edit source]
For a long time, Rory operated as a pyromaniacal criminal and later partnered with Leonard Snart. In 2014, Snart gave him a handheld flamethrower as they both fought against The Flash with their respective weapons. However, both were captured and incarcerated in Iron Heights Penitentiary before they repeatedly escaped.
Recruited by Rip Hunter[edit source]
In 2015, Rory, alongside Ray Palmer, Sara Lance, Martin Stein, Jefferson Jackson, Kendra Saunders, Carter Hall and Leonard Snart were recruited by Rip Hunter. They were then the founding members of the team known as the Legends of Tomorrow and defended the timeline.
After their first mission, Rory slept through the night and used Rip Hunter's decorative urn as a bedpan.
Crisis on Infinite Earths[edit source]
During the Crisis, Rory was in Star City organizing a book signing. It was later disturbed by a giant Beebo created by Sargon. Rory was angry and shot Beebo with his Heat Gun. However, the flame was not effective. Later, the other heroes realized it was a diversion for a robbery. He was presumably given back his Earth-1 doppelgänger's memories.
After they defeated Beebo and Sargon, they realized the Anti-Monitor was alive and Rory was sent to S.T.A.R. Labs to protect the "geek team". During the battle, Rory and Frost were discussing which of them would kill the Shadow Demon, only to be assisted by Black Lightning.
