Tar Pit (DC)
Real Name: Joey Monteleone
Search for 'Tar Pit (DC)' on Amazon

Joey Monteleone, younger brother of Keystone City drug lord Jack “The Candyman” Monteleone, was uninterested in the family “business.” Turning instead to petty crime, he landed in Iron Heights. After waiting six months for his brother to break him out, began meditating and discovered he could project his consciousness into inanimate objects.

After several “joyrides,“ he entered a vat of hot tar and went on a rampage at a Keystone Combines hockey game. He fought first the hockey players, then the Flash, and discovered that he was (appropriately) trapped in the tar form.

Tar Pit’s original body remains incarcerated, comatose, in Iron Heights. His molten form escaped when a riot broke out, and his current whereabouts are unknown
