Over the years, the membership of the group expanded or changed as foes of the Flash switched out. Other members of the group, include:

The Rogues Gallery were never able to defeat the Flash and after his disappearance, most of the group retired. Some have come out of retirement to commit crimes again and in some cases have reformed and used their abilities of good.

Recently, the original five were part of a plot by the demon Neron to entrap Wally West, the present-day Flash. The five were killed and returned to life with enhanced powers but no souls, making them ruthless killers. The Flash was able to defeat Neron and get the Rogues Gallery's souls restored.
