- —H.R. Wells[src]
At some point during his affiliation with S.T.A.R. Labs of Earth Nineteen, H.R. Wells became a fiction writer. After being exposed as a fraud scientist on his Earth, H.R. tried to escape defamation and restore his reputation. With the help of Randolf Morgan, the head of S.T.A.R. Labs sent a holographic message to Earth One, auditioning for the new Wells on Team Flash. H.R.'s intention, which he initially tried to hide from the rest of the team, was to collect material for his upcoming semi-autobiographical book, even framing his interactions with Cisco Ramon as part of a narrative for his novel.
