Major Story Arcs
Gambi is hired by various costumed criminals, particularly the Rogues, to create and maintain their uniforms. When he was uncovered by the Flash during the hero's investigation into the Top, Gambi teams up with the Top to try to capture the Flash. After the Top was defeated, Gambi was imprisoned for some time, leaving his shop in the hands of his assistant. Upon his release from prison he vows to go straight, and gives the Flash a suit. The suit was tampered with by Mirror Master, causing the Flash to unintentionally commit crimes. After the resolution of this case, Gambi quietly returns to creating costumes for criminals.
Obsessed with creating the perfect super villain costume, Gambi constructs the Suit, which later becomes animate and begins committing crimes on its own.
During the Final Crisis, Gambi is sought out and attacked by the New Rogues, who have been sent by Libra to send a message to the Rogues. He is beaten and left nearly dead in his own shop.
