Jeremy Tell was a Central Keystone area con man and gambler, who gained powers when a cursed deck of cards bonded to him. He has since assumed the name Double Down. During a high stakes game, Tell lost all his money. Angered, he murdered the winner. A mystically "cursed deck of cards" the murdered man owned animated and flew at Tell, cleaving and bonding to his skin. Most of his flesh was seared off, replaced by the cards. They can detach itself on his command, slicing everything in their way.

Iron Heights

During his time in prison, Murmur released the Frenzy virus at Iron Heights. Tell tried to escape in the ensuing mass breakout, but was stopped by Pied Piper. He was taken back to solitary confinement. A later attempt to break out was successful. After escaping Iron Heights, he and Girder were both hired by Penguin to help him establish a crime ring in Keystone City, but was stopped by The Flash and Nightwing.

Green Arrow & Black Canary's Wedding

In the aftermath of the ambush at the wedding of Green Arrow and Black Canary, Double Down hid in the backseat of a car and escaped with Piper and Trickster. He held them at knife point to help him in joining in their escape. At a roadside diner, Double Down wanted to join the two in their run from the law, afraid of the recent super villain disappearances. The Suicide Squad had tracked them to the diner, and Double Down was taken in. The other two escaped.
