May 13, post-13:05 MDT

Burton and two other guards responded to an alarm at STAR Labs, arriving as Virgil, Ed, Asami and Tye found their escape attempt blocked by a locked fire door. Burton demanded they return, but he and the other guards were knocked out by the teens.[1]

Burton, David Wilcox and some guards tracked the escaped teens to a bus depot. In response to the threat, a sleeping Tye generated a gigantic astral form and threw the depot roof at them. Blue Beetle intervened, but was knocked down by Tye, who then picked up his friends and ran away. Beetle told Burton and the others to return to STAR Labs.[1]

Later, following Red Volcano's attack on STAR, Burton was trapped under some girders. He was freed by Virgil, who then helped him to safety.[1]
