Thomas Dillon was a schoolmate of Amos Fortune, and one of his strongmen. He initially did not like forming the Royal Flush Gang, because he didn't like the Ten of Clubs uniform. Nonetheless, he twice faced the Justice League as the the Ten of Clubs (on one occasion impersonating the historical personage Judge Duffy) and later fought the Joker as the Ten of Spades alongside the Gang. He was eventually replaced by Michael Bailey, the second Ten, but years later reunited with the original Gang and fought the so-called 'Justice League Detroit'. Dillon apparently died during this encounter, killed by a rock fall engineered by Amos Fortune, who had allied himself with the second incarnation of the Flush Gang as their new Ace.
- Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
