Elmer Pane was an exterminator who one day discovered the secret of altering human beings to give them the proportional strength of insects. He developed some super-strong thugs, and hired them out to several gangsters. The Justice Society of America shut his operation down and he was imprisoned. Later in his own career and earlier in theirs, Elmer Pane again contended against the Justice Society. He was freed from a prison cell in the mid-1940s by Per Degaton, and was time-shifted back to December of 1941, to play a small part in Per Degaton's second world-takeover scheme. He confronted and was defeated by Hawkman, and seemingly vanished. He may have been returned to his mid-1940s prison cell.
