The son of the original Ragdoll, Peter Merkel, Sr., not much is known about Peter Merkel, Jr.'s early life, but given that his father was a sociopath and a cult leader, his was probably not the most conventional of families. He indicates that his father was abusive due to disappointment at his not being born double-jointed. He has a sister, an extremely brutal (and insane) crime lord who goes by the name Junior. It appears that their relationship was incestuous. Somewhere in his teens he had his genitalia surgically removed. At some point he began thinking about having his bones altered to mimic double-jointedness.
Injustice League

When Peter reached adulthood, he began having his joints replaced one by one with fully-rotating, self-lubricating prosthetics. After twelve years and hundreds of surgeries, he achieved a level of flexibility that his father could only dream about. Needless to say, the original Ragdoll didn't like the competition.

Through unknown circumstances, Rag Doll joined the Secret Six, and helped them throughout a variety of adventures. His role in the Six is that of the demented smart-ass and is constantly trying to prove he is the weirdest and funniest of the bunch.
Blackest Night

During Blackest Night, Rag Doll, the rest of the Six, and the Suicide Squad fought a group of Black Lanterns that attacked them at Belle Reve's prison. The fight was one of brutality against brutality as the Six repeatedly killed their enemies only to have them continue fighting.
