The man who would become the Javelin was a German Olympic athlete, who for unknown reasons became a criminal. Using his talent, he has created an unusual arsenal of weapons based on spears. Javelin hired a gang of thugs and became a mercenary. In his first encounter with Green Lantern, Javelin stole a prototype jet-powered solar Ferris Aircraft and defeated the Green Lantern with various missiles. He was captured, however, when he tried to blow up the Ferris Aircraft.

Suicide Squad

Later, he agreed to serve with the Suicide Squad in exchange for the acquittal of his crimes. During a field mission, he and the Squad fought against Circe during the so called War of the Gods. Javelin was apparently killed when Circe impaled him on his own spear. This was not the end however. He reappeared with a cadre of villains paid to attack Deadshot. Deadshot managed to shoot one of Javelin's exploding javelins and the explosion seemed to once again kill the villain.

One Year Later

One year later, Javelin had connected with the Suicide Squad once again. The group was betrayed by Tattooed Man and Javelin was hit by a car. The rest of the group left him behind thinking he had been killed.

Cry for Justice

He reappears during the events of Cry for Justice, where he is one of the villains assembled by Prometheus to steal technology. The group was beaten quickly by the Justice League. Javelin was the only remaining villain. He was about to launch a javelin at the group when he was knocked out by Supergirl.

  • 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.
