History

  Roy Raymond was one of the great detectives of the 1950s. Using the new medium of television, he hosted a show called "Impossible But True", revealing hoaxes together with his assistant, Karen Colby. In later years, Roy was kidnapped by a Roger Rivers who manipulated him and used his brilliant mind in acts of terrorism. Eventually, Roy was found and rescued by Superman, and went back to television. In his old age, Roy became somewhat bitter and greedy. He earned money through dubious jobs, such as when he tried to hunt down the Swamp Thing. A clash with the Wild Thing instead resulted in a car crash where Roy's assistant Lipsqwitch died and Roy himself was disfigured. Plastic surgery restored his face, and apparently also his common sense. Realizing what he had become, he vowed to return to his roots as a more altruistic detective.

  Roy’s son, Roy Jr, has since attempted to walk in his father’s footsteps.
