Darrel Dane was the first superhero to take on the name Doll Man


Darrel Dane was a research chemist who managed to invent a formula that can shrink him to a height of 6 inches while allowing to retain the physical strength proportional to a full grown man, which he used to fight crime as Doll Man.


Quality UniverseEdit

Not much is revealed of the early years of Darrel Dane. What is known is that he was a brilliant research chemist who had discovered a method to allow a man to shrink to six inches in height and restore his size. When his girlfriend, Martha Roberts and her father Professor Roberts were threatened by a mysterious blackmailer, Darrel used his newfound abilities to save them and stop the criminal. Darrel then decided to fight crime as Doll Man and was later joined by his girlfriend Midge, who became Doll Girl.

DC Universe Earth-Two/Earth-XEdit

Though the Darrel Dane of Earth-Two is from another continuity than the original, it is assumed their backgrounds are nearly (if not wholly) identical. As the superhero Doll Man, he ended up teaming up with the superhero Midnight in the summer of 1941 in order to trail a mysterious figure named Uncle Sam. The two arrived just in time to see Uncle Sam and a team of superheroes called the Freedom Fighters disappear through a mysterious portal and followed them. They found themselves on Earth-X, an Earth like our own except the Axis powers won World War II.

Soon, they joined Uncle Sam, who had created a resistance called the Freedom Fighters to wage was against the Nazis.
