The Bug-Eyed Bandit (real name: Bertram Larvan) was an entomologist and inventor based in Ivytown, Connecticut. Lervan had a breakthrough and created a robotic insect designed to annihilate invasive insect species. However, he was unable to secure any investors to finance his invention. Larvan resolved to use his insects to steal money. Over time, he came to enjoy being a criminal and became the Bug-Eyed Bandit. The Atom defeated the Bug-Eyed Bandit many times, even after Larvan adapted his enemy's size-control technology and incorporated it into his own costume.

The Atom (Ryan Choi) and the Bug-Eyed Bandit fought on the windshield of an RV driven by Aquaman. After vowing to avoid work and enjoy a vacation with his family, Aquaman sadly activated the windshield wipers and swept the hero and villain away. Bug-Eyed Bandit attacked Atom in his lab some time later. In the skirmish, the molecular density unit on Atom's Bio Belt was destroyed and trapped him and Batman in a microscopic state. Bug-Eyed Bandit unleashed his army of flying soldier ant robots on the duo. Aquaman was summoned and helped change everyone to normal size. Bug-Eyed Bandit vowed he'd get Atom but was quickly punched out by Aquaman.
