Origin[]

George Harkness was sent to America from Australia by his mother in a final attempt to separate him from his estranged stepfather. As a teenager, Harkness put his years of boomerang throwing to use when he was hired by Wiggins Game Company as a boomerang demonstrator. Harkness was given a costume and was dubbed "Captain Boomerang." During these demonstrations, Harkness was often taunted and picked pockets but he was confronted by the . Since then Harkness became a criminal and created many types of boomerangs each with a certain gimmick, such as explosions, electric shocks, and gas dispersal.

Sometime before the Flash was kidnapped by Professor Zoom, Captain Boomerang resurfaced in Gotham City and trapped his enemy on a Giant Boomerang. Before Captain could implement his plot, Batman intervened and saved the Flash's life. Captain Boomerang later pinned down Batman with several boomerangs. Amused with Batman's Batarang, Captain Boomerang allowed the Flash enough time to arrive and help Batman defeat the villain.
