The Dummy is an arch-enemy of the Golden Age Vigilante, and a skilled inventor of weapons. As the leader of a criminal gang, the Dummy pretends to be a ventriloquist's dummy through whom the gang's supposed "true" leader conveys instructions, the gang never suspecting that the Dummy himself is their leader. The Dummy's secret identity is never revealed; in fact, it is never made clear whether the Dummy is a very short human being or an actual wooden dummy that has somehow been brought to life.

The Dummy is shown to be responsible for the death of the Vigilante's sidekick Stuff the Chinatown Kid in World's Finest #246 (August-September 1977); however, this is contradicted in the 1995-1996 mini-series Vigilante: City Lights, Prairie Justice (1995-1996), in which Stuff is killed by mobster Bugsy Siegel. The two accounts probably represent Stuff's historic fate both prior to and following the alteration of reality caused by the Crisis on Infinite Earths.

The Dummy also appears in All-Star Squadron, where he is recruited for Mister Mind's Monster Society of Evil (pre-Crisis). In the course of this storyline, the Dummy passes through Green Lantern/Alan Scott's energy force-field unimpeded, implying that the Dummy is made of wood (which would make him immune to Scott's power) and is indeed a living ventriloquist's dummy.

In modern times, the Dummy returned and took over the criminal organization Injustice Unlimited to battle Infinity, Inc..
