History

Roy G. Bivolo was not interested in climbing trees or playing baseball. All he ever wanted to do was paint, and he might have been a child prodigy except that he was colorblind. However Roy’s father was a brilliant optometrist and he kept his sons hopes alive with constant promises of a cure for color blindness.

Roy’s father never found the cure but on his deathbed he gave him a pair of “prisma goggles” as compensation, after some experimentation Roy found that the goggles gave him incredible powers over colored light. Embittered by years of frustration, Roy turned to crime. He resented the fact that his vision deficiencies prevented him from ever appreciating great works of art so he created the identity of Rainbow Raider and used his new found powers to steal those works, so that no one else would be able to appreciate them either.

The Flash (Barry Allen) brought the Raider’s crime spree to a halt. Later Roy plotted to steal all color from Central City. However his equipment exploded in his face, granting him temporary color vision and allowing him to use his powers without his goggles. Despite these advances and the help of the Shade, The Flash triumphed again. Next he joined forces with Doctor DoubleX in order to defeat the Flash and the Batman. Again Roy was defeated and imprisoned and once again he escaped, only to be apprehended by the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan).

Ironically, The next Raider’s next battle was alongside the rest of Flash’s rogues gallery against the 64th century criminal Abra Kadabra, who was trying to destroy the Flash at their expense. Kadabra was defeated and the Rainbow Raider’s current whereabouts are unknown.
