Thown Objects, Weapon Specialist: Boomerangs




Digger Harkness was an Australian expert with the boomerang. He was hired by a corporation named the Wiggins toy company to be their new spokesman for their company. Mr.Wiggins gave him his current costume. Wiggins wanted to showcase his newest toy, “the Wiggins boomerang”. As Captain Boomerang, he went on tour to do special public events showing off his Amazing skill with the Wiggins boomerang. Secretly he had preprogrammed boomerangs commit robberies while in public view during those events. Flash realized that the robberies took place during his public events in every city he attended. Flash put two and two together and tracked down the boomerangs to harkness and caught him red handed. Later he battled Flash many, many times. He even joined the Suicide Squad for a while. His current whereabouts are unknown.
