Nothing is known about the origins of the Balloon Man; he simply appeared one day and began a series of daring robberies. He managed to thwart the Metal Men on several occasions, until they used intense heat to reduce him to steam, apparently killing him.

  • This version of Balloon Man (Earth-One), including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
