Daniel Mattews was a midget also known as Danny the Dummy for his ventriloquist performance in which he posed as the dummy controlled by Matt, just to reveal that he was the ventriloquist all along. However, his fame cost him a normal life as he couldn't go out on the city without people calling him "dummy". Annoyed with society, Matthews decided to turn into crime and started a criminal spree, forcing people to act strangely, making them look like literal, dummies.
- This version of Danny the Dummy, 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.
