Ed Peale was a man with an obsessive hatred for bells ever since his childhood. As an adult, Peale became an expert in bells and started a crime spree to control all sorts of bells under the alias of "The Gong". After a first series of successful crimes, Gong was eventually captured and arrested by Batman and Robin.


  • This version of Ed Peale (Earth-Two), including all history and corresponding appearances, was initially erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. However the ending of Convergence retroactively prevented that collapse, saving all the alternate realities, though in an "evolved" form. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
