In the early 1940s, banker John Dodd faced bankruptcy, and turned to crime to prevent it. He adopted a criminal identity as "The Laughing Skull," recruited a small gang, and attempted to extort large sums of money from Dodd's banking clients. This failed, and he murdered two of them, then was interrupted in the middle of murdering a third, by the costumed vigilante Mr. Scarlet.
