Joe Tracy was a press agent in Midway City, Michigan who worked exclusively for naturalist Mavis Trent. Joe was always secretly in love with Mavis, but was also deterred by the fact that she only had eyes for museum curator Carter Hall.

  • This version of Joe Tracy, 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.
