The Lump was created by Granny Goodness as a way to trap Mister Miracle once and for all. It was totally immobile, but had tremendous psychic powers. When Mister Miracle entered the trap the Lump linked to his mind and trapped him in a dream landscape of its own creation. Mister Miracle had difficulty facing the Lump at first, but eventually drove it mad with the sight of its own hideous appearance.

The Lump reappeared in the second Evil Factory Darkseid established in Bludhaven. There it was used to mentally torture Batman by generating a series of illusions based on his past.[1] Batman was able to take control of the Lump's body, forcing its handlers to kill it.[2]



  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
