Slugger Dunn was a former heavyweight prize fighter during the 1930s. After retiring from boxing, he became the personal valet and trainer to adventurer/playboy Rod Reilly. Slugger was one of the few people who knew of Rod's dual identity as Firebrand. In 1941, both Slugger and Rod enlisted in the United States Navy. They were present on the Hawaiian isle of Oahu in December of that year when the Japanese engaged in a sneak attack on the naval base at Pearl Harbor. Slugger was struck down by strafing fire from a Japanese zero. Rod tried to pull his friend to safety, but met a similar end only moments later. Both survived, although Rod Reilly was in considerably worse shape than Slugger.
- Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-Two 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.
