On Earth-One, a pipe-smoking sleuth known as TV Detective Roy Raymond, delved into various eccentric cases. Roy was given a broadcast platform to report on the various odd occurrences in their city on his program Impossible but True. However, Roy disappeared for a period d time when he was kidnapped by a Roger Rivers who had harnessed Raymond's analytical mind in order to create a variety of mental effects on the people of Metropolis. Superman successfully defeated River's schemes by merging their brainwaves together, thereby freeing Raymond who was soon after employed at WGBS-TV in a position similar to his old show.
Raymond's counterpart on Earth-Two was radio personality Dave Clark aka Midnight, who also used futuristic technology in his vacuum gun to combat the criminal element. Midnight was the masked alter ego of radio broadcaster Dave Clark, who was a troubleshooter in his native Big City ferreting out more typical wrongdoers. .Eventually, Clark came in contact with a caped crusader in the form of Doll Man, as both were swept away to a third parallel planet known as Earth-X. There, the pair found Nazi oppression in occupied France until they finally returned to their native world. Eventually, both would become Freedom Fighters on that world, although for a brief period Midnight was also one of the All-Star Squadron. .
One of Midnight's most frequent allies was the eccentric Doc Wackey, a genius yet absent minded scientist who was the Earth-Two version of Professor Potter, who aided Earth-One's Superman repeatedly as well as his niece Lana Lang and other associates of their's such as news reporter Jimmy Olsen. And due to Potter's various experimental serums, Olsen's body elongates enabling him to be Elastic Lad, and to inflate his body into a "fat Jimmy" variation. .
