History

Oberon was the diminutive manager of Mister Miracle, the world's greatest escape artist.

The dwarf Oberon was orphaned at a young age in a fire.[1] He sought work with a traveling circus and was made to perform menial labor under a verbally and physically abusive ringmaster. Oberon was eventually rescued by escape artist, Thaddeus Brown, the original Mister Miracle. He became Brown's assistant and protege, helping him plan his elaborate escapes.

Oberon later accompanied Brown to Vietnam to seek Brown's missing son. There, they become embroiled in the schemes of a criminal called Steel Hand. As a result, Brown was killed and his mysterious friend Scott Free (a member of the New Gods) became the new Mister Miracle, finally rescuing Brown's son and bringing the killer to justice.[2] As he had with Brown, Oberon agreed to become Scott's partner and manager and planned his escape artistry performances.

Oberon shared a somewhat antagonistic relationship with Scott's wife, Big Barda. The two frequently teased and insulted each other — Oberon declaring that Barda was all legs and no brain, Barda mocking Oberon's diminutive stature. In truth, the two were indeed friends, however little they were willing to admit it.

When Mister Miracle became a member of the Justice League International, Oberon assumed the position of the right-hand man of Maxwell Lord.[3] He was also briefly the paramour of Fire. Since their departure from that group, Oberon has resumed his role as Scott Free's manager and father figure.
