Notes

  • 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.
  • Although the final fate of Bill Craig has never been revealed, it is reasonable to assume, that given his age during his time of service with the Haunted Tank, that he has since passed away.
