Golden Age Origin

A. Bookworm was a rare-book thief who continued to steal first editions of Treasure Island, in hopes to find Long John Silver's pirate loot. When he did find the treasure, he and Long John Silver, not the pirate but the crook named after him, shot and killed each other.

He used Booby-Trap Books: bomb books, books with poisoned pages, heavy iron books...

He was an enemy of Black Hood.
