Golden Age Origin

Professor Kazar was a brilliant scientist who developed a ring with a beam which caused its victims to dance frantically like madmen. Supposedly prolonged exposure to the ring could also cause death.

Kazar was eventually beaten by the Canadian crime-fighter the Penguin (at that point dubbed "The Blue Raven") after he discovered that water negated the ring's power.

Golden Age Appearances

  • Slam-Bang Comics #7


  • Kazar's first and only appearance (The Dancing Madness) also marks the first and only time Penguin creator Adrian Dingle did not write the story. Instead, writing duties were covered by Canadian pulp fiction writer John Hollis Mason.
