Origin

A disgruntled lino-typer for the Daily Courier newspaper, Charley Halstead sought revenge upon his employer by staging a series of crimes based upon emotions as the Psycho-Pirate.


After being incarcerated by the Justice Society he met Roger Hayden in prison. Before dying he told Hayden about the Medusa Masks, artifacts capable of inducing emotion in others. Out of prison, Hayden stole the mask and became the new Psycho-Pirate.
