*The Diabolical Dr. York
*Pawn of the Elder Gods
Background: Elias York is a former scientist that eventually realized science had its limits… so he had turned to dark sorcery, selling his soul to the service of Elder Gods. His body became the receptacle for dark energies that had the unfortunate side effect of altering his appearance. York’s brain eventually was held in a clear protective dome, floating above the rest of his body.
The villain battled the masked vigilante known as The Peregrine several times in the 1930s before clashing with both Assistance Unlimited and Babylon, the latter taking place during John Galahad’s time as host of the cosmic spirit of retribution. Originally, York’s body was very slight and he focused on using a mix of science and the occult to battle his foes — eventually, however, he was able to upgrade his physical form, allowing him to physically engage his enemies.
