Colonel Computron’s costume is a duplicate of the one worn by Captain Computron, the subject of a wildly successful computerized amusement manufactured by the Wiggins Toy Corporation. This, added to Colonel Computron’s several attempts to murder the company’s president Willard W. Wiggins, points to a member of the Nurblin family of Central City as most likely to be the person inside the costume. The Nurblins’ milquetoast patriarch Basil is the designer of Captain Computron. For his hard work and ingenuity in doing so, he received only token compensation from the miserly Wiggins. Though Basil possesses both the skills and motive to be Colonel Computron, his shrewish wife, Francine, also has the necessary technical know-how. She likewise possesses the necessary temperament to seek violent revenge against Wiggins, whom she views as persecuting her “spineless” husband. The final suspect, the Nurblins’ daughter, Luna, shares their genius in micro-electronics, and the Computron costume certainly matches her largish physical dimensions. Because of this inconclusive evidence, exactly which members (if any) of the Nurblin clan is really Colonel Computron remains a mystery. Whomever it is, there is no question of Computron’s animosity toward Willard Wiggins. On three separate occasions, Computron prepared high-technology deathtraps for Wiggins, only to have them thwarted by the Flash (Barry Allen). The first such attempt involved the use of a
“Molecu-Siphon” to trap Wiggins inside a lethal giant computer game, a fate the Flash suffered in his place. Ultimately, Wiggins, Computron, and the Scarlet Speedster all survived this initial encounter unscathed. Computron returned at young Willard Wiggins, Jr.’s birthday party, but once again, the Flash saved Wiggins. However, the intervention of another Flash foe, Captain Boomerang, nearly enabled a third attempt to succeed. A brief alliance between the Colonel and the Captain produced a giant boomerang capable of traveling backward in time. They trapped the Flash inside it (along with Boomerang, after Computron betrayed him). When the Flash and Boomerang finally returned to the present era, Computron had strapped Wiggins into an electric chair, to be activated when Wiggins lost at a computer game. The Flash and Captain Boomerang freed Wiggins, but once again Computron escaped. Since then, Computron has not reappeared.
