History: (Journey into Mystery I#79/2 (fb)-BTS) - The criminal known as the Dummy came up with the idea to start dressing himself up like a toy and leaving himself at the doors of unsuspecting victims.

(Journey into Mystery I#79/2) - The Dummy left himself in front of the door of a family, with a complimentary card on. The husband took the toy in, where his son enthused that he could now be a ventriloquist. After the family went to sleep, the Dummy robbed their safe and fled. He did this several more times. Upon reading in the newspapers that rich industrialist J.P. Bentley had a million-dollar necklace in his possession, the Dummy decided the millionaire would be his next target. He was found on the Bentley porch by the butler, who brought him in. At night, he tried to steal the necklace, but was caught by the butler. In the following struggle, the butler's gun went off, killing the old man. Just then, the police arrived, having been alerted by a security system. The Dummy pretended to be a toy while they searched the room, and one of the cops threw the Dummy in a toy chest and locked it. The Dummy was horrified to find his options were reduced to yelling for help (and thus being arrested for murder), or suffocating to death.

Comments: Created by Don Heck.

Seriously, this guy must have weighed all of 35 lbs., given the way everyone in the story picks him up without even straining, including kids his own size!
