View full history
Carny was a android, a automaton with human form. A short and fat human form. He was also an unofficial member of the robotic Extremists and the ruler of Wackyworld, a amusent park created by Mitch Wacky, (a Walt Disney parody) of Angor and the last vestige of the civilization than once existed on the planet.
Carny had hostage the Silver Sorceress and the JLE after the Extremist attacked earth and sent them to the devastated Angor. But as a good robotic host, Carny was just delighted to have new visitors again, visitors to whom entertain. But after he revealed the true nature of the park and after the rejection of the leaguers to be entertained, Carny made the automatons attack the earthmen. However, the JLE just striked back and went after Carny. Terrified, Carny did the most wackiest thing he could: he destroyed the park and himself in the process. But that destruction woke up Mitch Wacky from his cryogenical suspension.
The head of Carny survived the explosions and was reactivated after by Wacky himself. There, Carny told him and to the leaguers how was happened after the death of the humans, how the automatons upgraded themselves and how they built heroes and villians so realistic than the villians believe themselves the real ones and destroyed the heroes, left Carny on charge of the park. This information was relevant to defeat later the extremists on earth.
Countdown: Earth 8
Another version of Carny made a brief cameo as an inhabitant of earth-8. He was the only one who opposed to some scheme to Lord Havok and was killed almost in the act. He looked more like a circus clown in this version.
As his colleagues Extremists, Carny is asumed to be a DC "homage" to some Marvel villian. By his relation to an amusement park is asociated to x-villian Arcade.
