View full history
Tony Woodward was a steel worker who assaulted a female coworker. A riot ensued, an Tony, in the chaos, fell into a vat of molten steel. The steel had been treated with leftovers from a S.T.A.R. Lab experiment, and Tony was given a new body that looked like it had been put together in a scrapyard. Girder joined Blacksmith's Rogues. He would later meet fellow villain Magenta, who he has an affection for. However, his crude come-ons annoyed her, so she used her magnetic powers to tear him in half. He later appeared as one of the Rogues being mind controlled by the Top in Rogue War. Girder was also one of the villains sent to planet Salvation.
He was among the villains recruited by Tapeworm to ambush the JSA.
Girder was imprisoned in Iron Heights, but was freed by the resurrected Captain Boomerang to distract the guards so he could speak to the similarly resurrected Professor Zoom.
Girder, Tar Pit, Pied Piper and Chroma(who looked similar to the Rainbow Raider) attempted to get in the way of Grodd. Grodd dispatched them one by one. Girder was knocked out by Grodd.
