Golden Age Origin

The Crane was a high ranking Nazi agent who reported directly to Adolf Hitler during World War II. He came into conflict with Boy King & Giant on a number of occasions. He once fought the giant, commanding a giant robotic Tyrannosaurus Rex. On another occasion, The Crane even managed to take control of the Boy King's giant, and ordered it to wreak havoc, before the Boy King stopped him, and reclaimed his giant.


The Crane was a cyborg with metal arms attached to his body at the shoulder. These arms could telescope out, allowing him to reach at least 30 feet, possibly more. He was a dangerous fighter and sometimes carried a dagger.
