Golden Age Origin

The Hand of Horror was a large mechanical robot hand/gauntlet created by the genius inventor known as Crimesmith to kill his enemies. Crimesmith was able to control the Hand from a distance, but at times, it seemed to act autonomously or semi-autonomously.

It had superhuman strength (sufficient to rip apart steel bars), and could leap at least six feet in the air (at times, it appeared to have the ability to fly). It could also wield weapons such as knives and guns. It generally strangled people to death, but also had slashing talons.
