Golden Age Origin

The Thinker was an extra-terrestrial who lived on what appeared to be a comet made entirely of gold. On the surface was the Thinker's golden headquarters from which he commanded a small army of headless men. These men, armed with high-tech ray weapons, responded to the thoughts of the Thinker, and obeyed his every whim. He created the headless men by capturing ships that passed his comet with a magnetic tractor beam, and decapitating the inahbitants of the ships. When he tried to do this to Space Smith, he got more than he could bargain for. Dianna overloaded his computers, creating an explosion which knocked the Thinker unconcious. Without him to command his headless men, they went wild and tore each other apart.
