Blane Whitney began showing signs of mental wizardry as a child. His father encouraged him to develop his abilities, which seemed to grow with each passing day. Not only did he develop great mental aptitudes, but he excelled in physical activities as well.
During the years of World War I, Blane developed a powerful corrosive agent that he wanted to use against German ships, however, the war ended before his discovery could be used as a weapon. Blane was commended by the American president personally for his achievements.
After the great war had ended, Blane finished high school and then went on to college where he continuously impressed his professors, fellow students and especially young ladies, with whom he never pressed his advantages, always acting the perfect gentlemen.
He used his powers to fight foreign menaces during WWII, but for reasons never explained, he became a villain much later in life.
He also met a 12-year old boy who witnessed a gang shooting and fought off one of the gunmen. When the Wizard intervened, he took the orphaned boy under his care. Both teamed up to fight crime and the boy would become his sidekick — Roy, the (original) Super Boy.
A few months later Blane did marry Jane and she learned of his secret identity.
