While on an expedition in Mongolia archaeologist Richard Grey and his wife were killed by Mongol warriors, leaving their infant son abandoned. An unusually intelligent race of condors nurtured the boy, who eventually discovered he had the mutant ability to fly.
Years later, Father Pierre, a local hermit, found the wounded Richard and took him in, educating him in the ways of survival and the world. After Father Pierre's death, Grey became a costumed adventurer and called himself the Black Condor, aiding humanity. Grey designed a black outfit with glider wings that enabled him to resemble the birds that had saved his life. Grey eventually came to America and , after various cases there, assumed the name and identity of his look-alike, Senator Thomas Wright, who had been secretly murdered by a criminal politician.
When World War II broke out, Grey became a part of America's All-Star Squadron, ultimately choosing to join a task force recruited by Uncle Sam to help battle the Axis menace on a world without super-heroes, dubbed Earth-X.
On this parallel planet, Grey found himself a member of the Freedom Fighters, spending over twenty-five years at war. Finally, with the help of the Justice Society of America and the Justice League of America, the Freedom Fighters ended the war.
