A lonely child, Henry King spent his youth in daydreams, until he discovered he possessed the mutant ability to project realistic illusions from his subconscious. As he grew King continued to develop his power until he had full control over his three-dimensional projections.
A greedy man, King sent obedient thought images out to steal for him, until King had amassed a vast fortune. Financially secure at last, and now calling himself The Brain Wave, King turned his attention to plans of world domination. Realizing that the members of the Justice Society of America were the principal obstacles in his path, King attempted repeatedly over the years, alone and as a member of the Injustice Society of the World, to eliminate the JSAers permanently. Each attempt met with failure, often owing to his desire to avoid physical combat at all costs.
Several decades ago, under circumstances still unrevealed, King met and married part-time super-heroine Merry Pemberton and they had a son, Henry, Jr., who as Brainwave Jr. helped organize the second generation super-team called Infinity, Inc.
Recently, while attempting to protect his son, The Brain Wave was slain in a battle with the monstrous man-ape called the Ultra-Humanite. As a final gesture of paternal love, King transferred the bulk of his awesome mental powers to his son, the only legacy King could leave him.
