In 1939 scientist Darrel Dane developed a serum that gave him the power to shrink to a height of six inches and grow back to his normal size by willing himself to do so. After using his new power to save his girlfriend, Martha Roberts, from a murderous blackmailer, Dane decided to fight crime. Since he could shrink himself to the size of a doll, he called himself the Doll Man.

In the summer of 1941 the Doll Man and the masked crimefighter Midnight both tracked the mysterious figure calling himself Uncle Sam to a laboratory, just in time to see Sam and six other super-heroes, the first of the Freedom Fighters, vanish within a vortex. Doll Man and Midnight ran into the vortex and were transported to the Nazi-occupied Paris of the alternate Earth called Earth-X. The two heroes aided the French Resistance there until February 1942, when they discovered the Japanese were about to attack that world's California. The heroes returned to their own Earth via one of Uncle Sam's vortices, and Doll Man joined a new band of Freedom Fighters in returning to Earth-X to thwart the invasion. Doll Man returned to his own Earth afterward, and served in the All-Star Squadron.

Later that year, Doll Man opted to permanently relocate to Earth-X with a handful of other heroes to combat that world's Nazi menace. The Freedom Fighters continued to fight for several decades, finally, with the help of the Justice Society of America and the Justice League of America, the Freedom Fighters ended the war.

Doll Man and his fellow heroes went to Earth-1 to fight crime but, through a misunderstanding, found themselves wanted by the law. This situation was resolved, and Doll Man returned to Earth-X to help rebuild it.

By willing himself to do so, Doll Man can shrink to a height of six inches and proportionate weight, or return to his normal size and weight. At his six-inch height Doll Man retains the strength of a normal-size man, and he is a superb athlete and hand-to-hand combatant.

In recent years Doll Man has developed psionic powers enabling him to levitate objects or destroy them with mental blasts.

Doll Man has apparently aged little or not at all over the decades, perhaps due to the mystic presence of Uncle Sam in the Freedom Fighters. Doll Man wears a special costume that changes size as he does.
