The lobster Don was a scientific experiment that was aimed at granting people superpowers through cybernetics. Ramon Lefszycic and his colleague, Tadashi Fujita, were brilliant college students with a research grant and facilities near Coney Island. The two scientist's lab experiments, of using cybernetics to enhance beings, resulted in the creation of augmented abilities, including human-level intelligence and strength, for a pair of lobsters, Don and Bill.
The two scientists were infatuated with the super-heroine, Marvel Girl, and were upset when she transformed into the Phoenix. Attempting to create their own Marvel Girl by kidnapping a girl and implanting cybernetics in her, the scientists performed similar experiments on Gomi, their lab assistant, trying to bestow him with telekinetic abilities. They failed, however, in that Gomi's cybernetics simply produced a destructive and uncontrollable bolt of kinetic energy. The scientists were denied further funding and Gomi ran away with the lobsters, rather than have them eaten.
At some point afterward, the trio joined the Fallen Angels, a group of petty superpowered thieves, led by the villain Vanisher. Don made friends and accompanied them on adventures, but tragedy struck when Devil Dinosaur, who joined the team following a trip to Dinosaur World, accidentally stepped on the lobster, killing him.
Don had greater intelligence and strength than a normal lobster.
His mutation apparently gave him only blue coloration.
