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 faculties near Coney Island. The two scientist's lab experiments, of using cybernetics to enhance beings, resulted in the creation of augmented abilities, human-level intelligence and strength, for a pair of lobsters, Don and Bill. [2]

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 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. [2]

At some point afterward, the trio became a part of 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. [3]


Don had greater intelligence and strength than a normal lobster.

His mutation apparently gave him only blue coloration.
