Background information[]

  • The action figure of this character, released by Mattel in the Justice League Unlimited line has confirmed that this is indeed Psycho-Pirate. In Justice League Adventures #20, his identity is revealed to be former psychiatrist Roger Hayden.
  • In the comics, Roger Hayden was a gangster who has been arrested in the same jail as Charles Halstead, a criminal and former linotypist who had once been a criminal adopting the moniker of Psycho-Pirate, and who had fought against the Justice Society of America. Halstead longed for a successor in the title, and trained Hayden in the use of emotions in crime, culminating with the story of the Medusa Masks, legendary items capable of forcing a person to experience determinate emotions.
