George Harkness was sent to America from Australia by his mother in a final attempt to separate George from his estranged stepfather. As a teenager, Harkness put his years of boomerang throwing to use when he was hired by Wiggins Game Company as a boomerang demonstrator. Harkness was given a costume and was dubbed "Captain Boomerang".While demonstrating, Harkness picked pockets, he was confronted by the Flash. Since then Harkness became a criminal and created many types of boomerangs each with a certain gimmick.
When the Flash was acting on several television commercials, one of the villains portrayed was Captain Boomerang among Heatwave and Mirror Master.
Recently, the real Captain Boomerang served on the Task Force X. Captain Boomerang entered the Task Force shortly after successfully stealing a fleet of armored cars but was defeated by the Flash. He went along with Flagg to steal the Annhilator from the Justice League Unlimited flagship Watchtower. Boomerang eventually served his five years with Task Force was released with a pardon. He soon returned to Central City and teamed up with fellow super villains, Mirror Master, Captain Cold and Trickster. Alone, Boomerang launched several timed exploding boomerangs at the Flash as he accepted the Key to Central City from the Mayor. It was a diversion and he launced a gigantic boomerang posed to crash the Flash straight into a mountain face. Flash was disabled the boomerang and encountered Batman and Orion.
