The Cannoneer was a human canonball who used his skills for crime.

The Cannoneer was a street performer, who worked as a human cannonball. He often performed his act in Gotham's Central Park with help from his brutish assistant, Dum-Dum. Cannoneer eventually turned to crime and planned a heist on the Brotherhood Express Train, which contained valuable art pieces. In order to succeed, he tricked a lovely circus midget into taking some shrinking pills and blackmailed her to steal the art. His plan succeeded, but soon, the Gotham City Police Department started investigating the case with help from Batman and Atom. Batman confronted the Cannoneer and managed to defeat the criminal, while Atom rescued the shrunk midget. After she was returned to her normal size, Cannonneer was taken in by the GCPD.


  • Cannon large enough to shoot people as human cannonballs.

  • This version of Cannoneer, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
