Harlan Combs was a thrill-seeking, wealthy, family man who bought Joseph Rigger's Firebug costume at a Keystone City auction, in order to launch a string of arson fires throughout Gotham City. When his family babysitter, Bonnie Lewis, discovered the costume inside a secret panel in his closet, he bludgeoned her to death with one of the suit's tanks and disposed of the body, feigning a kidnapping gone wrong. GCPD'S Major Crimes Unit detective Charlie Fields was killed by Mr. Freeze while investigating a tip regarding the kidnapping, which actually never occurred at all.
With help from the first Firebug, Joseph Rigger, Combs was identified as Bonnie's killer, driven to implicate himself by detectives Marcus Driver (Fields' former partner) and Romy Chandler, and arrested.
