Helmut Kripptmann, better known as "Harry Kay", was a physician of questionable integrity that helped Dennis Barclay in setting up his clinic. He worked for the Sunderland Corporation for some time and met Swamp Thing several times under difficult circumstances.
His experiences returned him a measure of his dignity, leading to his eventual sacrifice to save Swamp Thing from Anton Arcane.
- Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
