Herkimer is a Punkusian but they are better known as Crocodile-Men.

The species hails from the planet Punkus. Herkimer resembles an anthropomorphic crocodile so as such he was dubbed "Crocodile Man". He is Mister Mind's second-in-command, and briefly took command of the Monster Society of Evil when Mister Mind lost his memory.[1] Herkimer was the second-to-last minion to leave Mister Mind, going to join a circus sideshow after deciding crime didn't pay.


  • This version of Crocodile Man, 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.
  • Shazam! #2 was Herkimer's first appearance in a comic published by DC Comics.
