Patrick MacGuire, also known as Scrapper, was a founding member of the original Newsboy Legion.

He and the rest of the newsies became the legal wards of Officer Jim Harper, the first Guardian. While they had figured out he was the Guardian shortly thereafter and often encountered him in the persona on their adventures through Metropolis Jim always refuted their allegations, thinking they'd be in more danger if they knew his identity.[1]

As an adult MacGuire became one of the directors of Project Cadmus.
