Doctor Roberts src

Professor Roberts was the father of Martha Roberts and the employer of her boyfriend Darrel Dane, the Doll Man.

Professor Roberts was the mentor and employer of Darrel Dane, better known as Doll Man. He and his daughter Martha were present when young Dane conducted the experiment that turned him into Doll Man.[1] He was involved in several of Doll Man's earliest adventures as well.[2][3][4][5][6]

There was at least one period of time in the 1940s during which Professor Roberts no longer knew the secret identity of Doll Man.
