Rand Garrow was a criminal with an excellent mechanical engineer, as he was able to create all sorts of machines. He was captured by Batman and sentenced to 20 years at the Gotham State Penitentiary. However, his contributions to the prison's workshop granted him an early parole and once free, he adopted the alias of "Crimesmith" and started a new wave of crimes using some of the most complex and unique of his inventions. Garrow operated some of his machines from his secret base of operations known as the crimecave, but it wasn't too long after this that his secret hideout was discovered and he was once again captured by Batman.


  • This version of Crimesmith, 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.
