"Mr. Smyth"

I was really always under the impression (mostly because I happened to pick up an issue of Who's Who near the time this issue came out), that "Mr. Smyth" was Sterling Silversmith, an older, obscure Batman villain whose gimmick was being obsessed with silver, specifically enough to inject enough quicksilver (read: mercury) into the Crime Doctor's system to "kill" him, though apparently all it did was drive him crazy & turn him into a huge sadist. One can tell that he's just as similarly obsessed with white (which the original wore just as obsessively) & I thought that he certainly looks almost the same...
