Tom Turbine was a member of the Justice Guild who operated as a crime-fighter.
During his off-hours at the Justice Guild headquarters, he worked as a scientist and inventor who hypothesized that there were an infinite number of alternate dimensions similar to his own, occupying the same space but vibrating at a different frequency, and developed a trans-dimensional gateway that would allow travel between the alternate dimensions. Unfortunately, he was unable to come up with a power source that was capable of powering the gateway. He along with his fellow Justice Guild members have died during a missile attack that devastated Seaboard City in 1962. Ray Thompson, a child who idolized the Justice Guild and was turned into a mutant who could mentally create virtual-reality constructs, recreated Tom Turbine as well as the rest of the Justice Guild team while trapping the living citizens of Seaboard City in this virtual-reality recreation for 40 years, preventing them from aging. When the Justice League team appeared from their reality into that which the Justice Guild inhabited, they discovered the truth about the Justice Guild members and exposed it to their recreated selves. When Ray Thompson attacked the Justice League following this exposure, the recreated Tom Turbine along with his other team members fought against Ray and incapacitated him, causing himself and his team to vanish and to restore Seaboard City back to its original devastated appearance. Fortunately, the actual Tom Turbine's trans-dimensional gateway was still intact under the wreckage of the Justice Guild headquarters. Green Lantern John Stewart, using his power ring, energized the gateway long enough for himself and his Justice League teammates to return to their home dimension.
