Willy Hooker was a carnival worker and a bounty hunter who used the identity of the Executioner to murder wanted criminals and claim the reward.

Hooker was in fact the man responsible for breaking the criminals out of jail in the first place and later he would kill them. His activities were discovered by Batman and Robin, who captured Hooker and stopped his criminal racket.


  • This version of Executioner, 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.
