The Toyman, real name Winslow Schott, Jr., was an enemy of Superman with a penchant for using weaponized toys and grudge against Intergang.

Winslow Schott, Sr. was a toymaker who dreamed of building a toy factory of unparalleled beauty but had no financial means for such a project. In desperation, he turned to Intergang, who agreed to finance the construction of the factory. That decision would ruin him; Bruno Mannheim really wanted to operate a numbers racket, and used the toy factory to launder the profits. When the FBI brought down the numbers racket, Schott was blamed for it and convicted of the crime. The toymaker was sentenced to ten years and he died a lonely death in prison.

His son, Winslow Jr., was robbed of his childhood, and by surrounding himself with toys, he felt safe. He planned to get even with Intergang, namely Mannheim, and attempted to murder him using various toy related weapons. When Superman interfered, Winslow Jr. also vowed revenge on him.

Toyman joined Metallo's Superman Revenge Squad, and with his giant robot, he seemingly achieved the impossible: Killing Superman. However, it turned out that the robot's tachyon beams only displaced Superman forward in the time stream, and Superman eventually returned form the future.

Toyman later joined the Legion of Doom, and sided with Luthor in the power struggle against Gorilla Grodd. He survived the destruction of the Legion by Darkseid, and fought off several parademons in Cairo.
