Quote1 You're going to die, Superman. Or you're going to watch everyone else die. It's in the dream. We all saw it. Quote2

Crimes with children as victims or witnesses must be the worst of all. In the case of Winslow P. Schott, the crime was theft. When still a boy genius, Winslow built his first toy, a model plane, and had it stolen from him. The criminal in question, Winslow's next-door neighbor, was a boy about his own age.

Many would say this was merely a child wanted another child's toy. That is completely natural. Are we all so naive? For Winslow, it was far more than the theft, though. It is the compulsion of the criminal that leads him or her to crime. If Winslow's toys could be stolen by another child, why couldn't Winslow steal from others? Moreover, why couldn't he commit thefts using toys that he had built?

Schott's obsession is more than his proclivity toward crime. It's a desite for publicity, a childlike and almost limitless need to be the center of everything. His aspiration to be known for his genius is one of the primary reasons he has spent as much time behind bars as he has.

The Toyman has no special physical abilities save his ability to create toys of all forms and sizes - toys that can crack safes, deliver explosives, murder and far more. His killer toys have all but defeated Superman in the past.

Crime twists the entire world. It can turn the weapons of an adult against a child, and it can turn toys against those meant to protect the children. [1]
