Fictional character biography
Jonny is an ex-police officer and now a down-on-his-luck private investigator working in San Francisco. Deliberately anachronistic, his speech is laced with beatnik and 1960s hipster slang. As described in his first appearance in Showcase, Double is "a down-beat Don Quixote in a society that frowns on windmills. A once white knight in rusty armor searching for that last dragon to slay. The poor man's Peter Pan."
Jonny appeared in four issues of Wonder Woman.
