    — Dragon King[src]

    Dr. Shiro Ito was an Imperial Japanese scientist who created horrific weapons that contributed to the death of millions.

    Ito's file in the Justice Society database

    Shiro Ito was born in 1901 in Japan. He became a scientist and a member of the Japanese Military who was active in the 1940s and 50s. During that time, he created a number of weapons, such as Bacilli bombs that spread plagues throughout China in 1932 and 1933. He was eventually captured and was believed to have been executed on March 13, 1947.[2]

    Dragon King[edit | hide]

    Thanks to his experiments on himself, Ito was able to survive his execution and soon joined the villainous Injustice Society of America. During his time as a villain, Ito transferred the Ultra-Humanite's brain into the body actor Delores Winters and subsequently an albino gorilla.[1] Ito also fought against the Seven Soldiers of Victory on numerous occasions, once utilizing a living weapon that he had designed to eradicate New York.[5]

    Cindy Burman

    Decades later, Ito had a daughter called Cindy Burman with a woman named Suzanne. Despite Suzanne's attempts to hide Cindy from her father, Ito eventually captured her and began to perform experiments on his daughter, giving her superhuman abilities and implanting metal shivs into her arms. Suzanne was later killed when Cindy lost control, with Ito marrying Bobbie Burman and sending Cindy to grow under her care.[6][7]
