WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Infinite Frontier: Secret Files #1 by Brandon Thomas, Joshua Williamson, Valentine de Landro, Marissa Louise, Triona Farrell, and Tom Napolitano, on sale now.
The DC Multiverse has been restructured and as its inhabitants settle into the new universe, its heroes and villains are trying to map out the new Infinite Frontier before anything catches them by surprise.
But it’s not just heroes and villains who are keeping a watch on the multiverse’s noteworthy individuals; Mister Bones, the skeletal director of the DEO is keeping tabs on everything through his own surveillance in Infinite Frontier: Secret Files #1.

Mister Bones first debuted in Infinity Inc. #16 by Roy Thomas, Dann Thomas and Todd McFarlane, but his backstory was much more tragic. He was one of six children who had been exposed to a mutagenic drug by a gynecologist named Dr. Love. This granted them metahuman abilities and the children were then kidnapped and raised by Dr. Love in isolation. But a crazed scientist was not a suitable father figure and most of the children’s personal growth came from radio, television, and books. Eventually, the six of them would learn the truth of their birth and turn on the mad doctor. Bones, who had been born with a cyanide touch that could kill instantly, took Dr. Love to kill him personally but found he could not go through with it. He allowed Dr. Love to live before returning to his “siblings.” This perhaps was one of the first signs of the good within. But that was quickly covered up by what he and his family did next.
Taking on the team name “Helix” the family became a group of criminals who made a name for themselves by trying to extort money from Infinity, Inc. Helix was defeated, but since they were all minors, they were granted the opportunity for rehabilitation. Due to his bad influence over the others, Bones was placed in the custody of Infinity, Inc.
This would be a turning point for him. Although he was not an official member of the team he joined them on various missions, discovering the hero within himself. But this part of his life would not last long. He was lured into a trap and Solomon Grundy used him as a weapon against another hero, Skyman. Bones’ cyanide touch killed Skyman and left Bones guilt-ridden. The team would still accept Bones, but they eventually disbanded, leaving Mister Bones to find a new purpose.
Soon after Infinity, Inc. disbanded, Bones discarded the Mister for the title of Directo of the Department of Extranormal Operations. As head of this government agency, Bones was tasked with monitoring the various powered individuals of the DCU. He ended up working alongside (and being a nuisance to) the Justice Society of America so much that at one point, Mister Terrific told him to stop harassing the team.
But Bones was not limited to teams. He briefly had an interest in capturing Batwoman when he began to suspect that he was her illegitimate half-brother. He later forced Batwoman to try and discover the secret identity of Batman for him. Later it was revealed that he was not Jacob Kane’s son and was mentally unbalanced.
And now he has returned once again, but this time seems to be doing his job in a much more stable manner. Reality is expanding every day and new challenges are on the horizon. As the director of the DEO, it is Bones’ job to keep track of the major players in the upcoming Infinite Frontier event, including President Superman and the other heroes making waves across the multiverse.
