History

Gaunt was a professor whose work was devoted to the study of the human brain. He was finally able to develop an electronic device that could boost the brain's power exponentially, and tested it on himself. The device vastly improved his cognitive abilities and also endowed him with a limited form of mental telepathy, which he began to use for his own personal profit by robbing banks and engaging in other criminal activity.
These robberies brought Gaunt to the attention of the costumed crimefighter Sandman and his teen sidekick, Sandy. Following a fierce battle, Gaunt was captured, and sentenced to prison for his crimes. He remains there as of this writing.
