As a teenager, Harkness robbed a general store and escaped with the money obtained thanks to his boomerang. Nonetheless, his father banished from the house as a result of the incident. Harkness went to Central City in the United States in search for his biological father but there, he learned that the Wiggins Game Company had been searching for a spokesman. Harkness took the chance and auditioned under George Green for the job which he landed. Wiggins was impressed by his son's boomerang-throwing skills and gave him the title "Captain Boomerang".
