Carl Thorne

Search for 'Carl Thorne' on Amazon

Carl Thorne met Susan Linden at a croupier table. Eventually they got married. He abused her and eventually killed her. Susan sought refuge with Dr. Philip Sylvian, who, after Thorne had murdered Susan, grafted her essence onto orchid flowers, the first of which became the crime fighter known as Black Orchid.

After the first Black Orchid infiltrated LexCorp, where Thorne wanted a job, he killed her. When he discovered that there were more duplicates with only partial awareness of Susan's identity, he managed to destroy all those that had not been plucked, and went after the two that had become people.

Eventually, he was shot to death in the Amazon by Brad Anderson, one of Luthor's men.

Had a penchant for singing songs made famous by Frank Sinatra, his favorite singer, especially when making a kill.
