Baron Bedlam was the son of a regent installed upon the throne of Markovia by the Nazis during the 2nd World War. When the war ended, Viktor Markov - the rightful king was restored to the throne with the help of the allied forces. Bedlam fled until he deemed the political climate right for him to return and stage a military coup. His attempts were thwarted by Brion Markov (Geo-Force), the youngest heir to the Markovian throne who had received super powers through the efforts of Dr. Helga Jace a loyal Markovan scientist. Baron Bedlam was last seen in the hands of angry Markovian people and is presumed dead or still in prison.
