The second Mad Hatter, from the late 20th century. Drake was a fireman, husband, and seemingly loving uncle from Los Angeles. Secretly however, he molested his nephew Johnny on fishing expeditions alone with the boy. After one of these excursions Johnny confessed his uncle's crime to his grandfather (Charles Dodgson). That night when Drake went visit his father, Charles accused him of pedophilia and thrust him through the mirror into Wonderland.
In Wonderland, Drake found himself trapped between the March Hare and a wall of undead corpses. He was grabbed by the wall and bargained with the hare for his aid. The hare freed him from the wall and in exchange he offered him the 10/6 hat and sends him on a quest to fetch a girl named Lacie. Drake then wandered the jungle for months, becoming exhausted, and ever more insane. He came across a mirror and there, speaking with his reflection, finally gave up and gave in to Wonderland. In doing so he was able to don the mantle of the Mad Hatter and inherited all of the previous Hatter's skin suits. Months later he returned to March Hare and the tea party with Lacie and declared himself leader of the little group.
