The Hat is a young Japanese man with the powers of a demon and a magical hat that he can pull any object from. He is recruited by Manchester Black to join the Elite and the team confronts Superman on several occasions. The Elite is eventually defeated and stripped of their powers. Machester Black kills himself and his sister Vera takes over, volunteering the team for a mad scheme to attempt to take over the world. The scheme is a ploy to unite the people of the world against them rather than destroy themselves in a suicidal rage.
Once the Earth is saved, the Elite is recruited as a Justice League team. The Hat is not allowed in, however, and has returned to obscurity.
