Reginald

An android created by Kryptonian criminal scientist Gra-Mo and his two subordinates in an attempt to enact revenge upon Jor-El through his son, Superboy in a 1963 chronicle.

Reginald first comes to the attention of Superboy, when "he" and his "father", a European gentleman known only as "Pater" (actually, Gra-Mo in disguise) come to Smallville on vacation. Displaying tremendous superhuman strength, "Reggie" commits several acts of vandalism until Superboy arrives on the scene, and the two briefly battle, with Reggie proving that he is just as strong as the Boy of Steel. Desperately wanting to prove that he is stronger than the hero, "Reggie", after handing his glasses over to Johnathan Kent for safe keeping, he goads Superboy into hitting him as hard as he can. Superboy complies with the request, and knocks the "boy" into the sky with one punch. The force of the punch disintegrates "Reggie", causing Superboy to believe he has taken the life of another being. Superboy later realizes the truth about "Reggie" when Jonathan Kent "...showed me "Reggie's" glasses! You slipped up, Gra-Mo! You made his glasses out of ordinary window glass! Therefore, I knew there was nothing wrong with "Reggie's" sight! Then, when I heard that a nearby chemical plant had been robbed of certain elements, I realized those elements could be used to make an android!" Gra-Mo and his henchmen are soon after banished to the Phantom Zone for their crimes (SB No. 104/2, Apr 1963: "The Untold Story of the Phantom Zone - Part II: The Kid Who Knocked Out Superboy").
