In several parts I will be posting the original appearances of Mr. Bones from the Infinity, Inc. title.
This is from Infinity, Inc. #16-18. It's written by Roy and Dann Thomas, and illustrated by Todd McFarlane.
Hector Hall and Lyta Trevor are having their engagement party with the other Infinitors (since this story is Pre-Crisis, Lyta is still the daughter of the Golden Age Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor).
Lyta receives an engagement present from her mother.
Lyta explains that kangas are native to Paradise Island.
Later, Lyta and Hector get into an argument, and Hector storms off. Lyta returns to their home with the kangas, where she hears a sound.
Lyta tries calling the police, but all the phone lines are busy.
Later, Hector returns home to apologize when he sees that the house is trashed. Obsidian, who had arrived a moment before, shows him a photo he found taped on the door; it's a picture of Bones holding an unconscious Lyta by her hair.
On the back of the photo is the message Don't call the fuzz-- Just cool your feet-- Don't tell a soul-- Or she's dead meat!
The message is signed "Mr. Bones-- Head Honcho of Helix!"
A chained Lyta wakes up on a couch.
During the game, Arak accuses Tao of cheating and the two get in a fight. Penny breaks it up.
Hector is getting Obsidian to help him weld a new costume when he gets a message from Bones telling him to come alone and to bring a hundred grand with him if he wants to see Lyta again. Hector doesn't trust Obsidian not to follow him, so he knocks him out and leaves. Afterwards, Obsidian wakes up and contacts the other members of Infinity, Inc. for help.
Hector tries rescuing Lyta and gets captured.
Baby Boom and Kritter are causing chaos at a deli.
Obsidian sees Arak causing trouble and follows him back to Helix's hideout, where he helps rescue Hector and Lyta. After the three battle Arak and Tao Jones, the two members of Helix flee.
Meanwhile, the other Infinitors are battling the remaining members of Helix.
