"Boss" Sapro was the leader of a gang of crooks that operated out of the state of Ohio. When the Ohio river began to flood, Sapro and his men would use the opportunity to loot the banks and shops in the flood effected areas. They would meet minimal opposition until the robot named Electro would come to the area to help with the relief efforts. When the robots operators would spot Sapro and his men, the robot would be sent to apprehend them. Although Sapro would attempt to escape with his loot, he would eventually be captured and thrown in jail. There Sparo would vow to take control of the Electro robot and use it for his own ends[1].

To this end, he would send a message out to his minions who were still free. They would then storm the Electro Building and take Electro's inventor Professor Zog hostage. They would force him to use Electro to free Sapro. Sapro would then use the Electro robot to commit robberies. The robot would prove unstoppable by authorities, and he would use it to capture Rupert Haden, the District Attorney that put him away. Sapro's crime spree would be cut short however when Jago leader of the Dragon-Men of the planet Ligra would come to Earth seeking to capture Electro for his own uses. Jago's minions would easily defeat Sapro and his men and capture both Zog and Electro[2].
