Killer Casey was a heavyweight boxer who was active in the 1940s. He was the heavy weight champ partially due to his manager using crooked means to insure that Killer won his matches. When hopeful contender Danny Dougherty went into the ring, he was knocked out and left paralyzed with a fractured skull. His neighbor, police woman Betty Dean suspected foul play, and asked her ally Namor to investigate. [1]

Namor challenged Killer Casey to a match at Madison Square Gardens. Noting Namor's superior strength, Casey's managers came with a way to stack the odds in Casey's favor. During the match, they attempted to weaken Namor with a heat ray, and later splashed ammonia in his eyes. Their efforts only managed to anger Namor to the point where he knocked Killer Casey right out of the ring with his most powerful punch. Namor won the match. Namor gave the prize money to the Dougherty family to help with their medical expenses.[1]

Killer Casey's boxing career after this defeat remains unrevealed.
