Captain Boomerang (Owen Mercer) is the son of the original Captain Boomerang, George "Digger" Harkness, and also took up his father's mantle shortly before the Infinite Crisis.


Owen was born to George Harkness and Meloni Thawne-Allen when Harkness was briefly trapped in the 30th Century.
When Harkness found himself an obsolete villain in the modern world of super-villains, he felt it was finally time to reach out to the son he never raised, who had somehow managed to follow him to the 20th Century, and the two bonded. Taking up his father's legacy, Owen became the second Captain Boomerang. Captain Cold, brother to Golden Glider (who was believed to be Owen's mother), took Owen in as one of the Rogues.
