Season Eight

Randy in the Isis group

Randy was a member of a group of kryptonite infected metahumans who attended Chloe Sullivan's group therapy session at the Isis Foundation. When citizens of Metropolis were being stalked by a mysterious serial killer, including one of the group members, Mary Pierson, Randy pretended to be the killer so as to acquire the attention he always wanted.

Randy's shadow form

He later attacked Davis and Jimmy Olsen, before escaping at the sight of Clark Kent. Jimmy and Clark searched for the shadow creature. Clark used his x-ray vision to see through Randy's invisibility and then knocked Randy out by throwing a large tire at him with incredible force and speed.

Eva Greer makes Randy an offer.

After Randy was knocked out, Jimmy shot his photo. Randy was taken into custody, but Tess' assistant asked him to join Tess' team of "superheroes" that was started a few weeks before, with Bette Sans Souci. Later, it was revealed that Davis Bloome was the serial killer.


  • Although he was asked to join Tess' team at the end of Prey, Randy did not appear in Injustice, making it unclear whether he accepted her offer or not. In the episode Eva Greer pulls up the profiles for eight members of the team, with three being unidentifiable.
