History

On April 26, 1967, disguised as famous celebrities, including Lyndon Johnson, Elizabeth Montgomery and Jimi Hendrix, the Doppel Gang committed a series of bank heists. In the course of one robbery, they fought the Silver Agent.

Seven years later, defense lawyer Vince Oleck used that and various other super-crime stories to establish reasonable doubt in the trial of a mob boss's guilty son. ("Knock Wood")

Powers

They have the ability to mimic people, whether through supernatural means or technological means.
