The Master Jailer is the greatest prison designer and one of the greatest escape artists of the 20th Century. As he has no powers Master Jailer rarely confronts his foes directly. He prefers to surprise and ensnare his victim in a trap with all of the prisonerís limitations, vulnerabilities or apparent lack of skills in mind.
At a time when Superman was suspected of being an impostor after his body was found to be still in his tomb, Carl Draper was hired by S.T.A.R. Labs to design a holding cell for the super villain Conduit, when his daughter, Carla, asked him if he could build a prison that could hold Superman. Draper initially designed a trap that only the real Superman could escape from, explaining this to Superman by way of a hologram of a costumed figure named Deathtrap. However, when Superman escaped the trap, Draper became obsessed with proving he could capture the real thing.
