In 1880's London Aleister Hook, the man known to the children he abducted as Uncle Hook, abducted children and brought them to an abandoned church where he performed satanic rituals. After being seen abducting a child, Aleister locked himself and his young brainwashed children in the abandoned church. A mob of men, women and parents broke down the doors to the church to reclaim their children who were still pledging allegiance to Uncle Hook. The mob restrained Aleister by hanging him upside-down over a pentagram. The mob debated his fate and then proceeded to burn down the church with Aleister still inside. While Aleister cried out for relief, the demon Blaze answered his cry, transforming him into the winged demon Skyhook. He fled the flames of the chapel and stowed away on a ship to America. He laid dormant for 100 years, eventually emerging in Metropolis. He began to kidnap children again, using his powers to transform them into demonic being resembling himself.
