The man known as Hypo was a thief and killer who operated in Dick Tracy's city. He had light hair that he wore long and swept to one side in the front.

Hypo's modus operandi was to use dummy copies of the newly-founded magazine “Glance” to gain access to his wealthy victims' homes, posing as a photographer. Hypo killed Mel Clark (the son of the magazine's publisher) as well as another home owner and several of his cohorts during his crime spree.

Hypo was finally apprehended by Dick Tracy and the police force.
