Colonel Randall Weird is one of the lead characters in Black Hammer, a NASA astronaut, and a former Spiral City defender. As a young man he was pulled into the Para-Zone, which detached him from linear reality, rendering notions of time and space irrelevant to him. He tried to bring his lover, Eve, into the Para-Zone, but she was ripped apart as she crossed the threshold between dimensions. During the events of the Cataclysm, knowing that if the heroes of Spiral City stayed there, then Anti-God would return eventually, he used his connection with the Para-Zone to teleport his fellow superheroes to his spaceship, where Madame Dragonfly cast a spell that trapped the heroes of Spiral City into a collective dream.
- Colonel Weird was originally planned to be named Randel instead of Randall.
