Whispers was a nephew of Mumbles. He was a law-abiding citizen, with a successful career as an announcer for golf tournaments. His soft-spoken nature made him well-suited to this work.
The Feets Diamond AffairEdit
When the criminal Feets Diamond learned that Mumbles had returned to the city and was trying to contact a relative, he became convinced that Mumbles had told Whispers the location of the stolen jewel The Star of Ranjipooie. Feets abducted Whispers and tried to beat the information out him. Whispers knew nothing, and spoke so quietly that he could not be understood. Feets, frustrated with Whispers, tossed him from a moving car. Whispers survived, and this attracted the attention of police.
Two more nephews of Mumbles were later targeted by Feets, though it was not established if these were Whispers' brothers or cousins.
- The storyline involving Whispers is extremely difficult to reconcile with established continuity and has been disregarded by the subsequent creative team.
