Dr. Hopkins was one of the three toad scientists known as the Creators, who designed and built Komplex. Along with his two colleagues Dr. Wartimer and Dr. Croakley Hopkins was imprisoned by Komplex's first Storm Toads and left adrift aboard a prison ship, frozen in suspended animation for a hundred years until a freak accident awoke them. Hopkins and his colleagues sought to get to Genus where they would be safe from Komplex, and to this end they kidnapped Blinky to serve as the navigational computer for their damaged ship. They eventually rescued Bucky O'Hare and his crew from the Toad Air Marshall's frivolous use of the deadly matter-transmutor, after which they returned Blinky and were escorted safely to Genus by O'Hare.
