Komodo is a male comic supervillain that features in DC Comics.
Simon Lacroix was a male human that was born into poverty who had nothing but his ambition and his smarts. He eventually joined Queen Industries where he managed to rise up in the ranks of the company. Lacroix had attracted the attention of the company's head Robert Queen who had been disappointed in his own teenage son who was living the life of a spoilt child with no other interests beyond his own enjoyment. As a result, Lacroix was made into Robert's protégé in both business and eventually in the quest for the Arrow Totem. Simon accompanied Robert Queen and Walter Emerson on the expedition to the Island in search for the legendary original home of the Arrow Clan as detailed in one of Queen's ancestors vault.

Despite his efforts, he had not found the Arrow Totem which he desired in the quest for enlightenment. He also sought membership into the Outsider Clans and was working with rogue members in the group to achieve that goal. (Green Arrow v5 #21)
At some point, he raided Q-Core in order to plunder it of its arsenal of Trick Arrows for his own use. Perched on a building opposite Queen Industries, Komodo shot an arrow into the back of CEO Emerson and forced him out of the window when he was having a private meeting with Oliver Queen. This gave the impression tot he security staff that Oliver had pushed Emerson out the window and killed him. Komodo then fought Green Arrow on the rooftops with a fight emerging between the two archers. Despite the Green Arrows skill, he was overpowered by Komodo who nearly killed him but Oliver was saved by the intervention of Magus.
