The CRIME Hat is an ancient artifact of deep spiritual significance, whose wearer is destined to become a powerful criminal leader.
In the 1940s, it had been worn by the spirit-being known as Mr. Crime, only taken from him after his knock-down drag-out epic battle with Golden Lord in 1954. In the present day, it passed down to the Crime Empress and was stolen from her by Lucky Chain Letter Lucy.
Mr. Crime was the host of the paradigmatic Golden Age crime comic, Crime Does Not Pay, issues of which can be read here; the CRIME hat is based on the distinctive hat he wore.
