Willard Walter "W. W." Wiggins is a toy manufacturer in Central City and the illegitimate father of Digger Harkness.


While serving as a soldier in the U.S. Army, Willard Walter "W. W." Wiggins was stationed in Australia and had an affair with a young married woman, Betty Harkness, whose husband Ian was also soldier away at war. He later became a toy salesman for Wiggins Games in Central City, Ohio, but returned to Australia on a business trip. There, he reunited with Betty, who became pregnant with their illegitimate child and pleaded with him to take her away to America. Wiggins refused saying that business was more important to him.[1]
