Mister Mind hails from a worm-race born on a distant planet. Mind was born a mutant and posesses extraordinary mind powers (hence the name)
and can control the minds of others as well as project his mind into other beings. Mr. Mind has poor eye-sight and thus wears glasses. He also uses a
special amplifier (in the shape of an old-time radio) that he wears around his neck to communicate with human beigs.
Because of his species and small size, Mr. Mind is often not afforded the respect due him and has on numerous occasions taken
out his anger on Captain Marvel.
Mister Mind is a conqueror worm and has set his sight on world-domination. He has been beaten back by both
Captain Marvel and the Marvel Family. Where will Mr. Mind hatch his next evil scheme...only Mr. Mind knows!
Mister Mind first troubled the inhabitants of Earth by forming a band of super-villains who had
previously battled Captain Marvel singularly. This Monster Society of Evil boasted a membership of
Dr. Sivana, Captain Nazi, Ibac, Mr. Banjo, Nippo as well as an alligator man.
Through a long, drawn out, 2 year battle, Captain Marvel faced his many nemesises and visited many locales as he tried to capture the dastardly
Mr. Mind. Early on Captain Marvel discovered that the nefarious Mister Mind was, indeed, a worm!
Near the end of Mister Mind's reign, he captured Billy Batson, drugged Billy with ether and was about about
to fry the young boy with a radio's power cord when Billy woke up!
Mind led Captain Marvel on chase
through the city until a bug exterminator slowed Mind down with bug spray. Captured, Mister Mind was put to death in the electric chair for his crimes and murders. Unknown
to his executioners, electricity simply put Mind into a state of suspened animation. Mr. Mind used his
great mind powers to order a minion to create a stuffed version of himself. Mind, then, spun a web
and placed himself in hibernation for twenty years.
Mister Mind returned from hiberation only to find that the good Captain and his family had
also been in suspened animation for 20 years -- placed there by the evil Dr.Sivana! Revealing himself by
retriving his glasses and amplifier from the stuffed worm in the museum, Mind started on his plot
to destroy the United States. Captain Marvel caught the worm by turning the St. Louis arch into
a giant tuning fork!
Cap even traveled back in time to and shared an adventure with the Golden-Age All-Star
Squadron - this time battling the Earth-2 Superman!
Shortly thereafter, a cataclysmic, universal catastrophe called the Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Cap joined the heroes from many earths to battle the evil Anti-Monitor - a being hellbent
on destroying all the parallel universes and restarting the universe from scratch. Cap and
the other heroes defeated the Anti-Monitor but not before the remaining earths were merged
together. For the first time, Cap and his family lived on the same earth as Superman and Batman.
But this union was not without its problems.
Mister Mind appeared at the bottom of a tequila bottle, that Dr. Sivana was drinking from, in a story that was removed from history during a short
time when Captain Marvel had moved to San Francisco.
The Past Four Years
A modernized Mr. Mind resurfaced in the DC Universe by taking over the mind of Billy Batson's Uncle Ebenezer while
at the same time planning an invasion of Earth with Dr. Sivana. Mr. Mind's plan was to take control of
the citizens of Fawcett City via mind control. Captain Marvel saved the day by freezing al the worms.
Billy and Mary's foster parent's hometown of Fairfield was leveled by the malevolent robot, Mr. Atom
-- a pawn of Mr. Mind. Luckily for both Billy and Mary, their parents were away
at the time. Mind also took control of Sarge Steel -- Mind's goal...to take over the White House!
