Sound Generation and Control: The Fiddler possesses magical abilities that he channels through his violins. The musical vibrations he creates can shatter solid objects, create force-fields and hypnotize others.

Black Power Ring: The Black Lantern Rings are capable of wielding the black energy outside of the Emotional Electromagnetic Spectrum. When Black power rings choose wearers, they present themselves to the deceased without a charge. The rings (which constantly ask for "flesh") are recharged by killing living beings and removing their hearts; each heart restores .01 percent power to every ring in the Corps. Black Lanterns are also able to read the emotions of the living as a coloured aura that correlates to the emotional spectrum (red for rage, violet for love, etc.). Black Lantern Rings will regenerate a corpse each time it is damaged, they can create constructs, but this ability is rarely used and they allow flight.
Isaac Bowin was the son of British aristocrats, but early in life he developed wanderlust and travelled to India. He soon found himself living on the streets, turning to petty crime to keep himself fed. Thrown into prison after a merchant caught him stealing, his cellmate was a mysterious fakir who agreed to teach him the mystic lore of the East. Isaac was a proficient student, soon mastering magic, and after carving a fiddle from materials in his cell, he and the fakir made good their escape. Now calling himself the Fiddler, he murdered the fakir and the merchant who had him arrested before travelling to America to make a fortune in crime.
The Fiddler spent years troubling the Flash, in between jail stints, before pretty much retiring from the criminal scene. The Fiddler finally met his end when he came out of retirement to join the Secret Six. Disappointed in his performance during their first battle, the teamís leader, Mockingbird, ordered him killed. Deadshot carried out the execution immediately. He was resurrected by a Black Lantern Power ring.
