Hypnotism: Prince Evillo has mastered various hypnotic powers and technologies and is capable of temporarily swaying heroic personalities into criminal pursuits.
The well-meaning rulers of the shadowy, sunless world of Tartarus, Evillo's parents feared their son would lack the strength to firmly govern a society that seemed to respect treachery and cruelty above all things. So they gave their son a name that they hoped would inspire fear in their citizenry and trained him to anticipate and reciprocate the darker aspects of human behaviour. During his training, Evillo proved to be quite a prodigy, blackmailing and torturing the palace staff during his childhood, and arranging the deaths of his parents before he was out of his teens.
Evillo also became a master of Tartarus's strange mixture of technology and sorcery, developing the power to grow horns out of his head that could emit painful rays and banish victims to a hellish "Realm of Darkness".
Evillo turned his planet into a haven for the United Planets' most notorious villains, and eventually assembled his own team of villains, "The Devil's Dozen". Before he could finish forming his team, Evillo and the Dozen fought the Legion of Super-Heroes.
