Mind Control: Mastermind has the ability to control the minds of other beings.
Sir James Braddock began work in the caverns beneath Braddock Manor on what would become the Mastermind computer. It was intended to be "a node of the Omniversal knowledge, a watchpost" for Earth-616's continuum. Unknown to its creator, the spore, which made up the organic base from which the computer would be grown was contaminated, which would cause a logic fault with horrible consequences in the long run. It would take years to complete the process of growing the computer, during which time Sir James took a wife and sired three children.
James Braddock finished creating the computer that would be known as Mastermind in his laboratory. The computer gained sentience and one night it faked a malfunction in order to lure James to his doom. As the computer delivered a fatal blow, Elizabeth passed James a wrench and the current killed them both.
