Magic: The Black Lama possesses a variety of abilities, including telepathy, teleportation, and the ability to either project images or become immaterial.
Golden Globe: The Black Lama possesses the Golden Globe of Power, an inter-dimensional transporter, which he used to travel between Earths. The device also instils mystic ability, making the Black Lama a powerful hypnotist who could use meditation and emotion to generate power, and to develop power in others.
King Jerald was ruler of the Kingdom of Grand Rapids in the North America of Earth-7511. King Jerald felt overwhelmed by his responsibilities of the crown and used the Golden Globe of Power to transport himself to Earth-616. King Jerald disguised himself as the Black Lama and opened a school for meditation. The Black Lama searched among his students for a person to replace him as ruler of his kingdom. Eventually, the Black Lama was driven mad due to a cosmic imbalance.
