Hypnosis: Mesmero's mutant ability allows him to hypnotize any human who make eye contact with him. The effects of the hypnotism vary according to Mesmero's wishes, ranging from partial or full amnesia, giving a person new memories, altering a person's personality or forcing victims to follow his orders.
Illusion Generation: Mesmero can create illusions with sight and sound components, but not touch or smell.
Mental Blasts: Mesmero can project a blast of mental energy.
Nothing is known about the mutant Mesmero before he became a costumed villain. He was hired by what appeared to be the mutant villain Magneto and offered the position of second in command of the Demi-Men, a horde of what appeared to be powerful mutants. In reality, Magneto and the Demi-Men were robots built by roboticist Samuel "Star" Saxon, who would later become known as the Machinesmith, in order that they could steal for him. He made the robots appear to be mutants, who were then the object of great fear. Saxon decided that he needed a real mutant to lead the robots, and he planned to work behind the scenes, giving orders through the Magneto robot. Mesmero apparently did not know that Magneto was a robot or that Saxon was the real mastermind.
