Magic: Belasco is a master of sorcery, and maintains several spells of immense power, including detection and mind control spells. He also uses magic to transform his body or that of others, usually transforming others into demonic versions of themselves. Belasco has also ensnared victims in crystal, extracting their skeletons while the victims remained alive. Belasco has been known to control fire, summon blasts of magical energy, raise the dead, and summon the powerful Elder Gods (a process which requires five bloodstones in a ritual.)
According to some accounts, Belasco was a sorcerer in 13th century Italy who used his knowledge of alchemy and black magic to contact the so-called Elder Gods, extra-dimensional beings bent on invading and dominating Earth. He struck a bargain with them: he would enable their passage into the Earth dimension via a spell using mystical bloodstones, in exchange for them granting him immortality and unbelievable powers. The Elder Gods designated Belasco, the father of a new race of demons, and made him partially demonic.
