A villain first published by Fawcett Comics
and later by DC Comics
first appeared in Captain Marvel Adventures #22
Mr. Mind is an alien from a planet where the dominate race is one of
intelligent worms. Mind was born a mutant with powerful mental powers,
allowing him to project his will on others, controlling their actions and
even to the point where he could inhabit their bodies. Mr. Mind was
about three inches long, green with red dots down the side. The worm
wears specially designed glasses, as he is near-sighted, and wears a
voice amplifier shaped like a 1930's radio around his neck.
Mr. Mind has tried on multiple occassions to use his mind powers to take
over the Earth, but has been opposed by Captain Marvel and the
Marvel Family. Mr. Mind has used his mental abilities to organize
other villains to help in his quest, calling the group the Monster
Society of Evil. Members of the group included Dr. Sivana, Captain
Nazi, and others.
The threat of Mr. Mind was seemingly ended when he was captured by Captain
Marvel and electrocuted for his crimes. Unbeknownst to his opponents,
the electricity actually sent Mr. Mind into suspended animation. Mr. Mind
tricked the world into believing that he was dead by having a mind-controlled
accomplice create a "stuffed" version of him and put it on display. Mr.
Mind then wrapped himself in a web and slept for twenty years.
Upon awaking, Mr. Mind found that Captain Marvel and the Marvel Family
had been trapped for a similar period of time. The two once again
clashed and Captain Marvel again defeated the evil worm.
Mr. Mind has made a post-Crisis appearance taking control of Billy
Batson's uncle Ebenezer and plotting to take over the world by
controlling all the people of Fawcett City. Mr. Mind was defeated by
Captain Marvel, who froze all of the worms of the town thereby
rendering Mr. Mind unconscious.
