Bio: The man known as Crystal Ball was born to a Romalian father (who supposedly had "second sight") and an American woman from Bangor, Maine. He was the seventh son of a seventh son, which gypsies once believed gave someone supernatural powers. Crystal Ball, was in fact a hypnotist who briefly worked for Cobra, and many believed he could actually read minds, making him a natural interrogator. He worked with Cobra occasionally, and joined in a mission to kidnap the President of the United States at a major league baseball game. Cobra's plans were stopped by members of the G.I. Joe team. Though there have been a number rumors that Crystal Ball is now dead, his current status is unknown.
