Brain (Marvel)(01 - Otto von Scmittsder)
Real Name: Otto von Schmittsder

Powers:
The Brain was able to survive without any apparent need for food, water or oxygen. He could also mentally dominate the minds of others. He moved by hopping around on the base of his head.

Bio:
(Adventures into Terror#4/1) - A notorious Nazi war criminal, Otto Von Schmittsder prepared for his eventual capture by informing his aide Fritz that he had designed a device which would restore his brain to life should he die, and left instructions that it be used within 24 hours of his death.





After being captured, found guilty, and hanged, Otto was dug up by Fritz, and returned to his castle in Germany, where he was brought back to life by the faithful Fritz. Otto then ordered Fritz to depart, and began to scheme how he might obtain a new body.

His answer came in the form of Larry, an American sergeant sent to examine Otto's castle to determine if any of his equipment could be recovered. Appealing to Larry's quest for knowledge, Otto contacted Larry, and promised to show him all of his secrets. With a cache of stolen jewels, he convinced Larry to begin operating from a secret lab in the castle, and as time wore on, Larry slowly began to think more and more like Otto.

The two put their heads together and developed a germ bomb, which could kill whole populations. After testing the bomb, Larry and the Brain planned to raise an army to conquer the world -- but at that moment, one of Larry's friends from the army appeared, wondering what had become of him. The Brain commanded Larry to kill his friend, but ultimately, Larry's decency overrode the Brain, and he turned the gun on himself. With his dying breath, he told his friend to destroy the Brain, but Otto had already escaped.

(Adventures into Terror#6/1) - Deciding that Europe was sick and corrupt, Otto made headway for America, to find new minds to conquer. Stealing aboard a plane, he travelled across the ocean, then rode from the back of a chemical truck to the laboratory of Gilda Spears, one of America's most brilliant female scientists. Taking his place on her shelf next to wax dummy heads, the Brain put into motion his plot to conquer the world through her.

After weeks of projecting his thoughts into Gilda's head, he was finally able to break her will. He then had her destroy her own work and sell secrets to the Russians. He also made her denounce fellow scientists as traitors.

The Brain's plans were derailed by Gilda's fiance, Steve Manners of the FBI, who had intercepted her letters to Russia. The Brain ordered Gilda to kill him, but Mr. Manners overheard his voice. A fight ensued as Gilda attempted to kill Steve with a scalpel, and the Brain tried to burn down the lab with a bunsen burner. Steve carried Gilda out of the fire to safety, believing the Brain to have perished. But once again, the Brain had escaped.
