Blackbriar Thorn could manipulate the weather and cast illusions. His body was composed of mystical wood that could regenerate and was incredibly difficult to destroy. He could grow to titanic proportions, and drew his strength from contact with Earth. If Thorn lost contact with the Earth his powers greatly diminished.
Thorn led a powerful group of mystic druids that were killed by Roman soldiers. Thorn evaded the soldiers, and turned himself to wood and hid in a forest, hoping they would pass him by. The death of his fellow druids caused a earthquake that swallowed up Thorn, and he was buried for hundreds of years. Modern day archaeologists dug him up and Blackbriar Thorn reawoke, causing chaos in Gotham City. He was defeated through the efforts of Superman and the Demon.
