Master Menace
Real Name: Emil Burbank
Search for 'Master Menace' on Amazon


Powers:
Master Menace possesses the greatest known intellect on Earth-712; his sole known rival in this area was the late Tom Thumb, whose genius may have surpassed his. Master Menace possesses tremendous expertise in numberous areas of science and has made significant advances in all of those areas.

Master Menace wears a battlesuit that contains numerous miniaturized, but highly powerful, weapons systems. He can project bolts of concussive force from his armored gloves and surround his battlesuit with a protective force field. Among his many inventions is his dimensional displacement projector, which can dispatch a person to a limbo-like dimension.

Weaknesses:
Master Menace's hair won't stop growing.

Bio:
Originally, Hyperion encountered Emil Burbank (a.k.a. Master Menace) on Earth-712 (sometimes called "Earth-S"). In his first appearance, he battled Hyperion while the hero was filming a movie directed by Burbank's brother, L.L. Burbank.

Burbank claimed that exposure to Hyperion's "flash vision" caused his hair to grow wildly (whether this is true or if it started growing wildly on its own accord remains speculative); the origin of his enmity pastiches the Silver Age Luthor, who blamed Superman for his baldness.

On this occasion, Burbank worked with the evil Hyperion of the mainstream Marvel Universe, and held captive the visiting Thor. Burbank was taken captive but later found himself in an interdimensional vacuum as he attempted to escape confinement.

It is unclear what happened to Burbank between his capture by Thor and the time the extradimensional Overmind took control of President Kyle Richmond (a.k.a. Nightwing) of Earth-712, home of the Squadron Supreme and through Richmond that Earth's United States of America. While the Squadron concentrated on rebuilding America, Master Menace (as he now called himself) concentrated his efforts on conquering the Middle East. He gave shelter to three of Nighthawk's enemies: Remnant, Pinball, and the Mink. He sent the Mink, Remnant and Pinball to Earth-616. Master Menace pulled Hyperion through the interdimensional gulf and revealed his true origins. He supplied the Redeemers with a way to reverse the brainwashing technology of the Squadron.

Notes:
Master Menace is a clear analogue of the pre-Crisis Lex Luthor. The difference is that instead of losing his hair, his won't stop growing.
