Doctor Faustus
Real Name: Johann Fennhoff
Search for 'Doctor Faustus' on Amazon


Powers:
Faustus has no superhuman powers but has a genius intellect, and is extremely charismatic and can modulate his voice in a highly persuasive manner. He has a Ph. D in psychiatry.

Faustus regularly employs hologram projectors, hallucinogenic gas dispensers, androids, and elaborate props. He also hires henchmen to impersonate various people as a part of his scheme to drive victims insane.

Faustus has suffered extensive leg injuries, forcing him to use a cane or wheelchair for mobility. He can stand or walk without assistance for only a brief time.

Bio:
Johann Fennhoff was born in Vienna, Austria. He became a psychiatrist and criminal mastermind. He has proclaimed himself the "Master of Mens' Minds," and is known for the use of psychological methods of combat. His plots typically involve manipulating his foes into positions where they will, essentially, kill themselves.

In his first appearance, Faustus induced nightmares and hallucinations in Steve Rogers in an attempt to drive him insane. However, he was easily bested in a physical confrontation. He was later revealed to be treating the amnesiac Peggy Carter, and captured Sharon Carter and her parents in an attempt to destroy Captain America. Faustus then acquired stolen weapons from Stark International with which he planned to threaten New York City, and organized a private flight of American criminals; however this plan was thwarted by Captain America.

Faustus was the mastermind behind the neo-Nazi group National Force, directing them behind the scenes. He was responsible for the creation of the villain known as the Grand Director to lead the National Force, and brainwashed S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Sharon Carter and programmed her to commit suicide (though Carter was later revealed to have survived). Faustus also temporarily brainwashed Captain America, and battled Captain America and Daredevil. His legs were injured by falling gas canisters during this confrontation.

Faustus later mentally conditioned Everyman to be his operative, later known as Zeitgeist. He used his absorbascan to draw in psychic power from other people, in an attempt to mentally defeat Mister Fantastic and prove his worth to the Secret Empire. He battled Spider-Man and Mister Fantastic.

Faustus then allied with the Red Skull, and occupied the Skull's mansion. Faustus attempted to coerce Captain America into committing suicide through the use of ghostly holograms.

Faustus is also known for his involvement with the villain and future Thunderbolt Moonstone.

He was presumed dead for a number of years, but reappeared again, now living undercover as a S.H.I.E.L.D. psychologist, and in the employ of the Red Skull. Faustus is tasked with manipulating Sharon Carter, and claims responsibility for Carter's increasing romantic attachment to Captain America.

Faustus is revealed to be responsible for manipulating Sharon Carter into assassinating Captain America.
