Count Vertigo completely destroys his victim's sense of balance temporarily. He also can fly.
Count Werner Vertigo is the insane ruler of Vlatava, an Eastern European country which was recently devastated by the Spectre. Using a device which simulates vertigo in his opponents (ironic since he himself has an inner ear disorder), he battled the American super-heroes Green Arrow and Black Canary on a number of occasions, before becoming a member of the Suicide Squad, working for the American government in exchange for a reduced prison sentence. Most recently he has shown up as a member of the new Injustice Society.
