Miracle Man (Marvel)
Real Name: Joshua Ayers
Search for 'Miracle Man (Marvel)' on Amazon

The Miracle Man was a master hypnotist, able to mesmerize others with a glance and then cause them to experience whatever he wished them to. He could cause a variety of illusions, and those under his influence would see, hear, touch, and presumably even taste or smell the effects of these illusions. He could seemingly perform a number of superhuman feats or resist a variety of attacks via his illusions.
On occasion, he has had access to much greater power, including telekinesis, animating inanimate matter, and restructuring matter, beyond simple illusion casting.

The Fantastic Four first encountered the Miracle Man when attending one of his performances. It wasn't clear whether or not his "magic" was illusion or if he possessed real super-powers, but regardless, Mr. Fantastic, Reed Richards, commented " is fortunate for us and for the world, that the Miracle Man is not a criminal! For if he were...he might be the one foe we could not defeat!!" His words proved prophetic because soon after, the Miracle Man declared war on the human race and committed a jewel heist. This put him squarely into conflict with the Fantastic Four and the battle ultimately ended when the Human Torch blinded him with his flame. His mysterious powers suddenly vanished and Mr. Fantastic explained the source of them as nothing more than hypnotism.

The Miracle Man was later killed by the Scourge of the Underworld in The Thing #24.
