Parasite (Post-Crisis)(01 - Rudy Jones)
Real Name: Rudolph C. 'Rudy' Jones
Search for 'Parasite (Post-Crisis)(01 - Rudy Jones)' on Amazon

Absorbs the energy, powers, and knowledge of those he touches.

The Rudy Jones Parasite had several distinct phases of existence. From 1987-95 he was merely a S.T.A.R. labs janitor who was exposed to chemicals which Darkseid used to impart the power of absorption to Jones. This experience left him with the vampire-like need to consume energy to live. He was eventually captured and put into a laboratory to prevent him from using his powers.

In 1995, though, he broke out of confinement and merged with his scientist babysitter, Dr. Freeman, to permanently join the ranks of the most intelligent villains in the DCU.

A third being--a shapeshifter--was added to this already-combined being a few years later. This allowed him to not just steal a person's power, but to perfectly mimic their appearance as well. He posed as Lois Lane for a considerable length of time.

He appeared to die after Superman unmasked his charade.
