Powers and Abilities

Arcimboldo is capable of changing parts or all of his targets into other materials, usually based on the works of Giuseppe Arcimboldo.

Examples of changes he has made include turning Pansy into a mixture of candles, fireworks and explosives, changing Cruisers arms into food, changing Daisy into a fish creature, and changing Ramparts left half into a mechanical being. He can also reverse the change at will.


Arcimboldo took his name from the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo, whose work he tries to copy with his powers. Nothing is known of his time before joining Dystopia, but Arcimboldo either received his powers, or had them boosted, by Neron.

In return for this, Dystopia undertook to serve Neron, by trying to kill the sister Violet Jones and Pansy Smith. The two ran a Coffee Bar called Crossroads, where Sovereign Seven worked.

When Dystopia attacked, Violet and some of the Seven were in Gotham. Dystopia quickly overcame Cruiser, Rampart and Pansy, and held them captive until they could also capture Violet. Bosch travelled to Gotham, hunting down Violet, leaving Arcimboldo and guarding their prisoners.

Cruiser and Rampart were freed by Daisy Miller, Violet and Pansy’s cousin, and her friend Casey Rassendyll, who had been in the bar when Dystopia attacked, and they managed to overcome Arcimboldo and Escher. They were then handed over to the authorities.


Cruel and brutish, Arcimboldo enjoys the suffering of his victims, viewing the emotions it evokes as a judgement of his art.


“Other lives, they’re inconsequential. Find the prey. Kill ’em. Eat ’em. End of story.”

“You’re bluffing, slag.”
