Powers and Abilities

The newest Mister Fear is reasonably intelligent and ruthless, and has significant amounts of money. He would be little more than a local crime lord or white-collar criminal if he didn’t have the Mister Fear weaponry and Fear Compound – a chemical that induces unreasoning, crushing fear until purged from the body.


The original Mister Fear accidentally discovered the Fear Compound, and, creating his masked identity, joined up with Eel I and Ox I in fighting Daredevil. He was killed by Starr Saxon (the Machinesmith), who took his identity as Mister Fear II – but that was the fight in which he was killed by a fall, and started his existence as an android.

It was not over for the Mister Fear alter ego, however. A lawyer who hated Matt Murdock, and (correctly) though he was Daredevil, managed to take hold of the equipment – however, he too fell to his death. But even this didn’t mean there would be no more Mister Fear – Alan Fagan, a nephew of the lawyer, got hold of the Mister Fear equipment. He attempted to blackmail New York with a tacnuke, but was stopped by Spider-Man and Hawkeye.


See illustration.


A quasi-cinematic baddie, his plans hinge on the use of fear and intimidation to reap power.

DC Universe History

Mister Fear is a very minor villain – he might have been one of these anecdotal Teen Titans foes.
