    A Prussian nobleman who was a favourite of Hitler and was made a concentration camp commandant. A ruthless administrator, he incurred the hatred of his prisoners and was one day assaulted by a recently arrived inmate. A vial of acid was thrown in his face, destroying his features. Hitler ordered his top surgeons to repair the damage the best they could. Then, hoping to compensate for the facial damage, Hitler had his scientists execute a long developed plan that tapped the commandant's latent psychic powers. These new abilites include superhuman strength, invulnerability, optical energy beams and the ability to fly.
