Ladies, gentlemen, others, creatures of indeterminate inner demons and fixations--My name is Dr. Psycho. And you're going to help me with a little experiment. All I ask? That you keep an open mind.
Psycho doesn't like women, and he's a pretty decent telepath and has some strange and goofy abilities from the Sliver Age.
Erm, I guess that's it? They tried some strange reboot when he went to N52 stories where he was some genetic clone or some crap. I hated it, and I don't even think the writers thought it was good either, it got dropped pretty fast.
