Real Name: Vogler
Identity/Class: Extra-terrestrial (Zorrian)
Occupation: Would-be conqueror
Affiliations: His monsters
Enemies: Amazing Three
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: Newton City, formerly Zorr
First Appearance: Jackpot #23 (I.P.C., 6th October 1979)
Powers/Abilities: Vogler had a large variety of high tech weapons at his disposal, including devices to generate illusions (including disguising one object or individual as another), lasers, an indestructible spaceship and "speech-thief" rays. He commanded a variety of giant monsters, some generated by a device that turned his dreams into reality and others disguised robots, as well as armies of robotic duplicates. He also had a device that threw meteors at the Earth.
History: An evil scientist, Vogler terrorised his own world of Zorr, unleashing rampaging monsters literally created from his own evil dreams. Eventually captured, he was sentenced to exile, placed in a hibernation chair inside his own indestructible spaceship, and fired off into space, intended to only wake after landing on an uninhabited planet where he would be forced to live out the rest of his life as a hermit. Unfortunately, after twenty years his ship was knocked off course by a meteorite storm, deflecting him towards Earth. The delicate settings of the hibernation chair were disrupted, and he woke as the ship passed into Earth's atmosphere. He swiftly returned to his villainous ways, but the Zorrian scientists had been monitoring his journey and empowered three Earth children so they could stop him. Vogler tried to conquer the Earth many times, but each time was thwarted by his new arch foes, the Amazing Three.
During his final battle with the Amazing Three, Vogler's lair began falling apart around him. There was one place of relative safety, but he was too large to fit and so used his time gun on himself to transform himself into a baby and crawl into the tiny space. The Amazing Three found him in the aftermath and handed him over to the authorities in the hope that the now infant Vogler would grow up into a productive citizen.
