Movie Buff

Real name: Unknown[1]
Species: Metahuman
Homeworld: Earth
Universe: Earth-1A
Sex: Male
Hair: Brown
Eyes: Brown
Base: Manhattan

This man may as well be called the Movie Buff; because he was obsessed with movies, or so it seemed.

He lived in a high rise in Manhattan, he had no friends, and he was pretty much a loser, devoting all of his time to watching films on video cassette.

Powers and Abilities

Super Powers

  • Possession: Once his soul's inside the TV or movie, he could possess any character in the TV or movie, he could then exit through the screen and enter the real world, making the character a corporeal being that he can control. When he returns to his body, the movie character disappears, and he has control of his own body once again; bringing life back to his seemingly lifeless body.
  • Shapeshifting: If he was out terrorizing the town, as Godzilla; far away from his own body, but he wanted to be less conspicuous, because the Justice League spotted him, he could simply locate another movie screen and take on the form of another film character.



  • Power Limitation: Although this was never actually addressed directly, it seems obvious that he could only be a movie character for so long before he'd have to return to his own body. One would think that being disconnected from ones own soul for so long would've sure caused him to die.
