|“||Don't struggle... I have your mind, I have control.||”|
|Friends||League of Assassins|
Cypher first appeared in the episode Control. He tried to capture Dr. Jason Burr for the League of Assassins, in order to steal the plans for the Ion Cortex, to work for the organization from within his mind. Though he managed to gain temporary control over Katana, and later Batman, the two heroes were able to defeat and capture him. Then he made small appearance in the episode Reckoning, where he and other super-villains from Blackgate prison were hired by Ra's al Ghul to kill Batman. For killing Batman, Cypher took over mind control of Magpie and Phosphorus Rex, but Batman used his batarang to attack Cypher, and pull the mind control tentacles off Magpie and Phosphorus Rex. Batman was about to put the handcuffs on him, but Mr. Toad used his super wave attack to through Batman in car. Batman understood that he would not handle to fight all of his enemies. However Batman tricks all the criminals and they all turn on each other. Batman then leaves them fighting.
Cypher wears a lightly armored suit of dark and bright, glowing, green. His main weapons are long, tentacle-like cables that extend from his palms. These cables allow him to "plug" into a person and hijack their minds. Once in contol of a person, Cypher is able to manipulate them, forcing them to follow or even fight for him. On his own, Cypher doesn't seem to be that strong of a fighter, preferring to let his captives fight for him. He has a slender build and is extremely agile and flexible. His suit allows him to adhere to walls and ceilings. Cypher's control is both his greatest weapon and his greatest weakness. While in control of a person, he feels everything that they do. Blows and injuries sustained by them hurt him as well. He also feels other emotions from them, including love.
