As a schoolboy, Doctor Psycho was laughed at by his classmates because of his diminutive stature and unusually large head. Psycho especially took offense to being laughed at by girls. Throughout his subsequent life, Psycho felt both desire for beautiful women and a psychotic hatred of all women.
Psycho went to medical school and began research into psionics. He fell in love with a young woman named Marva, who regarded him merely as a friend. Psycho decided to hypnotize Marva into loving him. He then discovered that he could use Marva as a medium through which he could draw ectoplasm, the substance found in the spirit world, and materialize it on Earth in whatever form he willed. Psycho uses the ectoplasm to form a heroic body around himself and has battled Wonder Woman under the identity of Captain Wonder.

Powers and Abilities
Psycho is a skilled occultist and uses psionic powers to traumatize and terrify those who stand in his way. In his Pre-Crisis appearances, he was a hypnotist skilled in the occult who used his victims to draw ectoplasm into the physical world, which he shaped into various beings and disguises.
In The New 52 continuity, Doctor Psycho possesses psychic abilities including the regular telepathy, mind control, astral projection, telekinesis, levitation, projecting destructive blasts of psionic energy and creating psionic energy constructs such as armor, although Edgar has stated that he possesses every psionic power imaginable. However, he does not have the energy required to use his abilities to their fullest. He can overcome this weakness by siphoning mental energies from other individuals with psionic powers such as Superboy.
