Powers and abilities Despero is a powerful villain. The Flame of Py'tar gave Despero great physical strength that has been shown in one storyline to be superior to Superman and Captain Marvel, being able to simultaneously defeat both, along with Wonder Woman and Power Girl. Despero also has a high level of durability, although he is not invulnerable. Also very intelligent, he is skilled as both a warrior and tyrant. His hypnotic third eye is directly connected to his brain, giving him telepathic powers that on one occasion have been depicted as surpassing those of the Martian Manhunter. It is also capable of projecting realistic illusions and entrancing virtually any sentient being. It can also project beams of telekinetic energy enabling the teleportation of matter anywhere in the universe. In his "spirit" form, Despero can possess any living being, granting the victim the strength and telepathic abilities of his own body. In his first appearance, Despero used a teleportation machine which resembled a chess set. It used pieces shaped like the Leaguers to move them to different locations. The machine was subsequently shown to be in the possession of the Weapon Master.
Powers and abilities Thanos possesses a wide range of abilities, some of which are common to the Titanian Eternals, and others that have been acquired through bionic amplification, mysticism, and augmentation by Death itself. In addition to vast levels of superhuman strength, stamina, and durability, Thanos is capable of energy and matter manipulation, teleportation, and telepathy. Even though Thanos typically prefers to avoid physical confrontation, preferring to outwit his enemies, he is a formidable combatant. He is particularly adept in using a combination of his physical and energy-manipulating abilities in these situations. Thanos can also temporarily increase his powers by absorbing energy from an unknown source of quasi-mystical nature. Thanos possesses a superhuman intellect that is almost obsessively dedicated to the annihilation of life and the mastery of any technology or mysticism that will enable him to achieve this goal. Thanos is a superb tactician and is well-versed in many areas of arcane lore. He possesses technology that allows him to time-travel and travel through alternate dimensions, and teleport over vast distances. Thanos also trained his adopted daughter Gamora to become one of the universe's most adept and feared female assassins.
Random encounter, no prep for either of them!
