Powers was a corrupt security guard who took advantage of his experience as a museum watchman to perform late-night team burglaries of valuable artifacts from the Museum of Egyptology, under the nom-du-crime of "Black Sphinx". He was brought to justice by Mister Scarlet and Pinky, but not before gunning down three of his former co-workers.
