Zera Oliet, alias Mystelor is a member of the Taurus Gang a group of criminals who are the enemies of the Legion of Super-Heroes. She hails from Titan the moon of Saturn where the people their posses telepathic powers. She rebelled against the moral structure of her home planet and set out to earn a living with her powers. She ended up with the Taurus Gang after reading the mind of Black Mace and considering the excitement of inflicting a bit of sponsored intimidation for one of the most powerful smuggling rackets of the 30th Century.
She joined the Taurus Gang alongside Black Mace, Rogarth, Shagrek, and Quanto. She began to regret her decision once she met the other, much rougher members of Taurus, especially the brutish Shagrek, who was attracted to her and began making extremely unwelcome advances. Meanwhile, Mystelor was interested in Quanto, but the other dimensional being was unwilling to lower himself to date a human.
The Legion infiltrated the gang by having Dream Girl impersonate her. Quanto developed an interest in Mystelor, sensing a new nobility in her. When the truth was revealed, Quanto decided that Dream Girl had been Mystelor as she should have been, and that his mission in life was to reform her, and perhaps the others, and help them find their own nobility. Dream Girl made no effort to stop him from escaping and rejoining Mystelor and the others. Quanto and Mystelor are now peacefully traveling the United Planets together.
Telepathy: Mystelor can read peoples' minds in detail, either by consciously willing it or by mentally picking up their stray thoughts. Via her telepathy, she can also send messages into the minds of others, sounding like her own voice inside their heads, or place knowledge of certain things into people's minds. Using a combination of these methods, she can interpret unknown alien languages.
She has demonstrated the following specialized uses:
- Telepathic Defense: She can manifest her telepathy in a number of defensive ways.
- Telepathic Cloak: She can mask her presence and the use of her abilities from being detected by other psions and psychic entities. She can extend these defenses to others around her as well. Cloaking via telepathy is not perfect and powerful psis may notice and 'see' through this ability.
- Psionic Shield: Ability to erect a psychic shield for protection of herself and of others minds.
- Telepathic Illusions: She can create realistic telepathic illusions and cause people to experience events which are not actually occurring.
- Telepathic Camouflage: She can alter the apparent physical appearance of herself and other people by altering the perceptions of those around her. This can go so far as to make other people believe that the camouflaged people are not there, i.e. invisible.
- Telepathic Manipulation: She can manipulate other people's minds easily, achieving a variety of effects.
- Mind Control: She can control the thoughts and actions of others.
- Mental Paralysis: She can induce temporary mental or physical paralysis
- Amnesia: She can erase any awareness of particular memories or cause total amnesia.
- Mental Sedation: Can telepathically "sedate" her victims so that, if already rendered unconscious, they remain so for as long as he continues to "sedate" them.
- Psionic Blast: She can project psionic force bolts which have no physical effects but which can affect a victim's mind so as to cause the victim pain or unconsciousness and turning someone brain-dead.
- Mental Detection: She can sense the presence of another superhuman within a small but as yet undefined radius of himself by perceiving the distinctive mental radiations emitted by such a being.
Mystelor possesses the strength level of a woman her age, size and weight who engages in moderate regular exercise.
