Villians and Blackguards #51: Doctor Hipponosis

Villains and Blackguards Incorporated (VABI) is an organization found on Earth 32aa which has dedicated itself to protecting the interest of those of differently enabled morality and enhanced humanity. They take care of legal expenses and investments. It has become a very successful organization and is considering spreading to other Earths. In case they do here are some of it's members

"Funny Animal" universes are not popular among VABI members to visit.  The reason is just they are too chaotic and frankly silly for even the more realistically challenged members of VABI.  Still there are always exceptions and they work both way.  Doctor Wilhim Hipponosis is a seven foot tall humanoid hippo who has come to our worlds because frankly he got tired of the chaos of his home universe.

Actually for a VABI member he's rather unassuming.  He has bought from us a whole package of fake ids and credit and uses those to reserve a suite at an expensive hotel.  He then comes to check in at around three in the morning where there is little staff.  Using his super hypnotic powers he has the few clerks there thinking they just checked in a large, fat man.  Once in his suite everything else is easy.  He keeps hypnotizing the the staff that he deals with to the point where they are just programmed to think of him as a big, fat man.  He uses the office in his suite to set up various scams and cons and has the poor grifted yutzes come to his suite one by one to get a razzle dazzle hypnotizing that leaves them no wiser but definitely poorer.  His cons are so low level that they generally fall below the notice of super heroes but it should be noted that besides his hypnotic powers he's  a seven foot tall hippo who can hit like a freight train.

Doctor Hipponosis has done some work directly for VABI as sort of an envoy to the funny animal universes those times we have found ourselves pained to contact them.  He has been most useful to us and we wish him well in his goal of just living a comfortable and somewhat humdrum life.
