Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Mesmero is a telepathic mutant allowing him to read and control minds, scan and manipulate memories, and project his thoughts. He is capable of manipulating multiple minds at once as seen in the episode Mindbender when he placed Jean Grey, Shadowcat, Spyke, and Nightcrawler under his control. When his mind was linked with Apocalypse his powers were greatly enhanced allowing him to defeat Professor Xavier in a telepathic battle.
Mesmero was a member of the Circus of Mystery known only as "the mindbending Mesmero", which attended Bayville. Shortly prior, he journeyed into a tomb in Giza and learned about Apocalypse and where he was. He journeyed to Tibet and offered to help release Apocalypse, which was accepted.
