The Fiddler uses his hypnotic tones to subdue the Flash.

Sometimes confused with "Mind Control", Hypnosis is a term used to describe the ability of some characters to force a victim into a trance-like state which can include a number of effects including sleep and/or suggestive states.

Some supposed hypnotic indicators and subjective changes can be achieved without relaxation or a lengthy induction by means of simple suggestion or waking hypnosis, a fact that increases the controversy and misunderstandings around hypnosis and the hypnotic state. Hypnosis functions primarily as a learned skill, but some characters may also possess this ability as a power.
