Doctor Voodoo was a powerful witch doctor, who started a series of crimes in Gotham City. Using a special staff that forced people under his control, Voodoo stole the Gotham’s Diamond District and attempted to flee the city with the loot, but his plan was thwarted by Batgirl.[1]

Seeking revenge against Batgirl, Voodoo was forced to turn to his mentor, the Voodoo Master, as the heroine was somehow invulnerable to his magic. Under the Master's instructions Voodoo set out to cause an emotional breakdown on Batgirl, as it was the only way to break her defenses.[2] Voodoo's next move was the kidnapping of a small girl, hoping to break Batgirl emotionally, but the plan backfired, as Batgirl became more determined to stop Voodoo and she beat him to a pulp, ending his criminal career and her desire for revenge.[3]


  • Superhuman Strength: Voodoo draws his powers from mystical forces, which grant him unnatural strength.


  • Hypnosis: Using a special musical staff, Voodoo controlled people and bend them to their will.
  • This version of Doctor Voodoo (Earth-One), including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
