Hector Hammond is a super-villain with strong mental powers who fights Green Lantern. Exposure to an alien meteorite caused his brain to evolve at an accelerated rate making him into an intelligent super-being trapped inside the limitations of his human body. His telepathy and telekinesis allow him the abilities to read and control others' minds as well as flight. Trapped forever grotesquely deformed and spending most of his life in prison, more than anything he craves to feed on the life experiences of others. This greed allows him to be possessed by the entity Ophidian, physical embodiment of avarice. In the New 52, he is the enemy of Superman. He has been a member of the Royal Flush Gang, Secret Society of Super-Villains and the Orange Lantern Corps. Hector Hammond was created by John Broome and Gil Kane, first appearing in Green Lantern (Volume 2) #5. (1961)
