The Persuader was a member of the Fatal Five.

The Persuader was one of five outlaws recruited by the Legion of Super-Heroes to help them combat the Sun-Eater in exchange for amnesty for their crimes. The villains later turned on the Legion and formed the Fatal Five, becoming one of the Legion's most notable threats.


  • Atomic Axe: The Persuader wielded an "atomic axe" on a long shaft. This axe was sharpened to less than a nanometer, and could reportedly cut through anything, occasionally including purely metaphoric or intangible things, such as a person's air supply, the force of gravity, Raven's Soul Self, or the separation between dimensions, and followed the Persuader's mental commands.
