Mr. Stupid NoHead (31 October 1972 - 6 January, 2020) was an extremely powerful NoHead who served as the last NoHead Master and came closer than anyone to ruling the world. Recorded by history as the most powerful and evil NoHead who had ever lived, his entire life was the culmination of a fifty-year plan to rule the world unopposed.
Born in 1972 in a nursing chamber in the NoHead Base, Mr. Stupid NoHead knew of the NoHeads from birth. In 1983, he met his father, Mr. Crooked NoHead, who was the NoHead Master at the time. Under Mr. Crooked NoHead, Mr. Stupid NoHead began the training to become a NoHead. After his training, NoHead married Mrs. Twisted NoHead, although he did not truly love her. They did birth three children, however — Hell Burnbottom, Brute Gunray, and Mean King. Along with his other affairs, NoHead trained his eldest son, who was Hell Burnbottom. Crooked and NoHead, both exceptionally skilled and powerful, ruled the NoHeads for years. As Crooked privately searched for the key to eternal life, NoHead manipulated the First NoHead War, and around the same time, NoHead murdered Twisted and usurped her power as third-in-command. In the final days of the war, NoHead protected the Third NoHead base when the police rampaged it in 2013. However, he was too late to save anyone, and the purge had been initiated. During his tenure, he built one of the most powerful military forces the planet had ever seen.
After Mr. Stupid NoHead slaughtered nearly all of the police, he declared himself Emperor of the entire globe. As Emperor, NoHead effectively wielded absolute control over the entire world and virtually everyone who lived within it. During his tenure, he increased his army and ruled unopposed for nearly two decades. He ruled through terror symbolized by the Second NoHead Base as well as the Imperial Palace. However, he later discovered that the Gladiator was training Abalan, an exceptionally powerful mutant as a secret apprentice. When NoHead discovered Abalan's existence in 2004, he forced the Gladiator to fake Abalan's death and then request that Abalan assemble a personal task force to identify and destroy any rebels to his Empire. NoHead's plan backfired when Abalan, healed from his near-fatal injuries and espousing the teachings of the light side, vowed revenge against NoHead and confronted him in the NoHead Base, ultimately fleeing and exiling himself. After the Empire suffered a devastating defeat in 2006, in which the reformed police destroyed the Second NoHead Base, the Emperor ultimately lost his absolute control over the planet.
In 2019, Mr. Stupid NoHead learned his sidekick, Rotta Hecks, was pregnant, and carefully watched her baby after birth. Knowing the mutant needed to die, NoHead lured him to the cityscape and they engaged in a vicious duel, with the baby winning, driving NoHead off, and becoming Baby Intelligence. Later that year, NoHead met a gifted individual named Sebiscuits Cardarphen, and once he got to spend more time with him, began to turn him to the darkness and finally revealed his intentions to teach him, telling that the dark teachings that he and the NoHeads had pursued could help Sebiscuits to find his true purpose in life and not spend his life alone, both of which were in Sebiscuits’ interests at the time. A failed attempt by Paige and three of her friends to execute NoHead ensued, and Sebiscuits pledged himself to NoHead’s teachings. All police officers were ambushed and murdered by Human Replicas to the point of virtual extermination. Without the police to oppose him, NoHead began work on the ultimate superweapon that would destroy the MBH and render him unopposed.
Soon after Operation: Purge, NoHead attacked the Kellerman house, but failed to kill Lindsay Kellerman, his new objective. Soon after, the NoHead base was attacked by the S.M.S.B. NoHead murdered his sidekick, Rotta Hecks, out of anger. This left him to contend with Baby Intelligence, who ripped him from his physical body. However, Mr. Stupid NoHead was brought back to life days later by his sons. Less than a week after this, he was ambushed by the S.M.S.B. again, now united with Kellerman. After subduing Lindsay, NoHead cast Baby Intelligence out of the house using a barrage of logs and a wagon. The baby rolled into a death trap, but when Kellerman Apparated them back for the ultimate showdown, Baby Intelligence soon re-engaged the evil NoHead Master. The villain utilized a sword and attacked both Baby Intelligence and Merlin's second apprentice. However, he and Kellerman put forth their might and drove him into a vat of fire. The Dark mutant burned to ashes after falling into the pit, and his remains exploded. This also fulfilled the prophecy of the Chosen One and brought about the imminent end of the NoHeads.
While Mr. Stupid NoHead had been defeated, the NoHeads would attempt to maintain the charade of his survival, while struggling to fill the void left by his absence. However, their plans ultimately came to nought. Mr. Stupid NoHead’s career left a bloody trail of damage. In 2031, he attempted to take Jonathan’s life as his own, but Jonathan intercepted him and, with the Sword of Abomination, vanquished NoHead’s spirit forever. Following his death, NoHead's legacy and ideas became the base of what became the Knights of Plague, led by the Gladiator, who was also a practitioner of the Darkness. The reign of the Gladiator would end with his arrest during the Battle of Transylvania.
Mr. Stupid NoHead was born under the NoHeads, a sect of mutants who utilized the Darkness to its limits. He was a direct descendant of their founder, Mr. Demonic NoHead. Following decades of interbreeding and involving both aliens and humans, the NoHeads would no longer be identified by their race, but by their dedication to the first philosophy. This order would survive in many different incarnations throughout world history. Despite seeing the rise of a new leader several times, the NoHeads would always be characterized by their lust for power and their desire to destroy the police. The NoHeads were the most infamous of all criminals. Throughout their long history, the NoHeads commanded several organizations and initiated a war.
Centuries before his birth, Lord Gorn sensed that a powerful mutant would be born that would perpetuate the Legions of Metta. This would turn out to be Mr. Stupid NoHead, but the prophecy was inaccurate. NoHead would join the NoHeads and his death would see the second major step to their ultimate demise (the first was the NoHead Cataclysm).
Early life (31 October, 1979-1982)Edit
Mr. Stupid NoHead was born in 1979 to Mr. Crooked NoHead and Mrs. Wretched NoHead, two members of the NoHead tribe. He spent the first few years of his life in a nursery under the care of robots, in a secret location in the NoHead base. Despite his ignorance of his parents, NoHead did have some grasp on his abilities beyond that of normal NoHead children of his same age, however, and an unusually high degree of control over them. NoHead could move objects with his mind and cause them to travel floating wherever he wished, cast low-voltage lightning, manipulate creatures (including certain NoHead students) as he wished, and use his power to inflict harm on other children in the nursery. After getting into a fight with fellow student Dire, he used his powers to remove the boy's goldfish from its bowl, killing it. On one occasion, he took two future students into a tunnel within the NoHead base, where he performed an act so horrifying that the two orphans were traumatized into silence. Young Mr. Stupid NoHead also stole from other infants and hid their things in his "cubby" like trophies.
Three years after NoHead was born, Mr. Crooked NoHead began to train him as an apprentice. He was raised brutally in their fortress and trained in their evil ways. The training of Mr. Stupid NoHead was focused on the honing of his powers and combat skills, as well as his natural talents. One winter, in the first five years of his role as an apprentice, NoHead accompanied his father, only to be subjected to intense cold and nearly froze to death. Mr. Crooked NoHead, unaffected by the biome’s freezing temperature, probed NoHead’s mind, forcing him to relive his worst memories, with the goal of extinguishing any lingering feeling of emotional attachment (though NoHead was not capable of love, so the latter failed). The NoHead’s overall goal was to use his son’s hate, anger and desperation for survival as a tool to destroy any vestiges of good in him, ensuring his evil was irrevocable. Were NoHead to give up, he would prove himself unworthy of the mantle; the young man endured, asking only when the trials would be over. Crooked also demonstrated a use of the mind-clouding technique by having his apprentice struggle to reach him, only to discover he had been a dopplegänger, and also subjected NoHead to deprivation of food, water and sleep.
In regard to the history of the NoHeads, Mr. Crooked NoHead was more than aware of the fact that Mr. Stupid NoHead’s desire to kill him would grow in time; only a true NoHead wanted to seize the mantle of Master through murder. But like many of his NoHead predecessors, NoHead was appalled by the tenet that commanded the training of the NoHead Master's eventual killer. NoHead had no intention of dying by his son’s hand, or anyone else’s for that matter. Instead, he intended to break the cycle started by Mr. Demonic NoHead and Mr. Ghastly NoHead decades ago. In order to do so, Mr. Crooked NoHead wished for no secrets or feelings of jealousy and mistrust to exist between Mr. Stupid NoHead and himself. In the long run of the Grand Plan, Crooked envisioned himself as the “power behind the throne” while NoHead carried out the villain’s interests.
Mr. Stupid NoHead, ever the academic with a desire for knowledge, yearned to learn more of the NoHead lore. However, his Master carefully concealed much information from his apprentice, and only intended to share his full knowledge at a gradual pace, depending on how much NoHead progressed. Among Mr. Crooked NoHead’s artifacts were databases that contained much of what Mr. Stupid NoHead desired to know. The police mistakenly believed that these databases sat in the Archives room in their station, but those were actually clever mental manipulations the NoHeads had caused.
Destruction of the First NoHead Base (1994)Edit
The search for the Orb Edit
Mr. Stupid NoHead brought Bladepoint to the NoHead base, restraining him in an interrogation chair. When he awoke, he asked where his friends were, and NoHead told him he had no idea. He sensed he still wanted to kill him, and Bladepoint said it was because he was being hunted by a monster in a cloak. The dark warrior took off his hood and then asked about the Orb, but Bladepoint only gave him a few details of the Mystic's physical appearance. NoHead told him that he knew about the orb and that the NoHeads had the other two Prizes were in their hands (the latter part being a lie). Knowing he was resilient, NoHead warned him that he could take whatever he wanted from his mind. He touched his face and began probing his mind. At first, he felt loneliness and fear, and then he could see a bustling city and Bladepoint's private quarters. Then he sensed Sheriff Missile. NoHead could tell that Bladepoint looked at the Sheriff as a father figure, but he said that Missile would have only disappointed him. Finally, Bladepoint began to become more strongly resistant to his mental attacks. He soon turned the mental probing around on him, using the power within himself to see that Mr. Stupid NoHead himself was afraid — afraid that he would never be as strong as Mr. Demonic NoHead.
- Mr. Stupid NoHead: "Sir, he is extremely powerful. He has not harnessed it yet, but the facts still remain!"
- Mr. Ghastly NoHead: "If what you say is true, bring the boy to me!"
- — Mr. Stupid NoHead and Mr. Ghastly NoHead[src]
Stunned by the reversal, Mr. Stupid NoHead left Bladepoint behind in the interrogation chamber and spoke to the Supreme Leader, who reacted with incredulity that a mere police cadet resisted him. NoHead told Mr. Ghastly NoHead that Bladepoint was a very powerful mutant, stronger than he even knew. The Supreme Leader asked what happened to the prophet, and Mr. Crooked NoHead, who had just entered the chamber, told Ghastly that NoHead believed he only needed Bladepoint and allowed the prophet to escape. Concerned that the police might be able to master the Orb, Mr. Ghastly NoHead ordered Mr. Crooked NoHead to unleash the NoHead base’s weapon against the police station. Mr. Stupid NoHead swore that he could still find the map in Bladepoint’s mind as long as he had his master’s guidance, so the Supreme Leader ordered Bladepoint to be brought to him. When NoHead returned to the chamber where Bladepoint was being held, he was nowhere to be found — he had escaped on his own. Enraged, NoHead drew his sword and destroyed the chamber. Meanwhile, Crooked returned to the command center where Mr. Ghastly NoHead was, and Ghastly agreed to join the battle. He insisted that Crooked take his place, and the latter reluctantly agreed.
Battle of the First NoHead BaseEdit
Mr. Stupid NoHead commanded the robot troops to be on alert for Bladepoint as he began making his way through the base, as he knew that the longer he was able to tap into his powers while escaping, the more powerful he would become. During the search for Bladepoint, Commander Saul Cameron and Police Skyfighter Corps arrived at the NoHead base and assaulted its thermal oscillator, hoping to destroy it and set off a chain reaction that would blow up the base entirely before the weapon could destroy the police station. Also on the base were Sheriff Missile, Joseph, and Jean, who had arrived before the Skyfighter Corps in order to find Bladepoint and lower the shields. NoHead, who sensed Mr. Ghastly NoHead was in danger, prepared to enter the oscillator himself, ordered his troops to find Missile and the other intruders.
Meanwhile, Sheriff Missile, who hoped to bring his friend back to the light, saw the dark warrior in the oscillator and called to him. Mr. Ghastly NoHead said he had been waiting for this for a long time, and Missile told him that his friend was alive, but Ghastly did not believe it. Missile continued pleading with Ghastly to come back, and Ghastly, who was being watched by Joseph, Jean, and Bladepoint, finally took his sword and held it out to Missile, and Missile grabbed hold of it. However, Mr. Ghastly NoHead drew his sword and impaled the Sheriff directly through his heart. Sheriff Missile’s corpse fell into the bowels of the oscillator.
Enraged by the loss, Joseph fired a powerful shot from his gun and hit Mr. Ghastly NoHead in the side, seriously injuring the NoHead. The officer killed several other robots in the area as Jean and Bladepoint joined in. As Mr. Stupid NoHead arrived, Joseph saw him and ignited charges that he and Sheriff Missile set throughout the oscillator, causing a massive explosion that breached the oscillator and gave Saul and the remaining police pilots an opportunity to destroy it. As NoHead realized he coild not get Ghastly out in time, he quickly escaped the explosion and resolved to find Jean and Bladepoint before they could escape.
Mr. Stupid NoHead followed Jean and Bladepoint outside the oscillator, as they made their way back to the nearby police cruiser. He confronted them, sword drawn, and said that they still had unfinished business that Sheriff Missile could not save them from. Bladepoint tried to attack him with his gun, but NoHead used telekinesis to throw him into a wall and knock him unconscious. Left alone to confront the dark warrior, Jean ignited the sword that she had recovered from Mr. Ghastly NoHead in the oscillator. Despite the odds, Jean immediately engaged him in a sword duel that made for a short but brutal contest. After only delivering two failed thrusts, Jean was no match for NoHead’s power. Mr. Stupid NoHead overwhelmed and disarmed the Fobble, ending the fight with a sword blow across Jean’s back that left the Fobble comatose.
With the duel seemingly over, Mr. Stupid NoHead advanced on his fallen enemies, ready to send them into oblivion. However, Bladepoint recovered, dodging NoHead’s death blow. Bladepoint drew the weapon and engaged NoHead in a brief yet tense duel. Again, NoHead had the upper hand, remaining on the offensive as he pressed his attack against the retreating officer. Their blades became locked, and NoHead told the emerging mutant that it was he who could show him the path to power. Remembering what Sheriff Missile had warned him of, Bladepoint realized he could call upon his powers and prepared to use that to his advantage, breaking the blade-lock. Mr. Stupid NoHead prepared to resume the duel, advancing on his opponent.
Before the two could finish, the ground ruptured so hard that they were both thrown apart, separating them. Upon landing, Mr. Stupid NoHead chose to retreat and Disapparated.
Skirmish on the Caribbeans Edit
They duelled each other simultaneously, until they both scored minor hits on each other. Bladepoint turned invisible and NoHead ran down the hill trying to find his quarry. There, Bladepoint at first thought to kill Mr. Stupid NoHead, but was overcome with pity, so he jumped over him to escape the ensuing explosion of energy. How NoHead escaped is unknown.
Mr. Stupid NoHead fought in the Invasion of Manhattan, but the battle was ultimately lost. After said defeat and the First NoHead Base's destruction, the tide of the war began to turn.
In 1994, Mr. Stupid NoHead realized the decision of war was obvious and told Mr. Crooked NoHead, his father, that he should go and massacre the police. Mr. Crooked NoHead authorized this action. NoHead proceeded to the police station. There, he destroyed everything that Sheriff Bladepoint tried to build, leaving the Old Police Station in ashes. Having slaughtered nearly all resistance, he began his plans to crown himself Emperor of the entire globe.
Shortly after this, the government was compromised and fell to the power of Mr. Stupid NoHead when President Bill Clinton was murdered, the official version being he retired. News of this came to the police due to Aurora Black's Holocard. Mr. Stupid NoHead established a totalitarian police state, with Black under Mind control, serving as a puppet President and Nolan Giles as the head of the Department of Law Enforcement. The Mutamon was reformed to round up Duffle-borns and imprison them in Beta Prison.
He chose not to publicly declare himself President in order to maintain an atmosphere of fear and uncertainty.
Attack on Superhero School Edit
- "Master Hayden is dead. He was killed as he ran away, trying to save himself while you lay down your lives for him. We bring you his body as proof that your hero is gone. The battle is won. You have lost half of your fighters. My NoHeads outnumber you, and your Headmaster is finished. There must be no more war. Anyone who continues to resist, man, woman or child, will be slaughtered, as well every member of their family. Come out of the school now, kneel before him, and you shall be spared. Your parents and children, your brothers and sisters will live and be forgiven, and you will join me in the new world we shall build together."
- ―Mr. Stupid NoHead announcing Hayden’s death to the inhabitants of Superhero School[src]
Mr. Stupid NoHead's plans were carried out when Mrs. Twisted NoHead defeated and killed Hayden. Moments later, Mr. Stupid NoHead Apparated in front of the other NoHeads, and the open ground, wearing Nagatha around his shoulders whilst acknowledging his victorious followers as Sheriff Bladepoint looked on. Deaformas were patrolling the outer trees.
Mr. Stupid NoHead, his voice electronically magnified, announced that Hayden was dead and that he was killed trying to escape. With the students outnumbered and their Headmaster finished, he called for no more war. Mr. Stupid NoHead threatened that anyone who continued to resist would be killed, but that those who came out and knelt before him would be spared. Mr. Stupid NoHead strode in front of the procession, which grew as the survivors of the battle came out onto the front steps to face the NoHeads and see the truth of Hayden’s demise. Suddenly, the survivors began screaming and yelling abuse until Mr. Stupid NoHead forced silence upon them all.
Antonio McSnake charged at Mr. Stupid NoHead, but the latter disarmed him and he submitted, being given the NoHead Sign. Mr. Stupid NoHead answered that the school was doomed and they had no choice but to submit. Dozens, soon hundreds, of individuals knelt before him. Mr. Stupid NoHead announced that Mr. and Mrs. Eradicating NoHead were now the Deputy Heads, along with Miranda Butterfield, the first Professor to bow down to the new Emperor. Mrs. Eradicating NoHead ordered the students and teachers inside, while Mr. Stupid NoHead and his followers Disapparated beyond the gates. His wife also took over as principal of Superhero School.
The inauguration of the NoHead Empire Edit
With no one else to stop him, Mr. Stupid NoHead crowned himself Emperor. As the dictator, NoHead effectively wielded absolute control over the entire world and virtually everyone who lived within it. During his tenure, he increased his army and ruled unopposed for nearly two decades. He ruled through terror symbolized by the Second NoHead Base as well as the Imperial Palace.
The next fifteen years saw the violent suppression of all opposition, including intimidation, arrests, executions, the destruction of cities, even the destruction of entire planets. He would have gone further, and destroyed entire star systems, had his rule remained unchallenged. Seduced by promises of safety, security, justice and peace, or perhaps just intimidated into silence, the government unanimously voted "yes." The NoHead Empire was an established fact.
After occupying Superhero School, Mr. Stupid NoHead declared Sheriff Bladepoint Deplorable No. 1 with a reward on his head, on the basis he was wanted for questioning over the death of Hayden.
Murder of Aurora Black Edit
Eventually, Aurora Black’s state of mind control took an upturn, and her resistance to it became stronger. Upon learning of this, Mr. Stupid NoHead began to fear, as he was unable to risk the no-longer-controlled Aurora exposing their plan. When she approached him on 27 May, 1996, Mr. Stupid NoHead ruthlessly killed Aurora Black in frustration after she interrupted his concentration with an unwanted interjection. It was then that Mr. Stupid NoHead openly declared himself President.
In 1997, while attending Ms. Bitter NoHead’s graduation, Mr. Crooked NoHead was nearly killed by assassins in a hit ordered by Max Tegan and Sanct Security. The attack was preceded by Mr. Stupid NoHead was kidnapped by members of Sanct Security, which Mr. Crooked NoHead had made sure would occur by acknowledging his son as an acquaintance in public with Max Tegan as a witness. Shortly afterwards, Crooked was kidnapped as well. As Crooked focused his efforts to foil the kidnapping attempt and use it to locate Tegan, he was not aware that Preston was preparing a second attack against him. Sage Preston immediately notified Mr. Stupid NoHead. The two arrived at the Dark Lodge as Crooked, gravely injured and barely conscious, was lashing out with the dark side against his attackers. All the others, including the employs at the front of the building, had been killed. Hicks was the first victim of the attack, his head sliced from his neck.
Afterwards, Mr. Stupid NoHead personally executed Max Tegan and many other members of the Gran Protectorate in the embassy. The police were unable to find any culprits behind either incident, even though the Government Investigatory Committee formed a special task force to look into the matter in the wake of Senator Kim’s assassination. Dark Lodge was not reformed.
Eventually, Mr. Stupid NoHead would marry Mrs. Twisted NoHead, a fellow NoHead he had met several years ago by unknown means. Although they would later work together well as NoHeads, the marriage appeared to be nothing more than an obligatory fulfillment of the NoHeads’ mutant marriage traditions. Unlike most of his fellow NoHeads, Mr. Stupid NoHead displayed no affection for his wife whatsoever, never even mentioning her in conversations.
In 2000, a year before Hell Burnbottom was born, Mr. Stupid NoHead was informed that Cherical McSnake hacked into enemy files. Although he did not know it was an accident, it is likely that NoHead would not care if he did know. Hoping to stop McSnake from causing the NoHeads any harm, Mr. Stupid NoHead hired Doctor Ratiguise to hunt down and destroy Cherical, promising to pay him a reward of 20,000 dollars if he brought in Cherical alive. Ratiguise quickly tracked down Cherical and found him on a walk. However, Cherical found Charity Hirz during the subsequent chase. Although she barely knew Cherical, she risked her life to save him. Doctor Ratiguise angrily fired at Hirz, but Charity threw up a magnetic shield and killed Ratiguise by repelling his blasts. Mr. Stupid NoHead would find out about this later.
At some point around this time, Mr. Stupid NoHead apparently learned of Roan's Resistance. In response, he passed a decree threatening any students who refused to disband their organizations, effectively rendering the group illicit.
- "You have forgotten your place, Gladiator. By taking this boy as your apprentice, you have betrayed me. Now you will kill him, or I will destroy you both."
- ―Mr. Stupid NoHead ordering the Gladiator to "kill" Abalan.[src]
In 2004, as Abalan's training was on the verge of completion, the Gladiator dispatched his young apprentice on a final series of tests to determine the level of his strength before they could confront the Emperor. Abalan pursued his objectives with great anticipation at the thought of fulfilling his primary purpose in life, from defeating police fugitives to training in the ruins of the Old Police Station. Due to the secret nature of his existence, the Gladiator commanded Abalan to execute anyone who saw him, with the exception of the holobot WINDOW and Captain Laleh Clipso, so as to not alert Mr. Stupid NoHead of their plans to assassinate him. As such, his targets included Imperials who had the unfortunate accident of crossing his path.
After completing his final mission by killing Rachel Bradley of the former Council in Tsala, Abalan returned to his master's flagship, the Wasp where he believed they would assassinate the Emperor together. Unknown to Abalan, however, Mr. Stupid NoHead's spies had been tracking him since his victory over the exiled Narcus police officer, Casey Tartus, in Columbia. When Abalan arrived on the incomplete Wasp, the Emperor utilized a holobot to project an image of himself to reprimand the Gladiator, just in case the Gladiator decided to go through with his plan. With the element of surprise lost to them, Mr. Stupid NoHead emerged and the Gladiator was forced to "betray" his apprentice after the Emperor threatened to destroy them both unless the Gladiator complied. As Abalan stared at his master in shock, the Emperor angrily commanded the Gladiator to kill the secret apprentice. Though he hesitated for a brief moment, the Gladiator used his powers to assault Abalan before launching him out of the bridge's observation window. Mr. Stupid NoHead, likewise, expressed sadistic amusement at the Gladiator's assault, even laughing to himself in private after the deed was done.
When Abalan awoke on the Endurance six months later, he learned that he had never truly died; the Gladiator staged the apprentice's execution and then nursed him back to full health aboard his secret medical starship. The Gladiator convinced Abalan that it was not too late to take revenge on the Emperor. But since Mr. Stupid NoHead's spies tracked the Gladiator's every move, a distraction was required to divert his attention elsewhere. Thus, Abalan was ordered to reorganize the police. With Mr. Stupid NoHead distracted by a full-scale rebellion, the Gladiator assured Abalan that they would capitalize on their second chance to kill Mr. Stupid NoHead as soon as the police served their purpose.
But Abalan was deceived once more. Mr. Stupid NoHead was fully aware of the apprentice's survival and even ordered the Gladiator to continue the charade by manipulating the young man into believing that the police was part of their assassination plot. In truth, however, the real goal was to gather all of the Empire's enemies to one location where they could be rounded up and summarily executed in one swift stroke. When Abalan completed his task to perfection, the Emperor dispatched the Gladiator and a large Imperial force to capture the police in Japan.
Duel in the Imperial Palace Edit
- The Gladiator: "He is dead."
- Mr. Stupid NoHead: "Then he is now more powerful than ever."
- — The Gladiator and Mr. Stupid NoHead lament Abalan’s death.[src]
Mr. Stupid NoHead ordered the Gladiator to eliminate Abalan once and for all, but much to his surprise, the former apprentice emerged victorious in a duel that left the Gladiator in a severely injured state. Enthralled by Abalan's power, the Emperor joyfully encouraged Abalan to slay the Dark mutant, hoping that the young man's hatred for his traitorous Master was strong enough to make the killing blow. He promised Abalan that the reward would be great; the Gladiator's death would allow the young man to finally become a true apprentice at the Emperor's side.
But when the officer Ronald Koda, who had also been taken prisoner along with the officers, sensed Mr. Stupid NoHead's intentions, he telekinetically snatched the Emperor's sword. He then charged at NoHead with the goal of striking the Dark Lord down with his own weapon. In a rage, NoHead unleashed a barrage of lightning on the police officer. Caught off-guard for a few moments, Abalan could only stand and watch as Koda was tortured by NoHead's deadly lightning, unresponsive to Sheriff Bladepoint desperately pleading that he help him. Abalan was torn between aiding his police mentor and taking his revenge on the Gladiator. In the end, he drove away the dark thoughts of vengeance and chose the Light path by coming to the defense of his allies by standing against the Emperor.
Through the Light, Abalan hurled bits of broken transparent steel and debris at the Emperor, who was forced to break off his attack on Koda to defend himself. As they engaged in a vicious telekinetic battle, Abalan came to the conclusion that Mr. Stupid NoHead was behind the Gladiator's every move ever since his discovery on Mars. NoHead confirmed this. As their battle progressed, Abalan gained the upper hand by using the Light side to pummel the Emperor around the throne room before apparently subduing him. Cackling, NoHead abruptly dropped to his knees and goaded Abalan into striking a death blow. With Koda's urging, however, Abalan resisted the seduction back to the NoHead way and spared the Emperor's life.
Mr. Stupid NoHead's failure to secure Abalan as his new apprentice caused him to lose all control of his anger. As Abalan turned to leave, NoHead rose to his feet in an uncontrollable rage and unleashed his lightning on Koda once again, declaring that he would never allow the police to have someone as powerful as Abalan. But the reformed officer used his sword to block the Emperor's attack to provide Koda and the police officers with enough time to escape. Abalan and his allies made their way to the Shadow Laser piloted by Clipso. In the end, all of the escapees exiled themselves.
Mr. Stupid NoHead bitterly admitted that Abalan's actions would only inspire the police to fight a full-scale war against the NoHeads. But the fact that he still had to make due with the Gladiator's desertion was also frustrating to NoHead. Overall, the death of Abalan and the survival of the police brought NoHead to a wise conclusion; all of the police had to be exterminated or the two NoHeads would suffer the bitter irony of being destroyed by the very rebellion that they created. However, the loss of Abalan did not stop him from seeking out other candidates.
Abalan's untimely death, however, forced the Gladiator to take a desperate course of action. He preserved his fallen apprentice's corpse in Florida where he used it as a template in the hopes of creating a more powerful and obedient version of Abalan. The cloning project was initially flawed, resulting in various genetic failures in the early trials of the experiment, including a renegade clone who escaped from the southeastern border. Despite the constant rate of failures and disappointments, the project ultimately produced a single perfect clone who emerged as the Gladiator's new apprentice.
Despite the intensity in their marriage, Mr. Stupid NoHead and Mrs. Twisted NoHead did, notably enough, give birth to three incredibly talented children - Hell Burnbottom, Brute Gunray, and Mean King. NoHead trained all three of them, though he specifically fancied Burnbottom. As such, NoHead took him up and began to train him as his heir. Although Burnbottom could endure extreme amounts of pain, nothing could have prepared young Burnbottom for the brutality of NoHead’s training. Despite NoHead’s harshness, Hell Burnbottom held the utmost respect for the man, and was fanatically loyal.

Battle of Superhero University Edit
- "I know that you are preparing to fight. Your efforts are futile. You cannot fight me. I do not want to kill you. I have great respect for the teachers of Superhero University. I do not want to spill mutant blood. Give me Sheriff Bladepoint, and none shall be harmed. Give me the Sheriff, and I shall leave the college untouched. Give me the Sheriff, and you will be rewarded. You have until midnight. If he is not here with me, I will have the Imperial army destroy any man, woman, and child in sight."
- ―Mr. Stupid NoHead[src]
Upon learning that Sheriff Bladepoint was at Superhero University and trying to find his three children, Mr. Stupid NoHead returned there. By the time he got there, the residents had already ousted the NoHeads teaching there and had begun preparing a defense against him. He rounded up his entire army of NoHeads, robot soldiers, bodyguards, werewolves, giants, Nundus, and Acromantulas, and commanded his army to fight the police officers, professors, and students who were in the castle: the Battle of Superhero University ensued.
During the battle, Mr. Stupid NoHead tried to strike down everyone within his reach and his army forced its way through several hordes of students wielding their fledging powers against the robots. In the Great Hall, his army was gradually cut down as NoHead fought Joseph, Miranda Butterfield and Alice all at once. At that time, Bladepoint revealed himself, and NoHead blasted his enemies away with a powerful telekinetic repulse.
Whirling around, NoHead immediately threw Bladepoint into a stone pillar and attempted to kick him. Bladepoint got up and telekinetically hurled him away, but NoHead enhanced his powers to keep a grip on the floor before firing a Stun beam directly at Bladepoint's arm. He then kicked Bladepoint off the ledge, but Bladepoint grabbed him by the hem of his robe, pulling him off with him.
As the two mutants screamed, Mr. Stupid NoHead Apparated them away from the ravine. The two arrived on the ground right outside the police station; the impact forced their swords out of their hands.
Injured, but still energized, they desperately reached for them. Once attained, Mr. Stupid NoHead and Sheriff Bladepoint respectively clashed; neither were damaged. NoHead ramped up his attack, assailing Bladepoint until he was dealing in six blows per second. Unable to effectively counter, Bladepoint was quickly disarmed. However, he blasted NoHead off of the ravine and down into the mist. As Bladepoint was cheered on, NoHead Transfigured himself into Mr. Horrid NoHead and proceeded to attack anew. However, none of the others recognized him, and he was finally forced to leave the battle, only to be halted by Roxanne, whose flirtatious dancing irritated him, distracting him long enough for Bladepoint to incapacitate him. As the police hauled off NoHead, his wife called off the robots from the police and students as there was no need to keep fighting.
Escape from Beta Prison Edit
Beta Prison could never hold Mr. Stupid NoHead. Two months after the liberation of Superhero School, Mr. Stupid NoHead became the first known person ever to escape from the mutant prison. To do this, he simply blasted a way out the cell while the guards were bringing in his food. He swam across the sea to find Sheriff Bladepoint. As news of Mr. Stupid NoHead escaping was released, the community went on high alert. NoHead was facing the Deaforma's Lash as punishment should he be recaptured.
He found Hell Burnbottom when the latter was very young — so young that he would remember few memories prior to this. Immediately, Mr. Stupid NoHead took him to the police station, both of them disguised as tourists. NoHead’s command of the dark side was sufficient to keep both himself and Burnbottom from being spotted by the police, so long as they did not actually enter the station. As the building was not open to tourists, there was very little risk of discovery. For the better part of a day, they stood there, and NoHead pointed out to Burnbottom the various faces of individual police as they entered and left the station, whispering into his apprentice’s ear of the police’s ultimate destruction. Burnbottom would long remember the thrill of seeing his foes, standing in their presence, hearing about their downfall, as they walked past, not one of them aware of the fate that ultimately awaited them.
Death of Mrs. Twisted NoHeadEdit
With Mr. Stupid NoHead’s plans to retake the Whitehouse secured, there remained just one unfinished piece of business for NoHead to resolve. Ever since her marriage, Mrs. Twisted NoHead had intended to act as a de-facto Queen once her husband became the Emperor, ensuring NoHead only passed laws that she approved of. In truth, NoHead had been subtly manipulating his wife for years, fooling her into thinking the ideas for the implementation of the Grand Plan were her own while NoHead laid the groundwork for his ascension to Emperor and NoHead Grandmaster. NoHead had never intended to share power with anyone, and he knew that installing an Empress alongside him would be politically damaging to him. With Twisted’s usefulness now exhausted, NoHead moved to eliminate her.
The night before the election, Mrs. Twisted NoHead made her first public appearance in years, attending the premiere of an experimental performance at the Globes Opera House with Mr. Stupid NoHead. After the performance, the couple retired to a penthouse outside the NoHead base to celebrate NoHead’s upcoming success and their apparent love for each other, notwithstanding they had not gone on a honeymoon together. There, NoHead plied Twisted with wine while rehearsing the acceptance speech he would soon deliver. Twisted soon fell into an alcohol-induced sleep, and NoHead saw his chance. With his wife’s guard completely down, NoHead blasted Twisted’s headpiece apart with lightning. This woke Twisted but, being inebriated and half-asleep, the woman could do nothing to stop her husband. NoHead took the opportunity to mock Twisted, informing her as to just how thoroughly he had manipulated her, all the while sending additional blasts of lightning, causing immense pain to his wife as she slowly suffocated. In addition, NoHead revealed he had never loved her at all, and told her the true origins of their marriage. He then drew his sword and brought it down on her. After his wife finally succumbed to death, NoHead felt a monumental shift in the dark side, which he interpreted as the dark side anointing him as the tool it would use to take over the universe. However, he then felt another shift, and feared for a few moments that this second shift was a forewarning that Mrs. Twisted NoHead had overcome her death in some fashion and was about to take her revenge. However, Mr. Stupid NoHead quickly reasoned that this was not the case, though he would not discover the reason behind this second shift for some time.
Discovery of Annabeth Black Edit
The following month, Mr. Stupid NoHead discovered Annabeth Black, realizing her power even before they were in the same room. Black agreed to leave her parents and join him, despite only being fifteen years of age. Her parents insisted that she could not join the dark side, but NoHead killed them to silence the matter and proceeded to Disapparate away with her. They rematerialized in the NoHead Base. Here, NoHead showed her around and showed her a selection of combat uniforms for NoHeads. Annabeth ultimately chose a leather crop-top and jeans, which would give her free movement on the battlefield. 
Two days later, Black reported her success to Mr. Stupid NoHead, which had come at the cost of Abalan's life. Mr. Stupid NoHead took no joy in the death of his former candidate. He had envisioned a far different future for the boy. Abalan was meant to root out the police so that they could all be revealed and destroyed, yet NoHead bitterly admitted that Annabeth may carry more hope than he had thought.
Annabeth would often skip out on training sessions, something NoHead did not seem initially concerned about (though ironically, it is highly likely that Black kept him in the dark).
NoHead Cataclysm (2013)Edit
Missing years (2014-18)Edit
After the purge, Mr. Stupid NoHead tried desperately to rebuild the NoHeads and their army, and clean up the bloodstained NoHead base. He had realized that he would end up doing more for the NoHeads than anyone else. He also had what was left of the robots begin work on the Wasp, which was a battle station.
Recruiting Rotta HecksEdit
In the mix, he encountered a girl named Rotta Hecks, who was extremely powerful, but extremely fearful of her powers. He introduced himself, though Rotta was horrified that he was there. A brief skirmish ensued until NoHead made it clear that he had no intention of harming her, and had invited her to join the NoHeads. The two were visibly drawn to each other at this point, and NoHead was able to soothe her fears before offering her to join the NoHeads and find her true place. Rotta was immediately infatuated with him.
Impressed by her amazing power, NoHead manipulated Rotta into killing her own mother, sealing her tie to the dark side, as an ancient dark side covenant required the latter to kill a dark side enemy that was close to them. With the passing of her beloved parents, Rotta had no choice but to join the NoHeads. Generally, NoHead treated her more decently than his sons. Rotta secretly carried out several assignments for NoHead and trained with him for a full year. At age seventeen, Mr. Stupid NoHead made her his sidekick, something Rotta had been looking forward to.
Encounter with SeanEdit
The following week, in August, Mr. Stupid NoHead met Sean after Brute Gunray brought the mutant to the former. Sean had been conducting a year-long search for the NoHeads. In the NoHead Base, NoHead interrogated him, though Sean insisted that he only wanted to join the NoHeads. Finally, NoHead told him he could join if he could pass a test he would personally set before him. He took him to NR-327, who attacked Sean with low-energy bullets. Finally, he threw one back via telekinesis, before diving in and ripping apart the robot in a rage. Satisfied, NoHead told him he had passed, and anointed him as a NoHead apprentice. Before they began the training, Mr. Stupid NoHead took Sean to the latter's home. There, he burst in and killed his parents with two fluid sword strikes. Outraged, Sean attempted to kill NoHead, but the far superior mutant easily flounced off his electric assault. was outraged, and angrily turned his lightning upon NoHead. NoHead, however, deflected the attack and told him if his parents meant that much to him, he was not truly NoHead material. Sean apologized and they returned to the NoHead Base, though Sean was still depressed over the loss of his family.
The final test Edit
One day, in 2014, after a torturous session with a computer console on a number of questions and some exercises, Burnbottom had wandered over to the ring, where NR-1119, code-name Fox, wielded a wooden staff and instructed him to dodge his blows in yet another exercise. The first two strikes hit Burnbottom, though he managed to evade the next two; then, Fox span and threw the staff at Burnbottom, hitting him in the face. Before Fox could retrieve the staff, an enraged Burnbottom unconsciously summoned the weapon. Surprised, Fox reported this discovery to Mr. Stupid NoHead. NoHead asked Burnbottom how he felt during the exercise, and Burnbottom said he had felt angry. NoHead grinned with satisfaction and ordered Fox to prepare his cruiser for liftoff.
Eventually, the time came for Hell Burnbottom’s final test. Mr. Stupid NoHead sent him out to a remote and isolated area of Alaska, where he was hunted by robot soldiers for a month. At the end of the month, Burnbottom found NoHead waiting at the mouth of a cave. Burnbottom was exhausted, and had not eaten for days. Regardless, NoHead challenged Burnbottom to a duel, in which Burnbottom was easily defeated. NoHead stood over the broken man, and told him that he had been preparing another apprentice, should Burnbottom fail as he had. Enraged, Hell Burnbottom flew at NoHead with murderous intent. Mr. Stupid NoHead was caught off guard, but was able to disarm Burnbottom. Even without a weapon, Burnbottom continued to attack, even going so far as to bite NoHead’s hand before being ultimately defeated. Pleased, NoHead announced that Burnbottom’s training was complete, and that he was now a NoHead.
Recruitment of Gales, Qamar, and the sevlowsEdit
When Mr. Stupid NoHead traveled to Yellowstone National Park in 2016, he rounded up many wolves there in yet another step to compensate for the Attack on the NoHead Base. Returned to base via several cruisers, one of which NoHead himself piloted, they were stored in an underground chamber in his emergency base, where they were fed two police victims, amid others.
A few years later, Rotta married Greg Hecks, though the man she loved ultimately was Mr. Stupid NoHead himself. Greg and Rotta decided to have their own son in good time.
When Annabeth Black learned of a fight between Qamar's mother and a group of slavers, Mr. Stupid NoHead personally deployed a large military force to Bridgeton under his command. During the battle, NoHead defeated Ken in a brief duel and discovered the latter's son. Seeing his father's death, Qamar demonstrated his reflexive telekinesis by pulling NoHead's sword out of his hand. Impressed by Qamar's potential in the dark side, NoHead abducted the younger Qamar shortly after he killed the boy's father and a squad of robots in order to keep Qamar's existence a secret. He endeavored to teach the ways of the dark side to his new disciple, whom he first controlled through fear before training Qamar to harness his anger and other base emotions.
Several months later, Mr. Stupid NoHead endeavored to teach the ways of the darkness to Bartholomew Gales, who willingly joined him. Initially, NoHead controlled him through fear before training Bartholomew to harness his anger and other base emotions. Despite his loyalty, Barty felt himself being drawn to the light. When signs of this connection became increasingly obvious, NoHead had Annabeth attempt to teach Bartholomew the art of mind resistance, rather than himself, as he believed such a thing was below him.
- "I saw him, Baby Intelligence, rising from the darkness. Save for his pale, gnarled hands, his entire visage was covered in a black cloak. The Qi'sheng has come! He whispered, 'Wizard...wizard...wizard...I am ready...' [...] I ran, I ran up the many flights of stairs, but the Dark mutant would not let me escape with his secret."
- ―Merlin's second apprentice[src]
Saurya showed no fear of Mr. Stupid NoHead, summoning her friend Aegii when NoHead demanded for the Klonham. Seeing Aegii has the crystal, and that she and Saurya were teaming up against him, NoHead killed Saurya with fire, though he failed to remove the crystal from Aegii's grasp (even after knocking the girl unconscious). Taking Aegii prisoner, and leaving the nursery to burn, Mr. Stupid NoHead returned to the Fifth NoHead Base.
In 2019, shortly before unleashing the Robotic Monster, Mr. Stupid NoHead encountered the second apprentice of Merlin while he was standing inside a chamber. Inclining his head, he told the wizard he was ready to fight, but the latter ran off. Unwilling to allow the wizard to escape with his secret, Mr. Stupid NoHead sent several skyfighters after the old man, ultimately failing to claim his life.
Meeting Baby Intelligence (July 2019)Edit
- Peter Hecks: "You're a NoHead, aren't you?"
- Mr. Stupid NoHead: "I am the leader of them all...Mr. Stupid NoHead! I knew you were a danger to me from the start, ever since Rotta became pregnant. I will not tolerate you much longer..."
- — Baby Intelligence to Mr. Stupid NoHead[src]
Four years later he found that his newest recruit, Rotta Hecks, was pregnant. NoHead was unaware if the baby would follow Rotta’s path, and kept a close watch until his birth. A month later he unleashed a robot on the city to lure the baby to him. The plan worked, and he found the baby, Peter, on the case. There, the NoHead master and infant legend dueled in a battle that destroyed a good portion of the junkyard.
The two combatants demonstrated amazing strength and skill, as well as fencing prowess. The battle ended in a draw after NoHead’s lightning was returned to him in a blast so powerful that it pushed the two mutants apart. Peter slammed into a lightning rod on the adjoining building, but NoHead fell several stories. NoHead realized that he could not defeat Peter, and decided that re-engaging him would only result in failure. A moment later, Peter appeared and disarmed him quickly. Outmatched, NoHead promised to flee the city in exchange for his life.
Second NoHead War Edit
With the public believing Mr. Stupid NoHead had finally given up the cause, he was able to mobilize his armies for warfare. The Deaformas sided with the Dark Lord, who promised them scope for their powers. He became obsessed with finding Peter Hecks, who was now renamed Baby Intelligence, as he felt the baby's very existence threatened his power.
Battle of the Wasp Edit
- "You have been used. The end of the world, far would it be were you to die a martyr. The Sheriff has calculated the value of your life and labeled it as worthless!"
- ―Mr. Stupid NoHead to Baby Intelligence[src]
Soon after, Mr. Stupid NoHead captured the Mayor and held her captive aboard his base, the Wasp. The news of her capture shocked the town, and many believed that they were on the verge of collapse. Arriving on the Wasp, NoHead took charge of the prisoner, leaving Rotta to command the sky battle outside.
Baby Intelligence and Sebiscuits Cardarphen mounted a rescue mission to save the Mayor. They boarded the NoHead base and began to fight their way through its defenses. NoHead observed the pair, and arrived at the holding cell flanked by two robot soldiers. At this point, the S.M.S.B. was already about to free the Mayor. He made a flipping leap from the balcony to the main floor, his sword in hand, and ordered the babies to surrender. Intelligence stated that he no longer trusted NoHead, and he would not escape this time.
The babies charged at NoHead together, with the villain retreating, on the defensive. During a standoff, Sebiscuits told NoHead he was a superhero. NoHead, confident that his plan was about to unfold, remarked that he was wrong, certain that the babies would lose. Although both had improved, they opened with basic sword techniques. When both babies suddenly changed their saber styles mid-battle, and began to wear down the NoHead’s defenses, NoHead, who had initially been toying with them, was caught off guard, but was able to readjust his tactics for a more serious confrontation.
Eventually, NoHead slammed Baby Intelligence to the floor, only to have Sebiscuits force him up the stairs. The droids that had accompanied NoHead attacked Intelligence, who easily destroyed them both. As Intelligence rejoined the duel, NoHead was able to gain the advantage when he strangled Intelligence and kicked Sebiscuits into a wall at the same time. The villain then telekinetically hurled Intelligence across the room into the railing on the leftmost side of the balcony. Getting to his feet, Sebiscuits carried on the fight alone.
As their one-on-one duel reached the main floor, NoHead taunted Sebiscuits. This proved to be a mistake, however — Sebiscuits was indeed afraid, afraid of losing Baby Inteligence. The taunt enraged Cardarphen, and he channeled his hatred of NoHead into his swordplay. Refusing to be intimidated by the NoHead’s victory over Baby Intelligence, Sebiscuits came at NoHead in a frenzied demonstration of Ataru, hammering NoHead’s defenses. He quickly gained the advantage. With a swift maneuver, he proceeded to disarm the antagonist, doubly rendering NoHead at the baby’s mercy.
The Mayor commended Sebiscuits’ victory and encouraged him to deliver the deathblow. Despite hesitating for a moment, Sebiscuits would have run him through had he not blasted away. He left the base to the safety of a battleship.
Following this, Mr. Stupid NoHead breached the police cruiser and tortured an officer into telling him what happened to Baby Intelligence. As more police gathered, the captured officer revealed that the Mayor had escaped and the destruction of the Wasp. This caused NoHead to panic, and when the police added that Rotta had been unmasked by Baby Intelligence, he was enraged. He realized at that moment that Sebiscuits had joined Baby Intelligence. In a rage, he murdered the victim as well as the gathered police. NoHead then paced the room with Hell Burnbottom and planned his next move.
Shortly after this, Mr. Stupid NoHead contacted Rotta informing her that a new base needs to be built in Palmyra, and informed her that the war’s conclusion drew closer. When Rotta protested that the loss of the Wasp would mean the end of the NoHeads, NoHead informed her that it was of little concern, and he would soon cement a new apprentice who would be “the greatest NoHead of all.”
Turning Sebiscuits Cardarphen Edit
Mr. Stupid NoHead spent much time attempting to turn Sebiscuits Cardarphen, Baby Intelligence's first comrade, to the dark side. Finally, Sebiscuits chose him over Paige, and his journey was complete.At the same time, Mr. Stupid NoHead was sowing similar seeds of doubt into the mind of Sebiscuits, Baby Intelligence's first comrade. The baby was afraid there was no meaning in his life. NoHead promised the infant to open his mind to the NoHead knowledge of sustaining or creating life, which — as he claimed — was the only way to find his purpose and avenge those whom he hated.
When Baby Intelligence dispatched Sebiscuits again, NoHead and Rotta Hecks sensed his presence and convened at their base. Just then, Sebiscuits came visiting. NoHead spoke with him for an hour, then sent him away. The former immediately used a magical incantation to cast a dark illusion to ensnare Baby Intelligence. The ploy worked and Baby Intelligence raced to the NoHead Base with Paige. Inside, they pursued the NoHeads with Paige and a squad of robots. As the battle unfolded, Baby Intelligence refused to sacrifice Paige to pursue NoHead, and instead demonstrated he was willing to sacrifice himself to save the young woman. NoHead's illusion faltered: the S.M.S.B. leader won.
Eventually, the inevitable confrontation emerged, and NoHead revealed, at the Globes Opera House, that he intended to train Sebiscuits as an apprentice. Sebiscuits nearly killed NoHead on the spot. However, after Mr. Stupid NoHead implied that such an action would result in Sebiscuits' fall to the Dark Side and the loss of any chance of happiness, Sebiscuits instead returned to the MBH and notified Baby Intelligence.
Confrontation in the Grandmaster's officeEdit
Paige told Sebiscuits to remain in the meditation chamber to try and calm his raging emotions, while she, along with officers Jason Williams, Caleb Hawkins, and Katy Smith, went to execute the NoHead Grandmaster. NoHead greeted the fighters as the latters boldly drew their swords, and Paige declared that NoHead was to die. NoHead immediately seized a sword of his own design hidden in his sleeve. Shrieking a bestial NoHead war cry, Mr. Stupid NoHead lunged forward and killed officers Hawkins and Williams before they could defend themselves. Smith held against NoHead for a few seconds before she was slain by the NoHead's blade. Left alone with Paige, the Dark Lord fought her in a ferocious one-on-one sword duel.
After several minutes of intense dueling, NoHead was overpowered and disarmed by Paige, who then held him at blade point. Sebiscuits then arrived and NoHead 'pleaded' with him, convincing the baby that Paige was their common foe.
When Paige declared that the threat of the NoHeads would never return and that NoHead had lost, the Dark Lord angrily fired torments of lightning at the teenager. However, this proved futile, as Paige used her sword to deflect the attack. She then proceeded to smash him into a Death Booth he himself had made. As the booth tortured him, his appearance altered. His face began to sag and turn pale, his eyes, fingernails and teeth turned yellow as his voice grew ragged and deep. He pleaded with Sebiscuits, confirming that his grotesque visage was the result of Paige's attack, and that he was too weak to hold off the attacks any longer. Paige proclaimed that she would put an end to NoHead, but Sebiscuits argued that he must stand trial. Paige deemed NoHead too dangerous to be left alive, but Sebiscuits had decided that only NoHead could help him. He had to choose between the S.M.S.B. members that appeared to abuse their power and the seemingly helpless and weak man that had supported him as long as they knew each other. As Paige raised her sword to deliver the killing blow, the baby chose NoHead, severing Nelson's sword arm. Mr. Stupid NoHead then sprang back to life; with a horrible screeching sound erupting from his throat, he assaulted Paige with a devastating blast of lightning and hurled the young woman from the building to her presumed death far below.
A new apprenticeEdit
- "You indeed have importance. This is it. Become my ally. Learn to harness the Darkness."
- ―Mr. Stupid NoHead[src]
The fall of the Police Station Edit
- "First, I want you to go to the police station. We will ambush them! You know what to do next."
- ―Mr. Stupid NoHead[src]
In cutting down the most vulnerable members of the army to whom he had once sworn allegiance, Cardarphen would tie himself firmly to the NoHead cause. The slight chance that he could try to return to his old life would become nonexistent. Sebiscuits performed splendidly; through the night Sebiscuits led his troops through the corridors in an orgy of carnage. Almost unopposed, Sebiscuits’ blade and the robots butchered the police. When Sebiscuits and the robots completed their errand, the police station was but a smoking ruin.
Operation: Purge Edit
- "Human Replica 113… it is time. Wipe out the police!"
- ―Mr. Stupid NoHead begins the second purge[src]
Still in his laboratory, Mr. Stupid NoHead reached out to key a special frequency via hologram. He contacted the various Replicas to issue a single command: Wipe out the police. With each repetition of the order, his satisfaction grew. He could sense what was happening — not in detail, but he felt the dark side growing stronger with each death.
On two hundred fronts, police suddenly found themselves facing the guns of who they thought were children. The Replicas performed spectacularly; an official estimate indicated that out of nearly 900 police, fewer than fifty survived the assault — 95 percent of the organization had been eliminated at a stroke.
So enthused was NoHead by this long-anticipated victory that after issuing the order, he went to the police station himself, to see the fruit of his labors in person. Indeed, he had no choice but to go, so long had he worked and waited for this moment. In the local library, he found Sebiscuits finishing off a small group of police and the librarian, Isabella Koon. Cardarphen knelt in obedience, and NoHead praised him, telling him he had done well and his power would soon be unequaled. He then told him to go to the MBH as planned. They separated again, leaving Cardarphen to see to his second task. For there were still a few remaining loose ends: the S.M.S.B. itself.
- Mr. Stupid NoHead: "You would kill me, when we have not even met?"
- Greg Hecks: "Why wouldn't I kill you? I know about the NoHeads [...] I'm not giving anything to you!"
- Mr. Stupid NoHead: "I see your thoughts. So, you are but a toymaker? No one special?"
- — Mr. Stupid NoHead encounters Greg[src]
Mr. Stupid NoHead had promised to intervene in the unlikely event that Baby Intelligence gained the upper hand. Finally, he left the police station and flew to the state capitol. After entering the building, NoHead found everyone inside had been murdered, to his delight. Crossing the halls in search of Sebiscuits, NoHead located Greg Hecks, who had survived the assault. Terrified, Greg drew his gun and attempted to shoot NoHead, but NoHead used his sword to deflect the shots and freeze Greg with a telekinetic technique. He then threw Greg to the ground and interrogated him. Greg baffled NoHead by being completely unafraid of him, saying that he welcomed death. NoHead probed his mind and quickly sensed Greg was not a NoHead at all. Using his sword, NoHead murdered Greg in a rage without gaining anything. However, he had deduced that he should follow the path to find the two duelists, and that Rotta had deceived Greg into thinking she was harmless. After retracing the steps down to the kitchen, NoHead Apparated outside. He then boarded his personal fighter and flew to the roof, where he saw Baby Intelligence had disarmed Sebiscuits and was about to kill him. NoHead quickly fired on Intelligence, knocking him aside, before ordering a shocked Cardarphen into the fighter. The two NoHeads took off for the NoHead base.
Attack on the Kellerman House (6 December, 2019)Edit
- Mr. Stupid NoHead: "You stand upon the choice of fate. Bridgett, your daughter is a threat to me!"
- Bridgett Kellerman: "I swear, she's just a baby..."
- Mr. Stupid NoHead: "She has a connection to Baby Intelligence!"
- Bridgett Kellerman: "I swear... she's harmless..."
- Mr. Stupid NoHead: "I believe you!"
- — Mr. Stupid NoHead gives Bridgett a chance to stand back[src]
At some point during the war, when Mr. Stupid NoHead was at the height of his dominion, a prophecy was given by the prophet which predicted the fall of the Dark Lord. This prophecy was given in a hotel during an interview.
This prophecy was overheard by the NoHead and informant Mykew Hadeline. However, Hadeline only heard half of the prophecy and was then thrown out by the hotel manager, who had caught her eavesdropping at the door. She relayed to Mr. Stupid NoHead what she had heard, not realizing that she had missed an important part of the message. In any case, NoHead received only the first part of the prophecy. Feeling threatened, he sprang into action to prevent the fulfillment of the prophecy.
There were, at the time, two babies to whom the prophecy could have referred — Peter Hecks, the son of Rotta and Greg Hecks; and Lindsay Kellerman, the daughter of Bridgett and Zach Kellerman. Both families had sought to thwart NoHead three times, and both families supported the police fully. Both children in question were born in 2019 and were extremely young mutants. Having already taken on Peter several times, NoHead chose to target Lindsay instead of Peter.
After a long search, Mr. Stupid NoHead discovered the identity of the Kellerman’s Secret keeper, Hadeline, and was told of their location. With the Kellerman’s Taboo broken, NoHead simply walked into their home one night and proceeded to interrogate and murder Zach and Bridgett. However, when he turned to Lindsay, she disappeared and his lightning rebounded off her invisible form. This happened because Bridgett’s death prompted Lindsay to fight back. Defeated, NoHead left in a rage.
Battle of the Fourth NoHead Base and first death (21 December, 2019) Edit
Very soon after, the S.M.S.B. arrived at the NoHead base. Notified of their presence, NoHead dispatched a legion of robotic fighters to deal with them, confident it would suffice. As he looked on, Baby Intelligence led the other S.M.S.B. members in a fierce sky battle near his base. They immediately engaged large numbers of NoHead fighters. Intelligence ordered his trainees to disengage, and destroyed large numbers of the enemy fighters with his proton torpedoes.
Pursued by yet more enemy fighters, he ordered his apprentices to fire all their missiles to their left. While confused, they did as they were told. Baby Intelligence flew past the ship as the missiles started arriving; the missiles hit the swarm of fighters pursuing him, destroying a large number of them. Trailed by missiles, Intelligence flew toward the fence guarding the base. The missiles collided with the fence and destroyed it. At this point, NoHead chose to deal with them personally. Meanwhile, sustained gunfire from the S.M.S.B. ships destroyed a turbolaser cannon.
Only a few NoHead fighters remained, but a mysterious ship appeared engaged the S.M.S.B. forces. Baby Intelligence recognized the fighter to be Mr. Stupid NoHead and personally engaged the fighter, pursuing it into the NoHead base and through its halls. When NoHead disappeared, the baby made no attempt to follow.
The sky battle over, NoHead returned to his private quarters and drew the Verasect, a family heirloom and his last resort for killing Baby Intelligence. He then returned to a high balcony overlooking the lobby. Hell Burnbottom then proceeded to torture the S.M.S.B. members until Baby Intelligence arrived. NoHead, who had been anticipating the arrival of the S.M.S.B., revealed that 1,000 Rockets awaited the S.M.S.B. task force, as well as numerous Bratpros. Nelson responded by revealing the imminent intervention of the Rear Guard. The new Rocket army of the NoHeads overwhelmed the reinforcements, and Nelson was forced to retreat while NoHead observed from the balcony.
Mr. Stupid NoHead did not join the battle personally, though this gave him time to realize that Rotta was responsible for the casualties they had suffered from Baby Intelligence. This he believed because she had a chance to raise him to their cause. He told Rotta this. NoHead then attacked Rotta with lightning; Rotta barely blocked the beam with her own, and they locked together and clashed. As both beams collided and connected, Hell Burnbottom backed away to a wall behind Rotta. NoHead realized the connection between the two beams were moving much closer to his position, so he released beams from between the bolts that killed Rotta and slammed her corpse off the balcony.
With that, Baby Intelligence’s rage exploded. He climbed to the top of the balcony for a fight, in which Mr. Stupid NoHead had a far greater advantage. After subjecting Baby Intelligence to two lightning strikes and a violent energy wave, he prepared to finish off his enemy once and for all. However, Intelligence retaliated and drew his sword. The Grandmaster of the S.M.S.B. tapped into the Darkness, using his hate and anger to attack Mr. Stupid NoHead with fury. Finally, the Dark Lord fell to the ground while Baby Intelligence drove his sword aside. As Baby Intelligence held his apparently defenseless enemy at bladepoint, NoHead fought back with the Verasect, knocking his opponent back to the balcony. He then pushed him off and followed. Intelligence proceeded to snatch the Verasect and attack its owner. Mr. Stupid NoHead countered Baby Intelligence with lightning, which he attempted several times to direct (still locked in battle with Baby Intelligence) in all directions, with lightning tendrils popping off from the main beam.
Mr. Stupid NoHead opted to break the connection and with his hand, quickly breathed fire and conjured a huge, fiery cord. The fire realized the presence of Baby Intelligence, rearing and striking down in an attempt to devour him. Baby Intelligence backed up and then gathered the flames for himself whirling them into a fiery ring like mass, and sent them hurtling towards NoHead. Mr. Stupid NoHead took the hit and was blown away in a mass of sparks.
Somehow, Mr. Stupid NoHead learned that when the wizard Merlin died, his second apprentice had cheated death and obtained immortality. Believing he could be of great help to the NoHeads, he took several measures to seek him out. In spite of Annabeth Black's recent public failure on Planet 10, Mr. Stupid NoHead dispatched her and NoHead Recruit Kenzie Walters to locate both the wizard and Baby Intelligence.
Eventually, Walters sent a beacon that revealed the wizard was near her and Black's holdout in Sydney, Australia. Realizing the wizard was still in Sydney, Mr. Stupid NoHead sent Walters to summon Black and Hell Burnbottom. When they arrived, he told them of the wizard's whereabouts and formally issued a decree warning Fobbles against harboring Baby Intelligence. When Burnbottom left the room, Black told him about Lucy McCallin's attempts to sway the public to Baby Intelligence, eventually leading to the writer's capture.
Through the Varlarien, Mr. Stupid NoHead realized that Baby Intelligence was hunting for the three scrolls that would allow him to find the Chosen One. He briefly communicated with his enemy, warning him that "his secret has a new name".
Battle of the Fifth NoHead Base Edit
- "Now you die, as all police must."
- ―Mr. Stupid NoHead[src]
While the S.M.S.B. members were away, NoHead activated the machine to destroy China; however, it couldn’t send a signal that far. Infuriated, he leaped forward, only to hit his head on the door of the room. He went to sleep, but soon awoke to find the S.M.S.B. had returned and blown up his machine. He was unconcerned, as he would simply kill the S.M.S.B. members on the spot and rebuild the machine to send a further signal.
As dozens of Fobbles arrived, Mr. Stupid NoHead faced Baby Intelligence in the chamber. Baby Intelligence called to the crowd that he didn't want anyone else to help, that it had to just be him and Mr. Stupid NoHead, though NoHead hissed that Baby Intelligence truly wanted someone to use a shield, to sacrifice themselves for him. Baby Intelligence responded that neither of them could live amongst each other, and that one of them was going to leave for good. Mr. Stupid NoHead jeered at the proposal that Baby Intelligence would survive, the baby who survived by accident and because Sheriff Bladepoint was "using him to dispose of [NoHead's] enemies".
Baby Intelligence tried to explain that he possessed mutantry that Mr. Stupid NoHead didn't have, and a weapon more powerful than Mr. Stupid NoHead's, in addition warning Mr. Stupid NoHead that his only choice was to think about what pain he had inflicted on several worlds. Rebuking both explanations, Mr. Stupid NoHead began naming his accomplishments, but Baby Intelligence said he had been backfired and this was in the past. NoHead said Baby Intelligence's demise would allow him to rearrange this, but he still did not strike, and his eyes did not waver from Baby Intelligence.
Baby Intelligence responded that NoHead did not learn from his mistakes, even if he could acknowledge them. Mr. Stupid NoHead had followed every word with rapt attention, but now let out a cackle of mad laughter as he said that none of this mattered. It didn't matter whether his machine was gone, or what petty obstacles they had tired to put in his path. Mr. Stupid NoHead said that he crushed them, that it all made sense, in ways that Baby Intelligence was too young to understand. Baby Intelligence said that Mr. Stupid NoHead's inability to understand love would negate this possibility. NoHead's chest rose and fell rapidly, and Baby Intelligence could feel the blade coming. He added that every moment either of them had lived, had led to this. Baby Intelligence twitched this sword, and he felt the eyes of everyone in the chamber upon it. Baby Intelligence then whispered that it all came down to this.
At this point Mr. Stupid NoHead engaged Baby Intelligence and quickly incapacitated him. However, his final attempt on the life of the Grandmaster was foiled by Merlin's second apprentice, who hotly refused to join forces with the Dark Lord and instead fired a Mutilation Curse at Annabeth Black. Resentful at this display of magic, NoHead engaged the wizard in a fantastic duel. Overwhelmed by his opponent's curses, NoHead found that he had met his match. As Lindsay Kellerman arrived, NoHead pretended to flee, hiding under a large platform.
Mr. Stupid NoHead reemerged immediately, threatening his adversaries with their doom. Using his last ounce of strength, Baby Intelligence rose and entered into the Voice of Sir Edgar, a spiritual and ethereal form. Lindsay did likewise and an electric bond locks their bodies together. Baby Intelligence extends his hand, which instantly blazed with light and the robots dissipated immediately. Bound to Baby Intelligence, Kellerman was forced to do likewise, assisting in destroying the mutations.
Baby Intelligence and Kellerman engaged in a short but heated battle with Mr. Stupid NoHead, trying to dominate each others' mind. Mr. Stupid NoHead tried to sway them, but they both defied him with scornful words. NoHead's body began to fluctuate, constantly revolving and reshaping as the babies assault him and attempt to drive him into the Fire Room. The outcome was that the two babies were able to penetrate NoHead's mind and Kellerman issued a single command "Return to the underworld where you belong!" Unable to resist them any longer, Mr. Stupid NoHead fell back into the Fire Room and burned to death immediately. But Baby Intelligence and Kellerman were both rendered weak after their strife and fell back; the Prime Minister rushed in to support Kellerman while Merlin's apprentice did likewise for Baby Intelligence.
A moment later, Mr. Stupid NoHead's mangled corpse exploded in a mass of Dark energy, sending deadly waves at the platform. Merlin's apprentice sacrificed himself, sprinting forwards and hurtling all his magic at the waves. The employment of magic was far too much for the old man, who died as the Dark energies disappeared.
Postmortem (January 7, 2020-April 2180)Edit
Even though Mr. Stupid NoHead’s second death prevented him from ever returning to Earth, his legacy would endure long after his ultimate defeat. His entire reign led to the world’s ruin and the deaths of hundreds of millions, especially in North America. The leading members and facets of the government also managed to survive despite the NoHeads’ eighty-year reign, even though it had to reform somewhat from the damage caused by the NoHeads. There were even people who craved for another one of his returns, most notably Thomas Meyer.
Possession and breakout Edit
He located the ghost of Hell Burnbottom in 2026, who had been feeding off snakes. In 2027, the ghost of Mr. Stupid NoHead possessed Darren Slade. Under NoHead's control, Darren committed many crimes throughout the next few months. Darren was terrified, knowing something had happened to him, but not knowing what. The unusual amount of illicit activity was eventually sensed by Master Intelligence, who quickly found the source and engaged Darren in combat. Eventually, Master Intelligence won the duel and was then able to help Slade eject NoHead from his body, and Darren was more himself. NoHead's soul fled in a rage.
Mr. Stupid NoHead returned to the Rochester forest, weaker than ever. He had to wait yet again for someone to help him. In January 2030, he saw his chance to free Whammo Fireball, Cygnus Evans, and Darren Slade, and he committed a mass breakout from Beta Prison, setting the three long-imprisoned men loose. Mr. Stupid NoHead's ghost had little trouble arranging this, as many of the jail guards were frightened by the mere look of him. In firing a huge beam at the wall, the wall cracked and exploded. Whammo and Cygnus joined him in the forests. This incident was later reported in the newspaper.
Two months after the breakout, Mr. Stupid NoHead’s soul tracked down Jonathan, a boy taking refuge in a graveyard, planning to take his life as his own. However, the boy had seen him coming. Worried for his life, the boy took up the Sword of Abomination, which he had acquired a few years back. He seized it up quickly and vanquished NoHead’s evil spirit. NoHead was destroyed for good, ceasing to exist by extension. Even though this event prevented his spirit from ever returning to the mortal plane, it did not stop his son, Hell Burnbottom, from returning to life in 2033 and continuing the NoHead war for another two years, though this ultimately saw the end of the NoHeads for good when he died a second time.
Eventually, Mr. Stupid NoHead's ideas ended up becoming the basis of the regime that developed into the Knights of Plague, the NoHeads' successor, led by a Dark mutant who the Dark Lord once commanded, the Gladiator. Mr. Stupid NoHead and his evil ways would also inspire the Dark Flame in his quest for power and supremacy.
Over a century after Mr. Stupid NoHead's fall, a new NoHead Order known as the One NoHeads had been founded by Mr. Devastating NoHead, the son of Mr. Quake NoHead. With thousands of NoHead servants at his disposal, Devastating swore that they would never repeat Mr. Stupid NoHead's mistakes such as letting scattered police officers live. However, unlike Mr. Stupid NoHead, Mr. Devastating NoHead did not adhere to the hierarchy of his predecessor, which caused many of his enemies to consider him a heretic and pretender. Mr. Devastating NoHead devised the Rule of One. The One was the NoHead Order itself, united under his leadership in order to bring order to the world. The One NoHeads ultimately ended up wiped out with Devastating's permanent destruction, with the NoHeads as a whole later being wiped out by Emma Austin, with Emma herself dying shortly afterwards.
Physical description Edit
Earlier in life, Mr. Stupid NoHead was tall and handsome, with pale skin, jet black hair, and dark eyes. NoHead’s good looks continued to increase as he grew older, and he cunningly used them to charm many of the other NoHeads.
However, as he became more immersed in the Darkness, his good looks left him, with his features becoming gnarled, and his skin becoming as pale as snow. His eyes became a sickly red and he had a hook nose. In 2019, however, a combat machine took a toll on NoHead’s appearance. After Paige’s attack on him, he was left with the appearance of a gnarled, ancient man. He was also lost a few teeth. His long, thin hands and usual dress in a heavy, dark cloak did not change after the transformation. It is also mentioned that NoHead had no lips and very little hair. NoHead had a rather cold, guttural voice with a slightly rasping element.
Personality and traits Edit
Through his own nature, Mr. Stupid NoHead was irrevocably evil. He made clear, however, that he did not believe himself to be evil, but simply beyond common morality and what people defined as sanity. He called evil “a label we all put on those who threaten us”, as he told Cardarphen. Aside from his opinion on morality, he believed himself to be the embodiment of evil and the living incarnation of the Darkness. He was instinctively treacherous, betraying and killing several beings who trusted him, including his own wife. The Qisheng killed so many he created an army of Arboc. Inevitably, he performed the darkest of mutantry and had no regard for human life. In his quest for power, he showed that he was also patient, narcissistic, and vastly intelligent, the latter shown by his training scores and tremendous achievements.
Despite this, Mr. Stupid NoHead’s interests were narrowly focused on the usefulness of people, objects, and powers to his goals. His inability to see the larger picture and inattention to events, powers and human traits that were not immediately useful to him was a serious flaw that led to most of his setbacks and ultimately his first death.
After his first defeat, many (namely Force Baby, Baby Intelligence, Ninna, Dexter among others) believed that he had yet to be truly vanquished, and would one day return on the grounds as there was not enough humanity left in him to die in the first place. Mr. Stupid NoHead was completely incapable of love; he felt no desire or need for human companionship or friendship. The closest he came to caring about another living being was feeling moderate affection for his heir and eldest son, Hell Burnbottom. NoHead thought of everything in terms of power (which he equated to domination through ability). He was somewhat willfully ignorant of people or matters which he considered to have no value.
Mr. Stupid NoHead himself did not value his fellow human beings except to the extent that they were useful to him. He often described his followers as 'friends' and his inner circle even as 'the family he had never possessed', but in no way treated them like an ordinary person does their friends or family. He demanded his followers' unswerving loyalty and obedience, spitefully took revenge for their mistakes or even bad luck by torture or targeting family members and mistreated or even killed them at the slightest provocation. His callous attempt to sacrifice Bethany Donner by ordering her to assassinate Hayden as punishment for the blunders of the child's parents serves as evidence of this.
It is noted that Mr. Stupid NoHead is unusually stoic. While most D.I.T. villains have displayed some sense of humor or immaturity, NoHead has not displayed such an attitude once. His every word and movement is calm and chilling. He even packed elements of this in his teen years, but not to the relative perfection of his natural traits as an adult. For example, when his most valued prisoner escaped his grip, he lost his temper and destroyed the cell with his powers.
The Dark Lord was a highly twisted, manipulative, and seductive megalomaniac, easily bending others to his will in his quest for supremacy. A narcissist, Mr. Stupid NoHead identified his own essence with the very blackness of space, even going so far as to declare himself the ultimate personification of the Darkness. NoHead also displayed traits of psychopathy, including extreme sadism and cruelty, taking considerable pleasure in the suffering and deaths of others. His sadism was such that, when murdering his wife, Mrs. Twisted NoHead, in her sleep, he paused to mock her for being manipulated by him and revel in her pain before running her through. Another example of this was when he deflected gunfire from Greg Hecks for an extended time period, taking pleasure in Greg's fear before finally disarming him at whim. His inherent sadism apparently had its roots with his father, Mr. Crooked NoHead — a penchant for violence was one of the few things the two men did not have in common. Regarding his views on failure, he was unforgiving and likely to execute less useful individuals. Burnbottom also mentioned on one occasion, while comparing himself to his father, that while he himself killed only when necessary, NoHead did it to amuse himself.
Mr. Stupid NoHead had a need for independence that bordered on pathological, and he preferred to operate in secrecy and solitude whenever possible.
Even as a child, Mr. Stupid NoHead was demonstrated to be manipulative, psychopathic, and selfish. This is especially evident by his frequent breaking of various rules and social norms, knowing full well that his father, whom he hated, would simply murder the authorities to make the problem disappear. Even at this point, NoHead’s main goal was nothing less than the acquisition of absolute power.
Although possessed of a hunger for power, he honestly came to regret the NoHead Cataclysm. Seeing no one more powerful than himself, he deemed only himself as worthy of ruling the world. In addition, despite his narcissistic nature, Mr. Stupid NoHead was capable of acknowledging his mistakes. However, he did not learn from them, especially concerning values he did not care for such as love. And contrary to popular belief, NoHead was a prolific author. He was a known patron of the arts, attending the opera whenever able and making his chosen section invisible. He was also a skilled strategist, having orchestrated the robot attack and Mayor’s kidnapping for his own benefit.
Despite his exceptional skills in fencing and his mastery of the darkness, Mr. Stupid NoHead was no less susceptible to anger and hate, the primary emotions of the darkness, than any other NoHead. He also utilized escape tactics, and during their first confrontation attempted to flee rather than fight, and only confronted Baby Intelligence when he appeared to have no other choice. Fear ultimately proved to be NoHead’s weakness.
However, despite Mr. Stupid NoHead’s general malicious ways he had proven that he was capable of acknowledging the desires of others but only if those desires did not interfere with his ambitions and were presented by someone whom he deemed a worthy servant. The only time this was ever really seen was when he agreed to his half-sister, Hadeline’s, plea for Bridgett Kellerman’s life. Although he did not agree to spare Bridgett with no conditions, he said he would offer her the chance to live if she did not attempt to stop him from murdering her daughter. Uncharacteristically, NoHead followed through on his promise to Hadeline and gave Bridgett several chances to step aside. However, when she refused him and attempted to seize her gun, NoHead murdered her with no other options.
One odd incident in Mr. Stupid NoHead’s life occurred on the night he murdered Bridgett and Zach. As he walked down a street lane on his way to their house, on his way to kill the infant Lindsay Kellerman, in a most unusual act of mercy, he decided to spare the life of a Muggle child who had complimented the impressiveness of his “costume”, not realizing that NoHead was not in costume but a black-robed villain with a pale, disfigured face. Killing him for his interference was an act NoHead had deemed “unnecessary”. NoHead’s reasoning for this was not made clear though it can be surmised that NoHead had chosen not to use magic until he had arrived at the Kellerman’s house in case his presence was detected by any spies. Another possibility is that Mr. Stupid NoHead simply thought the child was not worth his time or effort.
Despite his narcissistic nature, Mr. Stupid NoHead could acknowledge his mistakes. Nevertheless, Baby Intelligence said that he didn't learn from them, especially relating to matters he did not value such as love. When he was angry, NoHead was unpredictable: he was capable of being cold and calm, indeed being one of the most stoic villains ever to dabble in mutantry, but could also explode with rage and when he lost his temper he never hesitated to slay even his own loyal followers. He expected complete respect from the NoHeads but did not truly care for any of them in return. He did rescue Annabeth Black during the rescue of Baby Strength and would flatter her on occasion. It is likely, though, that he was concerned about a very powerful and talented servant, rather than truly loving Black as a person.
One flaw that Mr. Stupid NoHead did not possess, despite his egomania, was thinking himself infallible. He acknowledged his mistakes on several occasions, seeking to make hay of his missteps, openly revealing such unflattering information to his followers and using it to illustrate how he could use his wits to further enhance his powers.
Upon his return in 2012, Mr. Stupid NoHead showed a degree of calculated humility. He showed his followers leniency, even though they had not sought to help him after his downfall, realizing he could not afford to mistreat them until returning to full strength.
On a lesser note, Mr. Stupid NoHead did appear to fall short when it came to acquiring a truly worthy apprentice to the NoHeads’ heir. Despite being falsely convinced of Rotta’s undying loyalty, he killed her out of anger. After cautiously preparing for Sebiscuits’ fall to the darkness, and finally having him as his own, he was betrayed mere months later. In addition, regarding his own apprentices, he usually betrayed them and engineered their deaths when they either proved weak or if they failed him. In fact, the closest NoHead ever came to actually valuing any of his apprentices was with Hell Burnbottom, having spared him largely because he was still powerful, and also because he needed an heir should he die. He also seemed to consider Annabeth Black to be important, he at least treated her with respect.
When Mr. Stupid NoHead was brought back to life in 2020, he still possessed some of his twisted personality traits, most notably his sadism, megalomania, and inability to love, kept intact. However, due in part to his rebirth, he had also become more outwardly maniacal and sadistic, constantly cackling insanely as well as occasionally trying to play extremely cruel jokes on his children. Despite his insanity, he was also extremely intelligent and calculating, wanting to ensure that he not overlook anything in order to make his plans an absolute success. He also appeared to be highly demented and ferocious, more so than his original self.
Powers and abilities Edit
Trained to perfection by his parents, Mr. Stupid NoHead was considered by many to be the most powerful NoHead in history — something he himself firmly believed. His status as such had also been documented within the the second edition of an important historical chronicle. He was also considered the one mutant to have successfully tamed the Darkness, exceeding even that of Lord Smasa.
Mr. Stupid NoHead was incredibly skilled in sword combat, one of the greatest duelists of all time. A NoHead Swordmaster, he was one of the very few who was the equal of Hell Burnbottom and Baby Intelligence. As a result of his tremendous skill, he killed two sword-wielding police — Katy Smith and Caleb Hawkins — each with a single blow, and while also engaged with Paige, he slew Jason Williams only moments later. He also put up a ferocious fight against Paige, but was eventually disarmed by the latter. Although he may have feigned weakness to manipulate Sebiscuits into betraying the S.M.S.B.<ref name="TS' /> He was able to hold his own against Baby Intelligence in a sword duel, but in the end was defeated.
He was ambidextrous and could change his fighting style at a whim — keeping his opponents unsure of what his next move would be. During his assassination of the Gran Protectorate in 1997, the speed and ferocity of his technique was so great that it appeared as though his victims were dispatched by a phantom. A master of every form of sword combat and stances, NoHead was a terrifying opponent. His dueling style was extremely aggressive; his style was a combination of brutal aggression and lethal precision making him an almost unstoppable opponent. In fact, the only people known to have defeated him in combat were Paige and Baby Intelligence.
Even as a thirteen-year-old, Mr. Stupid NoHead displayed a prowess in an acrobatic and offensive form of sword combat in his duel against Jean, a police officer. Despite his skill with a sword, he was unable to defeat Sheriff Bladepoint, whose own life was spent honing his survival skills, and who was able to embrace the Light during his confrontation with the dark mutant.
In addition to his fencing skills, Mr. Stupid NoHead was one of the most powerful men of all time. NoHead’s relationship with the darkness was so deep to the point that he became a possession of the dark, and the dark became a possession of his. As an apprentice under his parents’ tutelage, he learned all the known dark powers of his predecessors, until he considered himself even stronger. NoHead’s mastery of his powers was such that he felt a virtual monster rising from the core of his self, impatient to unleash itself. Even prior to his training, his telepathy was powerful enough to block out his parents’ own in 1983. He was a master of lightning and was known to use this power openly. If used to its full potency, he could instantly reduce one or more people into charred husks. He could also use this power in conjunction with telekinesis to electrify levitated objects before hurling them at his opponents, thus increasing the damage potency of the attack. He was also extremely skilled with telekinesis, even to which he was able to move small objects while barely even lifting his finger. NoHead also possessed the power of flight. He also utilized an ability allowing him to mask his presence in the darkness, and virtually become invisible.
- "Conquer the temptation to create specimens that are superior in every way. The danger of such monstrosities being turned against you is too great."
- ―Mr. Stupid NoHead, from The Creation of Monsters[src]
Mr. Stupid NoHead was a master of alchemy, an ancient art he was taught by Mr. Crooked NoHead. He wrote about alchemy in The Creation of Darkness, the unfinished last part of his Dark Treasury. He rediscovered the long-forgotten art of creating chrysalides, and used it to alchemically alter noils into giant, fearsome beasts used as pets at his private Citadel, as he planned to have them enforce his future Empire. He also created skyfighters into hulking monsters, used against the police during the NoHead Cataclysm. The Dark Lord also possessed some knowledge of magic, allowing him to use arcane rituals to detect poisons and drugs in food and drink and cast a limited variety of spells. He could utter incantations in the English language. Additionally, with only two incantations he could drain the invincibility of his opponents.
Another very advanced ability he used was apparition, allowing him to shift to different places at a whim. NoHead is the only known mutant besides Master Intelligence and Jamboga Pine to be able to apparate silently.
Even before being told that he was a mutant, or having any knowledge of mutantry at all, the young Mr. Stupid NoHead displayed an exceptional degree of control over his usage of underage mutantry, which he used to torment many of the other cublings at the nursery. He was able to move objects with his mind, control animals to do his bidding, and even make bad things happen to those who annoyed him. Even Mr. Crooked NoHead commented that his powers were surprisingly well-developed for his young age, and that his level of control over them had made him uneasy.
Mr. Stupid NoHead was incredibly adept in the use of both Mind resistance and telepathy, being able to shield his own mind and penetrate the minds of others. He was particularly skilled in telepaty, and gained a reputation as one of the most accomplished invader the world has ever seen. His frighteningly tremendous telepathic powers allowed NoHead to delve and peer deep into the minds of others, seeing their deepest thoughts, and according to Annabeth Black, NoHead could not only read, but also control and unhinge the minds of others, with him often enjoying telepathically invading the minds of others, creating visions designed to torture them, and only killing them after reveling in their pain. Hence, NoHead could almost always tell when someone was lying. However, when Black lied that she had been out at the training fields, Mr. Stupid NoHead notably believed her. The most remarkable part about this skill was that he seemed to be working on it while he was still a child in the nursery. Extremely few people were skilled enough in Mind resistance to shield themselves from him. Annabeth, Sheriff Bladepoint, and also possibly Greg Hecks were notable exceptions to this. After his second death, his soul proved able to possess the body of Darren Slade, though his power drove Slade completely insane for a time.
Mr. Stupid NoHead was highly adept at foreseeing the future, often utilizing the power to see his plots to fruition. By the time of his final death, he had become a nexus of the dark side capable of tearing apart the fabric of space.
Behind The scenes Edit
From the very beginning of the writing process on The Super Babies, D. Isaac Thomas had in mind a character that would eventually develop into Mr. Stupid NoHead as he is currently known. One of the earliest documents — perhaps the earliest — regarding the project is a paper dating to early 2008, a roster of names he compiled to potentially use in the story, many of which were not used. At the very top of this list is the name "Doctor Crisis", which is understandable, as Thomas was working on a school project where he was allowed to name the antagonist. Thomas would have named him Mr. Stupid NoHead, but his teammates strongly disagreed and the name was shelved for a more official project.
In the comic book of The Super Babies: Prequel I: Zero to Hero, Mr. Stupid NoHead's eyes are shown to be yellow, as it is stated in the novelization. However, in The Super Babies: Prequel II: The Second Hero and The Super Babies: Prequel III: The S.M.S.B., NoHead has red eyes. He also has yellow eyes in The Super Babies: Prequel IV: The Last Battle, so his eyes are probably yellow and the red a mistake. On the other hand, his eyes are definitely red in
Like many personalities in The Super Babies universe, parallels can be drawn between Mr. Stupid NoHead's character and certain historical figures.
Mr. Stupid NoHead’s physical appearance is comparable to that of the Evil Queen’s witch form in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Coincidentally, both of their disfigured appearances had some relation to lightning that they summoned (the Queen added lightning to a potion as part of an ingredient to fashion a disguise for herself and NoHead’s body ended up disfigured as a result of lightning, amid other things, involved in his Death Booth activated by Paige).
Mr. Stupid NoHead has several similarities to Lord Voldemort of the Harry Potter series as well. Both of them grew up virtually friendless. Both of them "will never know love, nor friendship." Both wear cloaks daily. Both are very stoic. Both have started wars (the Second Wizarding War and the Second NoHead War, respectively). Both have devised plans to come back to life. Both of their archenemies are unusual yet talented children (Harry Potter and Baby Intelligence). Both received no love from their fathers. Both have an army and both operate through fear. His death mimics that of Voldemort's first Horcrux, or soul fragment, where both are tortured unintentionally by their archenemy (who is a child) and then their bodies essentially explode.
When D. Isaac Thomas learned that an article had been published in the newspaper titled "Why Obama is probably the inspiration for Mr. Stupid NoHead", Thomas insisted that NoHead "wasn't nearly as evil."
D. Isaac Thomas has claimed that Mr. Stupid NoHead is entirely incapable of love, empathy, or friendship, though for a time he would not reveal why. However, a Twitter post confirmed that it was because he had come from a loveless union; his entire life had been spent into the dark side. This also explains why he has never been depicted in a positive way. NoHead is often considered by fans as one of the most evil fictional villains ever, comparable even to Darth Vader of Star Wars. Nevertheless, a fanfiction was once written in which NoHead survives his canonical death, joins the light side, and finds he is actually capable of loving another. However, this was not canon.
Mr. Stupid NoHead as a cultural figure Edit
In large part because of his being the central antagonist of the franchise, Mr. Stupid NoHead had entered American popular culture as an iconic villain depicting pure evil. As such he was frequently imitated. One example was BuzzFlash comparing Adolf Hitler to Mr. Stupid NoHead.
The Ultimate NoHead Edition Edit
While Mr. Stupid NoHead subdued Ronald Koda with lightning, Abalan gave in to his hatred for the Gladiator and chose to destroy his former Master rather than save the police officer. After the Gladiator's death at the hands of his own apprentice, Mr. Stupid NoHead was pleased to be rid of the Gladiator and applauded Abalan's actions with enthusiasm. But before Mr. Stupid NoHead can officially declare his apprentice as a true NoHead, the Emperor requires Abalan to complete a final test — forsake the police forever by killing Koda. As the apprentice raises his blade to strike down the fallen General, Abalan suddenly turns and attempts to kill the Emperor, only for his blade to be blocked by Mr. Stupid NoHead’s own sword. Having anticipated Abalan’s treachery, the Emperor blasts the NoHead assassin with lightning just before using the Dark side to crash the Shadow Laser into Abalan.
Mr. Stupid NoHead commands that Abalan be rebuilt using prosthetic replacements. When the apprentice awakes on an operating table, Mr. Stupid NoHead is deeply disappointed in Abalan’s fate. The Emperor declares that the apprentice will serve until a new candidate can be chosen, at which point Abalan will be discarded as the Gladiator was before him. As NoHead turns to leave, Abalan is left in excruciating pain as the Healers recreate him into Lord Abalan.
As the Emperor’s new apprentice and personal assassin, Lord Abalan is charged with destroying the police.
Survival of the NoHeads Edit
During his final fight with Baby Intelligence, Mr. Stupid NoHead falls into the Fire Room. At the last minute, he telekinetically summons a Nyoraginn flower, which allows him to survive. Believing their enemy had burned to death, the S.M.S.B. members leave.
With the loss of his army and the knowledge that his sons believe him dead, Mr. Stupid NoHead ventures to the beach, having nowhere else to go. Upon arriving, he collapses in front of the ocean, where he's approached by a “mailman” named Hannah Hunter. He asks NoHead if he's all right, and NoHead, believing the mailman dispensable, says he feels lost. When the mailman asks for emphasis, NoHead says his way of life is lost. Out of empathy, the mailman invites NoHead to his apartment. Mr. Stupid NoHead passes himself off as Peter Kellerman and Beakers the parrot joins them.
Inside the car, the mailman asks for more of “Peter’s” backstory, but NoHead refuses to speak. Upon arriving home, the mailman went to change clothes, and told NoHead to make himself comfortable. However, after waiting for a good half hour, he went down to check on the individual.
Upon seeing the walls are pink and the mailman was wearing a bra, NoHead became suspicious. Before he could deduce anything else, the mailman slammed the door. Shortly afterwards, the mailman emerges and NoHead demands for the truth. Left with no choice, the “mailman” confirms his suspicions and reveals her true name, swearing NoHead to secrecy.
NoHead remained with Hunter for weeks. He began to warm up to her, confusing him. He did not want to believe that he had changed.
After returning from a grocery store, Mr. Stupid NoHead and Hannah Hunter encounter a boa constrictor on their porch. As Hunter steps back, NoHead slaughtered the snake with a death beam. Hunter was shocked, as NoHead had told her that he was a Muggle, and NoHead finally reveals the truth, adding that he had a change of heart. Still, she beckons him inside, only for them to be captured by a dragon. An imp began to taunt them, but NoHead summons his sword, kills the dragon, and frees Hunter.
As Hannah watches, the imp duels Mr. Stupid NoHead, eventually disarming him. Hannah sees the sword nearby and seizes it, using it to kill the imp. NoHead rises to his feet and Hannah gave him his weapon. In response, NoHead reveals that Peter was never his real name. Hannah in turn revealed her own identity fully.
After their encounter, Mr. Stupid NoHead sets out to find his own living quarters. Nevertheless, he still keeps in touch with Hannah Hunter. He succeeds by January of 2030, as he was truly disturbed to learn that the ghost of the now deceased Hell Burnbottom had freed Whammo Fireball, Cygnus Evans, and Darren Slade, from Beta Prison, setting the three long-imprisoned men loose.
Eventually, Mr. Stupid NoHead dies naturally in 2169.
In this non-canonical novel, which takes place in 2020, Mr. Stupid NoHead’s unconventional daughter with Rotta, Daphine, will attempt to rewrite the timeline in order to bring back her father. Though she will ultimately fail, one of the attempts by Baby Strength and Force Baby to change the timeline and save Lisa Kirke and prevent her death (unknowingly to them orchestrated by Daphine herself), will result in a temporary timeline where Lisa never died, and where NoHead succeeded in killing Baby Intelligence aboard the Wasp. This alternate timeline where NoHead both lived and won the NoHead War will eventually be prevented and changed back into the original timeline through the efforts of Force Baby and the alternate timeline’s versions of Annabeth Black, Lindsay Kellerman, and Sebiscuits Cardarphen.
Following the restoration of the original timeline, Daphine will attempt to go back in time to 6 August where Mr. Stupid NoHead went after Paige, and prevent him from doing so, hoping to ensure NoHead was never defeated. Every single S.M.S.B. member would go back to try to stop her, and during this attempt, the group tries to catch her off guard by making Baby Intelligence disguise himself as Mr. Stupid NoHead himself. While he was eventually discovered, the group was nonetheless able to prevent Daphine’s plan from succeeding and captured her. However before they leave back into their own time, both Baby Intelligence and Daphine are forced to witness the beginning of the NoHead Cataclysm.
Other affairs Edit
Mr. Stupid NoHead is definitely one of the most serious D.I.T. villains, as he never makes any kind of joke and he always maintains his frightening and villainous image no matter what the situation.
It was briefly implied that Andy Serkis would have been a good voice actor for Mr. Stupid NoHead, should “The Super Babies” be made into a movie. This actor was most famous for playing Gollum in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and Supreme Leader Snoke in Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
- "…and Mr. Stupid NoHead takes the limelight."
Author's comments Edit
- "Everything he does is an act of pure narcissism, and that's interesting to play. And I suppose for him, it's also a bit of a turn-on; the pure exercise of power is what he's all about. That's the only thing he's interested in and the only thing that can satisfy him, which makes him completely fascinating to write about, because it is an evil soul. He is more evil than the devil. At least Satan fell; he has a history, and it's one of revenge."
- "He has a black, irredeemable heart. There's nothing that can be said about him that's good. But who can blame him? In part his decisions stem from his traumatic childhood, and his impatient lust for power."
