Fictional character biography
This being was apparently born 10,000 years ago in what is now Central Europe. He apparently was a savage that came to possess some portion of the same Bloodgem that Ulysses Bloodstone would later possess, which gave him immortality and eternal youth. He later came to Britain during the time of Camelot, and impersonated the real Merlin while he was away. The Eternal Sersi exposed the impostor, and the real Merlin placed him in suspended animation.
The false Merlin was revived in modern times, still posing as Merlin, and battled and was defeated by Thor, after which he went back into the coffin. He later became a professional criminal and took the name Warlock, organizing a band of armored mercenaries. He abducted Marvel Girl, battled the original X-Men, and was rendered comatose by Professor X.
Later, as the mentalist Maha Yogi, he attempted to create an army of mind-slaves. He fought and was defeated by the Beast and Iceman. The Maha Yogi then became the chairman of Merlin Industries. With Mongu, the Maha Yogi plotted world conquest, but was defeated by the Hulk and Doctor Druid. During his encounter with the Hulk, his fragment of the Bloodgem was destroyed and he rapidly aged into helplessness. Some time later, the Maha Yogi was revealed to have been created by the Caretakers of Arcturus and to have turned against them. He later appeared alive with his youth apparently restored by unknown means.
Powers and abilities
As a result of mutation induced by the Caretakers of Arcturus, the Maha Yogi had the psionic abilities to control the minds of others, create illusions, project psionic force bolts, levitate objects as large as a building, teleport himself, create force fields and alter his own appearance. His psionic powers have a limited range.
Thanks to his possession of a fragment of the Bloodstone, the Maha Yogi is virtually immortal, and has a physically malleable body.
He has attempted to use true magic, performing a ritual to summon the demon known as Grendel's Mother.
He partnered with Stacy Dolan, a supporting character of Ghost Rider, to investigate cases involving superpower trafficking. He and Dolan eventually found Jaafar Yoosuf, a terrorist who had been arrested previously for buying superpowers. He also teamed up with X-Men members Wolverine and Storm.

Man with the Power
The Man with the Power was the alias given to a fictional character from the Fantastic Four comics series. He appeared only once, in Fantastic Four #234 (September 1981) and was created by John Byrne.
L. R. "Skip" Collins was a perfectly normal, run-of-the-mill middle-aged man with an ordinary life in a boring town—which was just the way he liked it. What he did not know was that his life was unusual in at least one way; he had the power to unconsciously alter the world around him in any way he chose (due to an Atomic Weapon test he had been exposed to as a soldier). It was only his own lack of imagination and ambition, and his general contentment in life, that prevented him from making any truly noticeable changes in the world. For instance, he frequently expressed a wish to see his son cut his hair shorter, but since Skip did not believe that would ever happen, it didn't. Mostly, Skip merely thought he was "lucky" from time to time—things just went his way.
When Skip went on a business trip to New York City, that was his idea of high adventure; until the entire city (indeed, everywhere on Earth) was struck by massive earthquakes. This disaster is caused by the close approach of Ego the Living Planet, who wanted revenge on Earth and its people for what Ego mistakenly believed was Earth's involvement with Ego's enemy, Galactus.
Skip, still unaware of his own powers, began to subconsciously assist the Fantastic Four in their rescue efforts around the city. When he saw the Fantastic Four launching a spacecraft, he mistakenly assumes that they were abandoning the planet (in fact, they were going to confront Ego, but the Living Planet's presence had not been announced to the public). Overcome with fear, Skip wished with all his might that this day had "never happened", pushing his power to its limits, and succeeded in rewriting reality on a global scale. In seconds, the world was back the way it normally was, with no signs (or memories) of any abnormal earthquakes or other damage. However, since the effects were limited only to Earth, the Fantastic Four and Ego were unaffected. To Skip, the day's only noteworthy events had been a trip to New York, and the fact that the strange "buzzing" sensation that had been in the back of his head ever since his Army days, was now gone. Everything else was perfectly normal. And that was just the way he liked it.
