"What you feel now is the power of my hypnotic gaze stopping you from making further fools of yourselves!!"
― Sauron to the New Avengers (Marvel Comics)

The power to hypnotize others via eye contact. Variation of Hypnosis.

Also Called

  • Hypnotic Eyes/Gaze


User can use eye contact to affect or directly influence other people's minds to their commands.




  • Users of Indomitable Will/Psychic Shield (highly resistant), Psychic Immunity (immune), and Control Immunity (immune).
  • Subjects with defectual eyelessness, or in another case, those that have Eyeless Perception are immune. Due to the user of Hypnotic Eyes having to require their vision to control others, the eye roots that happen to transfer visual information into the brain to simulate eyesight are not there, meaning this will make the power useless.
  • Direct eye contact may be needed, so breaking it will break the hypnosis.
  • Will not work if the victim is blind.
  • May require close eye contact.
  • Contact lenses or glasses may limit or cancel this power's intensity.
  • Target may have to be physically present, meaning it may not work if the user tries to hypnotize someone on a talk screen.
  • May not work if either the user or victim has only one eye or has lazy eye, or is near or far sighted and is not wearing glasses.
