Master Pandemonium (Marvel)
Real Name: Martin Preston
Search for 'Master Pandemonium (Marvel)' on Amazon

Pandemonium has a variety of magical powers. His body, composed of some form of ectoplasm, can spawn off any number of demonic creatures, though his own physical form deteriorates as he gives up more and more of it. His body is immune to most conventional forms of injury. He can alter his own appearance and apparently travel between dimensions. He carried a large sword.

Pandemonium's body formerly contained an unknown number of demons known as the Rakasha. Presumably his body acts as a portal to these demons, though it is also possible that they physically exist within his body in a miniaturized form. His arms, which are actually the arms of four separate demons who normally exist within his body, possess superhuman strength (Class 10). When the demons are unleashed from his body, each regains their full form and has Class 10 strength. He can detach both arms, releasing the demons attached to them, leaving himself without any arms; he can reabsorb the demons and regain the limbs at will.

Pandemonium also has knowledge of arcane demon lore and can perform certain rites of magic. He can expel mystic flames from his mouth; these flames are capable of melting the outer layer of Iron Man's armor. He can project rays of magical concussive force from his hands, levitate, and perhaps other supernatural abilities as yet unrevealed. He formerly had a hole in his abdomen in the shape of an inverted five-pointed star.

Pandemonium formerly held the Amulet of Azmodeus, which allowed him to perform interdimensional teleportation. The Amulet was also able to be used as a weapon against him, causing him pain and injury when it struck him. The Amulet also released Azmodeus, his avian familiar.

Preston presumably had some talent as a movie actor.

When Master Pandemonium first appeared, he told the West Coast Avengers that he had sold his soul to the demon Mephisto in exchange for his life. But Mephisto would allow Pandemonium to regain his soul, he just had to find the five pieces that were hidden across the world. As was later revealed, it was not Pandemonium's soul that was missing, but actual pieces of Mephisto. When Franklin Richards defeated Mephisto, he split him into six pieces. One part reformed into the demon lord and devised the ruse with Master Pandemonium to locate his other-selves. While Pandemonium was an unwitting participant in the reformation of Mephisto, he was responsible for uncovering Wanda's sons as two of the soul shards.
