Doctor Nikola, a creation of Australian Writer Guy Newell Boothby, is an occultist master villain seeking immortality and world domination.
As well as an astounding intellect, Nikola is incredibly strong and a master of disguise. A potent mesmerist, he is capable of hypnotising the strongest mind, and can fool people into seeing anything he wants. He has created a variety of mutant creatures which do his bidding. He is also a skilled chemist, having manufactured a drug which can extend life indefinitely.
Dr Nikola is generally seen as a cross between Professor Moriarty and Fu Manchu.
