Mister Doll was a criminal who could mystically harm a person by harming a doll whose features he could reshape to resemble the victim's. He was defeated by Iron Man who reshaped Dolly's doll to take on his own features[2].

Mister Doll

Nathan Dolly as Mister Doll

Later, in the process of creating the Brothers Grimm dolls, Nathan's consciousness is trapped simultaneously inside both doll mannequins. They are used by Nathan's wife Priscilla to power a pair of life size versions. She names them Jake and William (the names are a take on the Brothers Grimm), treats them as if they are her sons, and they in turn completely believe this to be true.

Priscilla's plan is to use her occult knowledge to transfer Nathan's mind from the mannequins to a living human body. These efforts are stopped by Spider-Woman, and Nathan's consciousness disperses away.

The Brothers Grimm could emit poisonous smoke from their hands.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit


As Mister Doll, Nathan Dolly was a normal human with no special powers or abilities.

As the Brothers Grimm, Nathan Dolly's spirit co-inhabited a pair of life-sized manikins which could he could animate individually (as Brother Grimm) or simultaneously. The Brothers Grimm's precise physical abilities and limitations were unknown.

The Brothers Grimm could conjure a variety of novelty items with special offensive capabilities. The objects appeared as if by sleight of hand, and seemed to be limited to a size that can be held with one hand. Apparently they could conjure whatever items they could imagine; the limit to the number of items they could conjure in rapid succession is not known. Among the items they conjured are knockout gas, dehydrating gas, detachable exploding hands, exploding Grimm grenades, hard beans that served as throwing weapons, a pile of dough-like material that could adhere to the face of its target. They have also used conventional weapons, such as an axe or anything they could get their hands upon.

The Brothers Grimm have employed floating five-pointed stars or small cloud banks to perch upon, and upon which they can travel at moderate speed. They could also appear and vanish in a puff of smoke.

Their masks were adhered to their faces via a chemical compound, such that none but they could remove it, via another chemical.
