The Fiddler's weapon of choice is a Stradavarius violin which has been enhanced by a combination of his and the Wizard's mystical skill. Although he can achieve some of these effects using any violin, the mystical enhancements add to the power and/or duration of the effects. Among the FEATS the Fiddler can perform are:
The Fiddler can totally vaporize any matter with Good ability. This means that 10 cubic feet of matter of Remarkable strength (such as reinforced concrete or steel) may be disintegrated at a range of 4 areas.

The Fiddler's Stradavarius can generate intense sound, and make attacks of Excellent damage (sufficient to destroy iron or bullet-proof glass at a range of 6 areas. The same sound waves can also disrupt other sound-based attacks by creating a dissonance with the other source of attack.

The Fiddler can create a force field which will protect a single area from any physical or sound-based attacks of up to Remarkable intensity.

Anyone within hearing range of the Fiddler's violin (the optimum range is 20 feet) will become vulnerable to commands issued by the Fiddler. He commonly uses this effect to force people to dance vigorously and uncontrollably for as long as he plays.

At any given time, the Fiddler may be armed with special violins, of lessor quality than his Stradavarius. Each of these instruments will still play, but they have been customised to serve other purposes, and may contain such things as guns, explosives, or cameras.

A common thief living in India, Isaac Bowin was captured while attempting to steal from a local merchant. Thrown into prison, Bowin discovered that his cell-mate was a Hindu fakir who used the music of a wooden pipe to control a deadly cobra. After much urging, the fakir agreed to teach Bowin the ancient mystic lore of the East, and for the next five years Bowin learned all the fakir had to teach him, ultimately growing far more proficient than his teacher. Finally, using a special fiddle he had fashioned from materials in his cell, Bowin and the fakir made good their escape.

Having no more need of the fakir, Bowin used his fiddle to slay him. Then, after also killing the merchant responsible for his imprisonment, Bowin made his way back to America, determined to become the country's greatest crime boss.

Now calling himself the Fiddler, Bowin first appeared on the streets of Keystone City, driving a bizarre vehicle shaped like a giant fiddle. This attracted the attention of the comet-quick crimebuster called the Flash, who attempted to arrest the Fiddler, only to be thwarted by the mystic vibrations of the mad musician's violin.

After several frustrating attempts to defeat the Fiddler, Flash finally confronted the vile violinist on a city pier and watched helplessly as the violin's vibrations crumbled the pier beneath the Fiddler's feet, and the villainous violinist apparently plunged to his doom.

Unfortunately, the Fiddler survived, returning several times to confront the Flash, alone and as a member of, first, the Injustice Society of the World and, later, the Crime Champions of two different decades.

Although he had temporarily gained a bit of weight, at this writing the Fiddler is safely back behind prison bars, where he has lost that excess poundage and is once more his slender self.
