When the "Old One" first appeared, he posed as a conventional super-hero named "Doctor Zero." This was really just a ruse on his part. He did executive a few high profile rescues (including rescuing President Ronald Reagan), but "Doctor Zero" was still a manipulative villain. He was probably not a "villain" from his own perspective, but in the context of the stories Shadowline universe stories in which he appears, Doctor Zero is one of the principal antagonist characters.
Doctor Zero has lived since before recorded history and has many aliases. Additional aliases include "Like a Dragon," "He who Smirks", Chief Nothing Sacred, Count Zero, Erik the Red, and "An old Friend."
