Blanque is a male comic supervillain who features in DC Comics.
He stated that no prison was able to hold him as he had escaped time after time whereupon he left a trail of deaths in his wake. Several years ago, he came upon an isolated town in America on Earth where he destroyed much of it when he was confronted by Superman. The Man of Steel came to struggle against the villains telekinetic powers but ultimately managed to render him unconscious by taking him into space. He then imprisoned him at his secret citadel built in the mountains where he was kept in a cell designed to prevent him from using his powers to control others from a distance. By the modern day, Superman had brought astronaut Hank Henshaw to his headquarters in order to help him but his presence was telepathically detected by Blanque. The villain then controlled his body and used him to open his cell so that Blanque could be free once more. (Superman: Lois and Clark v1 #3)
