History

Steve Dayton, one of the world's richest men, builds a helmet to enhance his mental abilities and calls himself Mento. This is an attempt on Dayton's part to impress Elasti-Girl (a.k.a Rita Farr) of the Doom Patrol. Although his arrogant manner annoys the male field members of the team, he is successful, Mento and Elasti-Girl are married. They soon adopt Beast Boy (a.k.a Garfield Logan).

Teen Titans

After Elasti-Girl's death, Mento goes mad and creates the Hybrid and blames Beast Boy for the deaths of the original Doom Patrol. The Hybrid is defeated and Raven cures him of his brain problem.

Later costume

Steve Dayton later helps in the battle against the Wildebeest Society. Later on, he becomes Crimelord and tries to frame Deathstroke the Terminator (a.k.a. Slade) for murder, but it is later revealed that Crimelord did it and Deathstroke is cleared of all charges. Crimelord's plans also involved nuclear bombs placed across the country, but this is neutralized by a large gathering of superheros, mainly current and former Teen Titans members.

One Year Later

Steve Dayton is revealed to have returned with the rest of the Doom Patrol. Though a member of the Patrol, he furiously writes novels, supposedly spurred on by a creative streak created by the helmet. He also seems to have developed an addiction again to his helmet, as he claims that Rita is only in love with Mento and not Steve Dayton. He claims to remember his days as The Crimelord, calling them "a glitch in the helmet".

Retaining his age though clean shaven again, Dayton's Mento helmet is now red, and wears a black costume with a yellow lightning bolt across it; this coloration of helmet and costume resembles his original look from the original incarnation of the Patrol.

Seeing the truth about Dr. Niles Caulder (a.k.a The Chief), who is trying to convince Kid Devil to join the Doom Patrol by telling him his own teammates, the Titans, will always despise him as a freak, Dayton shakes off his addiction and finally removes the helmet. Thinking clearly again for the first time in years, he takes the control of the Doom Patrol from The Chief, claiming respect for the other members of the squad, and threatening The Chief if he ever reclaimed his leading role from him.

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

A Rodian crime lord.
"I want people to see me. I'm a crime lord. I can't do business if people can't find me."
Marn Hierogryph

A crime lord was the local or planetary boss of a criminal organization. Crime lords would often surround themselves with lackeys, mercenaries, or bodyguards for protection. Crime lords who oversaw smuggling were known as "smuggling czars."

The goal of most crime lords was to make money. They would achieve this by participating in any illegal activity that generated income, like extortion, gambling, loan sharking, kidnapping, spice cultivation, and distribution and slave trading.

Most successful crime lords had many police, security, and government officials on their payroll in order to operate efficiently. Gangsters also regularly entered into the service of crime lords, though usually these goons and thugs working for a crime lord were not paid nearly as well as the crime lord himself.

Some crime lords prefer to only participate in certain, more "honest" activities such as gambling, loan-sharking, and smuggling because these activities do not harm people as much as extortion or kidnapping. In these activities, the crime lords didn't use cruelty and violence as means of achieving a given goal. Some crime lords even worked with other crime lords to maximize profits.

Hutt crime lords

The Hutts were famous for their ruthlessness, and success in the underworld. Many Hutts would ransack ships for their load. As masters of the criminal underworld, they would steal, cheat, and murder without regret. They often hired smugglers such as Han Solo to transport illegal spice. They would often have a fortress of some kind, often on remote planets, such as Jabba's Palace on Tatooine. Hutt fortresses would usually be guarded by selected mercenaries or bounty hunters. Gamorreans and Weequay were common species to fulfill this duty. Leading an organization of crooks and scum meant competition. The Hutts that got involved with criminal activity were often killed, or enslaved. Only the more cunning and clever Hutts, like Jabba and Borvo, stayed at the top of the food chain. Some Hutts, like Jabba, had such an influence that they actually controlled entire planets.

Along with the Gamorreans and Weequay, Nikto and other ruthless species that wanted a piece of the action were common visitors to Hutt palaces. It was well known that no one saw a Hutt without something to offer. The Hutts associated with bounty hunters frequently, such as Boba Fett.
