Mister Mxyzptlk is a villainous trickster from the fifth dimension that enjoys tormenting Superman and other super powered beings. He isn’t bound by the physical laws of our dimension and he can do things that appear to be magical.
“Greetings and salutations, Earth idiot.” – Mister Mxyzptlk
Prompted by his endless search for distractions, Mister Mxyzptlk looks for beings from lesser dimensions to harass for his personal amusement. His antics cause chaos until he can be stopped. One way to return him to his home is by tricking him into saying his own name backwards. Not only will this return him to the fifth dimension, but it will also cause all effects of his magic to vanish with him.

Mister Mxyzptlk feels that Superman’s generally serious attitude makes him an exceptionally entertaining target for shenanigans. While his pranks are more of an annoyance to the Man of Steel than any actual threat, Superman works to force him out of this dimension every time his hijinks begin.
