'''Douglas Powers''', more commonly known as '''Dr. Evil''', is the main antagonist of the [[Austin Powers (franchise)|''Austin Powers'' franchise]]. He is [[Austin Powers]]' arch-nemesis and twin brother, [[Scott Evil|Scott]]'s father, [[Number 2]] and [[Frau Farbissina]]'s leader and boss, and [[Mini-Me]]'s ex-leader and boss.
Showing how disconnected he is after missing thirty years of history, Dr. Evil proposes plans to make it look like Prince Charles had an affair and therefore would have to divorce, and to punch a hole in the O-Zone layer. However, Number Two informs him both those events have already happened, and Dr. Evil comes up with a plan to hijack a warhead from a breakaway Russian republic and hold the world hostage for one million dollars (corrected to one hundred billion dollars at Number Two's suggestion.)
It is also during this time that Dr. Evil is introduced to his "test tube baby" son, [[Scott Evil]]. Despite Dr. Evil's best efforts, Scott wants nothing to do with him, and it would take a long time for them to develop any kind of meaningful relationship.
Having successfully hijacked the warhead, he proceeds to go through with his plan of launching the warhead, via a [[Project Vulcan|subterranean drill]], to the Earth's core, causing a detonation that would cause every volcano on Earth to erupt simultaneously. Unfortunately, his arch-nemesis, Austin Powers, having also frozen himself thirty years ago, returns. Dr. Evil successfully captures him, but makes the mistake of leaving him in an easily escapable situation. Austin manages to escape and foils Dr. Evil's plan, but Dr. Evil escapes into space once again.
