Summary Edit

Horace is the chief of Mighty Med. He hired Kaz and Oliver. It is also revealed in Storm's End that he is the legendary superhero healer Caduceo, who went into hiding for a long time.


Horace has a goofy personality but he does possess a serious side, especially dealing with villains. He's always cracking jokes and loves bridges. He is funny and always gets the job done. He has trained for years as a medical worker to work at Mighty Med. However, his punishments are extremely Draconian--failing an exam or breaking rules are met with cubing.


Oliver (Good Friends/Future Step-son) Edit

Horace is good friends with Oliver and was immediately impressed by his knowledge of superheroes. Horace also doesn't seem to get annoyed by Oliver. Because Horace is engaged to Oliver's mom, Oliver is his potential stepson.

Kaz (Good Friends) Edit

At first, Horace disliked Kaz and didn't want to hire him until Oliver changed his mind, After Kaz saved Tecton's life, he finally trusted him. However there are times when Kaz disobeys Horace's orders.

Skylar (Good Friends/Honorary Daughter) Edit

Horace has a strong friendship with Skylar and in Evil Gus, when Horace acts like Skylar's dad, it made him realize he wants kids really badly. Despite being good friends with Skylar, in the Season 1 finale, Horace was fine with kicking Skylar out of the hospital and finds her very greedy.

Alan (Nephew) Edit

Horace is the uncle to Alan. Most of the times, Horace gets annoyed by Alan's selfish and annoying behavior but deep inside he truly loves him. In fact, Horace is concerned for Alan's well-being in order to protect him from Razor Claw.


  • Chronokinesis - He can control the flow of time. This allows him to switch clothes with other people faster than a blink of an eye.
    • Superhuman Speed - He can slow time down around him to give watchers the illusion that he moves at super speed.
    • Temporal Stasis - He is able to freeze someone in suspended animation, however it only works for a short while (depending on the person he uses it on), or as long as he can maintain it.  
  • Immortality - Its revealed that Horace is immortal, and is at least 3000 years old.
  • Healing - As the legendary healer, he possesses the ability and extensive knowledge to heal even superheroes.
  • Resurrection - By chanting the words "Thanatoi bios, bioi thanatos!", a wand with two serpents twined around it appears, and brings a subject to life. However, Horace was only able to this 5 times, and now he only has one left. Resurrection has a horrible irreversible side affect; Horace gains a pound right in his hips, and it is very noticeable.
  • Superhuman Intelligence - Horace is a very intelligent man in many disciplines, and does his own research. However his childish and goofy personality can make him look like a dim-witted man.


  • Electric Fields - His powers are blocked by electric fields.  
  • Mirror of Zalkanikus - If a superhero looks into it, their powers will be drained.
  • Arrogance - Horace is very arrogant, and at times seems to be a borderline egomaniac. Although most of the time he simply appears harmlessly eccentric and wacky, at times he can be greedy, selfish and jerkish. His arrogance also creates other problems, such as putting too much confidence in Mighty Med's security system, whose staff is competent half the the time. In Oliver Hatches the Eggs, it's shown on occasion he has a colossal ego, to the point where he wants to be in a movie "about me, produced by me, and starring me."
