Little is known of Eric's past, save that after being blinded in an accident he discovered that he was a mutant, able to see from the perspective of cats, and control their minds. While applying for disability insurance, his agent, Daphne Faversham, discovered his gift, and the two hatched a plan to scam millions from jewelry stores which held policies with her company.[1]

Nighteyes committed several robberies toward this end, using his army of cats, which were investigated by Spider-Woman. She quickly discovered that each of the crime scenes triggered her allergy to cats, and after some investigation, learned that all the stores that were hit bought from the same insurance and alarm companies, which led her back to Daphne. Daphne gave up Eric's whereabouts, and Mattie overcame her allergy long enough to defeat him and send him to prison.[1]


Though having been completely blinded, Eric has the mutant ability to see through the eyes of nearby felines, as well as to control their actions. He can use up to one hundred cats at a time as such, it is unknown whether this power only works on domestic cats or if it would also work on other types of felines.[1]


Eric was a knowledgeable thief and burglar who operated as a second-story man even before he realised he had powers, as such he has the knowledge and skills to enter a building and steal undetected.[1]


Eric was blind and without nearby cats would be unable to see at all.[1]
