"Music Meister" is an extra-dimensional being with unexplained supernatural powers and an author in a possible future. He claims to originate from somewhere possibly independent of the multiverse.
Music Meister allowed himself to be captured by the D.E.O. Once inside, spotting Supergirl, he hypnotized her, broke free of his handcuffs and used Kara's inter-dimensional extrapolator to travel to Earth One in search of "the fastest man alive".
He invaded S.T.A.R. Labs and managed to hypnotize The Flash. Afterwards, possessed with both Kara and Barry's powers, he attempted to rob a bank but was stopped by Vibe, Kid Flash, and the Martian Manhunter, and detained at S.T.A.R. Labs. In the cell, he was confronted by both Iris and Mon-El who wanted him to reverse what he had done to both Barry and Kara. However, he claimed that his powers didn't work that way and the only ones that could free them were themselves. He also claimed that the two of them could save them, if they truly did love them enough. He escaped after Kara and Barry broke free from his illusion, claiming that his lesson had been taught. He explained that he saw the pain that was in both of their hearts and he always rooted for heroes. He wanted Barry and Kara to learn that though they were superheroes and saved people, when it came to love, it meant allowing themselves to be saved once in a while. He then vanished to teach his "lessons" to others.
