There was a cartoon, probably Action Man, several years ago with a central villain (not Dr X) who felt constant pain (but didn't behave like it). He could share/fire/distribute his pain via some kind of black and white lava-lamp-esque energy.
I remember he was a very strange villain because in one episode he was going to 'distribute' his pain via a satellite dish but he was far more happy and relieved than malevolent. Then the heroes blew it up in a standard good vs evil way, forcing him to take back the full burden.
Does anyone know what episode, cartoon and villain I'm remembering?
