The monster known as Validus is one of the dangerous oddities of the galaxy. His origins are unknown to the general public, but his destructive power, whether brute strength or the “mental lightning” he projects from his brain, are infamous. Efforts were underway to find a means of destroying the captured creature when the Legion recruited him against the Sun-Eater. Since then, Tharok has exerted influence over Validus, using the monster as his strong-arm and enforcer to control the Fatal Five.

In truth, Validus is the son of Garth Ranzz (Lightning Lad) and Imra Ardeen (Saturn Girl), taken from the future by Darkseid at the moment of his birth, and transformed into a monster. Sent backwards in time, Validus menaces his own parents. Eventually released from Darkseid’s “curse,” his true future remains to be seen.

Validus's Growth is a permanent part of his Strength and Damage Resistance levels; without it there are “merely” Incredible. Converted characters, most of the times, unavoidably exceeds the 45-point limitation that the ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying Game core book recommends. Character revised according to rules presented in ICONS Great Power book. Streamlined, once again, according to ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying: The Assembled Edition.
