Origin

Before the dawn of recorded time two Cro-Magnon tribesmen, Klarn and Vandar Adg were exposed to a meteorite which bathed them in extraterrestrial radiation.


Becoming immortal Vandar Adg was free to exercise his dark desires for an eternity. Although Klarn would die he would return reincarnated for an eternity as Adg's arch-nemesis Immortal Man.


Not content to merely watch civilization progress with the passing of the ages Vandar Adg desired to shape the world to his own twisted purposes.


Discovering the technically advanced civilization of Atlantis, he built allies with others who sought power and wealth, desiring to rebuild the city in his own image. This ruling circle became known as the Illuminati.


Through the ages Adg would overtly control many civilizations as a pharaoh or Caesar, often he would work behind the scenes controlling the throne as an advisor. Other times he would manipulate foreign realms through the pervasive influence of the Illuminati.


In the modern era Adg has been challenged by super-powered heroes, which has forced him to take more direct control of his desires for conquest, adopting a name that pays homage to his ancient origins as Vandal Savage.
