Validus was born to Lightning Lad and Saturn Girl, two of the founders of the Legion of Super-Heroes. Darkseid kidnapped Validus without his parents even becoming aware of his existence, mutated him into a monster, and sent him back in time 10 years. The mutated Validus remained a perpetual infant and became a galaxy-wide menace, and when he fell in the thrall of Tharok he joined the Fatal Five, becoming a deadly enemy of the Legion Of Super-Heroes.
