Roughly 50,000 years ago, Vandal Savage was a member of the Blood People, a tribe of Cro-Magnons. The young Vandal saw his father, the chieftain Vandar Adg, murdered by Rip Hunter, a time traveller from the 20th century. Hunter knew that Vandal Savage would become immortal and found the Illuminati, a secret society that would menace the Earth of his own time. Hunter killed Vandal Savage's father, thinking him to be Vandal Savage himself. But shortly afterward, Hunter realized his mistake: The chieftain's son would take the name Vandar Adg after his father's death and would succeed him as leader of the tribe. It was the son who would become Vandal Savage, master of the Illuminati.
Later, a strange fiery meteor fell from the sky and seemingly burst into flaming gases over the younger Vandar Adg's head. Vandar Adg collapsed and fell into a deep coma, from which he eventually awakened. As time passed, Vandar Adg realized that he had become immortal, for others around him grew old and died while he did not.
The man who became known as Vandal Savage embarked on a quest for power that has lasted throughout the millennia. Savage has spent centuries securing power, mostly from behind the scenes.
