To some, living forever means seeing the world change and evolve, observing the growth of humanity throughout time, and gaining an appreciation for life. For Vandal Savage, immortality means achieving power by plotting the downfall of humankind to advance his own self-interests—and that makes him one of the most dangerous beings on Earth.
Born before recorded history, Vandal Savage encountered a radioactive meteorite that granted him enhanced speed, strength and agility, increased his intelligence beyond the capabilities of the average human—and gifted him immortality. For 50,000 years, Savage roamed and attempted to rule the Earth, claiming direct involvement in some of history's most notorious moments, from the rise and fall of the Roman Empire to the gruesome murders committed by Jack the Ripper.
With the rise of super heroes, Savage found a new challenge, a new obstacle in what he perceived as his rightful place as the ruler of Earth. From the Justice Society of America to the Justice League to many of his fellow super-villains, Savage will face down and eliminate anyone who poses a threat to his supremacy—and has thousands of years of experience and planning to pull it off.
Along with his enhanced physical abilities, Savage's intelligence makes him an almost-unparalleled tactician and strategist. Savage's immortality not only grants him the ability to survive just about anything, but also has allowed him to amass incredible wealth, resources, knowledge and experience. Without question, Savage ranks as one of the most dangerous beings on Earth...past, present or future.
