Imperiex is a powerful warlord from the 41st Century. He can fly, is stronger than Superman and is, for the most part, virtually indestructible. The only time that he is vulnerable to few, if any head-on attacks is when he uses a cannon mounted in his chest, which is also his most powerful weapon, but even using that weakness against him only succeeds in defeating him for a few minutes. In addition, he has extendable claws and he wields a pair of powerful swords that can fire out waves of energy. He is also
exceptionally intelligent and cunning. Imperiex was originally an alien slave from the planet Apokolips raised in a gladiator lifestyle. In a flashback he was seen being whipped by Granny Goodness. Over time his body was modified by technology that was created by a scientist named Abel, that allowed a perfect union of organic tissue with cybernetics, until nothing remained of his original self.
