ABOUT THE CHARACTER
Mark Grayson was born to Nolan Grayson, a Viltrumite male, and Deborah Grayson, a human female. When Mark was seven years old, his dad told him that he was an alien from a different planet, and the superhero known as Omni-Man. Mark was told that the Viltrumites are virtually a race of peaceful Supermen. Mark learned that his father had come to Earth to protect it, and that one day Mark would develop superpowers like Nolan. Every single day, he waited for his powers to develop. One day in his senior year of high school, when working at his part time job, he sent a trash bag flying through the sky. Mark finally getting his powers. Nolan eventually had his friend Art make Mark a superhero costume, but Mark needed to choose a name first. After protecting a classmate from being bullied, he was sent to the principal’s office, who commended him, but warned him that he isn’t “invincible” or anything. Mark liked the name and used it for his superhero identity.
Nolan Grayson was an alien Viltrumite born on their planet Viltrum. His father, Argall, was the Viltrumites’ leader. When he was very young, his father was killed by a turncoat, who no longer believed in the Viltrumites’ violent ways. Nolan was too young to remember anything about his father. His true heritage was hidden from records in order to hide him from Viltrumite enemies. The Viltrumites were then organized into the Viltrum Empire, led by Thragg. In his youth, Nolan signed up to conquer planets for the empire, and he was so successful that he went on to command his own unit.
