History and Powers
Nothing is known about the background of Empyrean except that at some point in his life he modified his own body's genetic structure to grant him "human perfection" in terms of physique. Empyrean is a brilliant geneticist who continues to tweak his own body's abilities, temporarily granting him various superhuman powers as desired. Empyrean has often offered his skills to various criminal organizations to help them create superhuman agents, and was responsible for the creation of Tarantula and Brawl, amongst others (see individual entries). But beyond assisting other organizations, Empyrean will pursue his own goals of expanding his scientific knowledge and power.
Empyrean is arrogant and narcissistic, often dressing to emphasize his physique and Adonis-like appearance. In combat he frequently wields a gas-spewing weapon of his own design that created unstable and unhelpful mutations in others. He is often accompanied by one or more beautiful female bodyguards possessing tremendous power named Crimson, Cobalt, and Viridian (see next entry).
