Search for 'Young Omni-Man' on Amazon
Thraxan/Viltrumite Physiology: Oliver is a Thraxan/Viltrumite hybrid and his Viltrumite heritage gives him access to many abilities as well as Thraxan ability. Oliver's purple skin was the result of a lower genetic incompatibility with Viltrumites than with Humans. Because of this, Oliver's potential to become stronger is lesser than Mark's as his Human half is more compatible with Viltrumites. Oliver is granted the following powers from both his parents. ◾ Dominant Genetics: Oliver developed his dominant genetics from his father, Nolan Grayson, hence why he has a more humanoid appearance than insectoid. An example being Oliver's purple skin fading away as he got older. Were Oliver to mate with an alien being with a different physiology than his own, they would likely inherit his traits more than the mother's species.
◾ Accelerated Learning: Because of his Thraxan heritage, Oliver was able learn concepts quicker than most others. This genetic trait was developed as a way to accommodate for the Thraxan short life span of 9 months. Oliver shows this when he received his powers more quickly than Mark(which took him about 17 years). Initially, Viltrumite powers don't surface until they close to adulthood. He was about a toddler when his Viltrumite powers began to surface. As Oliver gets older, He is capable of learning, analyzing, memorizing, understanding, and mastering limitless amounts of information, knowledge and skills and immediately utilizing them without effort. He can do this so quickly his special teacher couldn't keep up with his learning capabilities, and were more impressed by his massive intellect than his other abilities. With this ability, he can easily master languages in an hour or master a lifetimes worth of knowledge and academics within a few days.
◾ Superhuman Strength: Due to his Viltrumite heritage, Oliver is granted strength beyond Human levels, whose upper limits are unknown as Viltrumite. He was able to easily kill the Mauler twins. He has the potential to become stronger, but not as much potential as Mark due to his mother's Thraxan heritage not being as compatible as humans
◾ Superhuman Endurance: Due to his Viltrumite heritage, Oliver is granted endurance beyond Human levels, nearly limitless. He was able to survive dismemberment and having his jaw broken by Thragg.
◾ Superhuman Speed: Due to his Viltrumite heritage, Oliver has speed beyond Human levels. His exact speed level is unknown, but definitely faster than sound. His senses are also enhanced, which allows him to observe more and as well as perceive reality at high speeds.
◾ Invulnerability: Due to his Viltrumite heritage, there are not many objects that can pierce Oliver's skin. Only beings of stronger or comparable strength can do damage to Oliver.
◾ Flight:Due a complex balancing system located in their inner ears, Viltrumites have the ability to fly.
◾ Limited Self-Sustenance:Due to his Thraxan heritage, Oliver doesn't need as much sleep as a normal human would.
◾ Interstellar Travel: Oliver can survive and function in outer space without aid.
◾ Enhanced Healing Factor: Due to genes he has inherited from both of his parents, Oliver can heal from injuries much faster than humans. He was able to regenerate from the injuries he sustained during the Viltrumite War(broken jaw, dismembered arm) within a few weeks. His skin cells regenerated, and replaced his cybernetic parts, at first they grew over his new cybernetic parts and looks almost as if he doesn't have it.
◾ Decelerated Aging: Because of the genes he inherited from both of his parents, Oliver's aging process fluctuate depending on the time passed. Within each age cycle, his aging would be slowed down by his Viltrumite DNA. A Thraxan's lifespan is about 9 months while a Viltrumite can live for thousands of years. When he was about 2 months old, he had the appearance of 2 year old human. A couple of weeks after, he had the appearance of a 5 year old. Before he went to fight in the Viltrumite War, Oliver had already had the appearance of a teenager. Ten months away from Earth, Oliver has become an adult. After six months leaving Earth again, Oliver has the appearance of an adult male and bared similarity to an adult Mark. Nolan speculates that Oliver will likely live for centuries, if not thousands of years and still be in his prime.
Half brother of Mark Grayson (Invincible) they share the same father, Nolan Grayson (Omni-Man) but have different mothers.
