Rond Vidar was the son of Universo and the only person with natural immunity to Universo's hypnotism, Rond has aided the Legion of Super-Heroes on many different occasions and been granted honorary Legion membership.

He proved to be a genius with his research of time-travel and time-manipulation theory. At an early age, he developed the Time Cube, a device which could transport matter through the Timestream. The Time Cube would prove indispensable to the Legion, who used it to stop Rond's father, Universo, from taking over the world.

Soon the Legion made Rond an honorary member and he continued his research, collaborating on many experiments with Brainiac 5. While instrumental in many temporal advances, including the creation of the Time Beacon, Rond's experiments did have a disastrous outcome when his friend, Professor Jaxon Rugarth, was locked into a time loop, changing him into the Infinite Man.

At some point in Rond's career, the Guardians of the Universe recruited him to be a covert member of the Green Lantern Corps. Since Green Lanterns were banned on Earth at the time, Rond kept this a secret, not even telling his friends in the Legion.

Considering his son (the only other person immune to his powers of hypnotism) a threat to his plans, Universo eventually "killed" Rond.[1] Rond, however, survived the attack but chose to allow the rest of the world to believe he was dead, allowing him to work better undercover.

Rond's survival (and secret identity) was ultimately revealed,[2] when he helped save Brainiac 5, Saturn Girl, Duo Damsel and Mon-El during a confrontation with the Time Trapper to avenge the death of Superboy.

During the battle, Rond was revealed to be a Green Lantern, and due to Earth's ban on Green Lanterns, he left the planet and never returned.


In the altered future of the Glorithverse, Rond hooked up with Laurel Gand, with whom he had a daughter. While attempting to rescue Mysa Nal, the former White Witch, from the clutches of Mordru, Rond was captured and tortured. It was his eventual rescue that signaled the return of the Legion to active duty after the events of Black Dawn.

Rond helped the Legion of Super-Heroes in their war against the Legion of Super-Villains but was killed by Superboy-Prime who wanted the ring for Rond's father, Universo. Rond defiantly stated that his father would never have the ring and spit in his face before his death. His ring flew off into space looking for a new bearer but was lost without Mogo to direct it and it returned to Oa where it powered down for good.

Legion of Three Worlds

After Infinite Crisis reformed the Multiverse, one version of Earth's future had adult versions of the Legion of Superheroes. In this dimension, Rond was the last active Green Lantern. He was killed by Superboy Prime, who was pulled into the future by the Time Trapper. Mon-El and other Legion members followed Rond's ring back to Oa to find that Sodam Yat was still alive. They used Rond's death to convince Sodam to take action against Superboy Prime. This was the first time he would enter battle in hundreds of years.
