Quote1 I want to be the mightiest, the best. I want my exploits to be as strong as my love for you. Quote2
Salden src

The alien lawman Salden came to Earth, where he continued his exploits as Superman.

Salden was a Law Bringer on his home planet, notable for refusing genetic enhancements in favor of stopping crime with his pure brawn and ingenuity. His wife Lyella was murdered by escaped convict Gundor Gorrok, a criminal with a grudge Salden had arrested years earlier. Following the killer to Earth on a hijacked space-ship, Salden discovered that he had incredible powers due to the planet's lower gravity. Determining that he needed to take revenge and then return home to honor his wife's memory, he believed that stopping crime and working towards world peace would allow Earth to focus its efforts on a better space program. His talents were discovered by agent Lois Lane, who became his manager and publicist. She gave him the name Superman, and he adopted the alias Clark Kent as a human name. Gorrok was aided in seeking his revenge by Reverend Darrk of the Church of Eternal Empowerment. They threatened world war by kidnapping a Chinese dignitary and framing the United States government, although Superman was able to stop them and avert the crisis thereby gaining public recognition and respect.[1]

Powers

  • Alien Physiology: Salden's body is naturally adapted to the high gravity environment of his homeworld.
    • Superhuman Durability: Salden's bones and tissues are far denser than a human's, making him exceptionally resilient to damage.
    • Superhuman Speed: Salden's muscles are acclimated to working against much greater resistance than on Earth, allowing him to move at great speed.
    • Superhuman Strength: Salden possesses great strength in Earth's lower gravity.
      • Super-Leaping: Salden can leap great distances in Earth's lower gravity, in a similar manner to a human on the Moon.
