Val Armorr is the Karate Kid, the 31st Century's finest martial artist.

Val Armorr has never known his parents. He was raised by various martial arts teachers who trained him since his birth. He has taught the other members of the Legion of Super-Heroes various self-defence techniques. He's also training Ultra Boy how to better control his powers.[1] He has dated Shadow Lass, but they broke up. However, they seem to be quite good friends anyway.



  • Karate Kid stood as the Legion's calm, spiritual center. He attempted romances with teammates Shadow Lass (see Umbra) and Phantom Girl (see Apparition), and helped other Legionaries master their natural abilities.[2]
  • Karate Kid has trained and sparred with Ultra Boy a number of times, in order to help him get his powers under control.
  • Just like the first Karate Kid, this Karate Kid has also fought Batman to a draw.[3]
