Virman Vundabar was a key member of Darkseid's Elite. He models his personality and schemes on Prussian military appearance and precision partly because of the Earth-based name assigned to him by Granny Goodness.
A resident of Apokolips, Virman is a minion of Granny Goodness, having grown up in her orphanages like many of Darkseid's soldiers. Like many of his associates, he is a nemesis of Mister Miracle. Virman has involved himself with many schemes to gain power, often involving many of Darkseid's lieutenants, such as Doctor Bedlam, Steppenwolf and Kanto.
Notably, when Darkseid went missing at the Source Wall, his inner circle turned to conspiring against each other. Vundabar allies himself with Granny Goodness. Darkseid returns from the Source Wall, but he is not in full control of his mind. Virman attempts to take advantage of this but Darkseid recovers enough to obliterate him with his Omega Beams. However, Darkseid resurrects him in and he is again seemingly loyal to Darkseid despite the skepticism of Granny Goodness.
