Veeda Leebre has been shown to have the ability to traverse space unaided and to create space warps into hyper-space. He has also been shown to have matter manipulation powers on a planetary scale at least, and has the ability to 'resurrect' a large number of dead people (over 2 billion, and who had been dead for almost three weeks when resurrected) in an instant and return them back to their regular lives minus the memories of how they died. He can also radically change his appearance from a humanoid form to a more alien-looking form. In fact, the two forms shown on this page may not be his true form at all. While the exact limits of Veeda Leebre's powers are unknown; he was apparently able to hold his own against the Godstalker when he came for him. The nature of his abilities are unknown
The origins of Veeda Leebre are unrevealed. The only thing known for sure about him was that he was at least many many thousands of years old and had presided over Carmondy IV for a few thousand of their local years. (See comments below for some theories on his origin.)
The Godstalker came to Carmondy IV for Veeda Leebre.
Veeda Leebre and the Godstalker fought. Leebre lost and was taken prisoner. The Carmondians then committed mass suicide.
The lone survivor of the suicide, a woman named Jara, went to the planet Calculex to convince Captain Marvel to find the Godstalker and avenge the deaths of the Carmondians. Genis found the Godstalker at his base, the Desecration Annex, and battled him there. Genis convinced the Godstalker to free Veeda Leebre by threatening to release several of his prisoners at once. Once released Leebre returned to Carmondy IV and saw firsthand the deaths his forced absence had wrought.
Right before Captain Marvel left Carmondy IV he witnessed a planet-wide flash of light that instantly restored the dead Carmondians back to life and back to the lives they had previously lived before their 'spiritual cleansing', minus any memories of the Godstalker's attack and their subsequent mass suicide. They were also given more 'perfect' idealized bodies. Genis immediately realized what Veeda Leebre had done to the people and tried to undo it by convincing the Carmondians they were really still dead. After several days of trying, including unsuccessful attempts at convincing Jara (whose memories had also been altered), a priest, and a group of young children, Genis went and confronted Leebre himself about what he has done. Leebre admitted that the reason he restored the Carmondians was because of his vanity and his guilt over causing their deaths. Genis then revealed that Jara had listened in on their conversation and brought her out of hiding in the Negative Zone to confront Leebre herself. Jara forgave Leebre for the suicides, saying it was the Carmondians' own fault for preferring to believe in Leebre far more than they believed in themselves. With Jara's belief in him gone Leebre allowed the resurrected Carmondians to die and rest in peace again. And watched without interfering as Jara chose to follow her people into death by killing herself with a knife to the heart.
