Like all Viltrumites, Oliver possesses vast superhuman strength, speed, durability, stamina and flight. His body is capable of resisting intense impacts, high calibre gun fire, and extremes in temperature with no outward sign of damage or discomfort. He could survive for days on a single lungful of air, and in the unusual event that he get injured, he will heal the damage at a superhuman rate. He can move his entire body and fly at fantastic speeds. He can reach even greater speeds in the vacuum of space. Oliver also enjoys the extended lifespan afforded to him by his Viltrumite heritage. Though he won’t live as long as a pure blooded Viltrumite, he will enjoy a lifespan that extends for centuries, if not millennia. Oliver’s Thraxxan heritage has manifested itself as a form of eidetic memory and the ability to adapt to and learn new concepts and skills at a vastly accelerated rate. Oliver’s rate of learning and comprehension of new concepts is so rapid that in most cases it appears to be instantaneous, or savant-like.
The average member of the Thraxxan race has a lifespan of nine Earth months. They grow from hatchling to adulthood within days, and all aspects of their life occurs at a highly accelerated rate. For the first 12 months of his life, Oliver experienced this rapid maturation, and grew from an infant to a preteen within that time. His Viltrumite DNA stubbornly asserted itself soon thereafter. It has slowed the rate at which he ages to that of a homo sapien. With this in mind, it has been estimated that Oliver will not experience the virtual immortality of the average Viltrumite lifespan, but rather will only live for a handful of centuries. Presumably, Oliver shares the same vulnerabilities that affect all Viltrumites including the bioengineered Scourge Virus (which decimated the Viltrumite race) and an unusual allergy to the Klaxus plant.
The planet Thraxxa was first discovered by the Viltrumite Nolan, AKA Omni-Man. He found it a few weeks after abandoning his post on the planet Earth. Upon his arrival, he discovered that it was inhabited by a native race of aliens who called themselves Thraxxans. The Thraxxan’s were a mantis-like people that possessed a rare genetic quirk. They aged from birth to maturity to death within nine months. Their hierarchy was based on age and the eldest being on the planet ruled over all. Upon his arrival, Nolan Grayson was quickly made ruler of their world. After a period of adjustment he took a native Thraxxan named Andressa as his wife. Their union produced a son who would eventually be named Oliver.
