Ozymandias (Watchmen)
Real Name: Adrian Alexander Veidt
Search for 'Ozymandias (Watchmen)' on Amazon


Powers:
Peak human physical condition on the border to super-human. Known as the smartest man in the world.


Bio:
Adrian was a highly intelligent child. So intelligent that it made people suspicious of him. He therefore learned to hide his intelligence. At age 16 his parents died, leaving him enough money to be financially independent.

Adrian's idol was Alexander of Macedonia, who conquered most of the world before dying at age 33. Adrian decided to follow in his footsteps, taking the journey from Turkey around the world ending in Alexandria.

On the night before going back to America Adrian went out in the desert where he ate a lump of hashish. In a vision he saw the greatness of the pharaohs, and decided to recreate the greatness of the empire. Adrian took the name Ozymandias, the Greek name for Ramses II, and went into war against the evil that inhibit mankind.
