Who is Xanatos?

Xanatos is an alien of unknown origin that arrived on Earth in the year 1901. He was sent to earth by the demi-god Galarius to see if the planet was suitable for destruction. Finding intelligent life on Earth, Xanatos decided to become a superhero and protect the planet until his master arrived to see planet Earth for himself.

In 1960 Galarius returned. He turned Xanatos on his newfound superhero friends, and set about destroying the planet. With the help of many allies Xanatos eventually defeated Galarius and sent the demi-god packing. He has not been seen since.

Since that day Xanatos has been a steadfast protector of planet earth. He has established such supergroups as The Defenders of Paragon, The Peacekeepers, and The Old Guard. He is able to control the element of ice, having shown great imagination and willpower with the ice constructs he uses to fight crime, and he is a highly skilled leader and military tactician. While old fashioned, possibly even golden age at heart, Xanatos is every bit a hero for the modern world. Not just because Paragon always needs heroes, not because he's been doing it that much longer than most, but because he is every bit a living legend.

Powers & Abilities

Xanatos is able to lower his body temperature without causing harm to himself, reaching minus 105°F within a few tenths of a second. He is able to freeze any moisture in the air around him into unusually hard ice to form ice-slides and various projectiles and shields. He can travel rapidly along these ice-slides or ice-bridges by causing ice to form rapidly beneath and behind his feet, pushing him along the slick surface. He is also able to summon moisture from the air and create a flood.

Xanatos is immune to sub-zero temperatures and has thermal vision: the ability to detect objects visually by how much heat the objects generate.

According to the laws of thermodynamics, cold is defined as the absence of heat. Therefore, Xanatos does not actually emanate cold, but rather absorbs and dispels heat. Since heat is a form of energy, Xanatos's power can be defined as a psionic ability to manipulate thermal energy by reducing the kinetic energy of atoms.

Through years of constant heroism, and an active involvement in several wars (both planetary and intergalactic) Xanatos has become something of a military tactician, with his fellow superheroes often following his orders in battle. A notable leader, heroes have been known to fight on despite their wounds when in his presence. He has an almost empathetic link to those that serve under him. Xanatos is incredibly skilled in hand-to-hand combat, often taking down foes whose strength, size, or superpowers greatly exceed his own.
