Ultra Boy gained his powers when the vehicle he was flying through outer space was swallowed by an ultra-energy beast a "space whale"exposing him to radiation while inside. His real name is derived from the biblical figure Jonah who also survived being swallowed by a "large fish" often interpreted to be a whale. Ultra Boy first appeared in Superboy 98in which he was sent back in time to Superboy's home town of Smallville to prove himself Ultraboy - Athziry - Life of joining the Legion by learning Superboy's secret identity.
In his first adventure he only demonstrated his vision powers, known as "penetra-vision". It was implied he had malicious intentions in learning Superboy's secret identity. Later, in Adventure Comicshe explained that he could channel his ultra-energy to provide him other powers, though only one at a time. Later he was romantically linked for many years with fellow Legionnaire Phantom Girl.
He was considered one of the Legion's 'big 3' along with Superboy and Mon-El and served two terms as leader. The names of his parents are Crav and Mytra Nah. Ultra Boy is a skilled actor; this, combined with his rough background on Rimbor and social standing, helps him infiltrate criminal groups when Sigøynerblod - Jan Eggum - Underveis appears to "go bad".
This skill also makes him a valuable member of the Legion Espionage Squad; he is the only member without overt "spy" powers. Between volumes 3 and 4 Ni Contigo Ni Sintigui - Manzanita - Sus Tres Primeros Albumes En CBS (1978-1981) the Legiona five-year gap in the chronology occurred, during which the team disbanded.
During this period Ultra Boy proposed to Phantom Girlbut she was apparently killed in an accident. Now known simply as Jo Nah, he had become a smuggler and an outlaw on his homeworld of Rimbor. He rejoined the Legion after assassins destroyed an entire apartment building trying to kill him. A later storyline in the Volume 4 Legion Annual 1 showed his acting skills. It was shown that for years Ultra Boy had played "dumber" than he was, to not give away any advantage to his foes.
When the time sorceress Glorith began manipulating Legion history, she figured only the smarter legionnaires might notice her manipulations, and thus acted to neutralize ones like Brainiac 5. She never suspected Ultra Boy would figure out her plan, which involved provoking a battle between the Legion and Mordru at the zenith of his power, which would destroy or weaken both, allowing her to pick up the pieces.
Realizing what this would mean, Ultra Boy first in a fake diplomatic blunder prevented the Legion from attacking Mordru, then, in disguise, visited Mordru and instead provoked him into attacking Glorith.
This proved successful, leaving both Mordru and Glorith severely weakened. Years later Glorith finally figured out who was responsible and in revenge sent Phantom Girl into the past, leaving Ultra Boy believing her dead.
Later still the Legion found themselves on the wrong side of the law and Ultra Boy adopted a new identity as Emerald Dragon. A few years later, the members of the Dominators' highly classified "Batch SW6" escaped captivity.
Originally, Batch SW6 appeared to Ultraboy - Athziry - Life a group of teenage Legionnaire clones, created from samples apparently taken just prior to Ferro Lad 's death at the hands of the Sun-Eater. Later, they were revealed to be time-paradox duplicates, every bit as legitimate as their older counterparts.
After Earth was destroyed in a disaster reminiscent of the destruction of Krypton over a millennium earlier,  a few dozen surviving cities and their inhabitants reconstituted their world as New Earth. In the continuity that follows the " Zero Hour " storyline, Ultra Boy background is very similar to the original. He was a gang leader on Rimbor running a gang called the Emerald Dragons, a reference to his Five Years Later identitybefore being eaten by an Ultra Energy Beast and gaining his powers from eating the creature's flesh.
He initially does not join the Legion but instead joins a rival group called the Workforceand is briefly romantically linked to Spider Girl Sussa Paka before meeting and falling in love with Apparitionthe post-Zero Hour incarnation of Phantom Girl, when the Workforce and Ultraboy - Athziry - Life are stranded on Planet Hell, a prison complex located inside the sun. Eventually Ultra Boy leaves the Workforce and becomes a member of the Legion.
Ultra Boy and Apparition eventually marry and have a son named Cub, just before the Legion's reality was rebooted for the second time. The Legion was rebooted again in Ultra Boy in this version seems much the same as his previous versions but does not have a romantic link with Phantom Girl; he is in a relationship with Shadow Lass.
Trained by Karate Kid in a more responsible and tactical use of his superpowers, it's known by at least Triplicate Girl that on Rimbor, "he is charged for a crime he never committed", but refuses to say more on the question. He is later cleared of this crime revealed to be Vehicular Homicide when Legion business manager M'rissy discovered evidence that led to his innocence. This however leads to a brief affair with the Titanian girl. Ultra Boy is included in their number.
This Wreckage - Gary Numan - Newman Numan Boy's source of power comes from exposure of the radiation inside the Ultra-Energy Beast, and is not dependent on yellow-sun radiation.
In the Volume Ultraboy - Athziry - Life Legion Annual 1, his power is described as his body having absorbed the "ultra-radiation", which then adapted to an invulnerable state a default position.
When he shifts the energy Various - Winter 91 (VHS) his muscles, it increases his strength, or optical powers if he concentrates the energy on his eyes. Ultra Boy has the powers of superhuman strength, flight, penetra-vision similar to Superboy 's x-ray visionexcept penetra-vision allows him to see through leadflash vision similar to heat visioninvulnerability, and ultra-speed, although he has never been shown having super hearing.
All of these abilities seem to be at Kryptonian power levels. Whereas Superman's Push The Limits - Enigma - The Platinum Collection vision is Ultraboy - Athziry - Life depicted as Ultraboy - Athziry - Life beams, Ultra Boy's flash vision is usually at least in Silver Age adventures depicted as blue beams. Ultra Boy's principal weakness is that he can only use one power at a time, i.
This makes him open to sudden attacks if he is unable to shift from one power to another in time. He cannot use his ultra speed to break the "time barrier" since the stress would destroy his body. He is also vulnerable to "X-radiation", which affects him much as kryptonite harms Kryptonians. Along with the skills mentioned above, he has twice been elected as leader of the Legion, and has served several terms as deputy leader. It allows him to fly and protects him from the vacuum of space and other dangerous environments.
With his Legion flight ring or earlier flight belt he can use another power while flying. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about the DC Comics teenage superhero.
