THE VILTRUMITE EMPIRE
Extremely powerful by human standards, the alien Viltrumite race are a brutal, vicious race. They have achieved what they call a "utopia" by culling the weak from their own numbers, leaving a race of conquerors bent on bringing new worlds under their control and subjugating weaker civilizations. Viltrum is a beautiful world ruled by a race of cruel beings with godlike powers of flight, invulnerability, super strength, and superspeed as well as additional random superpowers. Once rich in resources, the natural wealth of Viltrum has long been depleted, forcing them into a march for empire. They dominate Viltrum and every other habitable planet within a hundred light years of their homeworld and are extremely technically advanced. Viltrumites age very slowly as well, living for thousands of years.
The Viltrumites' physical power and near-immortality has strongly influenced their society, creating a species-wide superiority complex and the sense that they are destined to rule lesser beings (ie everyone but Viltrumites). After a brutal civil war in which the eugenics minded Viltrumites won, they rebuilt their world and set their sights on building a galactic empire. When they conquered worlds, the pattern was always the same: a planet targeted for assimilation would be offered a chance to willingly join their empire in exchange for Viltrumite technology and patronage. Those that refused were destroyed by armies of flying supermen. However, with a limited population the Viltrumite Empire is stretched dangerously thin at around 1,000 conquered worlds. Now, the Viltrumites just seek to hold what they have, especially in the face of an expansive and aggressive Atorian Empire lying nearby. Viltrumites can transverse the galaxy under their own power, without the need of spaceships. Almost at all Viltrumites are meglomaniacal powermongers.
