A member of the long-lived and technologically sophisticated race whose unpronounceable name is generally translated into Interlac as Gil'dispan, Zymyr dissented from the official policy of gentle co-existence with sentient beings of races unsuitable for survival on the high-pressure worlds Gil'dispan dwelt on. Zymyr believed that such lesser creatures were suitable for the amusement of his fellow master beings, and committed what were decreed to be crimes in experimenting on humans.
As a result, Zymyr was expelled from the company of his fellow beings. He took comfort in continuing his experiments with the equipment he had been permitted to bring with him. At some point, Zymyr was recruited into the company of the Legion of Super-Villains, who wanted the use of his teleporting power.
