HistoryEdit

Vishnu is a member of the Devas, an extra-dimensional race of beings worshipped as gods by the people in the Indian subcontinent.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Powers

Vishnu possesses greater than normal powers than any other Hindu god. Equal to Brahma or Shiva, he has superhuman strength (Class 100+), stamina, and resistance to harm plus considerable power to manipulate energies on cosmic scales. In ancient times, he could send his mind and body through various successive mortal incarnations known as avatars. He also tends to travel by means of two mounts, Garuda the bird god, or by Vasuki, the cobra-god, son of Vritra.
