Origin and early years
Kull was enslaved by Lemurian pirates and forced to work as a gladiator, where he faced a Wolf Man, and forging an alliance with.
King of Valusia
The deities who later became known as the Elder Gods of the Hyborian Age intended to make King Kull of Valusia the vessel of their power, but chose instead to make the immortal cat, Sedrick (felinized by the dark sorcerer Thulsa Doom) the container of their power.
For this, Kull slew Thulsa Doom. Varnae, who served in the Cult of the Darkholders under Thulsa Doom, became injured during the battle. On the verge of dying, Varnae was transformed into the first vampire by sorcerers of Atlantis by using the Darkhold.
The Serpent People, nonhuman but humanoid offspring of Set, also became enemies of Kull because he was the renowned slayer of Thulsa Doom. They were later exterminated with Kull's help.
King Kull did not possess any known superhuman powers/abilities, however, during his time spent as a gladiator, pirate, assassin, and king, he engaged in intensive and extensive regular exercise. This imbued Kull with peak human attributes of strength, speed, stamina, durability, agility, and reflexes.
King Kull was an excellent all-around armed and unarmed combatant, extensively trained in the warfare of the Thurian Age. Kull was also highly intelligent and prone to lose himself in philosophical contemplation.
Peak Human: King Kull possessed the strength of a man of his unusual (at the time) size/build who engaged in intensive and extensive regular exercise. Kull was a feral child growing up, effectively removing the mental blocks most other humans place on physical might. This combined with his naturally athletic and strong build, as well as his years of training, granted him near superhuman strength.
