A thousand years ago, the inhabitants of the planet Altora created the Altored as a power source. However, they decided it was too powerful and too dangerous, as it would kill anyone who makes direct contact with it. As a result, they had to get rid of it. Delphia, a lowly janitor (and later a Super Sickbay employee), was on the ship whose mission was to dispose of the Altored. However, as a result of his carelessness, the ship carrying it crashed into the earth, causing it to be lost.
Story (Super Sickbay)
During construction centuries later at Ganlo High School, they finally unearthed the memory drive that had been on the ship. Veriol accidentally touched a rock that had been in contact with it, and all the information about it was uploaded into his mind. However, Veriol mistook it for a dream.
The villain Master Horror, none other than Veriol's mother Gertrude was searching for the Altored as with it, she would be the most powerful villain in existence. However, villain activity rose, as they were drawn to the prospect of having absolute power.
The robotic agent, Principal Warren discovered this: however, he was defeated by the combined efforts of Veriol, Captain Electric, and Rylie before he could report back.
In the final hour of Super Sickbay Part 2, many villains were attracted to the power of the Altored, and relentlessly competed for it. Although the villains were caught, Gertrude got the upper hand with the help of Romt and absorbed its energy. Zak and Veriol attempted to stop her, but the energy killed Gertrude upon contact, and surged through Zak and Veriol as well. Morris saved Gertrude with his last remaining Lifuceo power, but it was too late. Gertrude still had the Altored's power in her. Gertrude absconded with the Altored, and was last seen flying into the skies of Philadelphia. Meanwhile, since Gertrude acted as a buffer between them and the Altored, Zak and Veriol discovered that the energy of the Altored gave them superpowers, due to them making indirect contact with it.
Science Guinea Pigs: Mighty Agency
Later, RJ found it in Zak's hoard of junk, and Zak and Veriol tried to use it to gain more powers. However, Bring took it from them to try and gain more powers herself, but Rylie blasted it and her Electrokinesis bounced off of the Altored and hit Bring, critically injuring her. Rylie acted as a buffer between Bring and the Altored and grabbed it, which not only healed Bring, but gave her super powers, however it was at the cost of some of Rylie's own powers. Rylie then took it to Vadenport's Facility Y for safekeeping, where it is currently located now.
- Catch usually refers to the Altored as a "magic space rock/pebble".
- It's later shown anyone can be tempted by the Altored's power, not just villains, as Veriol , Zak, and Bring were all tempted by the Altored to give themselves more powers.
- The Altored has been shown to give super powers to normos or cyborgs who make indirect contact with it, but take away powers from super people who make direct contact with it. It has also been shown to have healing capabilities.
- If a form of energy bounces off of the Altored and hits a normo or cyborg, it would have the same effects as if they had touched it (instant death), just with a slight delay, meaning they would die moments later at a slower pace.
