|Base:||Vega star system|
The Psions were an alien race of of humanoid lizards that lived somewhere near the Vega star system. They were originally a non-sentient species from the planet Maltus, where they were experimented on by the Maltusians, whose experiments gave them intelligence. Eventually the Maltusians left Maltus and the Psions behind, but the Psions located their technology and used it to build spacecraft of their own and leave for a new world.
The Psions are well known for being scientists of an immoral nature, often times using sentient lifeforms as their lab rats, even if it results in their deaths. Their main interest is in the advancement of science, no matter who they have to kill to get it.
A couple Psions helped the Dealmaker with a scientific process to convert humans into food to make him immortal. Among the humans about to be converted into food was Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, Rick Wolfman and Wilkerson. The Psions would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for Superman.
