He possessed the ability to telepathically decipher if others were telling the truth, his efforts manifesting as pink intangible tendrils of energy. The extent of his abilities is unknown.


(Inhumans III#6) - Queen Medusa had Veritus accompany her to the cell of Maximus the Mad after Attilan was attacked by Portuguese mercenaries. Medusa questioned whether Maximus had any true knowledge of this affront, and Veritus used his powers to decipher whether Maximus' words were truth. Pushing past Maximus' telepathic barrier, Veritus determined that, due to Maximus' mental illness, everything Maximus said he believed was truth.
