An indispensable breed of xenobiological life-form rarely found on Earth according to Brainy, the Vertuallarians are a psychic breed of symbiotic alien which compel those whom they attach themselves to commit acts of uninhibited veracity and to this effect, they are often slated as the "Truth Seekers" due to people being unable to lie while latched onto a host. Even infants have a profound honesty inducing effect on the most strong-willed minds, such as in the case of the Luthor family.
Months later, Lena asked her adoptive mother Lillian to help her find a way to extract the Harun-El from a human body and bonded her to a baby Vertullarian to force her to tell her only the truth, thus prompting the latter to admit that she loved Lena.

- Rip Roar suit: While Russell Rogers was wearing this suit given to him by Leviathan, he was immune to a truth-seeker's influence.
