Baal is one of the Primordial Gods, created by the Drylon over five billion years ago. Nothing else is known about him, since he has cut contacts with the rest of the pantheons.
Reality warping: Baal can manipulate matter and energy at a galactic scale, take any form and size he desired, is completely invulnerable, and can teleport anywhere in the universe instantly. He may even be able to warp the laws of physics.
