First Appearance


Anthony Ives (New Earth) 002

Ivo as he appeared when he first created Amazo

Ivo first appeared menacing the JLA through his creation, Amazo. He used the android to steal various creatures to produce an immortality elixir. He has since relinquished the immortality serum so he can finally die but cannot unless someone takes his place among the 13 immortals who walk the planet.

During Brightest Day, Professor Ivo acted on behalf of the resurrected Maxwell Lord in his successful bid to take over Checkmate. Under Lord's mental control, Ivo built OMAC Prime, a powerful android incorporating technologies from his own Amazo (including power replication), the Metal Men (adaptability and creativity), the previous OMAC Project androids, Kryptonian technology, Blue Beetle's armor, and more. The reunited Justice League International defeated OMAC Prime and temporarily thwarted Lord. Lord managed to escape, however, leaving Ivo to bear the blame for the global outbreak of OMAC attacks.[1]

Ivo had also evidently either returned to using his immortality serum or his disease symptoms had otherwise resurfaced; his skin was once again covered in scabrous scales.

  • As a result of his illnesses, he experiences tremendous amounts of pain on a daily basis. Unless he can find someone to take his place among the 13 immortals, he is doomed to live an eternal life even without the serum.




  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985-86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
