Infinity-Man was a man named Astorr, a powerful warrior from another planet. Astorr came across Drax (Darkseid's brother) who was horribly burnt. After nursing Drax back to health, he died from old age. Before he died, Astorr was able to pass the role of Infinity-Man to Drax. It took Drax years of study before he was ready to assume the title of Infinity-Man. Drax (Infinity-Man) eventually came to serve Highfather on New Genesis, where he was acquainted with The Forever People and became a protector. Whenever Infinity-Man was needed, all the Forever People would touch the mother boxes and recite the word Taaru, thus tossing them into limbo until Infinity-Man returned the power to them.
Darkseid saw Infinity-Man as a threat and figured out a way to place him in another dimension, where Infinity-Man made a planet called Adon his home. The Forever People were able to free him from this prison. Devilance the Pursuer had a personal vendetta against the Forever People and especially the Infinity-Man. Devilance tracked down Infinity-Man and the two battled, which resulted in the island they were fighting on exploding. The two appeared to die, but Infinity-Man returned due to the effort of the Forever People and Maya to defeat Darkseid.
Death of the New Gods
Infinity Man is suspected by Superman, Mr. Miracle, and Orion to be the mystery killer behind the recent deaths of the New Gods. However, the Mother Box used to summon him appears to have been destroyed and the Forever People murdered. Later it is revealed that Infinity-Man is, in fact, the killer of New Gods. He had been posing as Himon to avoid detection. Gog challenged him to battle as a "false god", but after defeating him, Infinity Man teleported away. His motive in killing the New Gods remains unclear, however he claims to be acting on behalf of the Source itself, revealed as the "good" half of an entity that previously encompassed the Source and the Anti-Life Equation, and his killing were aimed to reunite both aspects.
The "Source" itself, or at least the physical representation of it, appears to back his claims, leading Infinity-Man to battle Mister Miracle, now empowered with the Anti-Life Equation itself, near the Source Wall. Infinity-Man then pushes Mister Miracle into battle, duping him to blast away the Second Wall, and letting the Source and the Anti-Life reunite. Infinity-Man is seemingly destroyed by Mister Miracle's attack.
