This is an in-universe article with out-of-universe material.
The lords of order and chaos chose an infant to wield both magics, acting as their mediator. His eternal duty was to ensure that the two forces remained equal by tipping the balance back should one force grow to strong. However this was an enormous burden to bare, he grew tired of the impossible task he had been given and set out to keep the balance in his own way.
Equinox’s first appearance is in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode "Mystery in Space!" where he captured Gorilla Grodd because his plans, as Equinox put it, "...would disturb the equilibrium." Equinox also captured The Question who, like Equinox, was trying to stop Gorilla Grodd. The Question inquired his reason for doing so and in answering The Question's inquiry, Equinox stated, "To keep everything equal of course. If I eliminate the black pawn a white one must go too. It's an essential part of my quest to bring the world into complete balance." Equinox dangled the two over a fiery pit on a large weighing scale; The Question tied to one of the weighing pans and Gorilla Grodd to the other. Batman appeared and Equinox triggered the scale to lower his captives into the flames. Batman rescued The Question and in effect, correspondingly saved Gorilla Grodd's life as well, but did not cut his bonds. Equinox fled the scene as Batman and The Question gave chase. Batman caught up with Equinox and they quarreled, but Equinox escaped and exclaimed, "Don't worry Batman. When the time is right, you will again meet Equinox!"
Equinox made his second appearance in the episode "When OMAC Attacks." In this episode Equinox is constantly seen by Batman alone. Invisible to everyone else. Through out the episode he argues with Batman about order and balance, as well as his way of maintaining it. He also spends a great deal of time explaining to Batman all the massive effects his actions have on the world and its balance; linking Batmans actions to the theory: "The Butterfly Effect." He even stated the theory to Batman and asked him, "Ever wonder what impact your little bat wings have on this world?" He is also constantly seen in the background of Shrapnels attack and mayhem, secretly helping using his magical influence. All of which appears as accidents or coincidences; such OMAC system errors or loss of connection with Brother Eye. He is helping Shrapnel, who in this episode is a Cuban General named Kafka, get revenge for the GPA (Global Peace Agency) sending OMAC to stop his militias uprising. Omac destroyed most of Kafkas militia and village. Equinox sees the only way to balance this destruction by destroying the city where the GPA is located. After Batman foils the core meltdown at a nuclear power plant Equinox then saves Batman by healing all the wounds he sustained while being inside the nuclear core, and stating his death would unbalance the scales.
Equinox made his third appearance in the episode, "The Fate of Equinox." In this episode Equinox is the primary villains and his origins are revealed. Batman and Dr. Fate attempt to stop Equinox from tampering with legendary Gyroscope that is supposed to maintain the magical balance of the world. He also subtly reveals the true nature of his powers and who he works for to Dr. Fate before blasting him. He gets into a struggle with Batman and deliberately loses to Batman as to meet his end, falling into the gyroscope itself. For it was later revealed only a being who represents both chaos and order can kill him. Soon after the Lords of Order and Chaos reveal Equinox's origins and purpose, Equinox emerges from the clouds, now the size of a giant, and possessing increase magical abilities; to the point he could drain the powers of order and chaos from the Lords and Vassals present in that domain. He then later returns, still the size of a giant, now being covered completely in gold (God Like) armor, covering everything but his face. He then begins to battle Batman, who has been changed into Bat Monolith, A combination powers including: Dr. Fate, Blue Beetle, Guy Gardner, and Aquaman. During the battle Equinox constantly states he is doing this for the Universe and not for personal reasons. He intends to erase the universe and start all over and begins building a enormous amount of energy to do so. But Batman makes Equinox realize that he is doing all of this because he hates the Lords of Order and Chaos. At that moment Equinox became confused, see that if he is doing all this for a personal vendetta, then he is not balanced himself, and is unworthy, saying he did all this for nothing. During his confusion Batman punched Equinox into the energy he had built up, and Equinox shattered, appearing to have been defeated.
- Magic: Control of the magics of Chaos and Order. His ability to manipulate the two forces allows him to bend the fabric of reality itself, but not on a massive scale. He can also manipulate probability, while making his influence seem coincidental. His powers would later be enhance upon his death, as now his spirit can use the full extent of the powers of Order and Chaos. His increased powers being strong enough to absorb all the powers of the lords of chaos and order, becoming god like.
