The Monitor spent his early life learning the secrets of the universe. Sensing his enemy's existence, they engaged in a million year war - ending in a draw, with both rendered imobile and unconcious. They remained that way for nine billion years, until the dawn of the Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Building a ship, the Monitor scoured the Earths for heroes he would need for his ultimate confrontation with the Anti-Monitor. He raised Harbinger from a child to serve as his assistant. Together, they gathered data on the Multiverse.
As anti-matter swept across the Multiverse, the Monitor grew weaker as each positive matter universe was destroyed.
The Monitor was killed by an Anti-Monitor controlled Harbinger, his powers being transferred to her - part of his plan to save the remaining universes.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
- Monitor's powers were never well defined, but he was able to sense his counterpart's existence in the Anti-Matter Universe and fight with him from Oa's moon using energy powers (though the feedback of the attack placed him in suspended animation for eons).
- He was able to save Pariah (and possibly empower him to never die and be always drawn to where the Anti-Monitor was about to strike next) and create an entire satellite headquarters out of nothingness.
- Apparently, he could not create the protective netherverse without dying first, although this may have been because he did not have the time to come up with a less lethal plan.
- As a Monitor he can, as told by Metron "Create with a thought".
Genius-level intellect: Monitor is extremely intelligent, almost omniscient.
The Monitor level of power depend in the number of positive matter universes. If the number reduces, his powers will also reduce.
- This version of Monitor (Pre-Crisis), including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the Multiverse in the 1985-86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series and is now considered apocryphal.
