- I am Omega Man...I am the end!
- -- Omega Man src
The Omega Man was a powerful being who was actually traced to the actions of Alexander Luthor, Jr. when he went about his plans to restore the Multiverse. Part of his plans was installing a matter energy bomb on the Crime Syndicate of Amerika's alternate Earth with the intention of destroying it. Once it exploded, it sent a wave of dark energy that threatened to infect and kill everyone on that planet. However, the Syndicate managed to channel that energy in an attempt to send it to another world thus killing the alternate Earth. But this did not halt the spread of the dark energy which began killing and consuming the lives of millions of beings that became part of energy essence. In an effort to reverse this problem, the Syndicate traveled to New Earth where they intended to use technology pilfered from the New Gods combined with their own as well as the genius of Doctor Impossible to resurrect Alexander Luthor. While hiding on New Earth, Doctor Impossible created the Resurrection Machine that was capable of bringing back the dead. The arrival of Green Lantern from Earth-9 that the Syndicate killed with dark energy threatened their plans, in which Owlman along with Ultraman and Superwoman led an assault against the Justice League of America. During the confusion, Owlman stole Alexander Luthor's body and placed it within the Resurrection Machine. At that point, however, Doctor Impossible betrayed Owlman and sent his minion into the Resurrection Machine in order to restore Darkseid himself using one of his followers, Hunter, as a host. For reasons unknown, the dark energy coalesced into a single entity that became sentient and was known as the Omega Man. As Doctor Impossible's followers believed their lord had returned, they were shocked to see the demonic visage of the Omega Man who killed them while stating that he was not even close to Darkseid. He quickly introduced himself and stated that he was the end with a confused Doctor Impossible asking Hunter what he was doing as he had killed Tender Mercy and Neon Black. Omega Man was quick to reveal that he knew everything that the souls he had claimed knew and attempted to kill Doctor Impossible but the villain fled from the scene.
Afterwards, he battled Jade and attempted to spread his essence across the world but she used her own abilities to create a powerful protective dome to stop Omega Man from escaping. During the battle, he attacked Supergirl and claimed that he had a use for her where he forced her to fight him. As they fought, he said he could see the dark, bile and evil within her which he intended to unleash. By the end, Supergirl's costume turned dark and her dark persona was seemingly released as Dark Supergirl. Following this incident, Omega Man flew across the evacuated Washington, D.C. area as he attempted to come to terms of his own identity; given that he was made from a twisted amalgamation of thousands of souls. It was then that Donna Troy and Jade attacked him where he commented on how he was impressed with Jade's ability to contain his power. He then demanded to know where the people were as he intended to devour their souls. During Troy's battle with him, Omega Man severely wounded the Amazon and demanded once more from Jade to know where the people were. When they demanded what he would do, he simply declared "patience" and departed the scene while he visited the Smithsonian in order to collect his thoughts once more as well as identify who he actually was.
When he determined his next course of action, Omega Man decided to gain his freedom from the dome. This led him to ambush the Crime Syndicate and the Justice League as they were assembling a truce. He struck as Power Ring was trying to get Jade to return his mystical energies by impaling Power Ring on his staff. When Johnny Quick attacked, the Omega Man knocked the villain out with a powerful energy blast. Jade quickly used her powers against the Omega Man but was quickly overpowered. At that point, Ultraman and Dark Supergirl appeared; both seemingly had allied themselves with the Omega Man. With his two new allies, the Omega Man made an ultimatum to the Crime Syndicate and Justice League: his freedom from the protective dome in exchange for their lives. Afterwards, Batman knelt before the Omega Man and said he would serve him whereupon he worked on the Resurrection Machine in order to bring down the protective dome.
Just as the Omega Man drifted into his memories; Donna Troy battled Superwoman with both being knocked out by the Dark Supergirl. When this was happening, Owlman agreed to take part in the alliance with the Justice League so that the Omega Man could be defeated by Earth's superheroes whereupon his energies would be use to repair the damage done by the spreading dark energy. After the device was complete, Owlman betrayed the League and decided that Ultraman's decision was right; their world was dead now and they decided to back the Omega Man in conquering New Earth. With the time right, the Omega Man was ready to conquer the Multiverse when he commanded Owlman to activate the device. However, it was a trick made by Batman and his League as they rigged the device to sent the Omega Man and the Crime Syndicate into a portal through the Multiverse. They also had the Earth-9 Green Lantern to use her powers to resurrect Alexander Luthor for one final act of redemption. He rigged the device for a slingshot effect to various Earth's where the Omega Man's dark energy would be used in reverse and curing the planets from its infection as well as healing them.
