Xotar was one of the first villains ever faced by the Justice League of America. He was a highly intelligent supervillain from the year 11,960. After obtaining the diary of Snapper Carr, he learned that he successfully destroyed the Justice League after traveling to the past using one of his four most powerful weapons. The diary was damaged however so he had to fight the Justice League in small groups until he could determine which weapon defeated them. His first battle was against the Flash at a missile base. Xotar used a shrink ray which he called a microscopitor. Flash used his size to sneak inside the giant robot body Xotar used, destroyed the microscopitor and returned to normal size. Xotar then attacked the Panama Canal and battled Aquaman and the Martian Manhunter. Xotar used his de-evoluionizer and appeared to destroy the Martian Manhunter, though he actually turned invisible and destroyed the de-evolutionizer as Aquaman distracted him. He then battled Wonder Woman, Batman, and Green Lantern at Mount Rushmore. Xotar used his Magneto-Bubble weapon, which traps people in magnetic bubbles that are pulled towards the sun. Green Lantern managed to break the bubbles with his power ring, and Wonder Woman snatched the machine with her lasso. He then battled all of the Justice Leaguers with his Illusion-Maker weapon that would trick them into destroying each other. Superman's special vision allowed him to see past it and destroy the fourth weapon. Xotar was then taken back to the future and turned over to the law enforcement. As it turned out the diary Xotar read actually told of his defeat, but was so damaged it looked like it said he won the fight.
