Ammon-Ra is one of the Ogdoad, the first generation of beings worshiped as gods by the ancient Egyptians.

Legend has it that Ra created the Metamorphae in his never-ending battle against the serpent Apep. There have been several known Metamorphae throughout history including Ahk-Ton, Rex Mason, Urania Blackwell, Jillian Conway and the Roman centurion, Algon, The Ancient Element Man.

In 1955, he empowered the sorcerer Doctor Fate, so he could defeat the ancient mummy known as Khalis.[1]

In more recent years, Ammon-Ra was summoned at the behest of Urania Blackwell, who begged him to end her immortal existence. Ammon-Ra granted her wish, and Urania was turned to powder.[2]
