Mar Novu, also known as the Over-Monitor or simply the Monitor, was a being created by the Super Celestial Perpetua, the creator of the Multiverse, to monitor and nurture the universes of the Multiverse, and to halt any crisis that might destroy them.

He was created alongside his two brothers Alpheus and Mobius. The former created universes and the latter prevented the multiverse from being exposed to the greater omniverse.

Early Existence

Mar Novu was created by a Super Celestial named Perpetua in the Sixth Dimension alongside his brothers Mobius and Alpheus. Perpetua had been sent from the greater Omniverse to build a new Multiverse, and the three brothers were its first inhabitants. Perpetua explained to the three children that her Multiverse comprised of three main realms made out of the three basic forms of matter- dark matter, rich with potential; positive matter, firm and constant; and anti-matter, all-destroying and corrosive. The three had been created to monitor these realms. Alpheus was tasked with monitoring the dark matter realm beneath creation where he would be a mighty World Forger, building the myriad worlds and universes of creation. Mar Novu was tasked with monitoring the positive matter realm, where he would guard the many universes that rose out of the dark from cosmic crises. The last brother, Mobius, was made Novu's opposite, tasked with making sure the light of creation did not breach the greater Omniverse. Curious, Novu asked his mother what her purpose in this new Multiverse was, as her role as creator had already been fulfilled. She told her son that she would remain to make sure that all of her children lived and the Multiverse would keep going.[1]

Five billion years later the Monitor was perplexed by a mysterious planet in the prime universe that had not been created by any of the three brothers or the denizens of the Sphere of the Gods, this planet was called Earth.[1]

  • Monitor Physiology: As a Monitor Mar Novu possesses nigh-infinite power, being one of the most powerful beings in the entire Multiverse.[1] Mar Novu can peer beyond void to watch neighboring Multiverses within the greater Omniverse although this was possible because Mar Novu was in the Monitor Sphere when he did it, the edge of thing.[2] Like his brothers, Mar Novu contains the energies of his respective domain but he lack the power to shape it.[3] Mar Novu has the potential to merge with his brothers to form the Ultra-Monitor.[3]
    • Cosmic Awareness: As one of the three cosmic entities responsible for the nurturing of the Multiverse, Mar Novu possesses vast knowledge about the different realities and dimensions that make up existence.[1]
    • Immortality: Mar Novu was one of the first three beings in the entire Multiverse, created over twenty billion years ago. In this time the Monitor has not aged a single day physically or mentally.[1]
    • Resurrection: Each time the Monitor is miraculously killed, he just re-forms in the Sixth Dimension.[1]
    • Size Alteration: The Monitor can manipulate his physical size. There is no currently no known limit to how much he can grow. He has shown himself capable of growing from the height of an ordinary man to the size of several planets.[1]
