The Omega Titan Mystery embodies one of the four fundamental energies of sentient life — Mystery — and will consume the world where that energy is dominant.

Mystery was as old as the universe, and implanted early worlds with Cosmic Seeds with the hope that the Titan would consume them at the end of time, and be proven superior to its three brother/ mother Omega Titans.[1] But when the Source Wall was prematurely cracked[2], Mystery and the other three Titans were released, and sought the energy necessary to repair the Wall and keep Perpetua contained.[3]

When the Tree of Mystery bloomed on Colu, it was second to only the Tree of Wisdom, as Mystery had the World Nursery to fertilize it. The nursery held ten thousand unknown worlds that had been collected by the Coluans. Yet Colu was ruled by Wisdom, and Mystery did not even appear. Once Wisdom's armor opened and spread around Colu, the planet was devoured and Mystery appeared ready to judge the Earth.[4]

The Omega Titans had heard the call of the Cosmic Seed that Brainiac had planted on Earth, and Mystery followed the call to the Tree of Mystery that blossomed at the Fortress of Solitude. But the largest fundamental energy on Earth was represented by the Tree of Entropy, and it was that Omega Titan that prepared to engulf the planet, while Mystery stood by.[5]

The Justice League radically changed the focus of the Titans by creating a Cosmic Seed containing all four energies which Green Arrow fired into the heart of Entropy - raising the hunger of Mystery and its brothers who devoured Entropy. Satiated, Mystery wandered the universe until the Thanagarians used a Cosmic Seed from the Tree of Mystery to track the Titan down. Shayera drew Mystery through Starman's portal and to the Source Wall, where Starman was assembling all the Titans in order to seal the crack, and Starman claimed that one function of the Omega Titans was to repair the Wall.[3]

But Brainiac's interference caused the catastrophic failure of the Source Wall, and Mystery was consumed in the explosion.[3]

Powers

  • Alien Physiology: Mystery's true form was implied to be made of pure energy.[6]
  • Energy Absorption: Mystery consumed planets by opening its armor and pulling planets within, absorbing the collected Mystery energy from the world.[1]
  • Interstellar Travel: Mystery was large enough to remain outside of the atmospheric envelope, when standing on a planet, and the Omega Titan could transit space near instantaneously between planets.
  • Invulnerability: Lacking a physical body, and encased in impregnable armor, Mystery could not be harmed by conventional means.[6]
  • Immortality: Mystery was older than the universe, and awaited its end.[6]
  • Size Alteration: At times Mystery appeared the size of a city, and at others the Titan was as large as a planet.[7][4]

Abilities

  • Indomitable Will: Omega Titans were so driven to fulfill their universal function that Wisdom resisted the influence of a gargantuan Starro and scarcely noticed the attack of Superman. Mystery turned and ate its brother/mother Titan Entropy without question or delay when Green Arrow fired a Cosmic Seed replete with Mystery energy into its heart.[5]

Weaknesses

  • Technological Reliability: Mystery's weakness was not an Achilles heel — it was still a Titan — but the only time the Titan was at all vulnerable was when it had to open its armor to consume a world.[5]
