Long ago, the Proto-Monitor Novu had a son who became the sole survivor of his kind when the entire Monitor race died. This youth took it upon himself to guard the entire Multiverse from unimaginable threats.
Receiving a call for help from Earth 7, Nix Uotan and Mr. Stubbs boarded the Ultima Thule to where the S.O.S. was sent and found nothing but death. That Earth was ravaged by a mysterious group called The Gentry, the ones who sent the call for help to gain the Monitor's attention. Offering him to trade his life for that universe's last survivor, Nix accepted the condition and sent the Thunderer to gather help from the Multiverse while he dealt with the destroyers.
Alone against The Gentry, Nix was seemingly defeated and ultimately corrupted by these horrible creatures, becoming The Dark Monitor.
After kneeling towards The Gentry's master, The Empty Hand, Nix Uotan was tasked to assemble a league of mad scientists, open the doors of the Orrery of Worlds for The Gentry to invade, and release the tomb of the slumbering Darkseid on Earth 51 in order "plague all of creation" in the name of their master. He was later sealed in a Genesis Egg on Earth 8, waiting for Lord Havok to use a myriad of mystical artifacts' power to hatch it, unleashing his menace on the entire universe.
The heroes did all they could to stop Nix Uotan to no avail, with him incapacitating Superman and wounding Captain Carrot until Aquawoman used her bioelectric power to alter his energy and the Flashes of the Multiverse united their strength to destroy his evil forcefield and release him from The Gentry's control. Now free, the Superjudge was too weak to fight the invaders who immediately arrived to destroy the universe, but the super-army he assembled took the monsters head on and quickly defeated them.
A fake victory, since The Gentry's master was merely testing the Orrery of World's heroes in preparation of the real invasion, an event that he will bring forth in the future.
The invasion over, the Monitor was congratulated by the Harbinger for his heroic actions alongside his partner Stubbs, proclaiming that he saved multi-trillions of lives and had the gratitude of 50 worlds, finally returning to his home universe to continue with his life.
