The Omniverse, also referred to as the "Greater Omniverse", the "Infinity" and "The Place beyond All Places" and "The Firmament", is the representation of all the existence: it is the collection of every multiverse, universe, including our own world, and dimension that ever came to exist, actually exists, will ever exist or never come to exist in the future. Everything, real or imaginary, is part of the Omniverse.

Its supreme ruler is The Source of All Things,[1] who lives out there in the Omniverse, along with its "children", the so-called Hands, overseeing all of the Creation.[21] The Omniverse is composed of an infinite number of Multiverses, which are agglomerations of infinite realities, including the "main" DC Multiverse, Dark Multiverse, the Animated Multiverse and the Wildstorm Multiverse.

History

The Omniverse was created countless eons ago by the The Source of all Existence,[1] the very first being in all of Creation. It also birthed a race of Omega-Class entities,[1] the so-called The Hands, also referred to as Super-Celestials, who were tasked to create the Multiverses using The Seven Forces of the Universe.

Every Multiverse is created by an Hand according to the rule that, once they finished their job to create existence, they should die or move on into the Omniverse to give birth to a whole new Multiverse; the true goal of each Multiverse should be the achievement of the perfect harmony between every being in the infinite realities that made up the Multiverse.[2] However, each Multiverse eventually has to reach its inevitable ending.[1]

The Source chose a series of cosmic guardians among the Hands, the Judges, including the Raptor, that would check on each Multiverse so that, if its balance of Good and Evil would shift from Justice to Doom (or viceversa), they would enact a Cosmic Judgment and destroy the Multiverse for good. According to Perpetua, the greatest sin in all the Omniverse is to reach beyond what you are meant to know.[2]

The Source also created a special being, the Chronicler, in order to record the histories of dying Multiverses, including their moments of destruction, into a special book that It gifted to him, the Codex Omniversa.[1]

The Creation of the DC Multiverse

Eons ago, the Source created a female Hand, Perpetua, to whom He gifted seven Cosmic Powers that she would use to create her own Multiverse. Twenty billions years ago, Perpetua reached the ever-existing Void and made up a supreme reality, the Sixth Dimension, from where she modeled three different realms which she assigned to each one of her newly born children: a realm of dark matter, which would later shape all the creation that she assigned to Alpheus; an infinite Orrery of Worlds that would have been monitored by Mar Novu; a realm of antimatter, ruled by Mobius, that was also meant to be the very first boundary between the Multiverse and the Overvoid as well as the rest of the Omniverse.

However, despite having fulfilled her role, as Mar Novu made her notice,[2] Perpetua chose to stay in her Multiverse and enact her masterplan: in fact, she began experimenting on many species in order to create a supreme race that could be the perfect soldiers to invade and conquer other Multiverses. Five billion years later, Perpetua managed to create an army of Apex Predators by mixing the DNA of the inhabitants of planet Earth with that of the residents of a nearby planet in The Prime Universe.

After observing nearby Multiverses, Mar Novu confronted his Mother and became aware of her masterplan that he knew, after observing other Multiverses, it would have caused trouble with the Hands; after escaping an attack of the Apex Predators' army, Novu and his brothers hid themselves in order to find away to warn The Judges of the Source.

Two thousand years later, in the Promethean Galaxy, the three Brothers built a Multiversal Tuning Fork to send a distress call into the Omniverse. However, Perpetua and her army ambushed them but, befoe the Brothers Three could be slaughtered by the cosmic villains, the Judges sent one of their enforcers, The Cosmic Raptor, who punished Perpetua by sealing her and the Totality of her power into the void, building a Wall from the bodies of her Apex Predators, to use it as an eternal prison.

Despite saving them, the Raptor warned the Brothers Three that, one day, the Cosmic Judgment would have come for their Creation. In the aftermath of Perpetua's banishment, the so-called "Source Wall" became the new boundary between the Multiverse and the Greater Omniverse, making the Antimatter Universe obsolete and causing a rift between Mar Novu and Mobius, who called himself the Anti-Monitor,[2] that would later lead to the First Crisis.

Alpheus forged what he would eventually be called Hypertime,[3] an infinite web of realities that contained all the Alternate Timelines and Possible Futures; it could also connect every reality in the Multiverse through the Timestream that flows inside the Hypertime. With the creation of Hypertime, it was born what it would be known as The Divine Continuum, the complete representation of all Existence.[4]

Years later, from Crisis to Crisis,[2] the Multiverse reshaped itself around the renewed versions of the Prime Universe which was itself a sentient reality that would eventually be referred to as the Metaverse.[5] Meanwhile, into the realm of Alpheus, its "puppet", Barbatos, rebelled against him and stopped destroying the decaying universes, forming a whole new Multiverse, the Dark Multiverse, made up by the nightmares of the residents of the "positive" Multiverse.[2]

In 2015, a possible future version of Brainiac began "stealing" cities from Hypertime to use it in a wicked game on planet Telos. During this "Convergence", the evil wizard Deimos stole the energies of many time-travelers in order to create a Multiverse of his own: however, after his defeat, all the energies he gathered began destabilizing the Existence itself: in order to save it, Brainiac sent a few beings from past iterations of the Multiverse to avert the Crisis on Infinite Earths[6] and prevent the creation of a single reality.[7]

As a consequence of their actions, past iterations of the Multiverse were restored to existence; furthermore, a new "evolved" Multiverse, where the Pre-Crisis realities were never destroyed, was born in the Omniverse.[6]

The Metal Wars

A few years later, in the epilogue of Barbatos' invasion, the Source Wall was breached due to the Justice League's actions.[8] This allowed Perpetua's escape from her banishment and began the Multiverse meltdown as it began shifting towards the Overvoid.[9]

Perpetua's return led to a war between Justice and Doom: in the final moments of the War, the Multiverse residents ultimately chose to side with Perpetua and her Legion which completely shifted the balance of the Universe toward Doom.[10] The Hands became aware of this event and ultimately sanctioned to enact their Cosmic Judgment on the Multiverse. After Perpetua allowed the Batman who Laughs' invasion of Earth 0 and the creation of the Metalverse,[11] the Coluan Vril Dox began sending signal into the greater Omniverse in order to escape the Multiverse's incoming end.[1]

During the final battle between Perpetua and the Batman who Laughs, who had turned himself into the Darkest Knight, as the Multiverse was coming towards its end, the Chronicler came from the greateer Omniverse to record its incoming death: his arrival was registered by Vril Dox who prepared to strike a deal with him for his own survival. After meeting up with the Psycho Pirate, Chronicler discovered the long history of the Multiverse, wondering why a place of heroes and fairy tales managed to corrupt itself to the brink of destruction: he realized that the Multiverse and its residents were different from every other being the other Multiverses and came to believe that they are eternal and deserved to exist out into the Omniverse.[1]

Soem time after the death of Perpetua at the hands of the Darkest Knight,[12] during the final clash between him and Wonder Woman at the Dawn of Time, the Dark Batman revealed to her his true intentions: in fact, he wanted to use the infinite power he was channelling from the Dark Multiverse to murder the Hands, as they were to destroy the Multiverse, and continue Perpetua's plan to conquer the Omniverse. Despite knowing she would die anyway, Wonder Woman prevented the Hands' death by murdering the Darkest Knight at the End of Time.

Infinite Frontier

As a reward for her selflessness, the Hands chose to spare Diana and the rest of the Multiverse's residents. Furthermore, They also restored to the existence every previous iterations of the Multiverse, creating a web of multiverses, an "omniverse" into the greater Omniverse, which Wally West referred to as the Infinite Frontier.[13] However, the Hands warned her that a "cost" would have been paid as a consequence of the return of the Multiverse: in fact, inside the Overvoid, the Great Darkness woke up and its energy was stolen by Pariah/Kell Mossa, who had previously planned to create its version of the Multiverse

In the aftermath of the Metal Wars, the residents of the restored Multiverse began referring to the Infinite Frontier as the "Omniverse" itself.[14][15]
