Perpetua is the first creator and the mother of the Over-Monitor, Anti-Monitor and the World Forger. She is the most feared being in the greater Omniverse, out of all her brothers and sisters tending the infinite Multiverses.[1]

Early Existence

Throughout the void, the Super Celestials were tasked to birth Multiverses using the positive Connective Energies and then dying, giving themselves to the newborn reality. However the rogue among them wanted a vicious reality meant to live forever in a self-renewing loop of crisis and rebirth.[2] The name of that rogue Super Celestial was Perpetua. She created the first iteration of the Multiverse using the negative Crisis Energies and created her three sons Mar Novu, Alpheus and Mobius, as its first inhabitants. Once created, Perpetua explained to them that her Multiverse comprises of three main realms made out of the three basic forms of matter- dark matter, positive matter and antimatter, and created them to monitor these realms. She assigned Alpheus to the dark matter realm beneath creation where he would build the myriad universes of creation. Mar Novu was assigned to the positive matter realm, where he would guard the many universes that rose out of the dark from cosmic crises. Mobius was assigned to the antimatter realm where he would prevent the light of creation to breach the Greater Omniverse. Curious, Mar Novu asked Perpetua what her purpose in this Multiverse was, as her role as creator had already been fulfilled. She told him that she would remain to make sure that all of her children lived.[3]

Five billion years later, Perpetua was approached by Mar Novu on Earth-0, she shows him her latest creation, the Apex Predators, explaining that she searched in all universes for beings with great potential and when she did, she found them imperfect so she bound them with the green beings of the neighboring planet, merging their worlds entirely. Troubled, he told her that he spied into the Greater Omniverse and found no double in her form in the neighboring Multiverses but a cosmic judgement coming for them because she have altered the core of creation into something evil and that she was well aware of that and wished to fight back. Perpetua then tried to share her point of view in vain, leading her to order her Apexes attack Novu, forcing him to flee.[4] Two hundred years later, she confronted her sons, who were trying to alert the judges of her doings, with her Apexes but the fight was interrupted by a cosmic raptor, accusing Perpetua to have defied her function. The raptor then imprisoned her along the the totality of power she hoarded in the Source Wall and the Multiverse was then remade without her taints. Her kinds hoped that eventually, by watching the growth of the people of the Multiverse from the Source Wall, she would learn to love them but instead grown in rage, stocking desire, greed and the idea to make cosmic crisises to whoever hearing her whispers.[5]

Source Wall Breaking

After the invasion of the Dark Multiverse by her last scion, Barbatos and the Batman Who Laughs, Perpetua was freed from her prison, the Totality which landed on Earth-0 after the wall breaking,[6] by Lex Luthor and the Legion of Doom with almost six parts of her dark powers unlocked.[7] However, doing this exhausted her energies to the point that she felt asleep.

Year of the Villain

At some point, she awoke and remade Lex Luthor into an Apex Predator as her second in command after the later faked his own death.

Justice/Doom War

While the Justice League divided into two them, one for the Totality's shards which were across time and the other for recruiting Mobius, Perpetua and Lex were heading to the Promethean Galaxy with the intent to recruit her son Mobius. Meanwhile, Hypertime was within the grasp of Perpetua, allowing the Legion of Doom, who were in different timelines, to affect them as they see fit without erasing their present.[8] Arrived in the Promethean Galaxy, she was confronted by Mobius and his brothers alongside the Justice Leauge. During the fight, the three brothers merged together to form the Ultra-Monitor, strong enough to fight their mother.[9] At the end of the battle, Starman and his analog from the past and future were going to open a portal to bring the rest of the Justice League who gathered the shards of the Totality across the the past and the future however, due to fact that the psychic energy shifted toward doom and Hawkgirl's vendetta against Lex Luthor who previously absorbed J'onn J'onzz within himself, the portal closed before the rest of the league could join the battle and Perpetua was restored to all her might and then grant to Mobius who betrayed his brothers the Anti-Life Equation.[10] She then crush Starman on her fist and and exclaimed that she have the entire Multiverse to remade.[11]

She came to Earth 19, noticing that this world has doom in its core but its people still chose justice thus, she destroyed this universe for this. She then returned to the Promethean Galaxy explaining her plan to Lex and Mobius and remade every humans who believe in doom into Apex Predators. She was alerted by Lex that Hawkgirl was trying to flee with her newfound abilities, she was able to see her and turn off Hawkgirl's ship making it crashing somewhere else.[12] At some point after the return of the Legion of Doom, she turned Brainiac into her throne and the other members as conduits of power for Lex now wielding the The Seven Forces of the Universe.[13] Later, she came to Earth 44 and throw it toward her sons who were recently freed from their brother Mobius thanks to John Stewart's intervention but they managed to flee before the impact thanks to Alpheus' sacrifice. Much later, Perpetua came to Earth-0 to confront the Justice League who have defeated Lex Luthor and gathered Hawkgirl, John Stewart and J'onn J'onzz. During the confrontation, J'onn managed to reach out the minds of all the people of the planet, trying to convince them to break free of Perpetua's lies which shifted the psychic balance toawrd justice, strings of energy started to wrap up Perpetua. However, just as the victory was near for the league, the balance shifted for doom again, breaking free of her bonds, Perpetua explained that she allowed the psychic connection J'onn had with Earth's people to happen because she wanted them to see their people rejecting them since she was the creator of the Multiverse and also explained that she left a piece of the Totality across time for Vandal Savage who will recruit the Luthors to found a way to unlock her powers as she planned. She then obliterated the Justice League however without her knowing, the league were saved by the Quintessence.[14]

Hell Arisen

After the defeat of the Justice League, the Multiverse was almost defenceless against Perpetua and Lex Luthor who rule over it. During a meating she had with the Crime Syndicate of Earth-3, she turned its people into Apex Predators and killed Johnny Quick after his disagreement to join her. Later, she sent her second in charge Lex Luthor to Earth in order to eradicate The Batman Who Laughs and his Secret Six who were trying to spread the Dark Multiverse's infection throught the world. After Lex defeated the laughing Batman, he bring him before Perpetua, showing her his victory however, the evil Bruce tell her that she missed the Justice League on which she thought them dead were sent in quest to defeat her for good. Due to Lex's insolence, she chosen The Batman Who Laughs as her new second in command but not before Lex learning that the vision of future he had about the mans ruling over the gods was a hoax made by Perpetua in order to manipulate him, stripping Lex Luthor of his powers and she then send him back to Earth.[15]

The Reign of Perpetua

Perpetua was confronted by the Justice League harnessing the Connective Energy at an unspecified date and ended on a massive blow that weakened both forces. She was however able to recover thanks to the Dark Multiverse conduit where the greatest Crisises happen forever as long people remember them. At some point, she destroyed Earth 22 with many others universes, reducing the Multiverse from fifty two universe to only eight.[16]

Powers

  • Nigh-Omnipotence: Perpetua is a godlike being of extreme power,[17] capable of destroying and corrupting entire universes on a slightly weaker state.[18] The Monitor, the World Forger and the Anti-Monitor were unable to defeat her without help from The Source.[19] Even while asleep, planets form around her fingers and galaxies were born and die around her.[20] She wields the Seven Hidden Forces Of Creation which allowed her to create the entire Multiverse and command it as well, including;
    • Still Force: The Still Force is based around entropy and inertia and the counter-energy to the Speed Force which gives the multiverse motion. It can negate motion, decelerating or even halting the conduit's aging, or create physical constructs.
    • Invisible Spectrum: The Invisible Spectrum feeds on buried primal emotions. The Invisible Spectrum is the counter-energy to the Emotional Spectrum which gives the Multiverse feelings.
    • Tear of Extinction: The Tear of Extinction brings death to all living beings and immortals. It is driven toward isolation and solipsism and is tied to the Death Force. The Tear of Extinction is the counter-energy to the Life Force which connects every living being down to their souls.
    • Void Wind: The twin force of the Tear of Extinction capable of snuffing out both magic and Gods, it can also subdue them as seen with Cheetah controlling the god Poseidon. The Void Wind is the counter-energy to the Sphere of the Gods which gives the Multiverse magic.
    • Black Apple: The Black Apple is based around forbidden knowledge and is counter-energy to the Collective Unconscious which gives others knowledge and wisdom and is the power source for the telepaths.
    • Sixth Note: The Sixth Note is a power beyond imagination itself. The counter-energy to the Dimensional Superstructure which governs all things imaginable and unimaginable and gives to those set to monitor creation like Alpheus, Mobius and Mar Novu their powers.
    • Faithlessness: The seventh Force, it is tied to the nature of Faith and appears to be associated with the concept of "Doom".
  • Reality Alteration: Her control over the Multiverse allow her to replace the harmonious forces with the darker ones as governing energies of creation.[21] When she is in control, Perpetua can make the resurrection of her children in the Sixth Dimension impossible.[22]
  • Bio-Fusion: Perpetua can merge species together as she did when she merged the Humans and the Martians.[23]
  • Molecular Reconstruction: Perpetua can rearrange matter as she wishes, as she displayed when she turned Brainiac into her throne.[24]
  • Energy Construct Creation: Perpetua can create almost anything she wants from physical objects, to portals[25] and even life forms as displayed when she created her children from the Overvoid.[26]
  • Energy Projection: Perpetua can shape the energies of creation in its totality, whether it be those of the Multiverse, Dark Multiverse and Antimatter Universe.[27] She can gather enough energy to end an entire universe, eradicating it from existence completely, but this taxes her powers.[28]
  • Disintegration: Perpetua has the ability to vaporize others with a mere thought. She displayed this power when she vaporized Johnny Quick after his disagreement to join her.[29]
  • Cosmic Awareness: Perpetua possesses vast knowledge about the different realities and dimensions that make up existence and its mechanisms of healing.[30]
  • Clairvoyance: Perpetua can sense various events throughout the Multiverse and even through its highest dimension. Furthermore, she can peer into the Fourth Dimension to see the future.[31]
  • Mechanokinesis: Perpetua can manipulate technology to some degree. She was able to turn off the ship of the Justice League with a thought.[32]
  • Size Alteration: Perpetua can alter her physical size. There's currently no known limit on how much she can grow. She has shown herself capable of growing from normal heights to the size of several planets.[33] In the Sixth Dimension however, she held the Multiverse in her hands.[34]
  • Telepathy: Perpetua is an incredibly strong telepath capable of overwhelming the combined psychic abilities of M'gann M'orzz and Shayne J'onzz with ease.[35] J'onn J'onzz was only able to communicate with Earth-0 people because she allowed the connection.[36]
  • Power Distribution: Perpetua can bestow The Seven Forces of the Universe to others and gave Mobius the Anti-Life Equation.
  • Immortality: Perpetua is even older than the Multiverse, as she was the one who created its first iteration. This makes her much older than 20 billion years.
  • Resurrection: Like her children, each time Perpetua is miraculously killed, she just re-forms in the Sixth Dimension.[37]
  • Teleportation: Perpetua can make herself and others appear anywhere in the entire Multiverse with no issues, such as transport herself from the Promethean Galaxy, which lies at the end of the universe of Earth-0 to Earth-19.[38] She once returned the Justice Legion and the Justice Society of America back to their respective timelines.[39]

Weaknesses

  • Power Loss: Despite her enormous powers, Perpetua needs the psychic energy of the Multiverse tipping in her favor to restore her strength and the harmonious energies or those of the Dark Multiverse are a threat to her, preventing her from restoring her powers.[40]

Equipment

Perpetua created technologies capable of stabilizing Hypertime which she gifted to Brainiac, allowing him to steal infinite futures of death from Hypertime.

Transportation

Perpetua created the Godhead, a spaceship which serves as headquarter for her.

Weapons

A staff.
