Sky Tyrant of Earth 3 was one of Ktar Deathbringer's many reincarnations across time and space. Unlike most of his other lives, Sky Tyrant was a twisted murderer who sought to kill as many as he could so as to perpetually prolong his reincarnation cycle.
Incarnated on Earth 3, an aberrational location in the multiverse where good and evil are reversed, Sky Tyrant disregarded the penance his past selves undertook for Ktar's killings. Instead, afraid of dying and free of guilt, he sought to kill in order to live forever. As in his past lives, he reunited with his reincarnated lover, who was likewise twisted. He went on to become the long-standing Chairman of the Injustice Society, opposed by the Justice Society All-Stars, and at one point encountered Owlman of the Crime Syndicate.
Sky Tyrant is finally bested by the Justice Society All-Stars, comprised of Lion-Miss, the Pinkerton Ghost, Matter Mage and Shadow Sheriff. Refusing to be arrested, he tries to fight back, only to be swiftly defeated. Shadow Sheriff then proceeds to phase through and stop Sky Tyrant's heart, killing him, though not before he vows to return.
All throughout the time of his future reincarnations, Sky Tyrant sat in the "passenger's seat" at the back of their minds, disgusted at their morality and atonement. When Hawkman (Carter Hall) of Prime Earth, a future life of Sky Tyrant, unlocked memories over supposedly all of his prior space-time incarnations, he wasn't able to remember his murderous past self. At some point, The Batman Who Laughs manages to secretly infect Carter. The infection slowly corrupts him into Sky Tyrant, starting with dreams of his killings on Earth 3 and making Carter more aggressive and violent. After a mission in the Shadowlands where his mace unexpectedly turns into his villainous life's and Carter's friend The Shade prevents him from killing Shadow Sheriff's Prime Earth counterpart Shadow Thief, Sky Tyrant finally takes over as Carter's body morphs into his.
Sky Tyrant is dismayed to find himself not on his home Earth, but one where people live freely. Before he can resume his killing spree, he encounters Carter's spirit, who is in his head. After introducing himself, he attempts to bring down a plane full of people - only for Carter to prevent this by wrestling with him for control of their body. However, Carter's spirit starts getting pulled towards where Sky Tyrant was previously locked away, in the back of his mind. As Sky Tyrant again attempts to kill more people, he is subdued by his lover's reincarnation, Hawkwoman.
Sky Tyrant and Deathbringer attacked Batman and Superman in the Fortress of Solitude after The Commissioner and Scarab gain control of it. While looking for the escaped heroes, Sky Tyrant and Deathbringer nearly break into a fight before Batman reveals himself. After managing to subdue Deathbringer, Batman fails to get the better of Sky Tyrant. However, the last minute arrival of Supergirl saves Batman. After Supergirl herself is infected, the Secret Six are at last assembled and open a gateway to the Dark Multiverse.
