The World Forger also known as Alpheus is the first son of Perpetua and brother of the Monitor and the Anti-Monitor. Alpheus was assigned in the World Forge, a place deep in the dark beneath creation to create universes from the fears and feelings of every living being of the multiverse. The most stable universes will rose into the Orrery of Worlds and for the unstable one, Alpheus will dispatch his dragon known as Barbatos to destroy them and return their energies to the forge.

In some point after Perpetua's imprisonment in the Source Wall and the restart of the Multiverse, the World Forger was eventually killed by Barbatos and the later corrupted the World Forge. After Barbatos' defeat, Alpheus was reformed in the Sixth Dimension. Following the destruction of the Source wall and the liberation of Perpetua, Alpheus started to create countless universes in attempt to create a perfect multiverse of justice to replace the current one in order to save peoples of the current multiverse who have a place in his new multiverse of justice from being destroyed by the Judges of the Source.


  • Crisis Anvil: When a multiversal Crisis occurs, a Crisis Anvil appear before Alpheus which he can strike with his hammer to descend a brand new multiverse to replace the destroyed one. The life energies of every living being of the former multiverse who have a place to his new world will be transferred to the new multiverse.
  • Cosmic Awareness: As one of the three cosmic entities responsible for the nurturing of his Multiverse, the World Forger possesses vast knowledge about the different realities and dimensions that make up existence.[1]

  • Metamorphosis: The World Forger can manipulate his physical shape at will, taking on the form of an elderly Superman.[1]
  • Size Alteration: As well as changing his shape, World Forge can also change his size. In his natural form he towers above the members of the Justice League, standing at around twice their height. However he was able to shrink himself down in order to take the shape of Superman.[1]
  • Precognition: World Forger is able to see indefinitely into the future, allowing him to be constantly aware of what the future holds.[1]
  • Superhuman Strength: World Forger possesses an incalculable strength level, able to stop the full might of one of Superman's punches with his pinky finger.[1]
  • Psychic Link: The World Forger is able to maintain a psychic link between multiple minds with no struggle.[1]
  • Teleportation: The World Forger can teleport himself and others vast distances with no issue, such as teleporting the entire Justice League from the safety of Earth to Apokolips, which lies in an alternate dimension.[1]
