Anti-Monitor

Life is full of positive and negative forces that keep each other in balance. Without both, our very existence would become unstable, our universe would collapse, and all life as we know it would end. No one wants this—no human or animal, no hero or villain. No one, that is, except for the Anti-Monitor.

When the Multiverse was in its infancy, a disruption in its development resulted in the birth of two beings—the Monitor and the Anti-Monitor. The Anti-Monitor first made his home in the Antimatter Universe, but once he conquered all of it, he set his sights on the rest of the Multiverse.

A monstrous being—both physically and mentally—the Anti-Monitor is one of the strongest and most savage villains mankind has ever faced. He’s capable of consuming both antimatter and positive matter, making and unmaking matter at will, all while altering reality and augmenting his own powers. Commanding an army of “shadow demons,” destructive warriors of pure antimatter that are loyal only to him, the Anti-Monitor has single-handedly destroyed thousands of universes. He takes lives by the millions and very few can stand in his way. Those who have, including our greatest super heroes, have met defeat and even death. If you see the Anti-Monitor coming, turn and run, because you don’t have much time…

While it’s possible to enjoy the comic without being familiar with the Multiverse, it can’t hurt to at least know where the idea comes from, and some of the pre-existing comics that have close ties to The Multiversity.
