Pure Evil Wiki

As always, he proves the incompetent fool for not accepting the inevitable! When I am done, all his universes shall be destroyed... while mine shall rule supreme! Universe after universe has fallen before my power. World after world is absorbed into one. How many worlds do I now control? How many lives are now mine?
~ Anti-Monitor.
My curse. My destiny. My reason. It no longer matters. As you are now the witness, I am the Destroyer.
~ Anti-Monitor.

The Anti-Monitor is one of the main antagonists of DC Comics.

He famously served as the primary antagonist of the 1985 storyline Crisis on Infinite Earths. He first appeared in Crisis on Infinite Earths #2 (although he remained in shadow until Crisis on Infinite Earths #5), and was destroyed in Crisis on Infinite Earths #12, only to return after a long absence in Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps Special #1 (2007). Hailing from Qward, the Antimatter Universe, the Anti-Monitor was the polar opposite of the Monitor, created when the universe split into the Multiverse. Despising everything that wasn't him, the Anti-Monitor sought to destroy the Multiverse one reality at a time by initiating a "entropy wave", a slow-moving wave of antimatter that obliterated every alternate Earth. He is the arch-enemy of the Monitor, the Justice League, and the Green Lantern Corps.
