The Anti-Monitor, real name Mobius, is one of the three sons of Perpetua, created when she tore pieces from the Overvoid to shape into her children. He existed before the first version of the DC Multiverse was finished being created, and was made in order to guard the boundaries of Creation from the greater Omniverse beyond, a duty that was later fulfilled by the Source Wall. This usurpation was knowingly set in motion by his brother, the Monitor, leading to their long-lasting war.
Mobius returned in the second version of the DC Multiverse, reborn on Qward (or its moon), where he built the Mobius Chair in order to study the secrets of the multiverse. He discovered the Anti-Life Equation at the center of the antimatter universe, becoming bound to it, leaving the Mobius Chair to come into the possession of the Pre-Flashpoint emanation of Metron. Mobius enslaved the antimatter universe as his empire and created the Thunderers of Qward, turning the most elite among them into his Shadow Demons. He entered into a million-year conflict with Mar Novu which ended when both were knocked into comas.
Much later, after he was awakened by the actions of Pariah, Mobius initiated the Crisis on Infinite Earths. He would later be defeated by the actions of the Spectre and Earth's heroes, later returning alongside the 52 Multiverse. He joined the Sinestro Corps as their Guardian while not fully reborn, and after being defeated his near-dead body was enslaved by Nekron as the power source for the Black Lantern Corps. He was revived by the Life Entity and, after the Flashpoint event, instigated a conflict with Darkseid in order to rid himself of the Anti-Life Equation. He succeeded but was destroyed by it due to the actions of Grail, and after returning again to the Sixth Dimension, his current whereabouts are unknown.

Weaknesses: If his armor is sufficiently damaged, his energy may leak out | None notable
- Before making any changes to this page, please read and follow the Power-scaling Rules for Marvel and DC Comics.
- The destruction of infinite universes occurred in a finite amount of time, as the first to be destroyed was Earth-Three at the beginning of the story.
- The original Anti-matter wave was Mobius' doing.
- The Anti-Matter cannon was only built when only 5 of the infinite universes had not yet been destroyed because Mar Novu's dying act was to make a netherverse from his energy, absorbing and protecting the remaining universes, while his tuning forks partially merged them, fortifying them.
- While the DC Comics Encyclopedia: All-New Edition says that the New 52 incarnation is comparable to the COIE incarnation, we haven't found anything in the comics to support the statement.
