The Composite Superman was one of the most formidable opponents Superman and Batman ever faced. Originally Joe Meach, a former high diver now working as a janitor in the Superman museum, he was struck by lightning while cleaning a set of statuettes of the Legion of Superheroes. As the statuettes were actually duplicates of the Legion, this somehow caused him to absorb their powers for a brief period. Looking for revenge, he assumed the identity of a being stronger than either Superman or Batman and soundly defeated both, but eventually, the powers ran out and he returned to normal, having lost his memories. Since then, the Composite Superman or a being like him has resurfaced several times, usually through Meach or someone else duplicating the original incident.

He is highly arrogant and idiosyncratic, and tends to toy with his opponents using his arsenal of powers rather than going for an easy victory.
