Imperiex claimed to be the embodiment of entropy. Since the dawn of time, he repeatedly destroyed the universe to create a new one from the ashes of the old. He took the form of pure energy contained inside a humanoid set of armor, colossal in size.

Imperiex arrived on Earth having already destroyed many other worlds. The ensuing war was only ended when a power-boosted Superman literally pushed Warworld through a boom tube, sending Imperiex-Prime's consciousness back to the Big Bang, destroying him and negating any effect on the present.

At least eight million people on Earth died during the war and countless others throught the universe. Several heroes died including Maxima. Aquaman, Doomsday, Guy Gardner, Queen Hippolyta, General Sam Lane (Lois Lane's father), and Steel were all presumed dead, but later returned alive for different reasons.
