Origin

After the destruction of Kansas when the hero Captain Atom's armor was breached by the Parasite, Superman came out of retirement to search for survivors. Near the town of Riverdale he found a lone survivor, a boy who would become known as William.


As William matured he began to believe Superman was a god and that he chose him as his apostle. Hearing of the Church of Superman, Clark Kent sought to turn William from the path of idol worship, confessing that Kansas was destroyed because of his failing as Superman.


Disillusioned and without purpose William set flame to his church and wandered the streets asking strangers to tell him in what to believe. In his delirium he was approached by the godlike Phantom Stranger and given a boon of knowledge and power from the elder gods known as the Quintessence. The knowledge William received sent him into madness and he resolved to end the evil of Superman. After killing Clark Kent, he traveled back into time - day by day - repeatedly rendering judgment as Gog.
