The Monitors were a race created when the first Monitor began to examine the DC multiverse and found itself overwhelmed by the concept of the "story" within, thus an entire society of entities sharing a fraction of the original Monitor's power was born and began to see themselves as descendants of its great power.
Unfortunately the Monitors were also vampiric in nature and began to see themselves as the supreme overseers of time and space, this led to an inevitable quarrel as the Monitors questioned how they should shape the DC multiverse, they were especially concerned with how to deal with "Multiversal Anomalies" (beings that could cross alternate worlds) : ultimately Monitor Solomon convinced a great many of the Monitors that such things must be violently purged and thus a mass-eradication of entire species began and the Monitors grew to be hated as tyrants.
(more to follow - the Monitor saga is complex and may take time to complete.. apologizes in advance)
Powers / Abilities
- the original Monitor is very similar to the original Beyonder, originating from outside the DC multiverse and coming across the DC multiverse by chance - unlike the Beyonder it seems the Monitor was not enamored by the DC multiverse and instead found it frustrating and confusing.
- the Monitors actions became akin to the Celestials of Marvel comics, eradicating entire civilizations due to a zeal to reshape the multiverse in their image (though for the Monitors a large part of this was due to the influence of Monitor Solomon).
