As Gorr was traveling through dimensions he came across the world of New Genesis, home of the New Gods. Eager to kill more deities he rushed in only to discover both worlds were already littered with corpses. Unlike his psychopathic manner of murder, however, the gods had all been killed the same way... a massive hole in their chest told the tale, their life essence, their very souls, ripped from them. Dumbfounded, he heard screaming as a lone woman ran from a house towards him. "By the Source, I thought I was the only one..."
Then a flash of light appeared, her screaming dulled and died, and her corpse was tossed aside. A tall, muscular man in a very gaudy costume turned and look at him, the goddesses' heart still in his hand.
"You are not a New God," stated Infinity Man. "Begone. My work is for the Source and you shall not interfere."
Enraged by such hubris, Gorr stood ready for battle, his dark energy circling around him and taking form.
