View full history
When Batman shot Darkseid with a radion bullet at the end of Final Crisis, the dark god retaliated by striking Bruce down with his Omega Beams, seemingly killing him. Earth's heroes mourned the loss of one of their finest, but in reality, Darkseid had not killed Batman. He had used his powers to warp time around Bruce, infusing him with Omega energy and sending him back to the Stone Age without any memory of who he really was.
The infusion of Omega energy would cause Bruce to uncontrollably jump forward in time until he reached the present. Each jump would increase the concentration of Omega energy in Bruce's body, until his final arrival in the present, at which point the energy would blow a hole in time and decimate the universe. Once this happened, the Hyper-Adapter would take control of Batman's body, carving out a space in his mind for Darkseid to return, take possession of it and rule over reality once and for all.
The Hyper-Adapter was created by writer Grant Morrison, as part of a long Batman arc that encompassed Batman RIP, Final Crisis and The Return of Bruce Wayne.
