Before the Fourth World is fully formed,Yuga Khan alongside his wife Heggra and their sons Uxas and Drax,ruled Apokolips with iron hands becoming one of the most feared empires in the universe,but for him that wasn't enough,Yuga Khan was obsessed with becoming the most powerful being in the Universe and mold it to his image,another subsequent obsession was to find out the reason for its existence, as well as other New Gods and to obtain that answer,he tried for centuries unravel the mysteries of The Source.
Imprisioned in the Source Wall
His search after the absolute knowledge,caused him into conflict with Izaya that was trying to promote a peace treaty with Apokolips. Izaya warned Yuga Khan that this knowledge would be his ruin and destruction and he replied to such warning, with a simple slap and then goes to the Galaxy Promethean,because were rumors that The Source could be found there and when he found it,ended up imprisioned in the Source wall.
As a result his wife Heggra became ruler of Apokolips and ordered Desaad kill Uxa's wife Suli,believing the love makes him weak,that made Uxas kill his own brother to take the Omega Force and became Darkseid. Later he forced Desaad to poison his mother so he can ascend to the throne,claiming that Khan was the past and he is the future. During the millennium that was imprisoned,Yuga Khan impotently watched these events.
Rule Apokolips again and return to the Source Wall

Its return to Apokolips made everyone tremble before his presence,even Darkseid feared him. Yuga Khan onfronted his own son about the Heggra's murder,Darkseid tried to destroy him with the Omega Beams, which had no effect on him,he used his powers to control the matter around Darkseid and holds it in Apokolips underground,after confronted Desaad swore loyalty to him, but was eventually disintegrated. Once again Yuga Khan rule Apokolips and he made the whole army of the planet, worked double to build more weapons of war.
Shortly after he cut the influence of The Source over Apokolips and New Genesis,rendering Boom Tubes,Mother Box and others technolgies inoperative,to counter the threat of Yuga Khan, a armed fleet of New Genesis invaded Apokolips, but they are easily overpowered and their leader Commander Gideon,was killed by him.
