Gog possess a huge and boundless amount of mystical powers. However, he chooses to use them in a reactive rather than proactive way, merely granting "wishes" to "make people around him happy". Theoretically he is able to reshape reality at whim, he usually confines himself to granting people their innermost desires.
When the Old Gods of the Third World were fighting uncontrollably, the lone god Gog fled the world before it was fully destroyed in the fighting. He landed in the area currently known as the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where he was entombed in molten rock. He was found by a tribe of humans, who worshipped the god's face (the only visible part of his body), believing he was a "God of Earth." The Tribe made a staff that channelled Gog's power through it, and was put to rest in the same cave the face was contained. The cave, and therefore Gog, was lost to the rest of the world, until a young explorer, William Matthews found the cave by chance. Matthew’s picked up the staff, and was given immense amounts of power; a side effect, though, was visions of the history of Earth-22 which drove him mad. After Matthews committed various acts of Deicide, he engaged the Justice Society. Eventually, Matthew’s teleported back to the temple in the Congo, inadvertently bringing several members of the JSA with him, too. After a brief confrontation, Gog disintegrated, and the Third World god rose, seemingly rejuvenated by the reclamation of the energies that were being used by the staff.
