Abyss was a Badhnisian man who used to be regularly victimised by criminals and for this reason he deeply admired Batman and wished to become like him. His wish was granted when Lex Luthor came with an offer to make him a new kind of Batman, offering him training, gear and an experimental procedure to grant him darkness based powers, however despite all of his efforts he failed to meet Luthor’s expectations. He was abandoned by Luthor and for the following year he proceeded to terrorise Badhnisia, making an enemy out of local Detective Cayha, hoping to lure back Luthor who sent after him his newly acquired Batman Inc., who were secretly working for Batman with the orders to double cross both Luthor and Abyss by joining forces with the latter.
With the help of Batman Inc. he staged his murder and had his new underlings arrested to lure both Batman and Luthor to him so that he could convince Batman to join him and they could kill Lex Luthor together.
