Originally, Dr. Destiny was a normal man, inventor of an anti gravity device he used to impersonate Green Lantern and infiltrate the Justice League of America. Unmasked and defeated by the League, Destiny spent his time in prison constructing the Materioptikon, a device that made dreams a reality. Again, he attacked the JLA with this device and again he was defeated.
Working for months, he recreated his materioptikon, improving the device and fashioning it into a ruby clasp around his neck. Using his ruby materioptikon, he invaded the dreams of the various JLA members and turned their nightmares into horrible reality. Despite his improved powers, the JLA defeated Destiny again, this time by tampering with the materioptikon and affecting Destiny's own mind.
