All in the Family: Highfather and Uncle Sam Bend Time and Space to Keep the Peace
Two centuries ago a hero was born on Earth-Two in the form of the so-called "Spirit of America". After merging with several heroes throughout the centuries, this Spirit eventually recruited a man named Samuel into becoming the latest incarnation of Uncle Sam, just prior to World War II. This Sam found his cosmic twin in the form of Izaya who as the Highfather of the planet New Genesis, guided by an unknown entity known as the Source, Izaya also has vast superhuman powers. As for the Spirit, his doppleganger in Earth-One's universe was the hero known as Vartox of Valeron.
Using his perception of time and space, Highfather led his so-called New Gods of the floating Supertown in the extra-dimensional realm where his world New Genesis and that of planet Apokolips resided. The ruler of that adversarial world, Darkseid, struck up a tenuous peace with Izaya that sometimes broached conflict on the adjacent Earth-One, where both his and Darkseid's forces at times resided.
Using his perception of time and space, Uncle Sam was able to see danger on the horizon of a parallel world to his own, Earth-X... which had no heroes of its own. Over a period of a year, Sam would recruit three different groups of costumed crusaders to join him.
In attempting to save this new world, Sam was secure in the knowledge that his own planet was well protected by its assembled might of the All-Star Squadron. These Freedom Fighters would remain together for decades, battling Nazi oppression alongside his surviving allies.
Meanwhile, Vartox used his vast mental and physical abilities time and again allied with Superman to battle various threats and cope with several personal tragedies. He would like the original Samuel suffer various losses of dear friends and people, adopt a new home world across space and time to call his own. Both Vartox of Valeron and Spirit of America were energy beings that had tremendous superhuman strength and keen perceptive abilities coupled with the power to fold space for various effects.
