Barbatos is a comic supervillain who features in DC Comics.
During the creation of the existence, there was a figure known as the World Forger charged for hammering Universes out of the fears and hopes of every living beings of the Multiverse in a place called the World Forge, a place of pure possibly deep in the dark beneath creation. For the most stable Universes, the World Forger would rise these worlds within the Orrery of Worlds while for the unstable ones, he would dispatch his dragon known as Barbatos to destroy them and return their energies back to the World Forge. However, Barbatos ends up killing his master and thus, he corrupted the World Forge. As a result, the deformed Universes that were unstable proliferated, populating the realm in which the World Forge lay with timelines that were all slightly off in their premise, resulting eventually in hell on their various iterations of Earth. Collectively, the Universes within the vicinity of the World Forge came to be referred to as the Dark Multiverse.
In some point, Barbatos succeeded to enter Earth Prime at the dawn of man thanks to the secret efforts of the deity's worshipers and almost conquered its people but was sent back to the Dark Multiverse by Hawkman and Hawkgirl at the cost of their own lifes. However, Barbatos saw Batman falling through time by Darkseid during the Final Crisis and he saw the similarities between their emblems thus, he decided to turn Batman into the door that will allow him to enter Prime Earth again.
For centuries the Judas Tribe also known as the Court of the Owls manipuled events through history in order to prepare Batman to become the door for Barbatos. Their goals was to infect Batman with five metals from the Dark Multiverse sent by Barbatos and unleash the dark god upon Prime Earth and when they did, Barbatos was unleashed upon Prime Earth with seven Dark Knights that he handpicked to bring chaos on Earth.
During the invasion, Barbatos mainly hung back across Challenger Mountain in Gotham. The Batman Who Laughs would periodically update him on his allies' progress. After Barbatos's defeat by the Justice League, the dark god found himself chained at the bottom of the Dark Multiverse by the Monitor, forced to watch the World Forge burn and light anew waiting the return of the World Forger.
