McCay was friend and pastor to the former Sandman, Wesley Dodds, until he died. Dodds proclaimed an apocalyptic prophecy concerning future events involving the world's super-heroes.
McCay is saddened by this, and finds that he has inherited Dodds' visions. After he mistakenly drives his congregation away, he is contacted by the Spectre to bear witness to the events of the changing world.
While invisible to most, he becomes visible to the Justice League on one occasion when the Flash grabs him from the dimension through which he travels. He attempts to tell Superman that the apocalypse will result from their actions. Superman, however, is but confused by his appearance and refutes his warning.
At the final battle involving the Outsiders, the Justice League, and the heroes who escaped from the super-hero gulag, a nuclear bomb is dropped by the U.N. The Spectre asks McKay to pass judgement on who is in the right. McKay, recognizing that the situation is more complex than simply right or wrong, sees an alternative.
As Superman rages at the U.N., McCay reaches him and, informing him of the few survivors and calling attention to the fact that conflict arises when superhumans separate themselves from humans, convinces Superman to choose the correct path.
