On a planet in another galaxy, the leaders of a peaceful humanoid race watched in horror as the invading Black Fleet of starships destroyed world after world, moving towards the humanoids’ own solar system. The leaders of the humanoid race did not know how to cope with the approaching invaders, for their race had been pacifists for centuries. Not only had the race no weaponry for defense, but its members were so dedicated to their pacifist philosophy that they found the very idea of warring against the invaders abhorrent. Among the leaders, only Durgan the Philosopher sought a means of fighting back against the Black Fleet. He had used the race’s advanced technology to observe the superhumanly powerful beings of Earth, and wondered if somehow their powers could be turned to the service of his race.
Sometime later, a helmeted, robed figure calling himself the Chief Examiner began to appear from time to time on Earth. The Chief Examiner would observe superhumanly powerful beings in action, and attempt to lure them through a strange, floating black portal. Once inside the portal, the superhumanly powerful being would also temporarily lose his or her powers to some extent. The superhumanly powerful being would then emerge from the portal back upon Earth. The entire process would take no more than moments. The superhumanly powerful being soon thereafter would again reach his or her normal power level. However, the Chief Examiner could now duplicate that being’s powers for his own uses with his technology, having analyzed and drained part of them.
It is known that the Chief Examiner was sent to Earth by Durgan. However, the Chief Examiner’s identity remains unknown.
The Chief Examiner once encountered Kayla Ballentine, the then-girlfriend of the superhero Quasar and wielder of the vastly powerful Star Brand. Kayla, not understanding her abillities, seemingly kills the Examiner, though with the nearly unlimited extendnt of what she can do, this is not certain.
