Access can create interdimensional gateways between the Marvel and DC universes. He can also teleport to different areas in each dimension with these gateways and even go back in time. Access also has the power to combine people from each universe into an Amalgamated version.
If Access stays in one place for too long, he may accidentally create universal crossovers.
Axel Asher first became aware of his extraordinary powers when the two cosmic entities called "The Brothers," who represent the DC Comics Multiverse and Marvel Comics Multiverse, became aware of each other (as a result of the events in crossovers previously published by the companies) and hurled their respective heroes into conflict with each other's to prove their superiority over their counterpart; eleven 'champions' from each universe were selected to fight, the winner being whoever immobilised the other first- some champions were too powerful to ever conclusively defeat their opponents- and the overall winner being the side with most victories.
Axel was just a normal teenager living in New York who came across an old bum in an alley, who protected what seemed to be a cardboard box but was actually a portal between the universes. He also revealed that Axel was next in line to bear the powers and responsibilities of being "The Access," the person in charge of preventing the universes from merging into one. This happens because they were originally one universe that split in two when The Brothers first fought; certain "fragments" of the original universe remained. The "box" was one of them—Access was another.
At the height of the Brothers' battle, when the last battle had ended- with the Marvel Universe being the overall winner with six victories to five-, the universes were combined into a single Amalgam Universe by The Spectre and the Living Tribunal to avert the end of existence. Access used shards of each universe hidden inside Batman and Captain America to separate and restore both universes. Aided by Batman and Captain America who, in many ways, were the Brothers in miniature, Access helped stop the fight between The Brothers, saving the two universes from destruction when the Brothers, looking at the two heroes, realised how foolish their conflict with each other truly was.
