All of Superman's powers.
All of Superman's weaknesses.
Lieutenant Clark Kent was a successful astronaut who was the darling of the United States of Amerika's space program of the Earth located in the antimatter universe of Qward. Kent was well known and followed around by the notable reporter Lois Lane who tracked his space farring exploits until he was lost on one of his space travels. He would later marry Lane who was revealed to be the super powered Amazon, Super-Woman.
Kent was supposedly saved from a fiery death on his crashing space shuttle by benevolent aliens who reformed his body into the powerhouse that it now is. Later history states that Kent was kidnapped by an unspecified groups of aliens who had encountered Kent and decided to use the expendable Kent as a test animal for their weapons program. Kent was converted into a living power converter using Anti-Kryptonite as the base source. The aliens had succeeded in their plans of creating a living weapon, far exceeding their expected power levels.
Unfortunately for the aliens, before Kent could be controlled after being powered, Kent mastered his emerging talents and killed his captors. The now superpowered Kent returned to Earth where he began his reign as superpowered Ultraman and began a life of conquerance of his home Earth.
As Ultraman, Kent would inspire other powered beings to follow in his wake where they would form the Crime Syndicate and begin the process of ruling their planet.
At some point, Ultraman came to encounter an Ultra-Dog called Neutro, which for some reason he put to sleep.
It would be the result of Ultraman and his ruthless domination of their native dimension Earth that would cause that reality's Lex Luthor to rise up to protect his world from the repression of Ultraman and his associates in the Crime Syndicate of Amerika. Luthor's plan would result in the first cross Earth meeting where the Crime Syndicate would engage in battle against the Justice League before they were returned to the their Earth for fear of losing their home base to the social attitudes of those native to the Justice League's Earth.
Luthor's plan initially failed to defeat the Crime Syndicate as his entire world basically accepts the Crime Syndicate as a legitimate entity. But Luthor succeeded in gathering new powered beings to oppose the Crime Syndicate. Most of these beings would reflect the criminal populace of the Justice League such as Sir Solomon Grundy and others.
Arriving to Superman's Fortress through the Anti-Phantom Zone, Ultraman, alongside Owlman and Superwoman, were behind the Super-Baby under Superman's protection with the intention of killing him, but when the infant was finally in their possession they discovered it was no ordinary child.
The baby revealed itself to be the antimatter Brainiac who became ultrapowerful by fusing with Ultraman's DNA. Planning to destroy both matter and antimatter worlds, Owlman used a bluff to scare Brainiac saying he had the means to destroy Ultraman and anyone with his power, greatly enraging the ultravillian. With Brainiac murdered by his wife, Ultraman and his allies returned to their world.
JLA VS CSA
Ultraman's Crime Syndicate was once again the dominating force on their world with little to no opposition from anyone, suffering once again from boredom. Luckily for them, Power Ring found a place on their universe were they could find powerful beings to fight and kill, none other than Qward itself. Devastating the planet just for fun, the Syndicate battles until a mysterious event of sorts reshapes reality somehow, reversing time as well. Investigating the nature off the cataclysm, the Syndicate discovers that it was a matter-based wave, so they decide to invade the Earth of the League undercover, swapping their places with their matter counterparts and disguising like them.
Trying to get information posing as Superman, Ultraman was having trouble as virtually no one was afraid of him, thus nobody had an inherent desire to obey him. That, plus the people's admiration over Superman caused Ultraman to finally lose it. Encountering and clashing against Superman, Ultraman nearly defeated the Kryptonian and joined his allies on their battle, easily overpowering the League and forcing them to flee, leaving the world for them to take.
Deciding to stay, Ultraman and his Syndicate captured slaves in order to build a citadel, thus the League banded a group of reinforcements which successfully repelled the Syndicate and drove them to abandon Earth to look for the Justice League. Watching how the Qwardians destroy the League, the Syndicate was planning on letting them kill each other and take down the one left standing. But their fun was short as the Qwardians redirected their wrath against them and their world, forcing them to return there. Unable to defeat the Qwardians, the League was willing to help them if they asked them too, and besides Ultraman's objection, Superwoman asked them the favor, now owing them. After their victory over the Qwardians, Owlman sent the League back to their world and discovered that theirs was now full of chaos, with all their world rebelling against them.
Some time after Qward's invasion, the Crime Syndicate begun a massive abduction of the several Earths' populace in order to gain slaves to rebuild their own wounded world. After the Justice League arrived to the antimatter Earth, the Syndicate arrived and confronted them with a hostage. Welcoming them, Ultraman told the League that they were willing to peacefully deal with them since they owe them a favor, but besides their newfound "respect", they still went to the point of threatening the life of their hostage if they didn't comply to their demands, thus forcing Superman to accept the deal.
Waiting for the League on their agreed meeting place, Ultraman and his Syndicate saw Superman arriving alone. When offering to release the people from their world to return the favor, Superman enraged to the offer of saving only their world and fought them all at once. Overwhelming Superman, the League arrived to support but they too were expected by the Syndicate who managed to turn the battle on their favor. However, Superman's gaining control over his senses gave him the skill he needed to overwhelm his foes and trap them on their own dimensional trap. Confined by Superwoman's Lasso, Ultraman revealed his enemies the true nature of their device before Superman activated it to banish him, Superwoman and Owlman to the interdimensiomal void.
Ultraman and his allies were eventually set free and returned to their home Earth.
Unknown to them, Alexander Luthor planted a matter-bomb on their world that would trigger in order to caught the Crime Syndicate off-guard with no way to defend themselves against it. Unable to stop the spreading destruction, the matter wave destroyed a quarter of their world before they could find a way to transport it to another world.
Allowing the wave to consume that world, the Syndicate followed its last survivor, Green Lantern, to New Earth.
Deciding to remain with a low profile, Ultraman suggested that they forget their own world and instead conquer this one, but Owlman was against it. Receiving news of the Justice League discovering their arrival, they left their low profile and went straight ahead against the League. Ultraman clashed against Supergirl until she was needed elsewhere and watched with indifference the display of power of the Omega Man.
Witnessing the Omega Man's power, Ultraman apparently double-crossed the Syndicate and sided with him. Tired of his native Earth, Ultraman decided to help the Omega Man rule this Earth and destroy his old teammates. Watching his wife being beated by another amazon, Ultraman and the now evil Supergirl were waiting for the Omega Man's device to be completed so they could conquer the world, revealing that his' and the Syndicate's actions were a ruse to trick the League into helping them. However, turns out the League, too, was playing a ruse and tricked the Crime Syndicate to trap them and the Omega Man into the Multiverse.
