Fictional character biography[edit]

Chroma interrupts a televised concert with a song about apacolyptic events. The song, though talking about death, somehow proves so enganging, many people desire to hear it again and again.

Not everyone is affected in the same way. Obsidian, one of the 'Infinitors', having just come off a bad date, finds himself uninvolved with the song. Wishing to confront Chroma, he finds himself battling his own friends. He manages to stop Chroma but is in turn, stopped personally by his very own super-powered sister Jade.

It turns out Chroma is one of many duplicates of the same entity who tests out their apocalypse songs on many worlds. Obsidian manages to defeat him in their first confrontation, though Chroma claims it was because his attentions were diverted to another event happening on the far from the galaxy.

Chroma further states that if Obsidian had managed to attack him a second time, Chroma would have let this earth-form die, thus preventing humanity from ever forgetting his song.

Chroma decides to leave for a million years, in which he will return with a new song.

In Justice Society of America (vol. 3) #10, Chroma is slain by Gog, a being responsible for the death of former Teen Titan villain Goth. Gog's desires is to kill all self-proclaimed false gods to make way for himself. In the following issue, his death is investigated by the F.B.I.. An agent who touches the body has his hair go white and he becomes deaf and blind.
