A former professor of archaeology. Faust began to dabble in the mystic arts. When his peers learned of his co-cirricular activities, Faust was shunned from the academic circles. Faust vowed revenge and spent his time going deeper and deeper into the dark magicks. Faust managed to come into contact with the Greek god of the underworld, Hades who was currently banished to the Pits of Tartarus. Living up to his namesake, Faust made a deal with Hades. In exchange for freeing Hades, Faust would receive ultimate knowledge from Hades. Faust blackmailed Wonder Woman into searching the world for relics that when joined together would from a key of sorts that would open the gates to the Pit. However, Hades was manipulating Faust the whole time and when he was briefly free he bestowed his own brand of ultimate knowledge to Faust, mortality and aged Faust to a shriveled old man. When Hades was returned to the Pit, what was left of Faust was sucked in as well. Presumably, with the power that Hades wields, Faust was given life so that he too could suffer in the Pit.

His former student Tala cast a spell to extract Faust's spirit and imprisoned him in a mirror. Faust bidded his time and used the acquisition of the Annihilator as a window to escape and get his revenge on Hades using the Annihilator. However, Wonder Woman was alerted by the gods and along with Shayera Hol, destroyed the Annihilator and left Faust to Hades.
