Almerac, Justice League
Oldest child of the Royal family of the planet Almerac, Maxima was a princess used to getting what she wanted. She decided that she wanted Superman, as he a suitable mate, capable of being her equal. She and Superman are genetically compatible; she could give him what no Earth woman could – children. He turned her down saying he had no desire to father despots. She then went on a rampage for a short while. She came back later to ask for help for her homeworld.
Although Maxima feels herself superior to Earthlings, she joined the Justice League to battle Brainiac who had destroyed Almerac with the WarWorld and helped in the fight against Doomsday. She offered herself to Superman again, hoping that her recent good deeds would offset her earlier ruthlessness.
Superman, now married to Lois Lane, was even less interested in her proposal than before. Angry and humiliated, she joined the Superman Revenge Squad. She swore that Superman had rejected, humbled and humilated her for the last time, and threatened that the next they met, it would truly be war. However, recently Maxima and the ‘Chosen People of Almerac’, as she phrased it, showed up in Earth’s solar system where they met up with Superman and fellow JLA member, Green Lantern. Superman and Green Lantern were just beginning to investigate the disturbing disappearance of Pluto and the even more distressing engine ion trail associated with Warworld, when they stumbled across Maxima, her people, and Massacre.
After a battle full of wounded pride, Maxima eventually conceded her position when Almerac’s rendezvous showed up using a Boom Tube. She explained that she was leading her people to safety from Imperiex, the force that conquered her world.
To save her people she allied herself with Darkseid’s son, Grayven, who was taking them to regions unknown. This was also being undertaken without the knowledge of Darkseid. Maxima left Superman with these words: “Mark my words, when Imperiex comes for your precious homeworld, you’ll see alliances you’ve never dreamed of.”
All that Maxima warned eventually came to fruition as she and a miriad of other characters formed alliances with Earth and Apokolips in an effort to destroy Imperiex.
