The last incarnation of the Secret Society of Super-Villains was organized by the
Ultra-Humanite, from Earth-2. He discovered, through arcane calculations, that the
cosmic balance hinged upon the existence of ten specific heroes, who were
members of either the The Justice Society of America
or the The Justice League of America. If all ten
of said heroes were removed from the space-time continuum, then the cosmic balance
would shift, reality would re-align itself, and all the heroes from Earth-2
would no longer exist.
Toward this end, he recruited Brainwave, Rag Doll, the Monocle, the Psycho-Pirate, and the Mist into the new Secret Society. He then contacted Killer Frost on Earth-1 and had her organize three other Earth-1 crooks. He lied to this group, and claimed that all the heroes from one of the Earths would disappear, but that it was impossible to foresee which Earth would be without heroes. Then, he assigned each of the Secret Society members one of the ten heroes to neutralize.
The first part of the Ultra-Humanite's plan succeeded -- the Secret Society captured Superman, Hawkman, the Flash, Hourman, Johnny Thunder, and his Thunderbolt, from Earth-2; and Wonder Woman, Batman, Black Canary, the Atom, and Firestorm, from Earth-1. All of the heroes were imprisoned in a "cosmic-fuge" device, and sent into an inter-dimensional limbo.
Reality did align itself, and the heroes of Earth-2 blinked out of existence. In the midst of the villains' celebrations, the Earth-1 contingent realized that the Ultra-Humanite had known all along that it would be the Earth-2 heroes that would disappear, and that her group had been used. They were angry at this, but the Ultra-Humanite was ready for them, and banished them back to Earth-1.
The Earth-1 villains, wanting revenge, took great steps to journey to the inter-dimensional limbo where the heroes had been imprisoned. They released the heroes, and were immediately defeated and taken into custody. Then, the heroes all went to Earth-2 and defeated the Secret Society members still at large there. As they retreated into the same limbo where the heroes had been imprisoned, reality righted itself, and Earth-2 got its heroes back.
