Victory over Superman was only the beginning of Aquaman's rise to power. Uniting
the world's oceans under the banner of Atlantis, Aquaman had a controlling
interest in the planet's ecology--and economy. His influence did not escape the
attention of the world's multinational corporations, who looked to end his
reign. Villains lured by the promise of big money to assassinate the King of
Atlantis pursued him relentlessly. But Aquaman's popularity served him well. The
world's citizens rose up in anger against those who would quell Aquaman's
influence. The threat abated, a groundswell of support began for a United Earth
under Aquaman's command.
Superman's defeat did not work to Ares' advantage as he had planned. The heroes
of the parallel dimension helped this world's Batman build a conflict-free
Utopia that left the war god famished. On the brink of death, Ares managed to
imprison Brainiac 5. He forced Brainiac to create a time loop beginning with the
other dimensional heroes' arrival and ending just before their victory. In this
pocket of time, Ares flourished. Endless war was his to savor.
Superman had been a fool to believe Bane would willingly accept a subordinate
role in the One Earth Government. With the high councilor out of the way, true
leadership could begin. Bane found Sinestro and Black Adam inspiring examples of
ruthless absolute authority. They reciprocated his regards for their talents.
The three former villains regained control of the planet, and formed a ruling
triad that would be uninterrupted, until the next phase of Bane's plan.
Following the battle to liberate Earth, Batman learned that Luthor had
bequeathed his massive fortune to Bruce Wayne. He now had the means to rebuild
Gotham and Metropolis. The cities' residents, inspired by their hero's efforts,
adopted the slogan "We Are Batman." They contributed countless hours to their
communities' renovation--and crime prevention. The Batman of old would have
stubbornly assumed these tasks alone; the post-One Earth Batman, having been
rewarded for his trust in others, enjoyed his city's renewal and his role as its
The defeat of Superman taught Black Adam one thing: most of Earth's denizens
were too weak to adopt Kahndaq's visionary form of government. He returned to
his homeland with a new plan. Combining their energies, Black Adam and his
empress, Isis, created a mystical barrier around Kahndaq. There they reigned in
peace, their country an oasis in the wasteland of human civilization--a true
oasis once Black Adam had destroyed all other life on Earth.
At last, Superman had paid for what he had done to Catwoman. Feigning allegiance
to his regime had cost Selina her beloved Batman--and her best chance at
happiness. Pride and anger kept her from attempting reconciliation with Bruce
Wayne. But his inspiring reconstruction of Gotham and Metropolis fostered in her
a desire to remain close to him. Until she was ready to approach him again, she
did her part to keep Gotham's streets clear of crime. Nascent underworld
organizations had both The Bat and The Cat to fear.
After Superman's defeat, Cyborg led the assault on the Fortress of Solitude to
flush out remnants of the High Councilor's regime. The Fortress was well
defended, the battle intense. Cyborg was forced to use unfamiliar Kryptonian
tools to make repairs to his damaged cybernetics. Enhanced with the alien
technology, Cyborg found he could communicate with Superman's androids and order
them to apprehend the opposition. With his army of super androids, Cyborg will
bring justice to the world.
With Superman's Regime toppled, new governments formed to take its place. New
governments meant new customers for Deathstroke, and business was booming. Soon,
there were more assassinations to carry out, revolutions to aid, and unrest to
create than he could manage on his own. The One Earth Regime's Elite Troopers
having committed atrocities in Superman's name, had gone into hiding from a
populous bent on revenge. Impossible for most to find, but not for Deathstroke.
Recruiting these renegades, he formed the new Titans, the world's premiere
Free of Superman's control, Doomsday eradicated the remaining meta-humans. He
then manipulated technology in the abandoned Fortress of Solitude to terraform
the Earth. It soon resembled prehistoric Krypton. At last it felt like home.
After a few years of exterminating humanity at his leisure, however, Doomsday
needed a challenge. Having assimilated Superman's ability to fly, he headed for
a nearby space sector. He had heard rumors of an opponent worthy of his
attention: a Czarnian mercenary with a taste for violence. Doomsday was eager to
meet this "Lobo" in battle.
Flash had taken down the High Councilor, but the atrocities he had abetted
during Superman's regime continued to haunt him. His shame eventually drove him
into exile. Whether wishing to make further amends or simply unable to stop
himself, Flash continued to use his powers in the pursuit of justice. Rumors of
a mysterious red streak of energy that would set upon and incapacitate criminals
circulated throughout Central City. While only some deduced his true name, most
felt gratitude and affection for the new hero they called The Ghost.
After defeating Superman, Green Arrow visits his counter-part's home, Star City.
Upon his arrival, he discovers that his parallel counterpart was one of the
first to fall in the battle against Superman's regime. As a result, a memorial
was erected in his honor as a reminder to always fight oppression in all its
forms. Finding a like-minded individual in the parallel Earth, Roy Harper, who
Green Arrow promptly trained, he allowed him to become the new scarlet-clad
defender of Star City, Red Arrow.
Mere days after returning to his Earth, Green Lantern, in an event mirroring his
ascension to the Corps, witnessed the crash landing of an alien ship.
Investigating the wreckage, he encountered the pilot, who claimed to be Abin Sur.
But this Abin Sur wore no power ring, and referred to him in halting breaths as
The Almighty One. Green Lantern tried to convince the alien of their past: That
Abin Sur had named Hal Jordan his successor as the Green Lantern of Sector 2814.
But the alien died from his wounds before Green Lantern could learn more of him.
Lantern left immediately for Oa. The Guardians were his only hope of solving
The defeat of Superman filled Harley with confidence. She knew what she was
capable of, and knew what she wanted. She traveled to the visitors' Earth and
freed The Joker from prison. Returning to her world, they married in a ceremony
that set Gotham ablaze. At the reception, the cake cutting ceremony took a
gruesome turn. As her new husband playfully mashed her face into the cake, years
of abuse took its toll. Something in Harley snapped. She used the ceremonial
knife to slash Joker's throat. Still wearing her wedding gown, Harley now
resides permanently in Arkham Asylum.
Free of his brainwashing, Hawkgirl exacted revenge on the High Councilor for
murdering her husband, Hawkman. She was nevertheless sent to prison for her role
in the regime. One night she awoke hovering above her cot, glowing with eldritch
light. An instant later she stood at the bottom of a shallow crater. There she
found the source of the light: a meteorite of pure Nth-metal. As she touched it,
the meteorite sprung to life, encasing her in Nth-metal. The new armor made
Hawkgirl invincible. Her first act: vengeance against those who had helped
Superman capture Hawkman.
Though he had failed to elevate the Joker Clan's status, Joker was convinced a
similar organization could be successful in his dimension. Joker used a series
of devastating terrorist acts to frighten the populace, then convinced the more
gullible among them that he was the path to security. The new Joker Clan soon
had millions of members worldwide and committed regular anti-government attacks,
wreaking havoc on the global economy.
Killer Frost reveled in her victory--but her overconfidence betrayed her.
Seizing the opportunity, agents of S.T.A.R. Labs captured her. Their scientists
harnessed her freezing power in order to fortify the world's polar ice caps. But
S.T.A.R. Labs underestimated Frost's abilities. Turning on her captors, she
froze their facility--and eventually the entire Western Hemisphere. The
survivors now struggle to overthrow the self-proclaimed Ice Queen.
A win against this world's Superman was greatly satisfying. But its aftermath
would be sweeter still. Luthor had traveled to this dimension to convince its
residents that he was their Luthor, who had miraculously survived the High
Councilor's globally televised attack on him. Beloved before, the triumphant
Luthor was now worshipped. He was elected President of the United States--but
soon looked to further consolidate his power.
Nightwing had beaten his former boss Superman in single combat, not even Batman
had done that. his thirst for conflict grew. he began challenging anyone who
crossed his past. Nightwing's belligerence eventually drew the attention of
Sinestro. his core was always in need of new recruits, and the young human
seemed able to inspired great fear. Sinestro had his suspicions confirmed when a
yellow power ring found it's way onto Nightwing's finger.
Winning the battle with Superman cost Raven dearly. The amount of demonic energy
required overwhelmed her. After regaining consciousness, she looked around
warily. Her immediate surroundings were a hellish ruin. Nearby stood her father,
Trigon. Raven had somehow called him forth during her battle. Trigon thanked his
daughter. He then summoned an army of demons and set out to destroy the rest of
Following the events in the parallel dimension, Shazam's fellow heroes returned
home. But an alien virus contracted during the transfer created in them acute
mental instability. They turned on their fellow crime fighters in a deranged
fury. Alone and desperate, Shazam shared the power of the Word with his adopted
brothers and sisters. Their purity of heart gave them courage. The Army of
Shazam incapacitated the former heroes. Eventually they took the place of the
Justice League as primary defenders of Earth.
When Superman's One Earth regime proved to be a failure similar to his at
Korugar, Sinestro retreated to deep space to ruminate on its demise. Fear had
long seemed the most powerful of the emotions with which to bring order to the
universe. Yet it had not been enough. Desperate, Sinestro hurled the might of
the Sinestro Corps against The Life Entity, keeper of the White Power Battery.
Ultimately victorious, Sinestro now wielded the power of a White Lantern. No
adversary could possibly withstand him. The light of the Green Lantern Corps
would be the first he would extinguish.
The battle over, Grundy eluded capture and returned to his swamp to heal his
wounds. During regeneration, Grundy found he could channel the elemental force
of The Red. All animal life would bend to his rule. His increased power also
allowed him to resurrect the long-last Grey force. Now instead of ruling Earth's
creatures, he could simply destroy them. After defeating the world's heroes,
Grundy turned Earth into his version of paradise. He now rules over a grey and
Though pleased with the outcome, Superman's battle with his duplicate left him
troubled. If one Superman could go so far astray, why not another? Preventative
measures were in order. After much discussion with his fellow Justice Leaguers,
Superman ingested a remote-release Kryptonite capsule. At any sign of
instability, the Kryptonite would permeate his body, killing him. The question
of who could trigger the device was solved democratically. Each week a different
Leaguer would take possession of its remote control. Only Batman was denied a
Wonder Woman returned home to find her dimension in ruins. Aware of Superman's
despotic rule of the parallel dimension, the gods of Olympus vowed to
preemptively eliminate the meta-human scourge from their world. Under the
direction of Zeus, they hunted down and eliminated nearly all super-powered
mortals. All that remained to oppose them was Themyscira. Wonder Woman and her
Amazons fought back against the Olympians with unrelenting courage. Despite
heavy losses, Wonder Woman's forces ultimately prevailed. They took reign as the
New Olympians, ushering in an age of peace and prosperity.

Banishing his friend and former teammate Superman to the Phantom Zone was
difficult for J'onn J'onzz, but necessary. As the One Earth Regime had formed,
J'onn, ever the outsider, had chosen to watch from a distance to bide his time.
He assumed the form of an Atlantean, and served as royal archivist. Aquaman
little suspected that his trusted subject's uncanny ability to gather news of
the surface world was the result of telepathic powers. When J'onn learned that

well, leading rescue operations in Metropolis and Gotham after Superman's

adopted world, gathering the next generation of heroes to form a new Justice
