Death is coming. Worse than death: oblivion. Not just for our Earth, but for everyone, everywhere, in every universe! Against this ultimate destruction, the mysterious Monitor has gathered the greatest team of Super Heroes ever assembled. But what can the combined might of Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern and hundreds of Super Heroes from multiple Earths even do to save all of reality from an unstoppable antimatter armageddon?!


Crisis on Infinite Earths was originally a crossover storyline that ran in DC comics between 1985 – 1986. The series, written by Marv Wolfman and penciled by George Perez, was first serialized as a 12-issue limited series. Some of the plot elements were featured in tie-in issues of other titles.

The idea came from Wolfman’s desire to abandon the DC Multiverse depicted in DC Comics, which Wolfman thought was too complex and messy for their readers, and create a single unified DC Universe. The storyline is marked by a death count that boggles the mind. Hundreds of characters died, including Kara Zor-El (the original Supergirl) and Barry Allen (the Flash of the Silver Age). The story’s events resulted in the entire DCU being divided into pre-Crisis and post-Crisis eras.

It isn’t clear yet exactly how much of the original 12 part series will be incorporated into this new film, but it looks like it’s both action packed and brain-bending.

Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths Part One is available now as digital content.
