A man known as Pariah is destined to watch helplessly as he is drawn from one Earth to another to watch as a wave of anti-matter destroys their universes. Earth-3's universe is the next to fall to the anti-matter wave and the Crime Syndicate is helpless to stop it. Meanwhile, the Monitor orders Lyla to become Harbinger to gather heroes and villains. Taken to the Monitor's satellite, these heroes and villains are attacked by shadow demons until the Monitor drives them away.
