Synopsis:
The Antimonitor uses Psycho Pirate (whom he captured in issue 3) to control the last 3 known surviving earths' heroes: 4 (Charlton comics characters), S (Marvel family), and X (Freedom fighters), as he begins to destroy their universes while the other earths' heroes from 1 and 2 warn them about the antimatter attack. Alex Luthor Jr. nearly sacrifices his unique matter/antimatter energies to transport all 3 universes into limbo alongside Earths 1 and 2, but Harbinger stops him and uses her powers instead. All fades to black and white as we then see all 5 earths and their universes now in limbo.
