Synopsis
Flash [Barry Allen] sacrificed his life so that the 5 universes could live, but the villains, led by Lex Luthor (Earth-1) and Brainiac, attempt to take control of all 5 universes by attacking the weaker of the 5: 4, S, and X. The remaining 2 universes, 1 and 2, then send their heroes to combat this menace. Meanwhile, a splinter group of six Guardians gives Guy Gardner a power ring, though five of them appear to die.
