Synopsis
The final battle between the Anti-Monitor and the heroes begins on two fronts: one on Earth, the other in the anti-matter universe. After great loss and suffering on both fronts, the Superman of Earth-2 delivers the final blow to the Anti-Monitor and goes into a limbo alongside Superboy of Earth-Prime, his wife Lois Lane Kent of Earth-2, and Alex Luthor Jr. of Earth-3.

Indexer Notes

The deaths of Robin of Earth-2 and the Huntress are not confirmed until the Last Days of Justice Society Special (DC, 1986 series) #1. Wonder Woman of Earth-1 is devolved into clay by a weakened anti-matter blast from the Anti-Monitor and her history is subsequently erased backwards through time per the Legend of Wonder Woman (DC, 1986 series). Kid Flash takes on the mantle of The Flash, though he is said to be limited to three times the speed of sound. The only persons who remember the multiverse are Roger Hayden (the Psycho Pirate), Pariah, Harbinger, and Lady Quark.
