The heroes learn through the Spectre that the multiverse is about to be destroyed by the Anti-Monitor at the dawn of time via the antimatter universe. 2 groups have been formed: Heroes to stop the Anti-Monitor's plans, Villains to stop Krona from peering into his special mirror (as seen in Crisis 7). Both groups almost fail (villains by Krona's hand, heroes by the Anti-Monitor), but the Spectre arrives to fight the Anti-Monitor. An enormous explosion of the universe takes place as the Spectre/Anti-Monitor battle. To be continued...?
