The first issue of the twelve-Issue Crisis on Infinite Earths, one of the biggest comic book events of the eighties, in which DC Comics attempted to simplify their universal continuity by creating a massive event that threatened to destroy all (and did some) of the myriad of alternate universes and earths (Earth-One, Earth-Two, Earth-Three, etc...) unless the heroes and villains across the multiverse band together to defeat the mysterious threat.

In this premier issue, the mysterious Monitor sends Harbinger to the various alternate universes to collect an unusual assortment of specific superheroes and super-villains, including Blue Beetle, Firestorm, Cyborg, and even the aging version of superman. Little is revealed as these random super-humans (and on super gorilla) are assembled on a satellite where they are unceremoniously - yet briefly - attacked by weird shadow-men. What's slowly destroying the multiverse? Who is The Monitor? And what's with the strange Pariah guy that is forced to watch every planet die? Stay tuned for more, for... The DC Universe will never be the same! ( )
