This series f one-shots depicted Tempus Fuginaut as he travels across the Dark Multiverse, attempting to find help in the upcoming crisis. Each issue featured a classic story from comic lore but told with a different slant, showing how these same scenarios played out in the Dark Universe.

This issues sees a brief but welcome return of Diana’s pre-rebirth costume.

Synopsis

Tempus Fuginaut observes a Dark Multiverse version of Infinite Crisis, where instead of Max Lord killing Ted Kord when he discovered his plans to control the world, Ted turns the tables and kills Max Lord.

Then, Ted takes control of Checkmate and use Brother One and the O.M.A.C. project to change events to prevent the upcoming Crisis while the Justice League is unaware.

Ultimately, Brother One calculates that the greatest threat to Earth are superheroes, so Ted takes steps to eliminate them.
