Crisis on Infinite Earths was a twelve-issue limited series written by Marv Wolfman and pencilled by George Pérez. It was a seminal event for DC Comics which effectively negated the previous continuity supplied during the publishing eras known as the Golden Age, Silver Age and Bronze Age of comics. The series featured virtually every known character in the DC Universe and culminated in the deaths of several key characters including Wonder Woman and Supergirl. In 2006, a sequel series entitled Infinite Crisis illustrated the ramifications wrought by the events chronicled in the original Crisis series.

Synopsis

The beginnings of Earth-1’s, Earth-2’s, and an unnamed Earth’s destruction are at hand as antimatter begins to engulf each world. Harbinger (possessed by the shadow demon in issue 2) attacks the Monitor and kills him as Pariah arrives in shock to see his dead body. But that was what the Monitor needed in order to carry out his plan to save two earths from his foe
