Interestingly, although barely featured in this issue which depicts almost every single hero in the DC Universe at that time, it is Wonder Woman who is featured the most prominently on the cover.

Synopsis

Both Earths 1 and 2 have been consigned to a limbo created from the Monitor’s last available energies before he died (as seen in issue 4). His foe wonders why he hasn’t received those worlds’ energies into himself like he did all the others that he’s destroyed, but no matter – he still has 3 more worlds to destroy, and reveals himself to a captured Flash.
