Synopsis for "Crisis Between Two Earths" or "Apokolips Now!"

In battle against the three Injustice Society villains, Firestorm defeats the Shade, while Power Girl and Orion vanquish the Icicle, but the Fiddler overcomes all three long enough to return Darkseid to life. Meanwhile, the other heroes have not been idle. Super-man, the Earth-2 Wonder Woman, and Big Barda en-counter the Underground Fighters, a group of children living beneath the fortress of Granny Goodness, the training-mistress of Darkseid's elite troops. Dr. Fate, Green Lantern, and Oberon rescue Izaya (also called Highfather), the leader of the New Gods, from his Apokolips prison. Batman, Huntress, and Mr. Miracle invade Darkseid's Imperial Palace, where they uncover his plot to transport Apokolips into the universe of Earth-2 to supplant and thus destroy the homeworld of the Justice Society heroes.



Notes

  • Artist George Pérez takes over pencilling from Dick Dillin who died, age 50. Dillin had pencilled the series for a decade.
  • The participation of Superman in this story is valid under the Post-Crisis chronology, even before the changes made during Infinite Crisis that restored his status as a JLA founding member. [1]
  • Action Comics #650 retcons this story in a brief flashback but without participation of the Huntress and Wonder Woman.

Trivia

  • The title to this issue is taken from the 1979 Academy Award winning film Apocalypse Now.
