"Doomworld" was the reality created by the Reverse-Flash when the Legion of Doom successfully pieced together and used the Spear of Destiny, rewriting reality to grant the ultimate desire of each member of the group.

History

Creation of a new reality

In 2017, after the Legion of Doom assembled the Spear of Destiny thanks to Heat Wave's betrayal, they desired to satisfy their greatest wishes[1] so, as a consequence, their universe was totally rewritten according to their wishes.[2]

In the new reality, the Legionaires began using the S.T.A.R. Labs as their new base, completely altering its external appearance. Its new CEO, Eobard Thawne aka Reverse Flash, assured his survival by imprisoning the Black Flash, who had been chasing him since his return from the Flashpoint timeline, in the pipeline of the Labs. He also became the most powerful man in the world, even having influence over the President of the United States of America.

Damien Darhk became Mayor of Star City with Sara Lance and Amaya Jiwe becoming his most loyal followers. He also regained his Dark Magic-based powers, being able to use them without the Kushu Idol like in the original reality, and used them to murder many of Earth's heroes, including his arch-enemy Green Arrow and the Flash, keeping their masks as trophies in a gallery.

Malcomlm Merlyn's life was completely rewritten so that his wife and son, Tommy, were still alive and his younger daughter, Thea, was devoted to him; he also regained his lost arm and company, the Merlyn Global Group.

Captain Cold and Heat Wave were now free to be thieves in Central City without the Flash around and CCPD able to arrest them. The other Legends were spared from death but had their memories were wiped out in order to avoid their reformation: Jefferson Jackson and Martin Stein became staff members in the S.T.A.R. Labs, with Jefferson being the harsh superior of Stein; Nate Heywood and Ray Palmer lived a normal life.

Rip Hunter was spared from this dark destiny and became an alcoholic who lived in an abandoned Waverider with only Gideon to make him company.

The Return of the Legends

At some point in May 2017, Felicity Smoak, who had previously become a vigilante after the death of Oliver Queen, was hunted down by Amaya and Sara and, later, killed by the latter before Darkh's eyes.

Some time later, Nate Heywood came to the S.T.A.R. Labs to meet Thawne, admitting to him he had started remembering a different timeline. Eventually, the speedster supervillain asked Snart and Rory to deal with him before he could remember their original history: however, the latter had begun doubting this new world so he chose to betray the Legion and save Nate from death.

After Darkh sent Sara and Amaya to kill the Legends, the former had her memories restored by Ray's neural weapon but Amaya managed to escape them. After warning Darkh about what happened, Amaya also had her memories restored in the aftermath of a fight between Sara and Damien Darkh who showed her his powers. Together, the two heroes escaped from the supervillain to reunite with their team.

With the Legends restored to almost full strength, this weight of this universe began creating tension within the Legion of Doom, as neither Darhk nor Merlyn trusted Reverse Flash so they decided to stage a coup.

Reached by his former team, Jax attempted to convince Professor Stein to remember his former reality while the Legends began retaliating in an attempt to regain the Spear of Destiny. Darhk and Merlyn subsequently aided them to take the Spear for themselves: however, Vixen was killed by Captain Cold and Thawne ended up throwing the Spear into his generator, destroying it beyond repair and preventing the Legends from restoring the original universe.

As a last-ditch effort, the remaining Legends used the Waverider to travel back in time to 1916 to undo the Doomworld's changes[2], eventually succeeding despite most of their past-selves being murdered during the battle.[3]

Trivia

  • After the rebirth of the Multiverse, this reality was still created (and erased) as a result of the Legion's use of the Spear of Destiny. The events seemingly unfolded in the same ways with only the Legends's Earth-Prime versions replacing their Pre-Crisis selves.[4]
  • It is implied that the Flash, Green Arrow, Ragman, Wild Dog, Black Canary, Vigilante and Spartan are deceased in this reality.
    • Interestingly enough, Black Canary was already killed by Damien Darhk. However, it is very possible that she was revived only to be killed once again by Darkh.
  • The S.T.A.R. Labs' new appearance is similar to the classic Hall of Doom, the headquarters of the Legion of Doom in various adaptations, including the Super Friends series.
  • It can presumed that Donald Trump is the President of United States of America in the rewritten reality as Thawne called his wife "Mel", a clear reference to Donald's real life wife, Melania.
  • The Dominators's invasion may have happened (and probably averted by the Legion) for some reason in this reality as Ray Palmer is shown playing a videogame whose aliens vaguely resemble the invading species.
