Earth 3 is one of the worlds of the Multiverse after Flashpoint.


Trinity Crisis/Forever Evil

Said to be the birthplace of evil; rather than "right" and "wrong", the ruthless nations of Earth 3 cared only for strength above all, the weak deserving only annihilation. This hopelessly corrupted world was thus ruled by the sadistic, unstoppable Crime Syndicate, twisted counterparts to the Justice League.

In Earth 3 performing crimes is as mundane as Prime Earth is fighting crime. And although there are laws and police, these usually only serve their own interests. Like other Earths of the Multiverse, Earth 3 features a gallery of superhumans, but these are selfish and ambitious beings, as anyone in the universe.

Darkseid War & Year of the Villain

The Crime Syndicate fled their universe from a mysterious entity of amazing power, whose abilities they could not predict. Washington, D.C. was laid waste. The Syndicate kept this secret from their allies on Prime Earth, where they claimed publicly that they had killed the population of Earth 3 in response to an uprising. In actuality, the the Anti-Monitor had destroyed Earth 3. However, recent events and adventures by the Justice League and Young Justice have revealed the populace to still be alive and the Earth inhabited again.[1] Perpetua explained that the multiverse was healing itself and had reconstructed Earth-3, also resurrecting the Crime Syndicate.[2]

Death Metal

The reborn Crime Syndicate joined the forces of Perpetua alongside other evil alternate versions of the Justice League, using Earth 3 as the site of a “Crisis Tower” to channel Crisis energy into Perpetua. However, Owlman suspected that Perpetua would not keep her promises, and also resented serving under The Batman Who Laughs, as he believed he was the true dark reflection of Batman. He learned from John Stewart that there had been multiple previous versions of the multiverse, each with it’s own Owlman and realised that as long as the multiverse survived, some version of Owlman would exist. He turned on Perpetua, murdered his fellow Syndicate members and blew up Earth 3, killing Baby Batman and the Rainbow Batman Corps.[3]

Infinite Frontier

Following the remaking of the multiverse after The Darkest Knight was defeated, Earth 3 and its population was recreated again with an altered history.[4]

In the new continuity, the Overlords of Oa reign over the universe by commanding an army of loyal followers, the Emerald Knights.

At some point in the 50s, the Kryptonian Kal-Il was sent to Earth to escape the destruction of his planet Krypton, along with his cousin, Kara: years later, after discovering his true origins, Kal-Il murdered President John F. Kennedy and, eventually, became the ruthless Ultraman. Sixty years later, Oliver Queen became the latest President of the United States of Amerika.

In modern days, metahumans grew in number and revealed themselves to the world, including Johnny Quick and Atomica: along with them, the Princess of the Amazons, Donna Troy recently left her island for the human world where she came to be known as the Superwoman while John Stewart became the second Emerald Knight of Earth.

Earth 3 was also targeted by Amanda Waller, who had previously sent the mercenary Bloodsport through the realities in order to gather informations about the Multiverse, as she was assembling a team of metahumans from many universes.

In 2021, Earth was invaded by an army of world-conquering beasts, the Starro Collective, who controlled the minds of some of the deadliest metas on the planet: however, some of them banded together to free those who were mind-controlled by the Starros so they were able to stop the invasion. In the aftermath of the assault, the cruel vigilante of Gotham City, Owlman decided to create his own team of super-powered warriors, the Crime Syndicate, in order to rule the Earth, forcing Alexander Luthor to side with Thaal Sinestro and other metas and form the Legion of Justice.
