Synopsis for "Bart Saves the Universe"
Extant tricks the Linear Men into saving the life of Dr. Garnet Edwards, who was supposed to die. But when he didn't die, he created a doomsday weapon that was tested in outer space and proved so powerful that it threw off the Earth's orbit just enough to create a world without Green Lantern, the Flash or Superman.
Because he's from the future, Impulse is immune to Extant's powers and is the only hero who recognizes the world has been changed. It's up to Bart to travel back in time and stop Extant.
