Synopsis for "Infinite Evil"
Darkseid has offered various people around the Multiverse a deal: if they align with him, he will protect their worlds from the coming Crisis. Director Bones agreed to hand over heroes on Earth 0 who originally come from other realities so Darkseid can harness their multiversal energy, while the members of Injustice Incarnate will serve as soldiers.
On Earth Omega, everyone emerges from the crashed Carrier Arks and reunites. X-Tract tells them that they are stranded without the Carrier Arks, and reveals she is the Cameron Chase of the original Earth-Two. They see Barry Allen running in the turbine and when Green Lantern asks X-Tract what is happening, the Psycho-Pirate appears and explains that they will use Barry, the first person to ever cross from one world to another, to crack open the Multiverse, allowing Darkseid access to the power beyond. He opens a portal to summon Injustice Incarnate, along with the imprisoned members of Justice Incarnate, and the two sides battle.
The villains overpower the heroes until President Superman breaks free of his chains and flies towards the turbine. He is stopped by Machinehead, who tells him that Earth 0 is a danger to the multiverse, as every Crisis originates there. He attacks Superman with his one weakness, Meta-Nite, and reveals that the Flashpoint not only affected the history of Earth 0, but also damaged Earth 8. As such, he personally wants revenge against Barry and Thomas Wayne.
Chains of dark energy emerge from the planet's surface, binding the heroes and stretching into space as the other Earths of the multiverse appear in the sky. With them, Darkseid will seal all worlds off from each other, and the multiverse will slow to a state of entropy. Psycho-Pirate offers Roy Harper a deal, if he surrenders to the ring and joins Darkseid, they will leave Earth 0 alone and Lian will be safe. Roy realises that Lian is not on Earth Omega as he assumed and uses the ring to free the other heroes. He asks them all to save the Multiverse and Lian as the ring takes control. They attack the Psycho-Pirate, but Darkseid emerges from a Boom Tube, telling them that with Roy under his control, he now commands all reality.
