Because of the holes in continuity it left behind, ''Crisis on Infinite Earths'' has spawned several CrisisCrossover sequels that have attempted, with varying success, to make sense of the mess. These include 1994's ''[[ComicBook/ZeroHour Zero Hour: Crisis in Time]]'', 2006's ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', 2007's ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'', 2008's ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'', and 2009's ''ComicBook/BlackestNight''. Much of the Creator/GeoffJohns era as head creative mind for GreenLantern also ties in directly with Crisis (specifically the Anti-Monitor). The in-universe ramifications of the Crisis were also a recurring theme of the late-'80s MindScrew series ''Comicbook/AnimalMan''. Much of its imagery and backstory was referenced in ''ComicBook/JLAAvengers''.

''ComicBook/{{Legends}}'' can be seen as an epilogue, as it allowed the new DCU to introduce themselves to each other; for example, it was the introduction of a late-teenage ComicBook/WonderWoman to the other DC heroes.

** If you were from Earth-Two with an exact counterpart on Earth-One, you were screwed.

to:

** If you were from Earth-Two with an exact counterpart on Earth-One, you were screwed. In some cases the Earth-Two version was retconned out of existence, in some cases they merged into a composite with some of the traits of the Earth-Two version and some of the traits of the Earth-One version. For cases where the Earth-Two and Earth-One versions of the heroes were different people (such as Green Lantern and Flash), since the Earth-Two heroes were significantly older (many of them fought in World War Two), the ones that made it through mostly became advisors/mentors to their modern counterparts (who ''should'' "only" be old enough to have fought in Vietnam or Korea, but ComicBookTime).

* ContinuityReboot: The Crisis' ending was essentially a reboot with an in-universe explanation. The most obvious are ''ComicBook/TheManOfSteel'', ''ComicBook/BatmanYearOne'', ''ComicBook/WonderWoman: Gods and Mortals'', ''The Legend of Comicbook/{{Aquaman}}'', ''ComicBook/CaptainAtom'', and ''ComicBook/{{Shazam}}: A New Beginning''/''The Power of Shazam!''. ''Franchise/GreenLantern: Emerald Dawn'' came a few years later.
