''Zero Hour'' resulted in a few significant changes to TheDCU, most notably the introduction of the "post-boot" ComicBook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}. It also spawned a few SpinOff series, ranging from the awful ''Fate'' and ''Manhunter'', to the [[SoOkayItsAverage aggressively mediocre]] ''Primal Force'' and ''Xenobrood'', to the critically-acclaimed and long-running ''Comicbook/{{Starman}}''.

In the end, ''Zero Hour'' hasn't been forgotten by DC--it remains in continuity, or at least it did until the ComicBook/{{New 52}} --but its events have been swept under the rug and mostly reversed. The problems it introduced were among the factors that led to the next CosmicRetcon of TheDCU and the first "proper" sequel to ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', 2005's ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis''.

At first, the villain of the piece appears to be Extant, formerly the hero known as Hawk, who had been the BigBad of an earlier CrisisCrossover, ''Armageddon 2001''. However, it turns out that Extant was actually working on the orders of none other than the former Comicbook/GreenLantern Hal Jordan, aka Parallax, who had gone mad with grief after the destruction of his home of Coast City. Parallax wanted to remake the universe in his image to prevent Coast City's destruction and other tragedies. His former comrades, deciding that a better universe isn't worth the destruction of the old one, fight Parallax and defeat him, triggering a new Big Bang and restoring the timeline--with a few differences.
