And the heroes wake up the next morning on Earth. It's apparently Earth-1, and some of the heroes from other universes landed here. And the Multiverse no longer exists. And everyone remembers the heroes, even the ones that were from other Earths, being here all along. [[TimeyWimeyBall And the heroes remember the Multiverse, but no one else does, except for Psycho Pirate.]] It appears that it was AllJustADream - but then the Anti-Monitor tries to destroy reality one last time. So the Comicbook/{{Superman}} [[BadassGrandpa from Earth-2]] [[TookALevelInBadass takes a level in Badass]], screams "I HAVE HAD ENOUGH!" [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu and punches the Anti-Monitor so hard that the Anti-Monitor]] [[YourHeadAsplode ceases to exist]]. Cue ''another'' EarthShatteringKaboom. Now ''nobody'' remembers the Multiverse, except for poor Psycho Pirate, who ended up locked in Arkham Asylum, raving about "how worlds lived, worlds died... nothing will ever be the same"... The End.

** Earth-Prime, DC Comics' analog of "the real world", from which ComicBook/SuperboyPrime came, seen mostly in the ''Superman'' title tie-in stories.

* EpicMovie: Well, an Epic ''Comic'' actually, but contains many of the same elements of the genre of film. It features the ''entire'' DCComics Superhero library and even those from [[Creator/CharltonComics Charlton]] and FawcettComics (whom were bought out by DC and now are part of their lineup) battling a foe that threatens existence itself on a cosmic level in a story that spans all of space and all of time. Every hero is pushed to their limits; Some will live while others will die, [[spoiler: most notably Supergirl and Barry Allen]]. And indeed, [[ArcWords "Nothing will ever be the same"]]. One Hell of a way to celebrate 50 Years, DC.

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. Much of the Creator/GeoffJohns era as head creative mind for GreenLantern also ties in directly with Crisis (specifically the Anti-Monitor).

** 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).
