Needless to say, in order to fully appreciate ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', [[ContinuityPorn you'd better have done your research, especially with the tie-ins]] as all of the above would eventually become more important later on. Worlds lived, worlds died (the same could be said of ''many'' characters), and the DC Universe was never the same... literally, as it was later revealed, due to the events of Infinite Crisis, [[spoiler: TheMultiverse was brought back, albeit with a definite number]]. Later references would call this event the "middle Crisis"; part of a saga that started with ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', and ran through ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis''. [[spoiler: The Multiverse]] and the fate of it and many of the DC superheroes characters (read: plotlines) were later revealed and concluded in the immediate sequel, ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo''.

The survivors of the Multiverse, [[ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths Alexander Luthor Jr]], [[Franchise/{{Superman}} the Golden Age Superman (Kal-L)]], ComicBook/SuperboyPrime, and [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Lois]] [[ComicBook/LoisLane Lane]] entered a "[[PocketDimension paradise dimension]]" at the end of the Crisis, but were able to watch the new Earth. As time went on, they were disappointed by the growing cynicism in the universe and Prime and Luthor began to plan to replace the Earth with a better one. Kal-L agreed, but was more attentive to his dying wife, which Prime and Luthor used to break free from their dimension and enter Earth. Due to Superboy-Prime's punching of the barriers of the dimension, [[RetCon several things changed without explanation]]. While Prime manipulated events in space, Luthor stayed on Earth and disguised himself as the regular Lex to form a Secret Society of Villains ([[ChekhovsGunman sans]] SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker) and even recruited the treacherous Psycho-Pirate from [[ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths the original Crisis]]. When another hero, Pariah, who was instrumental in the fight with the Anti-Monitor, came to warn Lex Luthor of a coming danger, [[MoralEventHorizon Alexander Luthor killed him]].

** In the second issue, SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker is pissed off that he wasn't invited into the Society by Alexander for being too crazy and unpredictable. In the last issue, [[spoiler: he kills Alexander in an alleyway as revenge]].

* TheStarscream: In a straight-up subversion, Alexander Luthor knew that it is generally impossible for ''anybody'' to control somebody that's as [[AxCrazy insane]] as SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker so he did not even try. The Joker was VERY unhappy that he was not picked for the team as Luthor eventually found out.

* IgnoredEpiphany: Alexander Luthor's plan required to keep Kal-L in the dark for as long as possible. It never crossed his mind that if he needed to hide his real intentions from Earth-Two ''Superman'', then maybe he is not what one would call a hero.
