* RealLifeWritesThePlot: The reason the Anti-Monitor gets almost destroyed by Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} and redesigns his armor halfway through the series was George Perez realized that the initial design of the Anti-Monitor was really impractical when it'd come down to an actual fight (he had large, cumbersome cables running alongside his arms and his mouth is literally wired to the front of his chest), thus recreating a much more practical design.

** Marv Wolfman has stated that he had an out to bring Barry back: while running to his death in Crisis #8, he bounced around pretty much through a great number of points in time (as seen in the series itself) but during several of these "pit stops", Barry would not immediately be sent back to continue running, so long as he didn't use his super speed powers to run (as when he ran, he would randomly be picked back up and resume his death sprint. Barry would make one of these involuntary "pit stops" after the events of Crisis for an indeterminate length of time; the knowledge that any time he used his power to run, that Barry would risk abandoning his friends and family and continue onward to his death, would have a irreversible effect on Barry's personality as he realized that he he needed to enjoy what little time he had left and start enjoying life, before resuming said death sprint at any moment.

** The original idea was for the Monitor to be the BigBad, and was originally named "The Librarian".
** According to rumors, Marv wanted Earth-D, featured in ''Legends of the DC Universe: Crisis on Infinite Earths'', to be the Post-Crisis universe.
** Originally ''nobody'' was gonna remember the Crisis in #11 and 12.

** It is stated in the Absolute Crisis companion that the only reason Supergirl's death got approveded, was that the Helen Slater Supergirl movie flopped so hard and so badly, that no one at the corporate level would care that she died.

** One original idea for the ending would be the Superman of Earth-1 fighting the Anti-Monitor at the end and dying. Earth-2's Superman would then remove aging makeup, revealing that he actually had not visibly aged past adulthood. Then the original Superman would take the place as the "main" Superman again. However, this ending was rejected when Creator/JohnByrne's ''ManOfSteel'' got greenlit.
