    • What a Crisis!
      The story that the Justice Lords version of Martian Manhunter uses to lure the League into his trap is also the central danger - and plotline - of the 1985 miniseries Crisis on Infinite Earths, which redefined the DC Universe's continuity. In the miniseries, a villain called the Anti-Monitor caused various parallel-Earth dimensions to collapse on each other, resulting in a single, merged Earth that contained all of the DC Universe's characters (which had previously been spread across a confusing number of alternate realities). The miniseries revised and streamlined more than fifty years of DC continuity and became a landmark event in the history of comics. In the episode, the story that the Lords' J'onn tells the League describes the same plotline: the part we can hear clearly is "...and the dimensions appear to be collapsing on each other," and as the League's Batman and MM talk over him, the Lords MM continues in the background, saying "...perhaps by combining our forces, we may be able to avert this crisis which threatens all the infinite earths and all the divergent timestreams."
