Crisis on Infinite Earths #5: Pt. 43
Previously in Infinity Inc. #21, Swamp Thing #46, and All-Star Squadron #53…
Harbinger brings the superhero attendees of Alan Scott’s wedding, as well as Johnny Quick and Liberty Belle, to Monitor’s satellite.
John Constantine transports himself and Swamp Thing to Monitor’s satellite.
In the double-page spread of pages 7 and 8 in Crisis On Infinite Earths #5, Harbinger, Alex Luthor, and Pariah speak to the multitude of heroes that have been assembled.
Harbinger says, “There is a story that must now be told.” Luthor says, “You’ve seen the destruction… you know the end is near… but you do not know why… or who was behind it. We do.” Pariah says, “…if you don’t hear us out and believe – your worlds, too, will join the others in extinction!”
Luthor continues to explain that Monitor never told him the identity of the enemy…
Luthor speaks of other planets that are affected: Rann (home of Adam Strange) and Tamaran (home of Starfire.)
Alan Scott doesn’t recognize the new Green Lantern, but asks John Stewart if the Guardians or the Corps can help them. John explains that he’s been trying to reach them, but his ring stopped working.
Having trouble reaching a consensus, Luthor says…
Return, then, to your worlds. See for yourselves the danger. But decide quickly… there is little time before the final universes perish – and before we can save what is left of ours!
What happens next?!? Return next Wednesday for more Crisis on Infinite Earths…
