Crisis on Infinite Earths #7: Pt. 62
Previously in Crisis on Infinite Earths #7…
Alex Luthor creates a tunnel to the anti-matter universe and Pariah leads a team of heroes into it to battle the Anti-Monitor…
On a double-page spread on pages 22 and 23 of Crisis on Infinite Earths #7, the heroes are stunned with the “cold, majestic grandeur” of the Anti-Monitor’s fortress.
Sensing their arrival, the Anti-Monitor orders Psycho-Pirate to use his emotion-controlling powers to make the warriors his slaves. Psycho-Pirate’s powers are drained, though, and he needs time to recharge. Therefore, the Anti-Monitor says he will take matters into his own hands.
As the heroes venture deeper into the fortress, the statuary comes to life and the heroes learn that some of their powers work differently in the anti-matter universe and… Superman of Earth-2 discovers that he bleeds. Supergirl discovers a way to get past their stone adversaries…
Superman of Earth-1 and the new Dr. Light arrive at the core of the fortress…
When the Anti-Matter emerges from the shadows to attack Superman, Supergirl hears what’s happening and races to help her cousin. She destroys the Anti-Monitor’s machines and sends him running with his tail between his legs; however, it’s at great expense and she dies in the arms of Superman.
Back on Earth, the world mourns the death of Supergirl. Carrying her body into space, Superman says.
"I live on, hurt, but not disillusioned. Sad, but still hopeful that the dreams shared by you and me and all those others…"
The Anti-Monitor needs time to heal, but has warned, “It is not yet over! I shall stand triumphant at the dawn of time!” Return next Wednesday for more Crisis on Infinite Earths to see what happens next.
