This is the story that changed the DC Universe forever. 

A mysterious being known as the Anti-Monitor has begun a crusade across time to bring about the end of all existence. 

As alternate earths are systematically destroyed, the Monitor quickly assembles a team of super-heroes from across time and space to battle his counterpart and stop the destruction. 

DC's greatest heroes including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and Aquaman, assemble to stop the menace, but as they watch two powerful heroes Die in battle, they begin to wonder if even all of the heroes in the world can stop this destructive force. 

"Crisis On Infinite Earths" was DC Comics attempt to consolidate years of stories into a single shared universe.  Comics didn't come any bigger than this. 

"Crisis on Infinite Earths" was a 12 issue maxi-series featuring nearly every character in DC comics' 50 year history, written and drawn by two of the industry's biggest name talents: Marv Wolfman and George Perez.. 

It was a story that saw hundreds of heroes meet their deaths, worlds literally collide, and a bold streamlining of an entire line of super hero books. 

Not only the biggest event of the year, it would have ramifications for year to come, dividing DC's history into two halves dubbed Pre and Post Crisis. 

Crisis on Infinite Earths was one of the biggest events in the DCU.  It erased the DC Multiverse and rebooted many DC Heroes' origins. 

It is the mark of the end of the Silver Ages and Bronze Ages of Comic Books.
