Final Crisis | Comics

The Fourth World is diminished and the "Death of the New Gods" did not stop the eternal war between Apokolips and New Genesis. The God of Evil, Darkseid travels to time after the final conflict of New Gods and upon gaining his most precious Anti-Life Equation, he reaches to Earth. Here his consciousness has taken abode in a human body that starts running "Dark Side Club" in Blüdhaven. He becomes a leader of a criminal gang and now going by the name "Boss Dark Side".

While investigating a case of a few missing kids, Detective Dan Turpin finds a dying Orion of the New Gods and the sky turns red. Hal Jordan and John Stewart go to the docs and alert the Guardians of the Universe about this incident. It is eventually discovered that a radiated bullet was fired backwards from future to kill Orion by an anonymous person. Batman and Green Lantern, Alan Scott is engaged in an exploration regarding Orion's murder mystery that puts them both out of picture.

Final Crisis | Comics

Doctor Light and Mirror Master attacked the League of Titans to obtain Metron's Mobius Chair for Libra. Libra, an agent and minion of Darkseid, is sent to escort escaped villains from the prison planet "Salvation Run" to re-form Secret Society of Super Villains. He managed to capture and then murder Justice League member Martian Manhunter upon encountering him during the operation. Dan Turpin kept looking for answers that led him to Boss Dark Side and Darkseid's consciousness took over his body.

Nix Uotan, the Monitor of Earth-51 is standing trial and the Multiversal race of Monitors sentenced him a human existence on New Earth, while this helps Solomon's own agenda. To face the fallen Monitor Dax Novu, Superman and a bunch of his alternate-selves were called in for help. Dax would become Mandrakk the Dark Monitor and he is a threat because like the celestial parasites their race is, he will feed off the Multiverse itself.

Looking for Secret Society's hideout, The Flashes Jay Garrick and Wally West finds the Mobius Chair, which opens a Boom Tube. They surprisingly witness as the Radion Bullet comes through the portal, followed by Barry Allen and the Black Racer on his tail. Frankenstein leads a S.H.A.D.E. strike team at Dark Side Club, while the Evil Factory in Blüdhaven was preparing a body for Kalibak. Wonder Woman came across Mary Marvel, who turned evil and exposed her to Morticoccus virus.

With the aid of Darkseid's much desired "Anti-Life Equation", a major change in the scenario happens worldwide. Seeing this, Batman plans to use the radiation bullet to finally take down Darkseid by breaking his Oath against using guns for a greater good. He does so but only mortally wounding the Dark God before being blasted with powerful Omega Beams that disintegrated him. A seeming demise of The Dark Knight before the arrival of Superman struck everyone down with awe.

"Final Crisis" is a follow-up crossover comic-book event to "Infinite Crisis", concluded from its prequel and seemingly the last of line of Crisis titled events by DC Comics. This event took place in 2008, when writer Grant Morrison (All-Star Superman, Doom Patrol) came up with the core idea of the story along with artist Carlos Pacheco (Bishop, Inhumans) and Doug Mahnke (Justice League Elite, Major Bummer) to envision the plot. Major DC characters like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman remained the primary focus of the story as well as threats as great as Darkseid and Mandrakk the Dark Monitor.

Till date, "Final Crisis" is considered as one of the most important crossover events of DC Comics in the modern era that has changed major status-quo of DC Universe's timeline with the demise of a few popular protagonists and it is the last major event that took place before the historical "Blackest Night" event. Though the event took place in the New Earth reality, following the reality-altering "Flashpoint" event, "Final Crisis" has been referenced a couple of time in The New 52 Universe.
