Superman, Batman, the Martian Manhunter, John Stewart, Starfire, and Jason Blood are summoned to New Genesis.

Metron has discovered the Anti-Life Equation is a sentient being. It seeks to enter their dimension but can only send aspects of itself. These aspects seek to create enough chaos in order to instigate the Anti-Life's passage.

The aspects are destined for Earth, Rann, Thanagar, and Xanshi. If any two of the four planets are destroyed, the Milky Way will collapse. The heroes are sent to save the planets.

Alex Jay designed the logo.

Jason Blood and the Demon had been separated in "The Demon (1987 limited series) #4."

Jack Kirby described the Anti-Life Equation as a force bequeathing those who understand it control over the wills of all sentient life.
