Synopsis for "Crisis on Earth-One!"Edit

  • Synopsis not yet written.


  • This issue features the first team-up between the Golden Age Justice Society of America and the Silver Age Justice League of America, both of which are the creations of writer Gardner Fox. This begins a series of annual team-ups between both groups which continues until Justice League of America #231. This story also expands upon the concept of the Multiverse - an ever-evolving plane of parallel dimensions where each reality contains a planet Earth, but with vast differences between them. The concept of the Multiverse was first introduced in Flash (Volume 1) #123 in a story called "The Flash of Two Worlds". In that story, Barry Allen, the Flash of mainstream Silver Age continuity traveled to the dimensional home of Jay Garrick, the Flash of Golden Age continuity. It is not until this issue that the individual dimensions are provided with name designations. The reality corresponding to Jay Garrick and the rest of the Justice Society is established as Earth-Two, whereas the reality of the Justice League is known as Earth-One.
  • The absence of Snapper Carr is explained when Green Arrow reveals that he is away at college finishing his final exams.
