Earth-Three’s future is ruled by the Cabal of Super-Criminals, but for the first time a hero might just challenge them! And it will take a voyage through time and to a parallel universe to transform Urthlo 5, the last descendant of Alexander Luthor, into the Defender! Guest starring the Faultless Five, the Crime Syndicate of America, and the Adult Legion of Super-Heroes!
With the heavy-hitters in the Crime Syndicate now trapped and effectively imprisoned in Suspendium on the moon, the remaining members decide to continue on with a lower profile after taking on a new member called the Silk Canary. But when the original Crime Syndicators return as crime-fighters, their former allies are left wondering what happened to them and what this mysterious Illumino has to do with it. Can Doctor Chaos free his allies from Illumino’s control with the help of the Dark Stranger? Meanwhile, on the planet Rann, the very much alive Alexander Luthor and Lady Shrike learn that they were kidnapped from the Earth by an alien scientist named Ranjar Ro to free the planet Rann from its tyrant — the Earthman Alec Strange. Will Luthor be able to free Rann from Strange’s control and return to Earth before Lady Shrike can betray him?
In the wake of Alexander Luthor’s apparent death, the Crime Syndicate rejoices. But their glee is short-lived as the brilliant Dr. Thaddeus Atlanta, world’s kindest scientist, assembles his Monster Society of Good to combat them. Can even the powerful Crime Syndicate withstand an attack by the Monster Society? Introducing the icy Frost Queen, the man-monster named Hiram Goldman, the shark-like Great White, the energy-man Triple-X, the strongwoman named Giganta, and the werewolf called She-Wolf.
For years, an evil mutant named Adam Blake has manipulated the world’s governments from secret, using his amazing telepathic and telekinetic powers. After years of planning, he sets his Brethren of Mutants against the Crime Syndicate, intending to take them down along with anyone else he deems a threat. But with the fate of the human race hanging in the balance, will the Syndicate be able to save their own skins and stop the Brethren? Featuring the debut of the mutants known as Centigrade, Excelsior, Storm, and the mysterious Joshua.
Alexander Luthor and his assistant Brainiac have invented a weapon that has the power to defeat the Crime Syndicate once and for all. But even with all of the Syndicate’s powers at its disposal, can the synthezoid known as Amazo finally bring freedom to Earth-Three? And how can Luthor avoid the deadly fate that his precognitive sister Lena has predicted will happen to him?
After so many years of the Crime Syndicate terrorizing Earth-Three, Alexander Luthor has had enough. Reasoning that heroic counterparts of Earth-One and Earth-Two villains must exist on Earth-Three, Luthor seeks them out and builds a Secret Society of Super-Heroes. But when the Syndicate learns of the existence of several new super-heroes, they respond by adding new super-villains to their team. Will the novice heroes of the Secret Society have what it takes to beat the bad guys? Featuring the debut of the super-heroes known as the Clown, Yellow Flame, the Lynx, and Doctor Shadow, and the super-villains known as Doctor Chaos, Sundown, Deadeye, and Rubberneck.

Featuring the debut of Luthor’s psychic sister Lena, his android assistant Brainiac, and two new members of the Crime Syndicate: Microbe and the Martian Murderer.
