However, he was ready to help to rescue the last Monitor and stop the menace of the Gentry, depiste the resistance of the Retaliators of earth-8.

However, Superman discovered that Nix Uotan had been corrupted by the Gentry and he was attacking earth-8. With the help of heroes of several parallel earths, the menace of the Gentry was stopped, but not before discovering from where were all those problems being originated: earth-33.

The story is centered around the main earth's Superman, however, Calvin still plays a prominent role in this arc. A threat is coming to the main earth's Superman. Calvin needs backup and therefore he travels to other earths to form a team of "Supermen". It appears that the threat's only goal is the extinction of all Supermen. With their combined powers, they are able to beat the threat.

Wally West then intervined to go to the center of the tear where the dark matter was bleeding into earth 23, only to find the Retaliators and the Zen-Men, heroes from earth 8, who had a similar trouble in their own earth.
