Earth-Three is a mirror image of Earth-One, with historical events happening in reverse to what happened there and with a team of super-villains as it's Justice League analogue, called the Crime Syndicate of America.

Earth-Three only had one superhero, Alexander Luthor, who attempted to fight back against the CSA. This original version would remain until Crisis on Infinite Earths wiped out the DC multiverse.

Although the Crime Syndicate appeared in various forms after this, Earth-3 wouldn't reappear until the multiverse was revealed in 52 Weeks to have been recreated at the end of Infinite Crisis. This version had the Crime Society of America, and was an inverted version of Earth-2. This Earth had more heroes, including heroic versions of the Joker and the Riddler.

Post-Flashpoint, Earth-3 was reintroduced at the end of Trinity War, and was the primarily shown in Forever Evil. It is shown to have a reversed geography compared to Prime Earth, and is said to be where true evil originated. It's signature super-villain team was simply called the Crime Syndicate here, and featured new members such as Atomica and Deathstorm. It had a heroic Joker, and a Alexander Luthor/Shazam hybrid called Mazahs. This version was decimated by the Anti-Monitor.
