  Crisis on Infinite Earths - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Crisis on Infinite Earths was a 12-issue comic book limited series (identified as a "12 part maxi-series") and crossover event, produced by DC Comics in 1985 in order to simplify their fifty-year-old continuity.
The term "Crisis" was a word used frequently in DC Comics of the time, as it denoted an inter-dimensional crossover, such as the yearly Justice League/Justice Society crossovers that began with "Crisis on Earth-Two".
Crisis was used by DC as an opportunity to wipe much of its slate clean and make major changes to many of their major revenue-generating comic book series.

 Infinite Crisis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Infinite Crisis was a sequel to DC's 1985 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths.
The 2004 limited series Identity Crisis was not originally labeled as part of the story, but the Prelude to Infinite Crisis special later labeled it as a tie-in.
Countdown to Infinite Crisis was followed by four six-issue limited series: The OMAC Project, Rann-Thanagar War, Day of Vengeance, and Villains United, as well as a four-part limited series DC Special featuring the return of Donna Troy.

 Earth 2 Superman — Crisis On Infinite Earths
Earth 2 Superman Crisis On Infinite Earths
Crisis on Infinite Earths is a much loved series so I would expect that the figure line would get the same treatment, especially with characters we may only see done once in plastic form.
Earth 2 Superman is no exception and I am sure it will be very soon that it won’t be on the shelves for long, especially with his popularity increase since Infinite Crisis.

 The Greatest Comics - Crisis on Infinite Earths #1   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Not only was it the starting point for the re-introduction of every major DC character, it also marked the beginning of a universe in which major heroes died and stayed dead, millions of lives could be snuffed out on a whim, and a hero's life could be dramatically changed without warning.
The slate was wiped clean by the actions in Crisis, and a new generation of DC writers and artists were eager to make their own mark upon it.
Crisis also caught the attention of the mainstream media, who for the most part saw comics as juvenile entertainment.

 Crisis on Infinite Earths
Crisis on Infinite Earths was a twelve-issue comic book limited series (or maxiseries) and crossover event, produced by DC Comics in 1985 in order to simplify their fifty-year-old continuity.
Also, Infinite Crisis appears to be an attempt to address the perception on the part of some that the DC Universe, and comics in general, has become too dark and "gritty".
Crisis (along with other crossovers and "event" comics of the period) was parodied by Simpsons Comics' Radioactive Man series: Radioactive Man #679 (Sept 1994), entitled "Who Washes The Washmen's Infinite Secrets Of Legendary Crossover Knight Wars?" by Steve Vance.

Crisis on Infinite Earths wasn't the first Crisis in the DCU, but it became the single defining event in the long history of the publishing giant.

Crisis on Infinite Earths is a crucial turning point for DC Comics.

 Crisis on Infinite Earths
Due to the nature of the story, fans and readers were kept literally on the edge of their seats as they had no way to know whether or not their favourite characters would make it through the series unscathed.
As such, Crisis on Infinite Earths was devised as a way to clear the confusion by streamlining every thing into one single universe and have the characters start anew with a clean slate.
With Harbinger's revelation that is was the Oan Krona's experiment 10 billion years ago that brought the Anti-Monitor into contact with the positive-matter universes, thus setting the stage for his plans, the heroes and villains have decided to call a truce.

As heroes kept hopping from Earth to Earth to defeat their enemies, it got confusing trying to keep track of who was from which earth.
A notable epilogue to the Crisis series is The History of the DC Universe (1986), a post-Crisis, two-volume chronology of the DC Universe, written by Marv Wolfman and illustrated by George Perez.
The plot as such is simple: Harbinger, in the aftermath of the Crisis, attempts to chronicle every historical event in the DC Universe, from the dawn of creation to the end of time.

 Crisis on Infinite Earths - Uncyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Crisis on Infinite Earths (henceforth "crisis") was an event that happened in 1895, when The Anti-Monitor (otherwise known as Jimbo Wales in some circles) came to the conclusion that in all of multiple realities, there was too much information to be recorded and written about.
Strange things happened after the Crisis, such as Ambush Bug becomes the Apex Preditor after he finds the Anti-Monitor's Armor and decided to put it on, causing the even more confusing Infinite Crisis.
Although some of it did, but only after Infinite Earths were released when Alex Luthor of Earth-3 made the Anti-Monitor fart them out of his arse after Alex Luthor of Earth-3, Superman of Earth-2, Superboy Prime, Lois Lane of Earth-2 hid in a pocket universe before Crisis of Infinite Earths via a plot-hole.

DC Comics had done a Crisis on Infinite Earths aka COIE series and it had confused the readers.
Identity Crisis - Heroes had undergone Identity Crisises and created their own sockpuppet identities, it was revealed that Ambush Bug had found the Anti-Monitor's armor and that this would make him the Apex Predator for the upcoming Infinite Crisis.
So DC created Prelude to Infinite Crisis and Countdown to Infinite Crisis by trying to explain the events that were happening, all the while killing the sockpuppet C-List super hero known as The Blue Bettle.

 THE HIGH HAT | MARGINALIA: DC's Crisis on Infinite Earths
Its setting is the tableau of infinite worlds it seeks to destroy, like a parody of the ancient algebra of the occultists mentioned by Alastair Crowley who were trying to work the infinite equation of God down into a single number.
In a way, Crisis on Infinite Earths is a paean to this one figure, an inspiration and an unmatched presence both in comics history and in the series itself: Superman.
Marv Wolfman intended Crisis on Infinite Earths to prune away the DC multiverse into a unified single universe with all the strengths of DC’s classic Golden Age combined with the Silver Age renaissance as a launching pad for new stories.

For those of you who have only heard of the original Crisis or don't know many details beyond "the multiple earths were eliminated and lots of heroes and villains died," Wolfman told THE PULSE how the series came about.
My thought was to eliminate the multiple Earths, to simplify the universe and to let new readers come to DC without having to know 45 plus years of DC history.
Crisis was a company book and every major plot point (not story point but how something would have ramifications on the rest of the DCU) had to be approved by more people than approved the Manhattan Project.

make an animated "Crisis" As they said in This interview, the purpose of the comic book crisis was to clean up the complex stuff going on in the DCU, and they don't need to do that in the animated universe.

Crisis was DC's attempt to clean up the convoluted mess their comics had become (and still required a few other events to try to fix up the remaining messes).

 Movie Poop Shoot - COMICS 101
By the 1980s, editorial and fan opinion on the device was split: some felt the multiple Earths were far too confusing and served as an obstacle to the new reader, while others felt the concept unique and lots of fun if handled correctly, and that it encouraged new readers to learn more about DC’s universe.
Before the Earth’s heroes could fully take in their reborn universe, the Anti-Monitor played his final gambit: he plucked the Earth itself from its orbit and transplanted it into his anti-matter universe, there to more easily destroy it and clear the way for the destruction of all life.
Through the concerted efforts of the newly united Earth’s superheroes, the Anti-Monitor is finally destroyed, with the final blow coming from the original Superman of Earth-Two, who elects to remain behind to make certain the Earth is able to safely return to its own universe.
