"Hey, he was the conscience of your group and that means I must be..."
Flash

The Flash was instrumental in the transition of his universe's Justice League into the fascist Justice Lords and their subjugation of their Earth for what they saw as the greater good.

History

Death

This Flash's history was identical to his Justice League counterpart until President Lex Luthor threatened the world with nuclear war in a scheme for personal power. As part of his scheme, Luthor sent the military to capture the Flash. Beaten, bruised, and weakened, Flash was brought before the President. Held in place by two soldiers, President Luthor publicly executed the Flash with a shotgun.[1]

Legacy

The Flash's unjust murder caused his teammates to retaliate and attack the White House directly. During this event, Superman killed Luthor by incinerating the President with his heat vision. After President Luthor's execution, Flash's teammates took complete control of their world.

Two years later, Flash's death was still felt by his teammates (most notably by Green Lantern and Hawkgirl). While held captive by the Justice Lords, the Justice League used Batman's psychological weakness over the deaths of people he cares for to escape by making Lord Batman believe that the League's Flash had died through the Justice Lords' actions. It was during the encounter with the Lords that the League discovered that Flash was the "glue" holding both teams together and keeping them from venturing down a path too dark. Superman himself hesitated before deciding to kill the League's Flash, before he was stopped by the Justice League's Superman.[2]

During the Cadmus Crisis, the Question was captured by Project Cadmus and tortured by Doctor Moon with flashes mimicking what happened to the Justice Lords' world that included the Flash's execution.[1]

When Lex Luthor merged with Brainiac, the combined entity created an android replica of Flash. The fused villain also tried to kill Flash to recreate President Luthor's execution of Flash.[3]
