Page 3 "I can hear Supergirl's heartbeat"
Page 4 "It's in perfect sync with Power Girl's"
We then go on a ride showing Clayface and others going after her, and she seems almost at the point of losing...but thats when Earth 2 Superman flys in and saves the day. "Cousin"
Next we have the Daily Planet, where news of different dead heroes and Omacs is floating through the air, while Lois is trying to get her head on straight. She goes to Clark who is staring at an oversized "Superman Dead" front page, thinking about what Bruce said last issue. He realizes that he really needs to get out there and do something...NOW.
Here's a list, in order, of what follows:
-Meeting of Secret Society of Super Villians
-Luthor confused after listening in on the Soiciety on a polar ice cap
-Earth 2 Superman and Power Girl fly by heading towards thier own little hide out
-5 pages explaining everthing pre CoiE up to NOW (VERY well done)
-Earth 2 Lois is dying
-Booster Gold appears at the crater of the watchtower, and realizes he has one job: to find the Blue Beetle scarab.
-The Joker finally shows up. He's killed most of The Royal Flush Gang and is torturing the King, asking why he isnt being recruited like all the other villians. "See, everyone knows...Joker's TOO wild" Joker zaps his face off "That's not funny..."
-Power Girl touches Earth 2 Lois and remembers everything from her life on Earth 2
-Batcave...Batman gets a talking to from OMAC...blaming metahumans for everything, especially Wonder Woman
-Themyscira (2 page spread...very well detailed) Wonder Woman defending the island from many OMACs as the Amazons fight
-The last 2 pages are hard to explain and is probably the biggest "Spoiler" of them all
Kal-L last page
"...But i realized we saved the wrong earth"
"I need your support and help, Cousin. We can save Lois. We can save her if we can take her home."
"This corrupted and darkened Earth must be forgotten as ours was..."
"...So that the right Earth can return"
I don't why, but my favorite part in that issue was Clark at the Daily Planet looking at framed frontpage of the daily planet "Superman Dead" and him telling Lois that "Bruce is right...He's always right."
I don't think Dc is going to go back to old days.
I really think that it is going to get darker. Golden Age Supes won't get what he wants.

I've just read issues 121 and 120 of JLA. Whopse the guy who as broken out of Arkyham ? Is he potentionally the 'crisis' or is he just a side plot? I saw that Trigon had featured in one of the recent Teen Tiatn books. Could he be in for a match against Spectre ? What role is the real Luthor going to play in this whole affair, and where has the other one come from ? What is devouring the the DC galaxies ?
Just read the issue. Too be honest it wasn't as good as the first. But it IS laying groundwork for cinematic battles...
Also I didn't think it was possible but PC Supes is even MORE of a dick than usual. Who the hell does he think he is by wanting to make the DC Universe a backward 50's Pleasantville-esque universe? Jesus Christ. The nerve...
