Final Crisis was a craptacular sequel to Infinite Crisis in DC Comics Infinite Quest for more money. It killed off a few more characters, turned the 52 Earths into 5200 Earths, and brought DC Comics a revenue of eleventy billion dollars for the years of 2008-2009 that it ran. It was developed to fight the Marvel Secret Invasion series that ran along side Finial Crisis.
The Final CrisisEdit
Turns out DC was losing the rights to Superboy, and killed off Conner Kent aka Con-El bka Superboy by using Superboy Prime renamed as Superman Prime after absorbing the Green Lantern energy from killing a Guardian and absorbing the energy to give him big muscles despite his tiny penis according to Mr. Myxylplx. As a result Superman Prime joined forces with Sinentro and the Sinetro Corps of Yellow Lanterns, Cyborg Superman, and a cast of other villains. It had a 51 issue Countdown to Final Crisis that came before it.
Darkseid hatched a plot to take over Earth via the Anti-Life equation as the New Gods got reborn as people on Earth and had to be awoken after the New Gods got killed off by Darkseid via magic bullets.
Not to say that DC won't do another Crisis series, they are all Crisis series, just under different names. DC's editors had Mid-Life Crisises and had to come up with new ideas for new miniseries to make more money. Nothing like another Crisis involving multiple Earths or Universes or whatever.
Anyway it was an awful series that cost too much money to the average comic book fanboy to collect. The story was so bad that it burned the retinas of any Fanboy who dared read the Miniseries.
With over 5200 comic books to buy and collect, it is the biggest Miniseries to date; although, most of the comics where crossovers and unrelated DC Comics marked "Final Crisis" on their covers just so DC could sell them even if they had nothing to do with the main 7 Final Crisis books.
“Worst Comic Book Miniseries Ever!”
“Most Profitable Comic Book Miniseries Ever!”
“Ow ow ow, my eyes, this comic book miniseries burns!”
There is no plot, as usual. Bad guys try to take over the Infinite Earths, Good Guys try to stop them, some of them get killed, new characters get discovered. DC rakes in billions with $5 Comics that span 52 issues or more including cross-overs and prequels. As usual the story makes no sense at all, and it is just random fights for no reason, and DC history gets retroconned again.
No really that is it, there is no plot, just a conspiracy to sell more comic books by DC by doing yet another "Crisis" series of comic books and spin-offs and tie-ins. If not, DC Comics would go out of business as their normal books are boring as all Hell.

He gets sent back in time, and has a Bat belt but no Sharpie marker to mark "I am Batman, I was sent back in time to the stone age, someone with a time travel power come rescue me!" so instead he keeps dying and being reborn as Batman and each life is worse than the last one.

- About six other Lantern Corps start forming for one epic showdown that's supposed to be bigger than Final Crisis, but still not counted as a crisis. In addition to the Green Lantern Corps and the Sinestro Corps of fear, these include the Red Lantern Corps of hate, filled with pissed off Hulk wannabes, the Orange Lantern Corps of greed, with people trying to steal all the government bailouts, the Blue Lantern Corps of hope, who strengthen Green Lantern rings but otherwise don't do anything themselves, the Indigo Tribe of compassion, basically an army of space hippies, and the Star Sapphires of love, an army exclusively made of hot women who will end war by spreading love, hopefully free. Also, the Black Lanterns, who are all dead. How much of a problem can that be? Oh wait, the undead you say? Yeah, that could be a bit more of a problem.
