Somewhere in the Multiverse, there exists an Earth where the world's heroes are called the Justice Lords. Things appear the same, except at one crucial point in history. Lex Luthor became President of the United States. After a utopian plan failed, Luthor lost his mind as the world was on the verge of disaster. Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman stormed the White House to extract Luthor. Superman went ahead and confronted him alone. Threatening to launch warheads with the push of a button, Superman killed Luthor. The Lords changed and began to embrace a morally gray agenda. With new costumes and a completely outfitted Watchtower, they monitored Earth for any crime, big or small.
Two years later, the Flash is dead, there are no elections, and free speech is suppressed. Gotham City is cleaned and no crime exists. Every violation is met with extreme measures by the police. The Lords dealt with the supervillains by allowing Superman to lobotomize them with his heat vision. They became docile and elected to live in Arkham Asylum and other prisons around the planet. Instead, the Justice Lords have become the most feared force on the planet. Their mere presence sparked fear. Green Lantern and Hawkgirl arrived at a college protest in Smalleville and the police gained the upperhand. In the Batcave, Batman invented a device to observe and teleport to other universes. He alerted the Lords after discovering the Justice League and Lex Luthor. They decided to go to their universe and make the changes that would prevent them from suffering their fate.
J'onn Jonzz entered their universe under the guise that both their universes were collapsing on each other. The League walked into a trap. While Batman monitored them from Stryker's Island Prison, the rest of the Lords went into the League's universe. The Flash sped up his heartbeat and made it look like it flatlined. The Flash knocked out Batman and freed everyone. Batman deduced the password was 91939. While the League searched for Hawkgirl at Arkham, Batman went to the Batcave to find out how to return home. After Wonder Woman failed to utter the password: applesauce, the Joker activated a unit of Superman Robots to attack the League. The Batmen reconciled and went to gather the League up before the police fired on them. After the Lords were stripped of their power and arrested by Cadmus, it is unknown what came of the Lords' universe. It is most likely the world returned to a democratic state and Gotham remained heavily policed by Batman.
