The Crime Syndicate soon took over of the United States. Afterwards, they each controlled a different part of the country. Bruce's territory included Gotham City, which he ruled with an iron fist.[2][1]

The following took place in an alternate timeline where Flashpoint never happened.

In 2016, James Jesse showed a map of the United States revealing each territory of the country taken by the Crime Syndicate. Owlman's symbol was an owl head.[2]

In 2018, Bruce built a device in Central City that opened a breach to Earth-1's Central City in order to escape the destruction of his world caused by the Anti-Matter Man.

After witnessing the Syndicate's defeat, Bruce started planning to take over Central City, but was interrupted by a cop who recognized him as Bruce Wayne.[1]
