In addition, the Source Wall itself had been breached and whatever has been held at bay behind it for eons presumably now has a path right into the DCU.
Following the battle Carter Hall described visions he had experienced during his time at The World Forge. Visions of Atlantis of rising, the formation of the new Dark Stars, the Flash War and a Dark Pantheon.
