Silver Coins: The Outsider is the only known origin of the Secret Society's silver coins, which they use as badges of identification and as communication devices. One side of the coins shows Pandora's Box flanked by a motto, "oderint dum metuant". The other side shows a view of North and South America on Earth 3, flanked by another motto, "aeternum malus".
Alfred Pennyworth was a destitute man rescued and given a grand purpose by young Thomas Wayne. He was the one who killed the Waynes and he continued to serve the boy as he grew into the crime lord known as Owlman. He served loyally and well for several years as Owlman helped run the world through the Crime Syndicate.
During this time, the world turned against the Crime Syndicate, so they razed it and searched for a new world to rule. They found Prime Earth, where the walls of reality had temporarily thinned with the passage of Darkseid, and tried to go there. However, the passage was tricky, and only two people, Pennyworth and villain called Atomica, made the trip.
Confused by the differences in this new world, Pennyworth set out to learn what he could. After a year, he began a plan: to found a force to unite the villains, and to gain control of Pandora's Box, which he could use to free his master. He was successful in both.
