According to nuclear physics, there are an infinite number of parallel dimensions that each have their own unique vibration. Some unique individuals have a subconscious link to other dimensions as a shared psychic memory. In one universe during the 1960's, Tom Turbine designed and constructed a Transdimensional Gateway. While looking like a circular archway, it was one of the most intriguing devices ever created. Turbine, however, was unable to every locate a suitable power source and abandoned the project. It came to his mind again when the Justice Guild of America encountered parallel versions of themselves called the Justice League. After they discovered Seaboard City was an elaborate mental construct and defeated its creator, Ray Thompson, the League went through the Guild's mansion. They rediscovered the Transdimensional Gateway and Green Lantern used his power ring to temporarily activate it and returned home.

Decades later, in the 21st century, Batman removed himself from active duty with the Justice Lords and attended to projects in the Batcave. One of them was the construction of a Transdimensional Gateway and a means of monitoring other universes with his Batcomputer. After discovering one with the Justice League fighting Lex Luthor, he summoned the other Lords. They decided to forcefully help their universe. J'onn Jonzz went to their universe and told them a cover story that their universes were collapsing on one another. He lured them to his, right into a trap. After the Justice League escaped and extracted Hawkgirl from Arkham, they reunited at the Batcave where Batman allowed them to return home and confront his allies. It is unknown how Batman came to power his own Transdimensional Gateway.
