Did DC Comics Spoil The Identity Of The Outsider In Trinity War?

So, Trinity War. Forever Evil. The Crime Syndicate Of America. The Secret Society Of Super Villains. The Outsider.

A few of us have has a theory as to who exactly, The Leader of the Secret Society is. The Outsider. It's been pieced together, the identity of the Silver Age Outsider, the fact that he knows where Batman lives, he has a map of the Batcave, he knows Catwoman's identity and the rest.

Billy Henehan put it all on one page but went one step further. He read the Justice League Trinity War #1: Directors Cut, which included the script by Geoff Johns. Which may have given a little too much away…

Alfred. Alfred Pennyworth, butler to Owlman in Earth 3. And as we know a man who saw the end of his world…

watched your world die

Which means this vision from Madame Xanadu from the same issue, is not of Earth, but of Earth 3. And something very bad happened to it… and as the script shows us, that's not actually Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.

Is there no Earth 3 for Alfred et al to return to?

Unless of course it's all a bait and switch…
