How Did The Outsider Get That Pale Complexion?
Seems that Earth 3’s Joker used his Joker gas on Alfred and Owlman was able to halt it making him go mad. However, the pale stays.
During the fight with the Joker, Owlman takes his life and we learn that Owlman’s partner the Talon is also seemingly dead.

We also learned in Justice League #23.4 Secret Society #1 a bit more on how Prime Earth came to the attention of the Crime Syndicate.
Who Killed Owlman’s Parents?
Like Bruce Wayne on Prime Earth, on Earth 3 Thomas Wayne’s parents were also killed when he was a boy; killed by none other than Alfred Pennyworth in his pre-Outsider days. Wow.
