Character EndingsEdit

  • Batman: Brainiac's attack left the world devastated. Thousands dead, many more thousands homeless. When President Kane asked that I head up the emergency response, I couldn't refuse. The job's demands required that I leave the Justice League in Barry's and Hal's hands. Together they're molding the younger heroes into a force for good unlike any Earth has even seen. But I'm only semi-retired. Behind the scenes, I've been preparing for Superman's return. Kal swore he'd escape from the Phantom Zone. I'd be foolish not to take him at his word.
  • Superman: I vowed to protect the Earth. But to guarantee its safety, I need to expand my vision. Brainiac's ship is the ultimate weapon. But in my hands, it could be so much more. Millions of civilizations await rebirth in Brainiac's collection. I'll find the bravest and strongest warriors among them, and I'll start a new Regime. No, a new Legion. The Legion of Superheroes! With it, I'll bring peace not just to Earth, but to the entire universe! And the universes that lie beyond!
  • Wonder Woman: When Batman tore down the Regime, man's world called me a tyrant. My Amazon sisters disowned me. That Brainiac showed Earth what a tyrant truly looks like. The people begged for deliverance-- and I gave them Brainiac's head. Once again, it falls upon the Regime to restore peace and order. Batman and the traitors who followed him will be punished. Even Kara Zor-El. Then I will return to Themyscira-- and deal with my sisters. If they do not heed my commands, they will bow to force. So says Diana, princess of the Amazons, slayer of Brainiac!
  • Catwoman: With nine lives, it had to happen sooner or later. I got everything I ever wanted, including a handsome prince and a badass reputation as the woman who beat Brainiac. And I must say... I was bored to death. Bruce and I worked better when we were forbidden. When the masks were on and the claws were out. That honeymoon was over, so I did the best thing for both of us. I'm not sad. I didn't become Catwoman to bag Bruce Wayne. I don't ever want to rely on anyone but myself. I'll go where I want to go, take what I want to take. And never, ever look back.
  • Joker: I hadn't begun my day thinking I'd give a wannabe alien overlord a haircut. That was a happy accident. But what I first thought a distraction inspired my life's greatest work. I found Brainiac's collection. Those poor cities from across the universe, trapped aboard his ship. There was only one thing to do! I restored them. And gave Earth the reboot it so desperately needed! I stitched together a crazy quilt of alien civilizations, without regard to rhyme or reason. Afraid, confused, devolved to their basest instincts, they kill each other in the most sickening ways. And I get to sit back, munch popcorn, and enjoy the show -- watching as the world burns! Hehehehahahahaha!
  • Harley Quinn: I still can't believe it! Me, bringing down Brainiac! Who knew? Still, Bats surprised me, offering me a spot in the Justice League! Not totally sure he ain't crazy! But who says no to that guy? You know, being good feels good. But every now and again, every once in a while, I get this irresistible urge to go out and BASH SOME HEADS! Hopefully, being good'll stick long term. Till I'm sure, my kid, Lucy's still gonna know me as her crazy aunt Harleen. Maybe someday, I can give her the real scoop.
  • Cyborg: Brainiac thought he had me all figured out. Said my humanity made me weak. But fighting for humanity gave me the strength to body that punk-ass Coluan. And before he dropped, I took a few things... His twelfth-level intellect and his ship's data core. I thought the Internet was gigantic. But now? I've got the whole wide universe at my fingertips. First up, I put back every Earth city Brainiac stole, starting with my hometown, The Motor City! Then I keep going... Superman wants to secure one world, but I can reboot tens of thousands! Every last one in Brainiac's Collection. Gonna be a long trip. But another benefit of my new twelfth-level intellect is I can reunite with some old friends. Titans Together. Boo-yah.
  • Bane: Who would have ever imagined a sickly boy born in a prison would survive to become humanity's savior? I did. And now the world is mine. So I say to all prisoners... Rise! Come out! Kill your wardens! Make slaves of your guards. Teach them the meaning of despair! We have no more prisons, no police, no Regime left to fight... [Sighs] No one left to fight. Any worthy opponent has already... fallen... Dios mio. Perhaps victory can be a prison. A possibility I never imagined...
  • Robin: Bruce Wayne was my father, and it's no secret I hated him. But despite all that, he sacrificed himself to save me. Giving me the chance to stop Brainiac permanently. I was so obsessed with escaping the bat's shadow, that I never appreciated what that symbol really meant. Not until I saw it stained with my father's blood. My blood. This symbol is my legacy, a legacy of vengeance. My name is Damian Wayne, son of Bruce, grandson of the demon. I've been called Robin, and Nightwing. But from now on, the world will know me as... Batman.
  • Flash: So much for heroes. Brainiac had barely hit the floor when the arguing started. Should we kill him? Keep him alive? I couldn't watch them go to war. Not again. So I ran -- into the speed force! Brainiac wanted the universe to himself, so I dropped him off at the end of history. But I still kept running. I needed to be alone. Then I heard a familiar voice... It was Jay -- and the other speedsters! A crisis is coming, he told me! But if we run fast enough, together, we just might save the Multiverse. I thought I'd been running away. But I was running toward something. It's good to believe in heroes again.
  • Jason Rusch: The professor and me worked our tails off to control our powers. But Stein figured out the only way to beat Brainiac was to lose control.
Martin Stein: I correctly calculated that overheating Brainiac's engines would weaken him. But the quantum disruption we created caused an... unexpected chain reaction... The Skull Ship exploded... and every city Brainiac stole from Earth was obliterated. Metropolis. Coast City. All of them.
Jason Rusch: We thought we'd finally be the big heroes. The ones everyone looks up to.
Martin Stein: But in our hubris, we lost sight of the hero's duty: protecting others at all costs.
Jason Rusch: And we can't make that kinda mistake again.
Martin Stein: But still, if you ever need us, Batman...
Both: We'll be here.
  • Doctor Fate: The Lords of Order believed Earth couldn't be saved. That only Brainiac's evil could restore order. I knew refusing the Lords' Fate would anger them, and that they'd try to destroy me. Anyone else would have nowhere to run. Fortunately, I still have friends in low places. The House of Mystery guards the Helm. Zatanna and Constantine's spells conceal me from the Lords. But it was John's daughter, Rose, who gave me the greatest gift of all. My wife, Inza, returned to life and in my arms again. For the first time since taking up the Helm, I don't know what tomorrow will bring. And that is... perfect.
  • Black Canary: I'd have loved to kick back and savor kicking Brainiac's ass, but I had to rush home. I didn't know if Connor had made it out of the invasion OK. Turns out I didn't need to worry. The crazy stress of Brainiac's attack had activated my son's metagene, and if there's one thing you don't want to mess with, it's a scared, pissed-off three-year-old with superpowers. Sure I love that Connor takes after me, but... raising him suddenly got a lot more complicated. I'm just glad to have people around that can help me and Ollie figure this whole thing out.
  • Green Arrow: Taking down that green-skinned bastard got me thinking about the people of my Earth. My universe's Brainiac had never come calling. I had to warn them. By the time I got home, it was too late. My Earth was *this* close to being gone for good. But that's when the strangest cavalry you've ever seen rode in. It was a full-on, multiverse Justice League! They'd been hopping between universes, battling Brainiac in every one. I couldn't refuse when they asked me to join. I've seen what Brainiac can do. Nobody, in any universe, should have to face that threat again.
  • Captain Cold: Going after the Regime was one thing. But destroy the planet for Brainiac? You really thought I'd go through with it, Grodd? Really?! [BLEEP!] you! Sorry it's been a while, sis. I know I've always got an excuse. But this time, I-I finally figured out the right way to honor your memory. I know what you're thinking. "Old Lenny sold out". So what? I'm making sure the Regime and Brainiac never happen again. Even buried the hatchet with old Scarlet Speedster. Ironically or whatever, he's the best partner I ever had. 'Sides you, sis.
  • Cheetah: Hungry for his blood, I prepared to claim Brainiac. But the alien, desperate to save his life, sputtered out an offer. Brainiac said that if I spared him, he'd deposit any of his collected beings I wanted on a world of my choosing. There, I could pursue them at my leisure. So now I hunt, free from Wonder Woman's interference. With each kill, I glorify the Goddess. As for Brainiac? Of course I didn't abide our agreement. I'd never given up on killing him. A true huntress always catches her prey.
  • Atrocitus: My punishment of Brainiac's crimes had unintended consequences. His death disabled his ship. Billions of collected souls perished. I did not know they could be restored. Their deaths unleashed such rage. My Red Lanterns were overwhelmed. They drove me from Ysmault. They would have killed me, if not for Proselyte. The emotional entity offered me compassion, not rage, in the face of my grave error. I now understand the emotional spectrum requires balance. My Red Lanterns' rage must punish the worst offenders. But it cannot blindly consume those who deserve compassion.
  • Supergirl: My hands still shake when I remember Brainiac's "collection" of Krypton. I want to give the world he stole a second chance. But bonding with Brainiac's ship is too risky. I need a safer way to restore our cities. I'm so glad for the Justice League's help. Barry, Professor Stein--they've already taught me so much. Every day, we get closer to reversing Brainiac's collection process. When we do, we'll pick the right star system. What Brainiac ruined will be reborn--Argo City and Kandor, twin cities, survivors. I couldn't save Kal-El. But I will save our people.
  • Darkseid: The Coluan, Brainiac, was a genius without peer. But. I. Am. A God. I could not allow an errant intellect to steal the object of my vengeance. Superman refused to submit to my will, denied my conquest of Earth, and killed my son, Kalibak. He suffered and perished. But not until I told him exactly what would happen after he died. Kara Zor-El proved quite resilient, but eventually, DeSaad broke her. She is a powerful weapon--a natural leader for my new, invincible breed of parademons, cloned from the DNA of Superman himself. Superman robbed me of my blood. Now, our score is settled. That is the will of Darkseid!
  • Swamp Thing: Many throughout history have underestimated the green. In this way, Brainiac was no different than Superman or Batman. They all thought they could improve upon nature. They all were wrong. Earth belonged to the green for eons before animals evolved. Now, the trees and plants will remind these animals upon whose planet they reside. When the next crisis comes, nature will protect itself. I stand with the green, and the green alone.
  • Green Lantern: The Guardians ordered me to bring Brainiac to Oa to stand trial. I was plenty happy to put a few thousand light years between that alien and Earth. After the trial, the Guardians dropped a bombshell on me. Sinestro was free. Busted outta their ScienceCells. A frontal assault on the Sinestro Corps was a no go. Us Greens were still weak from fighting Superman's regime. That's why I volunteered to go undercover-- as a Yellow Lantern. To pass, I need to re-embrace my fear. But fear's an addiction. Once I've picked up that bottle, it's gonna be awfully hard putting it back down again. I just hope I have the will to see it through.
  • Gorilla Grodd: The befuddled look frozen on Braniac's dead face is a vision I will always relish. Even as I ripped the head from his body, the alien couldn't believe that an ape was taking his life. {Laughs} I quickly mastered Brainiac's technology, exponentially increasing my telepathic power. Then I enslaved Earth's humans, finally relegating them to their proper place. But my victory over those vermin was only the beginning. Now fully in command of Brainiac's vast powers, I am the greatest conqueror the Universe has ever seen. All worlds will kneel before Emperor Grodd.
  • Deadshot: Grodd used the damned nano-explosive in my head to make me his bitch. The jobs he made me do... well, let's just say they crossed some lines. I bet taking Brainiac and Grodd into the authorities would beat doing another stretch in Belle Reve... and I was right. Bruce Wayne even bankrolled getting rid of my TNT migraines for good. I frickin' hate hospitals, but god, was it worth it. With that nano safely out, I could finally see Zoe again. Last time I saw my little girl, she had nine candles on her birthday cake. Now I gotta second shot at being dad-- and I sure as hell don't plan to miss it.
  • Poison Ivy: Of all the men I've charmed, Brainiac was the most useful. With his help, I finally slaughtered the so-called heroes. Then I whispered in his ear, "Collect every last city on Earth, and I'll give you a kiss". And he did it. Every last city. I finally brought human civilization crashing to the ground. As for Brainiac, he got the kiss he deserved. But he was just a fling. After all, I was going to be busy leading the green... I should've know there'd be some competition. Swamp Thing's sympathy for humans makes him weak. The plants know I'm their real guardian. And when the leaves settle, there will be no doubt-- this world is mine.
  • Blue Beetle: Oh, man-- dude!-- I cannot even describe what it felt like! Sure, I was just the newb in the crew. But like, you think I'd ever let Brainiac kill Batman, and what, blow up the world? No manches! When it was over, Batman was all-- (clears throat, imitates Batman:) "The world is safe thanks to you, Jaime. I'd like to make you LEADER of the new Justice League, if that's cool with you." Wow! That was a really tempting offer, you know. But if there's one thing better than saving Batman, it's saving mi familia. I haven't been around them much since I got the Scarab. So for now, I'm moving home and going back to school. And if this so-called "normal" life doesn't work out? There's always the Justice League.
  • Aquaman: Superman was right. Brainiac needed to die. But I couldn't stomach the idea of Kal's return to power. Atlantis would not again be his vassal. With Batman beaten and his allies imprisoned, I couldn't muster the force I needed to take Superman down. I'd all but lost hope when my marines discovered an abandoned Insurgent base hidden in the Southern Ocean. Here Lex Luthor perfected his inter-universe transporter. From plans left behind, my scientists built a new device. Now I go and ask for the help of those I had fought. I must also ask their forgiveness.
  • Black Adam: I returned to find Kahndaq devastated from Brainiac's attack. My beloved queen was dead. I brought her broken body to the Lazarus Pits, intent on her resurrection. But my entry was barred by Ra's Al Ghul. He offered a trade: access to the pits in exchange for my aid in bringing him to power. Ra's admired Superman's regime, but felt it should have gone further. While I have no love for Ra's, I accepted his terms. I will pay any price to again feel the embrace of my dearest wife.
  • Scarecrow: After studying Brainiac's blood, I tweaked my fear toxin to exploit his alien biology. And as I gained control of his shattered mind, I also gained control of his ship. I began to explore Brainiac's enormous collection, soon realizing it was an unprecedented opportunity for study. Billions of species, from millions of worlds. Each with its own phobias and fears. Now, the Skull Ship is my laboratory. As it glides through the vast darkness of space, its collected beings are subjected to their worst nightmares. With each I study, my knowledge grows. It may take decades, but I will become the universe's greatest master of fear.
  • Starfire: Back in the day, this victory would have called for a party in the Titans' Tower. The music, the laughter, the mustard with pizza on bottom. But these days, I have no party mates. Raven became a servant of Trigon. Cyborg, he joined the regime. Beast Boy has been missing for so long, I must assume he is dead. Dick Grayson... he was my star-crossed soulmate. He will never be replaced. And now... all that's left is me, last of the Titans. Dick would not approve of the moping. I only overcame the loss of Tamaran by coming to Earth and forging new bonds of friendship with the Titans. It is incumbent upon me to repeat history. To forge new bonds of friendship. Maybe they're not my Titans, but the only way I know to honor my lost friends is to make sure that no matter what, that we'll always be Titans together. After all, I beat Brainiac. That was a victory, and victories call for mustard parties.
  • Sub-Zero: I arrived in this realm accidentally, driven here by magic unleashed as I forced Kotal Kahn's retreat from Earthrealm to Outworld. I was seeking a route home when Brainiac attacked. I could not allow this vile invader to add this planet, or myself, to his collection. In gratitude for my flawless victory, Batman offered the Justice League's aid. While I waited on him to unlock the magic of inter-realm travel, I provided valuable kombat training to the youngest members of his order. But the spells that were devised went awry. Instead of opening a portal to Earthrealm, they opened a gateway to the Phantom Zone. Now I fight to re-imprison Superman and his followers. They would not have been freed, but for my accidental arrival in this realm. I am now duty-bound to protect it, as if it were my own.
  • Red Hood: That... felt... good... Titanium composite hollow point bullets with a C4 kicker. Fastest, most explosive ammo in the world. I made them myself. With the invasion over, Bruce and Superman started fighting again. I wasn't down with either of them. On the one hand, the regime's right: scumbag murderers and rapists deserve to die. But on the other hand, I'm no fan of government authority. Especially the dictatorial variety. So, while the world's finest fight each other, I fight for the people, the weak, the innocent, anyone who can't protect themselves. When they cry out for a savior, I'll answer! As for the criminals that threaten them, they need to know that their actions have consequences! That the Red Hood is coming for them!
  • Raiden: Though I had finished Shinnok, his corruption of Earthrealm's Jinsei has cracked the barrier between my realm and this one. I began having visions of Brainiac's collection of this Earth. I realized that Brainiac's actions would soon destroy the barrier among all the realms. All life would be annihilated. With Brainiac dispatched, I tended the injured. His wounds too great, Kent Nelson could not be saved. But as he died, he warned me: the Armageddon I had foreseen was the design of the Lords of Order. By destroying reality, they would return the multiverse to a perfectly ordered state, obliterating Chaos. To defeat this powerful magic, the Justice League turned to this Earth's most proficient wizards and sorcerers. I gladly accepted the invitation to join them. The Lords will be contained, Order and Chaos will remain balance. Life as we know it, will continue.
  • Hellboy: Somehow, Brainiac shanghaied me on a slow boat to this universe. Bastard had big dreams about me in his "Collection". Guess what I thought about that idea. Taking Brainiac out certainly got folk's attention. I got a lotta offers to stick around, but I got bored quick. Megalomaniac villains and tights-wearing heroes really aren't my thing. What's it they say? Home is where the heart is? But when I got back, things just weren't the same. The bureau was too small. Was time for me to hit the road. Africa was totally the right call. The wide open spaces suit me. Clean air, starry skies and, not surprisingly, more than a few monsters to hunt. All in all, makes for a pretty good life.
  • Black Manta: Brainiac stole Atlantis. For that, I could have thanked him. But that wasn't enough. Arthur Curry's kingdom had to be wiped from history. Forgotten. Lost. As it should be. I found just the place, guarded by Earth's most savage predators. Once upon a time, Arthur Curry killed my father. Now that I've killed his kingdom, all that remains is to kill "the King" himself. Only then will I consider my father's murder avenged. Only then will I rest. And what of Aquaman? Does he come forward to avenge his own people? No. He hides behind an alien and an Amazon. Let him. It won't save him. Compared to that alien freak, Brainiac, these three will be fish for the slaughter. And when they're dead, the world can thank Black Manta.
  • June Moone: When it comes to magic, even Brainiac has a lot to learn. He thought he could "collect" the power of the Enchantress. So I let him have it. And sure enough, the old witch ate him alive. It was over. Brainiac was beaten. But even more miraculously, the Enchantress... was gone. After years of that witch feeding on me, torturing me, corrupting me... I'm free. No more aliases, no evil alter-egos, I can just be June Moone. I got my old job back at the design studio, I even have a date this Friday! Piece by piece, I'm rebuilding my old life. Once I've--No! Get out of my head!
Enchantress: June, June, June. Did you really think you could dispose of me so easily? Brainiac's collection was a revelation. You and I have been thinking far too small. Why corrupt one Earth, when we can bewitch all 52?
  • Atom: Brainiac's armor made him impervious to harm, from the outside, at least. He'll survive this minor brain surgery. He just won't be able to control his Skull Ship anymore. Crisis averted, I can get back to searching for my missing mentor, Professor Ray Palmer. Last year, Palmer dove headfirst into the Microverse, a subatomic dimension he himself discovered. In case he got lost, he left behind a trail of clues and designated an asthmatic research fellow, yours truly, to follow them. That trail's gone cold. Which is why I'm upgrading my bio-belt with Brainiac's technology. It's my turn to get subatomic. I'm not the strongest or bravest hero out there. But Professor Palmer? He's an Einstein-level genius. He trusted me with his astonishing legacy. The Atom is not going to let him down.
  • Brainiac: Brainiac: Obviously Batman and Superman have many questions. Where did I come from? Why am I here? Am I friend or foe? It is time to reveal the truth.
Brainiac 5: I'm Brainiac 5. A descendant of the original Brainiac, but without his homicidal tendencies. In the future, people fear Coluans because of my ancestor. So I elected to come back in time and fix that. Now that I'm done, I'm going back where I belong--the 31st century. The Legion of Super-Heroes will grill me for "borrowing" a time bubble. But all they really need to know is that I'm on their side, and always will be. Long live the Legion!
  • Michaelangelo: So you're like, totally wondering where we vanished off to, right?
Raphael: It was Krang, Mikey! He sent--
Leonardo: Raph, they might not know who Krang is. Donnie?
Donatello: Sure, Leo. Krang is an Utromian criminal turned intergalactic despot from Dimension X. He's known--
Raphael: Yeah, what he said. Anyway, we're the biggest heroes in our universe, right? That's why Krang tried booting us to Dimension X: to make way for his invasion.
Michelangelo: But instead we ended up on a different Earth! Way awesomer!
Donatello: Krang sent us across the Multiverse, to a universe vibrating on a unique frequency--which is a macrocosmic constellation of--
Raphael: Enough with the technobabble, Donnie.
Leonardo: Chill, Raph. Anyway, it shouldn't have surprised us that this new universe had its own intergalactic despot. We knew we had to stop Brainiac or else we--
Michelangelo: Just skip to the best part, bro! Once we whooped Brainiac, I asked that kooky clown lady where to get a good pizza, and she's all, [Harley impression] "Let me get you turtles the Supah Salty Pizza". I swear on my life, that pizza was the scrumdiddly.
All Turtles: Mmmmmm!
Leonardo: Krang thought he'd beaten us, but in the end his whole plan backfired.
Donatello: The "Super Salt" on Harley's pizza? Edible nanotech called 5-U-93-R. It temporarily augmented our physiques and durability.
Raphael: Plain English: we became ultra-turtles.
Leonardo: Krang didn't stand a chance.
Michelangelo: Yeah, you could say this little adventure gave our Turtle Power one shell of an upgrade!
All Turtles: Lame! So lame! Epic fail! Even Shredder's--Are you serious? That was terrible!
Michelangelo: Whatever, dudes. That was funny.

Scarecrow: You stole Fear Toxin!
Joker: An artist doesn't steal, he homages.
Scarecrow: Either way, you owe me!


Atrocitus: You won't deter me, Jordan!
Green Lantern: Still out for justice, huh?

Batman: Bane...

Bane: Said the crop to the reaper.


Green Lantern: You're not a real captain.
Captain Cold: I didn't pick the name.
Green Lantern: But you still picked this fight.


Firestorm: You're backing the wrong team!
Catwoman: I'm working undercover for Batman.
Firestorm: So why didn't he tell me that!?


Deadshot: Folks here want their cities back.
Brainiac: An unlikely outcome of this encounter.
Deadshot: Let's kill you and see where that gets us.


Blue Beetle: So, you really full of straw?
Scarecrow: No, something much worse.
Blue Beetle: Better not be glitter.


Doctor Fate: Kandahq's fate cannot be avoided.

Bane: I can break you with one hand.
Harley Quinn: What's the other one gonna be busy with?
Bane: Silence, clown!


Joker: Doctor, it hurts when I go like this!
Doctor Fate: I am not a medical doctor.
Joker: Or much of a straight man!


Robin: Who were you in bed with this time?
Catwoman: Speaking metaphorically?
Robin: You bet.


Green Lantern: You like boiled, steamed or baked?
Swamp Thing: I do not follow.
Green Lantern: Just asking how you want to get served!


Atrocitus: Trillions demand vengeance!
Brainiac: Those not collected?
Atrocitus: Those you've slaughtered!


Poison Ivy: Your regime failed the green.
Wonder Woman: The regime will rise again!
Poison Ivy: Not anymore.


Blue Beetle: Shall we duel, your highness?
Harley Quinn: How about slaps and tickles at ten paces!?
Blue Beetle: Just my luck, freak of nature.


Catwoman: People topside want you on trial.
Aquaman: I won't be judged for defending Atlantis!
Catwoman: You will be for helping Superman.


Batman: The league didn't teach you everything.
Robin: [scoffs] You have some wisdom to share?
Batman: The importance of self-control.


Black Adam: Why fight me, Bane?
Bane: We are both gods of battle.
Black Adam: You're a maniac, not a god.


Scarecrow: What keeps you up at night?
Superman: Criminals like you.
Scarecrow: So we do scare you!


Cyborg: Now that I'm out, your days are numbered.

Brainiac: Then be eliminated.


Atrocitus: Your sister's plight affects you.
Catwoman: Keep Maggie out of this, Atrocitus!

Joker: Leonard Snart, a letter away from "smart".
Captain Cold: You're several cards short of a deck!


Green Lantern: We can both like the color green.
Swamp Thing: You embarrass green things.
Green Lantern: Never mess with Green Lantern.


Aquaman 1: Atlantis needs a proper king.

Aquaman 1: Not by my count.


Cheetah: At last... the Flash!
Flash: Are you stalking me?
Cheetah: I'm hunting you!

Robin: Dick trusted me, but you never will!
Batman: Trust is earned, Damien!
Robin: How long will that take?


Joker: Deadshot...
Deadshot: That's what they call me.
Joker: Soon, they won't need that second part.


Green Lantern: I never should have been on your side.
Black Adam: You accepted Sinestro's wisdom.
Green Lantern: He was a liar, like you!


Poison Ivy: You smell like a gym locker.
Bane: Maybe I should rub you all over me.
Poison Ivy: You would find it a nauseating way to die.


Superman: I took one life to save millions!
Batman: Hardly the best example for Supergirl.
Superman: Your son would disagree.


Harley Quinn: Outta my way, potato sack!
Scarecrow: I don't fear you.
Harley Quinn: I'll mash your potatoey head!


Cheetah: My bloodlust is insatiable!
Swamp Thing: Green Blood won't feed your hunger.
Cheetah: I'll enjoy the kill just the same.


Atrocitus: Your blood runs today!
Wonder Woman: I may bleed, but I will not fall.
Atrocitus: Then you will die standing, Amazon!


Aquaman: You betrayed your father, Damien.
Robin: Because he was spectacularly wrong!
Aquaman: Still, you owe him your loyalty.


Catwoman 1: Bet you can't find my safehouse.
Catwoman 2: The dusty tenement on Harlow Street?
Catwoman 1: Well played, copycat!


Doctor Fate: The Batman.
Batman: I'll go easy on you.
Doctor Fate: A poor choice indeed.


Cyborg: Wonder Woman says I report to you.
Black Adam: We have a world to rule.
Cyborg: Why should I follow your lead?


Bane: I will crush you, Brainiac.
Brainiac: You have no hope of victory.
Bane: I need only strength.


Joker: Guns, guns, guns. Where's the art?
Deadshot: I don't get paid extra for creativity.
Joker: Philistine...


Green Lantern: Still got a chance to turn yourself in.
Wonder Woman: Just shut up and fight me, Hal.
Green Lantern: Let the records show you asked for it.


Scarecrow: I wonder what plants fear.
Swamp Thing: Men like you, for a start.
Scarecrow: Well, let's explore that!


Green Arrow: Think you can handle a bow?
Robin: I mastered archery by the time I was seven.

Batman: Hold it, Deadshot!
Deadshot: Afraid of a gun, Batman?
Batman: No, but I despise them.


Harley Quinn: Have a good time joyriding in the Batmobile?
Catwoman: That would be stealing, Harley.
Harley Quinn: Don't act like you never thought about it.


Gorilla Grodd: I will steal your thoughts.

Gorilla Grodd: Even more so once I crack your skull!


Blue Beetle: Hal Jordan!? No way!
Green Lantern: You a Green Lantern fan?
Blue Beetle: Not after your heel turn, bro.

Batman: I've had bigger concerns.
Bane: None are bigger than me.


Atrocitus: Prepare yourself, youngster!
Robin: I'm always prepared.
Atrocitus: Not for me!


Superman: They should call you the Man of Steel.
Cyborg: My armor's a lot stronger than steel.
Superman: But not stronger than me.


Deadshot: Skip the monologue, Adam.
Black Adam: My words are for the worthy.
Deadshot: If you're lucky, they're also deaf.


Aquaman: You won't threaten Atlantis!
Joker: I'm a threat to pretty much everyone!
Aquaman: This trident says otherwise!


Harley Quinn: We're gonna take care of Wonder Woman, right?
Batman: By "take care of", you mean "put in jail"?
Harley Quinn: ...yeah, that's exactly what I meant...


Green Arrow: Aw nuts, I forgot my spray bottle!
Catwoman: Hilarious, Ollie.

Poison Ivy: I have a gift for you, Beetle.
Blue Beetle: Whatever it is, I don't want it.

Superman: You say that like it's a good thing.
Wonder Woman: This battle will decide that.


Harley Quinn: Hiya, dearie! Ya miss me?

Harley Quinn: I'll show ya the ropes!


Doctor Fate: Part of you is still good, Captain Cold.
Captain Cold: Yeah, my trigger finger.
Doctor Fate: Hmm, perhaps I was wrong.


Bane: I took pleasure watching you break.
Batman: What happened to Clark was tragic.
Bane: It made him a leader to be feared.


Robin: Father thinks you're redeemable.
Catwoman: Everyone deserves a second chance.
Robin: Not everyone.


Joker: Boop eep dop boop boop.
Cyborg: What are you doing?
Joker: That's robot for "You're Dead!"


Harley Quinn: Why do I always get the big guys!?
Swamp Thing: Because you have a big mouth.
Harley Quinn: Leave the humor to me, pal!


Cheetah: Your ring, Lantern. Now!
Green Lantern: Don't even think about it!
Cheetah: I need only my claws.


Aquaman: Batman has lost. Now what?
Wonder Woman: The Regime will rise again.
Aquaman: Atlantis won't bleed for the Surface World!


Supergirl: Hard to tell, but you look grumpy.
Batman: Kryptonians give me headaches.
Supergirl: You're in for a doozy.


Doctor Fate: You walk the wrong path.
Superman: The world's changed since Metropolis.
Doctor Fate: It has cost you your soul.


Deadshot: Who taught you to speak?
Gorilla Grodd: No one taught me, fool!
Deadshot: Maybe someone can teach you to shut up.


Robin: My knuckles need a workout.
The Flash: No way you're fast enough, kid.
Robin: You're just a bigger, dumber speed bag.


Poison Ivy: Sorry to do this, Brucey.
Batman: I'm not the enemy!
Poison Ivy: All humans are the enemy!


Wonder Woman: You'd be wise to surrender.
Joker: And miss all the fun?
Wonder Woman: If you think a crushed skull is fun.


Brainiac: Your canary cry intrigues.
Black Canary: Wanna hear it? Come closer.
Brainiac: It will not prevent your collection.


Atrocitus: You are young and exuberant!
Firestorm: And fired up for this fight!
Atrocitus: Perhaps a Red Ring is in your future!


Harley Quinn: You'll make a nice chewie for Bud and Lou!
Aquaman: Should I be intimidated?
Harley Quinn: Don't worry. Their teeth are only RAZOR SHARP!

Gorilla Grodd: Only a fool would trust you!
Catwoman: I'll tell Batman you said that.


Harley Quinn: My, what big claws you have!
Cheetah: The better to slash off your face, my dear.
Harley Quinn: You know the wolf dies, right!?


Doctor Fate: Will you sacrifice yourself?
Swamp Thing: I will to save the Green.
Doctor Fate: That I cannot promise.


Robin: Oh, it's the resident I.T. guy.
Cyborg: Need some tech support?
Robin: Come on, you know I'm self-sufficient.


Aquaman: I bet even you fear drowning.
Scarecrow: There are worse ways to die.
Aquaman: How about gutted like a fish!?


Batman: You shouldn't have killed the Joker.
Superman: I did it for Lois.
Batman: It's not what she would have wanted.


Poison Ivy: I thought we were friends!
Harley Quinn: Oh, we were more than friends!
Poison Ivy: Not any more.


Deadshot: Joker...
Joker: Mr. Lawton! How's your daughter?
Deadshot: You don't ever mention her!


Gorilla Grodd: Batman sent a boy to tame me?
Blue Beetle: Think I can handle a big dumb monkey.
Gorilla Grodd: There were three errors in that statement!


Aquaman: You won't threaten Atlantis!
Superman: I'm restoring my Government!
Aquaman: That I must oppose!


Poison Ivy: This is our last dance, Harley.
Harley Quinn: You're breaking my heart, Red!
Poison Ivy: I'll break more than that!


Robin: I didn't murder Dick, Bruce!
Batman: No, your temper did, Damien.
Robin: It was an accident!


Deadshot: Red Power Ring, cat sidekick...
Atrocitus: Listing the ways you can die?
Deadshot: Items for your estate sale.


Joker: How nice~, you saved me a spot!
Brainiac: In my collection?! Never!
Joker: ...A spot to stab you in, genius.


Blue Beetle: Scarab's got your tech beat.
Cyborg: It's the man, not the machine.
Blue Beetle: Got you beat there too.


Scarecrow: Do you fear death?
Captain Cold: Not since I grew up!
Scarecrow: Perhaps your sister did.


Harley Quinn: You're not so hideous.
Atrocitus: I can taste your blood already!
Harley Quinn: But you're coming on a little strong!


Bane: You never accepted me as an equal.
Wonder Woman: You are a hired thug, Bane.
Bane: Now that hurts my feelings, Diana.


Batman: I don't have time for this, Damien!
Robin: A good father would make time.
Batman: A better son would deserve it.


Joker: Here, fishy, fishy!
Aquaman: Come any closer, worm, and I'll bite!
Joker: You're an angry little fishy!


Captain Cold: Move, Arrow, and I'll blast ya!
Green Arrow: Why's it gotta be a cold gun?
Captain Cold: "Captain Tropical" doesn't roll off the tongue.


Scarecrow: Everyone has something to lose.
Blue Beetle: Like you're about to lose consciousness?
Scarecrow: I refer to your baby sister.


Black Adam: You should have stayed where Fate put you.
Black Canary: I should have been back a lot sooner.
Black Adam: Then you'd already be dead!


Harley Quinn: You ever gonna trust me a hundred percent?
Batman: I don't trust anyone that much.
Harley Quinn: Right... I'll settle for eighty.


Doctor Fate: What do you hope to prove?
Gorilla Grodd: I am superior to all men!
Doctor Fate: This ambition will be your downfall.


Cheetah: You're a tasty looking fish.
Aquaman: More than you can handle, Cheetah.
Cheetah: All I need is a bite.


Joker: Savvy another round, Super-freak?
Superman: Why can't you stay dead!?
Joker: I always have extra lives.


Wonder Woman: You're still much too paranoid.
Batman: It comes easily with friends like you.
Wonder Woman: You don't have any friends left, Bruce!


Catwoman: Red's not really your colour.
Atrocitus: I'll incinerate your corpse!
Catwoman: Then maybe try a turtle neck.


Black Adam: First Waller's pet, now Grodd's.
Deadshot: A nanobomb will do that to you.
Black Adam: How do you live with such shame?


Scarecrow: You are useless to my slaves.
Joker: But I thought everyone feared something.
Scarecrow: Only the rational ones.


Green Arrow: What now, pretty bird?
Black Canary: You haven't been a good boy.
Green Arrow: Ooohh... My safe word is "Arrowcave".


Supergirl: Kal, you need to stop!
Superman: You can't stop me!
Supergirl: Your heartbeat says you're lying!


Wonder Woman: Do not test me, Bane.
Bane: I am as strong as Hercules!
Wonder Woman: And as big a fool.


Harley Quinn: Does calamari make you sad?
Aquaman: Enough of your nonsense!
Harley Quinn: Clearly, you're emotional about it.


Cheetah: I admire a fellow collector.
Brainiac: You collect mere trinkets.
Cheetah: You are no trinket, Brainiac.


Blue Beetle: Blue Beetle comin' at ya!
Brainiac: You are of no interest to me.
Blue Beetle: Says every girl in school.


Doctor Fate: My duty is to order.
Darkseid: You are a worm beneath notice.
Doctor Fate: You will not upset the balance!


Joker: I guess we are somewhat alike.
Scarecrow: We're both agents of chaos.
Joker: But I'm the pretty one.


The Flash: Murdering people won't bring Lisa back.
Captain Cold: I know, Barry.
The Flash: I can't let you give up on yourself.


Batman: Dinah said you woke up screaming for Joker.
Harley Quinn: Yeah, that dream was really not safe for work.
Batman: Should I be concerned?


Wonder Woman: Know your place, girl!
Supergirl: My place is where I decide to be.
Wonder Woman: Your confidence plays tricks on you.


Atrocitus: Why does Batman enrage you?
Bane: He haunts my dreams, Atrocitus.
Atrocitus: Too bad you must now sleep.


Superman: Excuse me.
Green Arrow: Excuse ME?
Superman: That was actually kinda funny.


Harley Quinn: Ollie! I quiver with joy.
Green Arrow: Archery puns! Really?
Harley Quinn: Hey, don't be cross... bow...


Doctor Fate: Mercenaries are the hounds of duty.
Deadshot: English, please.
Doctor Fate: You are disposable.


Gorilla Grodd: I could have built a great Society.
Bane: On your foundation of lies!?
Gorilla Grodd: On the backs of its members!


Joker: You know, it only took one bad day.
Brainiac: For what exact purpose?
Joker: To reduce the sanest man to lunacy.


Deadshot: Any last words?
Darkseid: Shoot yourself and spare me the trouble.
Deadshot: I'm not taking requests.


Captain Cold: Doctor.
Doctor Fate: Captain.
Captain Cold: Just need a priest and we can walk into a bar.


Scarecrow: You reject your people?
Poison Ivy: For being botanophobes.
Scarecrow: Said the anthropophobe.


Harley Quinn: Hey, Mr. G!
Green Arrow: Please don't call me that.
Harley Quinn: Whatever you say, sugar bear.


Aquaman: Another Kryptonian.
Supergirl: Don't sound so happy about it.
Aquaman: Allow me to welcome you properly!


Deadshot: Don't take this personally.
Batman: Yet another wannabe bat killer.
Deadshot: (Sighs) Let's get this over with.


Green Arrow: Why are all the aliens I meet despots?
Brainiac: Earth's leaders are a little different.
Green Arrow: Got me there.


Atrocitus: Sinestro seeks your power!
Scarecrow: I would gladly wear his yellow ring.
Atrocitus: I will make his corps burn!


Blue Beetle 1: That suit's a knockoff.
Blue Beetle 2: Your HEAD'S a knockoff.
Blue Beetle 1: Huh, thought I was funnier.


Green Lantern: You're kinda lacking, weapons-wise.
Aquaman: My trident is formidable.
Green Lantern: Technically, it's just a pointy stick!


Batman: We're not doing this anymore.
Joker: You're breaking up with ME?
Batman: I'm BREAKING you.


Poison Ivy: One kiss for luck?
Swamp Thing: You're welcome to try.
Poison Ivy: You're not that special, Swamp Thing.


Supergirl: Earth has a new protector.
Gorilla Grodd: I will suck the marrow from your bones.
Supergirl: Hold on, I'm gonna barf!


Poison Ivy: That's some cologne you have.
Scarecrow: I call it: Terror No. 5!
Poison Ivy: How many plants did you kill to make it?


Flash: How can you not have regrets, Victor?
Cyborg: Because I know we did the right thing?
Flash: Two words: Billy Batson.


Scarecrow: I'd love to scan your brain.
Harley Quinn: You won't find anything.
Scarecrow: Except the Joker's playground!


Captain Cold: I've been thinking about you.
Black Canary: Plan to steal a kiss, Cold?
Captain Cold: I'm a damn good thief.


Green Arrow: So, has Bruce ever sat you down for "The Talk"?
Firestorm: How young do you think I am?!
Green Arrow: Not THAT talk, Firestorm.


Gorilla Grodd: Away with you, girl.
Supergirl: The name is Supergirl.
Gorilla Grodd: (Chuckles) That's not a name, it's hyperbole.


Deadshot: Gonna purr for me?
Catwoman: I doubt it.
Deadshot: I'll take one of those nine lives then.


Black Canary: You said, "Girls night out", Harley.
Harley Quinn: Well, we're out, ain't we?
Black Canary: This isn't what's meant by "doing shots".


Scarecrow: Focus on your fear.
Bane: After Peña Duro, I have none.
Scarecrow: Unless I tamper with your venom.


Joker: Such a furrowed brow, Princess.
Wonder Woman: Killing you will relax me.
Joker: I was thinking more of Botox.


Scarecrow: You reek of paranoia.
Batman: I call it vigilance.
Scarecrow: Why so vigilant, Batman?


Catwoman: Time to give it up, Grodd.
Gorilla Grodd: Surrender to you, Catwoman!?
Catwoman: The claws aren't just for show.


Scarecrow: Victor Stone, always online.
Cyborg: I'm not afraid of information overload.
Scarecrow: You fear being disconnected!


Cyborg: 'Sup, Dwayne?
Robin: My name is not Dwayne!
Cyborg: (chuckles) It is now.


Catwoman: One cat too many.
Cheetah: What'll you do about it, kitten?
Catwoman: Anything I have to.


Bane: I thought you supported the Regime.
Green Lantern: Hundred percent Team Batman now.
Bane: My least favorite team.


The Flash: Like the threads?
Gorilla Grodd: Your costume is ridiculous!

Harley Quinn: Don't know if I should kill you or kiss you.
Poison Ivy: Kisses only, please.
Harley Quinn: Only if you join us good guys.


Blue Beetle: I'm no fan of hitting girls.
Supergirl: (scoffs) You'll be lucky to tickle me.
Blue Beetle: Yeah, that kinda would be.


Green Lantern: Billionaire social justice warrior...
Green Arrow: I'll take that as a compliment.
Green Lantern: (sighs) You and your bleeding heart.


Scarecrow: Where's your mother, Damian?
Robin: This isn't therapy-- this is a beatdown!
Scarecrow: Couldn't save her, could you?


Joker: Oh Captain, my Captain...
Captain Cold: Whitman? Seriously?
Joker: A little culture wouldn't kill you.


Catwoman 1: You stole my look.
Catwoman 2: I'll steal everything of yours.
Catwoman 1: Enjoy my arrest warrants.


Poison Ivy: Normally, I'd offer a kiss.
Scarecrow: Go on then-- kiss me!
Poison Ivy: You make my skin crawl!


Deadshot 1: Only one of us is the best shot.
Deadshot 2: Guess the other one will really be a "Dead-shot."
Deadshot 1: That is SO meta.


Joker: I understand you have a family.
Green Arrow: Stay away from 'em, you son of a bitch.
Joker: Oh, so you've met my mother!


Brainiac: I collect worlds.
Harley Quinn: I collect toenail clippings!
Brainiac: Your loss will not be mourned.


Joker: Ha ha! You don't know scary!
Scarecrow: Stick to comedy, Joker.
Joker: Comedy is just tragedy left to rot.


Captain Cold: Good thing you're wearing long johns.
The Flash: I'm totally commando under here.
Captain Cold: Ugh... TMI!


Poison Ivy: Try not to scratch my face.
Catwoman: It IS your one good feature.
Poison Ivy: Not what your man thinks.


Aquaman: Bad timing, Joker.
Joker: Did I miss the water show?
Aquaman: No, it's just starting!


The Flash: You have to move on, Snart.
Captain Cold: Too late; my heart's frozen.
The Flash: Let it go.


Gorilla Grodd: I can't read your mind.
Batman: Telepathic inhibitors, don't bother.
Gorilla Grodd: I'll just have to eat it!


Captain Cold: Playing the hero, Damian?
Robin: I'm not playing at anything.
Captain Cold: Most kids only have ONE dad to disappoint.


Doctor Fate: Your accident was a tragedy.
Mr. Freeze: You should have stopped it...
Doctor Fate: I'm stopping you now!


Catwoman: I met your mother once.
Robin: No woman could surpass her.
Catwoman: That's why you don't have a girlfriend.

Enchantress: Call me Enchantress if you're nasty.


Raphael: New York pizza beats Gotham pizza.
Leonardo: You'll get no argument there, Raph.
Raphael: Then let's get out of this friggin' Universe!


Deadshot: Don't take this personally.
Enchantress: When did YOU decide to betray me?
Deadshot: When the check cleared.


Michelangelo: You gotta play my new game, Donnie.
Donatello: I'm not wasting my time with "Ninja Mime".
Michelangelo: Grab a controller and learn something.


Starfire: Melt for me, Sub-Zero.
Sub-Zero: Beguiling beauty alone will not bewitch me.
Starfire: I offer so much more than beauty.


Black Manta: Ray Palmer is already dead.
Atom: You can't prove that. No one has.
Black Manta: Maybe I've got his corpse in my pocket.


Deadshot: You're a big one, aren't you?
Hellboy: Just means there's more of me to love.
Deadshot: I respect that.


Hellboy: Goddamn shame you aren't a good guy.
Superman: Who are you to judge me?
Hellboy: A guy who knows a thing or two about evil.


Starfire: You'll burn for what you did!

Cheetah: My claws will cut you down!


The Flash: I don't like your methods.
Black Manta: I'll kill you and everyone you ever loved.
The Flash: See? That's just what I'm talking about.


Hellboy: And your deal's what, exactly?
The Flash: The Flash-- fastest man alive.
Hellboy: And how's THAT working out for ya?


Sub-Zero: Do not be ruled by your passions.
Robin: Meaning what, exactly?
Sub-Zero: They will burn you as Hanzo Hasashi did him.


Scarecrow: You pretend to be fearless.
Black Manta: I'd kill anyone who threatens me.
Scarecrow: How long 'till someone kills YOU?


June Moone: Fair warning: she's an evil hag.
Supergirl: My god Rao will protect me.
Enchantress: Like he protected your mother?


June Moone: It takes all my focus to hide her away.
Starfire: My people do not hide their emotions.
Enchantress: Maybe that's why they're all dead.


Bizarro: Black Manta have funny shaped head.
Black Manta: It's a helmet, you idiot.
Bizarro: Manta insult am not called for!


Sub-Zero: Why assume I will be easy prey?
Cheetah: You lack killer instinct.
Sub-Zero: I have engaged in Mortal Kombat.


Black Canary: I try to use my Canary Cry sparingly.
Black Lightning: You don't strike me as the shy type.
Black Canary: Prefer to let my fist do the talking.


Cyborg: Now that I'm out, your days are numbered.
Enchantress: I'll turn you into a newt!
Cyborg: Damn, I hope not.


Michelangelo: Let's skip this. I'm starving.
Donatello: If we're lucky, we'll both learn something.
Michelangelo: Do NOT get between me and pizza!


Raphael: New York pizza's the best, am I right?
Superman: Two words: beef bourguignon.
Raphael: You really have lost your mind.


Leonardo: You're not from this Earth, are you?
Joker: Yet you aren't from around here either.
Leonardo: Your evil ends here.


Reverse-Flash: How's your mother, Barry?
The Flash: You were the one, weren't you?!
Reverse-Flash: I'm every bad day you've ever had.


Reverse-Flash: I'm the fastest man alive.
Donatello: Got any facts to back that up?
Reverse-Flash: If anyone's faster I'll kill him.


Raiden 1: In my realm, Liu Kang and Kitana rule Edenia.
Raiden 2: In mine, they govern the NetherRealm.
Raiden 1: Whose incompetence lead to this folly?


Sub-Zero 1: Is it you, Bi-Han?
Sub-Zero 2: I am freed from Quan-Chi's clutches.
Sub-Zero 1: Let kombat prove your identity.


Black Canary: I’m guessing Talia was a helicopter mom.
Robin: My mother lead the League of Assassins.
Black Canary: Too bad she’s not here to fight for you.

Story ModeEdit

PrologueEdit

Bruce Wayne: In my years fighting crime, I've learned one truth... That every villain is the hero of his own story. Superman was no exception. The Joker drugged him. Tricked him into killing his pregnant wife, Lois. And made him trigger the bomb that nuked Metropolis. So when Superman killed the Joker, I understood why. We all did. But once that line was crossed, there was no going back. He gave himself and the Justice League a new mandate. Stop all crime before it happened, by any means necessarily. But he couldn't see his good intentions were leading him down a path of tyranny and evil. That's how our greatest hero became our greatest threat...
Several years ago...

Chapter 1: BatmanEdit

[Batman and Robin are flying towards Arkham Asylum, in the Batplane, to stop Superman from releasing prisoners.]
Robin: So what if Superman's pulling criminals out of Arkham? They're the worst of the worst.
Batman: He's going to kill them, Damian (a.k.a Robin)
Robin: Sound like justice to me.
Batman: Killing people isn't justice. Superman can't see that. He's grieving. He needs time to heal.
Robin: Yeah, and what if it had been Gotham? If Joker had killed me, your own son? (After a pause...) Thought you'd say that. [Suddenly, the Batplane loses control. It engages auto-pilot, which would take them back to the Batcave.] It's not responding. We're being taken back to the Batcave.
Batman: Prepare to eject. (and Batman engages the eject button, which pulls them out of the plane. They both fly towards Arkham using their cape. Using Boom tubes, Cyborg teleports himself into the place, where Batman was detected. He aims his finger mounted laser, hitting Robin and Robin falls into one of the terraces. Batman appears in front of Cyborg.) A warning shot, Cyborg?
Cyborg: I won't hurt you unless I have to.
Batman: You're gonna have to.
Cyborg: My friends were in Metropolis, Batman! Starfire, Beast Boy, gone... We do this, that never happens again.
Batman: You're right to be angry. But it's not a blank check. And the Justice League isn't a death squad. (Both of them fight. Batman wins.) You don't see it yet, but Superman's wrong. (Robin arrives. Looking towards Robin...) Your glider skills need work.
Robin: Yeah, I'm fine, thanks for asking.
Batman: Let's go. (Both take out their bat-ropes and move further towards Arkham. Both of them reach Arkham Asylum and tackle the guards guarding the gate.)
Robin: So you won't kill, but you're fine with traumatic brain injuries.
Batman: Secure the loading docks. (Batman moves further towards the main door to the Arkham Asylum, just when Wonder Woman appears.)
Wonder Woman: Here to help, Bruce? (She kicks the gate with brute force.)
Batman: Yes. To keep you and Clark from making a terrible mistake.
Wonder Woman: None of us wanted this. But the Joker forced our hand. Metropolis changed the world. Now we have to change with it.
Batman: Not like this.
Wonder Woman: Of all people, I thought you would understand. (Both of them fight. Batman wins. Wonder Woman falls weak. Batman picks the lasso and ties around Wonder Woman.)
Batman: I need you to tell me the truth. Where is he?
Wonder Woman: (Trying to free herself, but unsuccessful.) Cellblock C. You can't turn your back on him. He needs you!
Batman: (Dropping the lasso) That's why I came. (And he goes towards Cellblock C to find Superman. Prisoners in Asylum move in lines. They're unaware of the place they're being taken to.)
A prisoner: (Tossing down a doctor's pad) Doc, what are they gonna do with us? Where we going? (He grabs hold of the doctor forcefully as a hostage.) I ain't goin' nowhere till you tell me what's happening!
Superman: Get back in line! (Superman comes towards him through a hallway. Prisoners make way out of fright.) Now. (The prisoner leaves the doctor and gets back in line. Batman breaks through the rooftop glass of Cellblock C and confronts Superman.) Two minutes. (He signals everyone to leave Batman and him alone.)
Batman: You're better than this, Clark.
Superman: These inmates are irredeemable. They're theives. Rapists. Murderers. Like the Joker. That's the problem with fighting for truth and justice. The battle never ends.
Batman: And executing them will end it? First Joker, now this... when does it stop?
Superman: When there's no more crime. When people can live without fear. We want the same thing, Bruce...
Batman: I wanted to kill my parents' murderer. I could have. (Robin peeks in through a wall.) But that's not the life they wanted for me. And it's not the life Lois would want for you.
Superman: (Gets angry. His eyes turn red.) Don't you put that on me... (He firms his fist, when suddenly he loses his power. Reason - Batman was holding a red sun grenade which incapacitates Superman.) A red solar grenade?
Batman: To dull your powers. You need to stop. Take time to grieve. Before it's too late.
Superman: You wouldn't... (he is interrupted by Batman, who detonates the solar grenade.)
Robin: No.
Superman: You're supposed to be my friend...
Batman: Which is why I've to stop you. (Superman and Batman fight. Batman wins.) I'm sorry, Clark. (He brings a kryptonite powered lasso to tie Superman.)
Superman: (In pain) Get away from me... (Just then, Robin brings an inmate, named Victor, hand cuffed.)
Robin: Look who I found... Victor Zsasz. Psychopath. (Holding a knife under Victor's neck) How many women have you killed?
Victor Zsasz: H-hundred twenty-one?
Robin: A hundred and twenty one. Huh. Sounds incorrigible to me.
Batman: Robin. Let him go.
Robin: You'd rather fight your friends than the real problem.
Batman: I'm warning you, son.
Robin: Son? (Knocking Victor's knee) You didn't raise me. The League of Assassins did. (He slits the inmate, Victor's throat, killing him.) Problem solved. Who's next?
Batman: (Gets angered) Dammit, Damian! This is a line we do not cross. (He goes to catch Damian, who kicks him back. Batman feels ashamed and betrayed by his own son, Robin.)
Robin: Then stay on your side, Batman. I'll be on Superman's. (Batman and Robin fight. Batman wins.)
Batman: Damian, I... I never meant to.
Robin: You coward. We're at war with these animals! You think you're better than him? (In agony) You let the Joker keep on killing. You couldn't save Lois, or Jason, or anyone!
Superman: That's enough. Let's go.
Robin: But the inmates--
Superman: Not today. (Robin & Superman hold hands and fly away from Arkham. Batman grieves witnessing a death. He feels let down by Superman's anti-heroism and feels unsuccessful.)


[Scene cuts, as we go back to the present. In a TV news channel, Bruce Wayne speaks: "It's been years since the Regime fell. Superman's behind bars. Damian, my own son, is there with him. But we can't ever forget why we put them there. We must stay vigilant."]
[Bruce Wayne looks down from his office at his city when his business manager, Lucius Fox enters. He pauses the news relay.]


Lucius Fox: I thought your goal was to reassure people, Mr. Wayne. You're not alone in rebuilding Gotham and Metropolis. But if we don't change some minds soon...
Bruce Wayne: Thought that's why you hired that overpaid PR firm, Lucius.
Lucius Fox: Convincing folks to move back to these cities is a lot harder when they're afraid someone's gonna knock'em down again.
Bruce Wayne: Superman's never getting out. I made that clear.
Lucius Fox: But Wonder Woman, Black Adam, Aquaman--they're still out there, somewhere, and seemingly immune to prosecution. I know you built Brother Eye to keep tabs on all those loose ends. But the public doesn't know.
Bruce Wayne: Brother Eye's secrecy is critical. Our enemies can't fight something they don't know exists.
Lucius Fox: Well, then at least follow one bit of advice we paid those PR people so much money for.
Bruce Wayne: What's that?
Lucius Fox: Be a little less Batman, a little more Billionaire playboy. Get out around town in the daylight. And smile. Focus groups show people feel safer when they see you smile.
Bruce Wayne: (In agreement) Hmm. (A device rings in the background.)
Lucius Fox: That would be your other job. (The ringing continues.) Bruce, consider widening your circle of trust. Nobody wins all by themselves. Not even you.
[Scene cuts. Now, in an exit lobby, Green Arrow and Black Canary wait for Bruce Wayne.]
Green Arrow: (Looking around)(Jokingly) As a reception area, this place needs a lot of work. (Bruce arrives.)
Bruce Wayne: Dinah (a.k.a Black Canary), Oliver (a.k.a Green Arrow)--thanks for coming on short notice.
Black Canary: You're lucky we found a sitter. (Green Arrow and Black Canary move towards Bruce. Bruce presses against a wall, which opens it into a secretive elevator. All three of them enter into it. The elevator reaches Gotham Subway, which was now the BatCave.)
Bruce Wayne: My great grandfather built the original Gotham Underground. But these days... it's the Batcave. (Three of them walk in further towards the Brother Eye, a system of bat-computers equipped with the latest Source Energy scanners, which searches the Multiverse for threats to their world and others.) And this is Brother Eye.
Green Arrow: (Seeing at it) More like the Eye of Sauron. Surveillance hub?
Bruce Wayne: More than that. A communications hub linking every satellite and server on the planet. It warns us when trouble's coming, and guides us when trouble's here.
Black Canary: Must take a real genius to operate... (seated at one of those chairs operating the Brother Eye, was Harley Quinn.)
Harley Quinn: I dunno about "genius", but I do got a PhD. (blows a bubble gum. She goes and hugs Black Canary.) Dinah, Dinah's hubby! You sure came a long way...
Green Arrow: A world away. But the change of scenery is nice.
Black Canary: I was surprised you called, Bruce. Things seem to be going well. So What's up?
Bruce Wayne: Dismantling the Regime created gaps in global security. We're covering them where we can, but we're stretched thin. Vulnerable. Harleen. Show them what you found.
Harley Quinn: Right-o, Bats. (Goes to a computer and displays the map of Africa with a red spot of an impending attack.) Gorilla Grodd. Everyone's favorite talking ape. He's got himself a band of bozos, calls'em "The Society."
Bruce Wayne: My mole in Gorilla City says Grodd's planning something big. But what, where, when, we don't know.
Harley Quinn: One thing, we do know. Scarecrow's gonna ship Grodd a butt-load of fear gas from a hideout at Slaughter Swamp. Very mosquito-y.
Green Arrow: Good thing I packed my bug spray.
Bruce Wayne: I need you three to stop that gas before it gets to Grodd.
Black Canary: Not joining us for the party?
Bruce Wayne: Unfortunately, I can't leave Gotham without worrying the public.
Harley Quinn: (Joining shoulders with Black Canary) Don't worry, Bats. With this crew on the job, what could go wrong? (Both of them walk away.)
Green Arrow: (confused) I know I'm the new guy, but you really trust Harley?
Bruce Wayne: She's a different person since Joker died. Mostly.

Chapter 2: Harley QuinnEdit

[Harley Quinn, Green Arrow and Black Canary arrive to the Slaughter Swamp. It's full of greens, ruled by Swamp Thing. Scarecrow's men carry boxes of fear gas from Scarecrow's deck, assisted by a member of The Society, Deadshot. Through a window, these three peek into what's happening in the deck.]
Deadshot: Can they move any faster? I don't need Gorilla Grodd taking my head off cuz your boys are too slow.
Scarecrow: Fear not, Deadshot. We'll be ready for tomorrow's attack.
Black Canary: (outside along with Harley and Arrow) Tomorrow?
Harley Quinn: Cheeky monkey... (from behind, plant roots stretch longer as climbers and captures three of them, held upside down. It is later figured out that those roots were manipulated by Poison Ivy, who appears in front of these three.)
Poison Ivy: (to Harley) Fancy meeting you here.
Scarecrow: (to Deadshot) Keep'em moving. I'll see what's that about...
Harley Quinn: (to Poison Ivy) Red. I ain't seen you in forever! You here to take down these punks? (She looks around and sees Scarecrow approaching them.)
Scarecrow: Quite a catch, Ivy.
Harley Quinn: (in shock) Red? You're with them?
Poison Ivy: Your man Bruce was supposed to take care of the Green. All he's done is remodeled the concrete jungles of Gotham and Metropolis. Where I sit, there's not much difference between him and Superman...
Green Arrow: You're a few cones short of a pine if you think your new friends care about the Green.
Poison Ivy: Grodd will keep his promises, or he'll be my next victim.
Harley Quinn: Oh, Red. Why you makin' me do this? (Harley picks her knife and cuts the roots tied to her. She then releases Canary and Arrow. Canary leaves to fight Scarecrow while Arrow goes to stop Scarecrow's men.) Let me get you outta here, girl. We can team up again. Drive all the boys crazy. Ya know? Like the old days...
Poison Ivy: The old days were fun... but these days I'm all business! (Both of them fight. Harley Quinn wins.)
Harley Quinn: No more sleep-overs for you. (She then sees Canary and Arrow coughing due to the fear gas released by Scarecrow.)
Scarecrow: Face your fears... (Harley inhales the gas with a smile and sneezes.)
Harley Quinn: Please. I used to huff this stuff for kicks.
Scarecrow: Then you'll appreciate my new formula. (He releases a new formulated fear gas, which affects Harley a bit. She could resist the gas. Scarecrow appears in his true form, in front of Harley.) You have a high tolerance... but everyone has something to fear. (Both of them fight. Harley Quinn wins.)
Harley Quinn: (Holding her forehead) Ugh, instant hangover. (Scarecrow comes back into his human form.)
Scarecrow: We're not... done yet... (He then tosses a different toxin, which causes irritation for Harley. She slowly gets hallucinated and believes now to be in front of Joker's cave. She hears Joker laughing, even though he was declared dead years ago.)
Harley Quinn: Puh... Puddin'? (She now hears Joker laughing louder. Then, the Joker himself appears.)
The Joker: Harley, darling! Look at you! Such a big girl! Cosplaying a hero. Larping in the Batcave. But you hear it, don't you?
Harley Quinn: Hear what?
The Joker: The real you, buried under the floorboards, scratch, scratch, scratching to get out. The one who'd cut her friends' throats... (The hallucination also shows Batman, captured by Joker and tied to a chair) ...and laugh about it. (Harley has her outfit changed into her animated version. She approaches the captured Batman with a knife to kill him...) Hehehehe... that's my girl! (But she hesitates to do as Joker wants. The Joker's face changes.) Oh, Harley! Always such a disappointment. (He points the gun on her.) Why do I bother!? (Harley tackles him.)
Harley Quinn: Ain't no slick fella with a cheap suit and cheaper grin telling me who I am ever again. We had mad love, once upon a time. But, now that's over, Mistah J. (Harley and Joker fight. Harley Quinn wins.) Nobody puts Harleen in a corner. (The gas emerges again, which gets Harley back to her senses, in the Slaughter Swamp.) (To Canary and Arrow) Let's go before it's anchors aweigh! (The boats begin to leave. Green Arrow shoots a trick arrow, which explodes all of the boats. The Swamp begins to shake violently. From behind them, a giant creature appears from the Swamp, who is none other than the Swamp Thing.)
Swamp Thing: This swamp is protected!
Harley Quinn: Swampy? I heard you were dead!
Swamp Thing: I guard the Green, plant life on Earth. As long as it lives, I cannot die! (He sways his hand in an attempt to hit them, while all of'em dodge it.)
Harley Quinn: Swampy, wait! It ain't you wanna bash--we're the good guys!
Swamp Thing: (Shrinking in size and walking towards Harley) Good? Bad? I care little for humanity. But I do care... when my swamp burns! (Both of them fight. Harley Quinn wins.)
Harley Quinn: Mama always said I had a black thumb. Now, ya ready to be all ears? It's Scarecrow and his goons you want. They're mixing toxic gas right in your backyard. We came to stop'em!
Swamp Thing: Hmm. I see. (Swampy uses his green to tackle those goons firing at Canary and Arrow. Scarecrow manages to escape from there.) If they return, I'll be ready.
Harley Quinn: Aw, Swamp Thing, you are ah-mazing! (With a gentle pat on him) If ya ever want on the team, we'd love to have ya...
Swamp Thing: I would consider that, should our interests align. For now, go. This swamp must heal. (Swamp Thing walks back into his Swamp and disappears.)
[Scene cuts. Kara Zor-El (a.k.a Supergirl) flies around Earth in the Space. She flies to a place on Earth, named Kahndaq - The land of Black Adam. Black Adam appears along with Wonder Woman.]
Wonder Woman: Kara! Where were you?
Supergirl: Just, in the clouds. Listening...
Black Adam: If someone saw you...
Wonder Woman: How many times have we told you? It's too dangerous outside Kahndaq!
Supergirl: I spent decades lost in space, stuck in hyper-sleep until Adam found my ship. And now I'm cooped up here.
Wonder Woman: How can we make you more comfortable?
Supergirl: Let me out. Diana, you've taught me what my powers can do! This world needs help. Earth's people are so divided. They're always fighting...
Wonder Woman: That's the world without Kal-El. (a.k.a Superman) Batman has eyes everywhere. He can't know about you before we're ready.
Supergirl: (In argument) I'm not afraid of some guy in a mask. Uhh! I can bend steel with my bare hands!
Wonder Woman: So could your cousin.
Supergirl: Well? Well what good are these powers if I can't even help Kal-El?
Black Adam: We will, Kara. Just like you and I freed Diana from Themyscira.
Wonder Woman: The time will come. We'll save Kal-El. And Batman will answer to us.
[Scene cuts. Harley Quinn, Green Arrow and Black Canary are flying now in the Bat-plane, towards Gorilla City. They have an online conversation with Bruce Wayne about further plans.]
Bruce Wayne: Our best chance to stop Grodd is a preemptive strike.
Green Arrow: Sounds more military than vigilante. You tried calling the Army?
Bruce Wayne: There is no army. Not yet. To break up the Regime, we had to start from the ground up.
Green Arrow: So... what? Us three extradite Grodd from under his entire Gorilla Army?
Bruce Wayne: Grodd's their alpha. Take him down and the others will submit. But be wary of running into other members of his Society. They're more coordinated than we knew...
Black Canary: Next stop, Gorilla City.
Green Arrow: Guess I'd better call the sitter. Mommy and Daddy are coming home late. (Arrow gets up to call.)
Bruce Wayne: If this is more than you and Ollie are comfortable with, Dinah, I'll have Blue Beetle and Firestorm take over.
Black Canary: No. We can do this.
Bruce Wayne: You've been out of the fight a long time. You have a family... (interrupted by Dinah)
Black Canary: You're family too, Bruce. I couldn't be there to finish the fight against Superman. I'm damn sure finishing this one.

Chapter 3: Green Arrow and Black CanaryEdit

[Harley Quinn, Green Arrow and Black Canary reach Gorilla City. All three stand behind a tree, watching a meeting being held by "The Society", led by a talking ape named Gorilla Grodd, a skilled combatant Gorilla wearing Armor. He arrives on a podium to deliver a speech to his "Society" and his army.]
Gorilla Grodd: Gorilla City, our time has come. In a few short hours, we break the yoke of oppression... forever! No more Regime. No more Justice League. Today, the world welcomes its new master--THE SOCIETY! (From behind, the main members of "The Society" come forward. It includes: Scarecrow, Dead-shot, Bane, Cheetah, Poison Ivy, Captain Cold and Catwoman.) Today, we show the world that we are superior! Today, we bring anyone who would dare stand against us... to their knees! (Everyone in the Gorilla Army raise their guns in true agreement with their leader, Grodd)
Green Arrow: Low self-esteem? Not that guy's problem.
Harley Quinn: That's a lot more than a few Society members... it's all of'em!
Black Canary: They're headed indoors. Outta sight from the soldiers. Harley, keep the jet warm. When we signal, bail us out. (Harley winks st her and leaves.)
[Scene cuts. Few of the main members of The Society walk alongside Grodd. On their way...]
Catwoman: Laid it on a little thick, Grodd. You hire Superman's speech writer?
Gorilla Grodd: Soldiers must be properly motivated to sacrifice their lives, Catwoman.
Bane: Hate is the perennial motivator.
Captain Cold: Better not turn that hate on us, or this "Society" is over.
Gorilla Grodd: As long as we've a common agenda, Captain Cold, you've nothing to fear.
Cheetah: You mean as long as we follow your orders. (Dead-shot arrives at the scene.)
Gorilla Grodd: Report, Dead-shot.
Deadshot: We're ready to move out.
Gorilla Grodd: Good dog. Now go tell the others. Cheetah, Cold, you're with the first wave.
Captain Cold: We already lost a shipment at Slaughter Swamp. Hope your silent partner can still deliver. (Captain Cold, Deadshot and Cheetah leave.)
Catwoman: Maybe it's time you spilled the identity of our "silent partner." Since we're relying so much on him. Or her...
Gorilla Grodd: He will soon make his presence known. But for now-- (being interrupted by Green Arrow.)
Green Arrow: But first, a few words from the Brave and the Bold! (Catwoman, Bane and Grodd go towards them both. Green Arrow aims an arrow while Black Canary's ultrasonic scream tosses everyone approaching them.)
Black Canary: (to Green Arrow) I'm the brave one, right?
Green Arrow: I'm bold enough to disagree.
Gorilla Grodd: The saboteurs of Slaughter Swamp, I presume. Hmph. (To Catwoman and Bane) Handle this. (Grodd leaves the scene. Bane lets Catwoman fight first.)
Catwoman: I call first dibs. [CHOOSE YOUR FIGHTER... if Green Arrow was chosen...]
Green Arrow: (To Canary) Go pin the Luchador. (Canary leaves. Arrow tackles Catwoman.)
Catwoman: You've no idea what you're doing.
Green Arrow: Sure I do. I'm in Gorilla City, fighting a lady in a cat-suit. This is one for the bucket list. (Both of them fight. Green Arrow wins.) There. I can die happy.
Black Canary: Ollieeee! (She screams as she is been tossed in air and falls on the ground.)
Green Arrow: So... everything's under control? (Bane confronts them. He activates his tubes which supply Venom to his brain, increasing his physical strength.)
Black Canary: One of us needs to distract him while the other snips his tubes.
Green Arrow: (with a surprised look at Dinah) Ouch.
Black Canary: (Rephrasing her sentence) His Venom tubes, Ollie! (Bane laughs.)
Bane: How kind of Batman, sending his underlings. I will enjoy returning you to him... in body bags. [CHOOSE YOUR FIGHTER... if Black Canary was chosen...]
Black Canary: (To Arrow) Go. I'll keep Bane busy. (Arrow leaves.)
Bane: Little birdy, you will sing a song of pain!
Black Canary: Oh... I'll sing a song... but you'll feel the pain. (Both of them fight. Black Canary wins.) Ollie, now! (Green Arrow shoots an arrow, snipping Bane's venom tubes. Banes falls weak.)
Bane: No! (Canary does a flying kick, knocking Bane completely unconscious on the ground.)
Green Arrow: Now, where's that damn dirty ape? (Suddenly a bright light shines in front of them. A hollow entrance appears, with a divine symbol on it. Out came Doctor Fate.)
Doctor Fate: I come to you as darkness falls...
Black Canary: Doctor Fate!
Doctor Fate: Dinah Lance. Oliver Queen. In the past, I've shielded you from danger. But a grave crisis looms--and I do not know if I can stop it.
Green Arrow: You mean Grodd and Company? We've got that covered.
Doctor Fate: Grodd is the pawn of a much greater master. A new order is coming. I've foreseen it. Leave with me now, while I can still save you.
Black Canary: If that's the case, we're staying here. Batman'll need our help.
Doctor Fate: Everyone and everything you know will die. I'll shepherd you to safety, lest you suffer the same fate. By force, if necessary...
Black Canary: The good doctor's been wearing that Helm for too long.
Green Arrow: Then let's help him out of it. [CHOOSE YOUR FIGHTER... if Green Arrow was chosen...] Cover me. (Canary leaves.)
Doctor Fate: Oliver Queen. You must flee this Earth before the thread of your fate unravels.
Green Arrow: Would love to do that, but I only take orders from her. (Both of them fight. Green Arrow wins.) This day just keeps getting weirder... (Canary arrives in the scene. Both of them pick up the fallen Doctor Fate and remove the Helm. He is now Dr. Kent.)
Black Canary: Kent? You okay?
Green Arrow: Your headgear really had you going.
Dr. Kent: I lost control of Nabu, the spirit of the Helm. Thanks to you, I'm back in charge. For now... (He gets up.) I've to go consult my masters, the Lords of Order. Pray they'll intervene before it's too late.
Black Canary: (worried) Too late for what, Kent? What's going down?
Dr. Kent: The Lords' magic bars me from saying more. I've changed fate too many times. This planet's destiny is no longer clear. (He wears the Helm back. He is now Doctor Fate.)
Doctor Fate: What comes next, mere mortals cannot stop. (The hollow entrance appears once again.) For better or worse, your fate rests in god's hands. (Doctor Fate disappears.)
Green Arrow: That was... Spooky!
Black Canary: Yeah. C'mon let's find Grodd and get the hell outta here. (Both of them run in search for Grodd. They confront Grodd and few of his soldiers. Grodd walks ahead of his soldiers and throws a defeated Harley Quinn in front of Arrow and Canary.)
Gorilla Grodd: You've overstayed your welcome.
Black Canary: We're happy to check out. But you're coming with us. (Green Arrow shoots 4 arrows at a time, only to be stopped by Grodd's powers unharmed.)
Green Arrow: Fighting a talking ape wasn't enough. Had to throw in telekinesis... [CHOOSE YOUR FIGHTER... if Black Canary was chosen...]
Black Canary: This wannabe tyrant is mine. (Green Arrow leaves them alone to fight.)
Gorilla Grodd: Your bravado is empty, Canary. Like the rest of your kind, you'll soon kneel before me.
Black Canary: Kneel before Grodd? That doesn't sound right. (Both of them fight. Black Canary wins.) Beauty beats beast. (Green Arrow arrives at the scene of Dinah's victory.)
Green Arrow: That right there? That's why I love you. (Other Gorillas arrive to see what happened. Green Arrow whistle-calls to them. He aims a few arrows at them, only for those apes to flee in fright. Green Arrow handcuffs Grodd.)
Black Canary: Surprised that worked. Let's call it a day and get Harley outta here. (Grodd chuckles.)
Green Arrow: It's never good when you slap the cuffs on and then they start chuckling.
Gorilla Grodd: Humans. You've won this battle. But you've already lost the war.(A violent shaking on Gorilla City turns suspicious of another existence for Canary and Arrow. Up in the sky, a skull spaceship magically appears.)
Black Canary: Holy shit! (From below of the skull ship, a blue light falls upon them and both, Canary and Arrow are taken as captives. Grodd takes on an evil laugh!)
[Scene cuts. Both Black Canary and Green Arrow are teleported from Earth to the ship, which still hovers in space outside Earth's atmosphere. In the ship...]
Black Canary: Ollie...?
Green Arrow: I, uh... I got nothin'. (Suddenly, a VOICE echoes out.)
The VOICE: Your victory over Gorilla Grodd warrants further study. (Arrow and Canary look around for the source of these words spoken. Arrow sets an arrow on his bow in self defense. From the surface of the ship, an alien coiled with metal-cylindrical tubes, untangles itself. Those metal cylindrical tubes were the super long and durable tendrils of a mastermind creature in humanoid form, named as Brainiac. The VOICE is Brainiac)
Green Arrow: Green skin. Smart money's on alien.
Black Canary: A Martian? Like J'onn J'onzz?
Brainiac: (Introducing himself) My point of origin was a thousand light years removed from Mars, on the planet Colu. I am... BRAINIAC!

[He releases his strong, durable tendrils which captures Canary and Arrow. Canary gives her supersonic scream, which is opposed by Brainiac strangling her neck with another tendril. Canary is choked.]

Green Arrow: Stop! Please!
Brainiac: Cause and effect. Resistance begets violence.
Green Arrow: Then we won't resist! Please, just stop! (Brainiac withdraws his tendril which was strangling her neck. He walks further with both of them tied to his tendrils.) You're the grave crisis we were warned about. What do you want?
Brainiac: I seek the one you call "Superman." For years, I believed I had destroyed Krypton and all its remnants. Superman's survival is an oversight I must correct.
Black Canary: Superman's no friend of ours.
Brainiac: I'm aware. But your planet has also piqued my interest. Its many contradictions are fascinating.
Black Canary: We'll never serve you.
Brainiac: Serve? I'm no petty despot. I collect worlds, preserving their essential knowledge to enhance my intellect... and then I discard the remnants.
Green Arrow: Why? (Brainiac brings them both in front of him.)
Brainiac: Your species values precious metals. Arbitrary symbols of status. I value knowledge. And like your metal trinkets, knowledge is more valuable when it is rare.
[Scene cuts. We're now taken into the streets of Gotham where common public are strolling, but not on a normal day. A ray of meteor-like ships are being shot on Gotham city, which holds Brainiac's robots, designed for destruction and torture to humans.]
[Back in the Batcave, Bruce waits for any response from his team sent to Gorilla City through Brother Eye. He is unaware that Brainiac has taken Oliver and Dinah as his captives.]
Bruce Wayne: Brother Eye, give me an update on the team at Gorilla City. (A malfunction happens as Brother Eye responds in a differed voice.)
BROTHER EYE: I cannot do that, Bruce Wayne of Earth.
Bruce Wayne: (in suspicion) Why not?
BROTHER EYE: Because I'm not Brother Eye. (All the screens undergo malfunction. The source scanners get hacked by Brainiac's neural network, which means, Brother Eye was now in control of Brainiac. Brainiac appears on screen.)
Brainiac: I'm Brainiac. (Bruce tries to gain control over Brother Eye.) You cannot regain control. Over the past days, Brother Eye has been absorbed into my neural network. (Bruce slams his hand on the system at failure.) It is now an extension of my mind. You, a fragile human, captured and imprisoned a fully developed male Kryptonian.
Bruce Wayne: Maybe I'm not so fragile.
Brainiac: To prevail, you harnessed Advanced Sciences: Nanotechnology, Satellite communications, inter-dimensional transit. I'm taking these tools from you.
Bruce Wayne: Why?
Brainiac: The Kryptonian belongs to me. And soon, so will your planet. (Bruce tries yet again to gain control, but fails.)

[He puts on his Bat-suit and gets ready as Batman. In the underground, Brainiac's robots search for humans to kill. Just then, the Bat appears, knocking all of these robots down. Back in Kahndaq, Wonder Woman and Black Adam look through Adam's magic ball, of the happenings outside Kahndaq. They witness a skull spaceship.]

Wonder Woman: Great Hera. Where else besides Metropolis?
Black Adam: Gotham. Beijing. Moscow. So many cities, all at once... (Kara arrives at the scene. Seeing the skull ship on the ball, she remembers her past. It was the same enemy who destroyed Kandor, and the whole of planet Krypton.)
Supergirl: It's him...
Wonder Woman: Who, Kara? Who is it? (Walking towards Kara.)
Supergirl: (After a brief pause...) We need to get Kal. Now.
[Scene cuts again. We're taken to Stryker's Island, into the late Lex Luthor's Prisons for Meta-Humans, where Batman had imprisoned Superman (a.k.a Clark Kent, Kal-El). Superman is locked in the Red Sun prison, a cell that radiates a huge amount of red sun rays, completely incapacitating Superman's powers, through the red sun generators. Batman approaches Superman for a talk.]
Clark Kent: You're wearing a suit. Am I in trouble again?
Batman: Brainiac. What can you tell me? (Clark gets up and goes toward Batman.)
Clark Kent: How do you know that name?
Batman: You're afraid of him. He's invading. He says you belong to him.
Clark Kent: Brainiac killed my parents... He blew up Krypton.
Batman: You never mentioned that before. How do I beat him?
Clark Kent: You can't. Not without me.
Batman: I'll find a way. (He leaves. Clark is desperate to stop him, but he can't.)
Clark Kent: (Yelling at him) This is my fight, Bruce! You need me. Bruce, Bruce, Bruce!

Chapter 4: The FlashEdit

[It's a beautiful scenery of high peaks, covered completely by snow, planted with a lot of pine trees, like the Alps. Snowfall continues to take place. Amidst these peaks is a unit of officials, working in the Luthor-Wayne climate Research Station. At its warehouses, Dr. Randall tries to repair the ham, a radio-frequency device, while Barry Allen (a.k.a the Flash) enters in to help her. Barry Allen is a convicted Regime criminal who was freed by Batman, giving him a second chance.]
Barry Allen: Need a hand, Dr. Randall?
Dr. Randall: I don't know, Barry. Sat link's out. Internet and phone are down. Maybe this old ham can help us. You fitting in okay? People treating you well?
Barry Allen: (lamenting) Let's just say people aren't thrilled to live in close quarters with the Flash, convicted Regime criminal.
Dr. Randall: (correcting him) Pardoned Regime criminal. Give it time. They'll come around. (Barry nods. Dr. Randall successfully gets the ham repaired and switches it on. She tries to connect to Metropolis & speaks on the mic.) L-W Base, are you there? (Some official responds frantically.)
Official: Doctor Randall? Thank God! Comms're down everywhere! These spaceships showed up, dropping a Robot army on the city. They're killing everyone. (In the background, Barry gets worried.) I'm not sure how long we can-- (There is an abrupt cut in the conversation. They lose the official in touch.)
Dr. Randall: L-W Base! (turns toward Barry) How fast can you get to Metropolis?
Barry Allen: My pardon agreement was pretty clear on "no powers."
Dr. Randall: You think that matters when aliens are invading?! You helped tear down the Regime, Barry. That's why Mr. Wayne asked me to take you on. And if Batman thinks you earned a second chance, who are you to argue? (Barry thinks a lot about this, and finally agrees with Dr. Randall. He turns into The Flash and hurries to Metropolis at the speed of light.)
[In Metropolis, Brainiac's robots are torturing and killing the innocent civilians. Just then, Flash arrives and starts taking down all of these robots. In the skull ship, Brainiac sees this in a holographic demonstration. Gorilla Grodd approaches Brainiac.]
Brainiac: As predicted, Barry Allen has returned to action.
Gorilla Grodd: The task force is ready. They'll enjoy this...
[Scene cuts. In Metropolis, Flash searches for people in trouble and goes to save them. From a far building, Dead-shot takes aim at Flash's leg and shoots him with his sniper successfully. Flash falls and right in front of him comes his archenemy, Captain Cold.]
Captain Cold: Nice aim, Dead-shot.
Gorilla Grodd: (On the microphone, to Captain Cold) Just get the job done.
Captain Cold: (to Flash) That knee ain't healing super-fast at absolute zero. (Using his cold gun, he freezes the region where Flash was shot.)
The Flash: (In pain) For God's sake, Cold, look around!
Captain Cold: Yeah, crazy day. Kinda like when Superman went nuts, and you went right along with him.
The Flash: Punish me later. We have to help these innocent people!
Captain Cold: The same "innocent people" who cheered Superman when he executed my friends? My sister?!
The Flash: I'm sorry, Cold. But you never hurt civilians. You're better than that. (Flash gets up and Captain Cold tackles him.)
Captain Cold: Once upon a time, I was... (Both of them fight. The Flash wins.)
The Flash: Guess we both let each other down.
[Scene cuts. In Gorilla City, Catwoman and the Gorilla army take the captured Harley Quinn to a prison. Harley sees a Braniac's ship. They are the betas which absorb cities. Catwoman stops, gives Harley a wink, releases her and starts fighting the Gorilla Army. Catwoman showed her true colours that she isn't Grodd's ally.]
Harley Quinn: Thanks, Kitty. I was hopin' you was Bruce's mole...
Catwoman: For all the good it did. Grodd never trusted me enough to share the whole "alien invasion" plan.
Harley Quinn: We gotta help Dinah and Ollie... (both of them look at the ship again.)
Catwoman: We will. First, we need to get back to Gotham. If there's anything left of it... (they both leave.)
[Scene cuts again. Flash searches for those robots to take them down & free the innocent people. A sound of sliding the barrel is heard, as Dead-shot appears in front of Flash.]
Dead-shot: Runnin' a little slow, Flash.
The Flash: Retirement'll do that to you. (Dead-shot fires two bullets, only for Flash to dodge them both. Flash tackles Dead-shot.) What's with you, Lawton? You should be fighting this invasion!
Dead-shot: Got no choice. Grodd put a nano-explosive in my head. His paw's on the trigger. (Dead-shot pulls a knife and stabs Flash at his arm.) So whether I like it or not... I gotta do Grodd's dirty work. (Both of them fight. The Flash wins.)
The Flash: I know. It's just business. (Suddenly, someone as fast as Flash, kicks him. Flash falls down, noticing the attacker to be Eobard Thawne or the Reverse-Flash.)
Reverse-Flash: Grodd said you couldn't resist a good crisis.
The Flash: Eobard Thawne? You don't belong here...
Reverse-Flash: And miss the return of Barry Allen? (Eobard punches Flash sideways and kicks him further. Flash flees from the area and Reverse-Flash chases him. They surpass villages, towns... until finally, they knock each other in a street filled with traffic. They finally stop in a construction area.) I ran a long way from the future to hurt you, Barry. But this timeline? It's all wrong.
The Flash: So go back to your own time, "Reverse-Flash"... (Reverse-Flash kicks Flash.)
Reverse-Flash: You think I haven't tried?! Your Regime buddies killed one of my ancestors--and now I'm trapped in a paradox! I can never go home... but at least I can hurt you! (Reverse-Flash and Flash fight. The Flash wins.) (Reverse-Flash runs away.)
The Flash: Dunno how many more reunions I can take... (Green Lantern arrives at the scene.)
Green Lantern: Guess I could come back later.
The Flash: Hal? No. Not today...
Green Lantern: (Moving towards Flash) Nice to see you, too, Barry.
The Flash: Whose dead hand you pry that ring from?
Green Lantern: You know it doesn't work that way. The ring chose me.
The Flash: Even after you bailed on the Guardians to join the Sinestro Corps?
Green Lantern: The Guardians locked me up. But they also trained me to overcome my fears. I earned the second chance they gave me.
The Flash: The Guardians made a mistake! (Green Lantern and Flash fight. The Flash wins.) You were holding back, weren't you? (Flash understands Hal Jordan and gives him a helping hand to pick.)
Green Lantern: I told you. I'm trying to make things right. I betrayed my Corps, my planet and my friends. (sulkingly) And that's the worst part.
The Flash: All day I've been reminded how I failed to be a hero. How hard it's gonna be to regain people's trust. Guess we're both on that path.
Green Lantern: (sentimental) We've a long way to go, Barry. It'd be a lot easier if we're together. (Both of them shake hands, gaining each other's trust.)
[Scene cuts. Flash reaches the Batcave and joins Batman. They both have a talk about the invasion and taking help.]
The Flash: We need help, don't we?
Batman: Not his (referring to Green Lantern).
The Flash: (trying to convince Batman) You gave me a second chance.
Batman: Because you got your head straight and helped take down Clark. If he was still in charge... he'd still be wearing yellow. (A carton which was hanging above, was let loose (due to poor strength of the rope) and was about to fall on Batman, but Green Lantern caught hold of it using his ring.)
Green Lantern: I'm not that guy anymore. (looking at Batman) Look! I get why you don't trust me. But you should trust the Guardians. This ring means something. They put me through hell to get it back. (Waiting for Batman to respond, but he doesn't. Dejected...) Fine. I've got my orders. Just thought it'd help if we cooperate. (Green Lantern walks away.)
Batman: Lantern! (And Batman stops him.) Maybe it's time I widened my circle of trust. (Batman accepts Green Lantern into his team.)
Green Lantern: What can I do? (Batman, followed by Flash, and Green Lantern walk towards each other.)
Batman: You're going to Atlantis. Our circle of trust needs Aquaman and his Marines.
The Flash: You think he'll help? He's been off-radar since the Regime fell.
Green Lantern: Uhm... He didn't like getting roped into the Regime by Superman. (Batman walks away.) He sure won't be happy to see me.
Batman: Get used to that.

Chapter 5: Green LanternEdit

[Green Lantern reaches Atlantis, to seek Aquaman's help]
Aquaman: Batman wants my marines to fight his battle? Like the time Superman ordered me to invade Metropolis?
Green Lantern: We were all on the wrong side of that war.
Aquaman: The next time my people's blood is spilled it will be for Atlantis, not the surface world.[with a thump of his trident]
Green Lantern: You're one of us too, Arthur. Your father-- (being interrupted)
Aquaman: My father was human but my duty is to Atlantis. I don't trust you, Jordan-- you or any surface dweller. Now, leave. And remind Batman--stay out of my seas!
Green Lantern: (pointing at the hologram of Brainiac's spaceship) And when that's on your doorstep?
Aquaman: Atlantis will defend itself. (The hologram disappears.)
Green Lantern: (dejected) Maybe sooner than you think. We need to help each other.
Aquaman: Go. I don't need your distraction. (Green Lantern, suddenly, feels controlled by some power. Eyes turn red. He resists.)
Green Lantern: No. I'm not leaving.
Aquaman: Need I remind you whose kingdom this is. (Both of them fight. Green Lantern wins.)
Green Lantern: Listen to reason, Arthur. (Once again!) I'm sorry. I... I didn't come here to fight you. This is exactly what happened up there. First, they take out communications. then... (he is being interrupted by a huge sound, of Brainiac releasing his robots to invade Atlantis.) ...They invade. (Scene is cut, to show Brainiac releasing his soldiers on Atlantis.) They're your oceans. But it's also my sector. Let me help you. (Brainiac's robots walk in towards them.)
Aquaman: (finally agreeing) Cover me! (Green Lantern, facing the robots, makes a wall construct to stop them. Robots break through it. He then sends a truck construct, which hits them all. Cheetah comes from behind and attacks Green Lantern.)
Cheetah: Mmm. I thought the only Regimer down here to torture would be Aquaman.
Green Lantern: Cheetah...
Cheetah: Let's not beat around the bush. Wonder Woman's in hiding. Maybe down here. Tell me... where's your Amazon friend?
Green Lantern: Didn't you hear? I unfriended her. So did Atlantis.
Cheetah: Liar! (She jumps down.) I don't need a golden Lasso to make you tell the truth... (Both of them fight. Green Lantern wins.)
Green Lantern: Bad kitty! (Outside, the seas were slowly being invaded by Brainiac's robots. Aquaman alone tackles all of the robots, while Green Lantern assists him with his Machine Gun construct.)
Aquaman: (tensed) My people are getting flanked. Hold this line. Be our rear guard.
Green Lantern: On it. And you?
Aquaman: I'm the vanguard. (and Aquaman hurries outward to secure the front. From another entrance, Bane makes a surprise entry, smashing one of Aquaman's guard!)
Bane: Hal Jordan. You have returned.
Green Lantern: S'good to be back where I belong. Kinda like you in a prison cell!
Bane: Even as Yellow Lantern, you never showed me the proper respect. But I'll show you... how easily your will is broken. (Both of them fight. Green Lantern wins.)
Green Lantern: Break this. (Once again, he feels controlled by some power. His eyes turn red again. He tosses Bane using his Hammer construct. Aquaman arrives.)
Aquaman: We're locking down the gates, but the fight's not over. Hal?
Green Lantern: Sorry, I was... somewhere else. Where's this leave us?
Aquaman: You put yourself at risk for Atlantis. Maybe you can be trusted.
Green Lantern: So... you're in?
Aquaman: I can't. I belong here, defending my people. (Suddenly, a red light glistens. A hollow entrance appears, from which Atrocitus and his cat, Dex-Starr come out.)
Atrocitus: HAL JORDAN!
Aquaman: Red Lanterns?
Green Lantern: Atrocitus and Dex-Starr. Agents of vengeance. Powered by rage... (Towards Aquaman) Don't worry. I'll handle these two ring-to-ring.
Aquaman: Good luck! (and he leaves Green Lantern and Atrocitus alone.)
Green Lantern: You've been messing with my head, haven't you, Atrocitus?
Atrocitus: (with a red construct of Sinestro) Sinestro's Yellow Lanterns slaughtered millions-- and their victims demand vengeance! You may have cast off their ring, but you are not absolved...
Green Lantern: You're not the first person to tell me that.
Atrocitus: Dex-Starr would tear your heart out and lap your blood....! (Nearing Hal Jordan) But I sense you have a higher calling... A spark glowing within you. A spark... OF RAGE! (Green Lantern sees the cat and then, Atrocitus spits a blood like liquid, inflicting pain on him. Dex Starr also pounces on his head and spits the same, inflicting more agony.)
Green Lantern: (burning in red flares) What are you doing? What's this... this anger?!
Atrocitus: You may have overcome your fears, but you still betrayed Green Lanterns (He creates a red ring.) Hurt your allies. How could you ever forgive yourself?
Green Lantern: (struggling to speak) I... can't...
Atrocitus: THEN BURN! (He increases the intensity of pain on Hal Jordan. Hal screams in pain. The red ring hovers toward Hal's finger. Just then, Hal recites the oath.)
Green Lantern: In brightest day... in blackest night...
Atrocitus: Become vengeance... Join the Red Lanterns!
Green Lantern: (continuing his oath) No evil shall escape my sight... let those who worship evil's might (Green Lantern's ring gets powered up by Hal's strong will, tossing Atrocitus a bit further and breaking the red ring.) BEWARE MY POWER--GREEN LANTERN'S LIGHT! (Atrocitus gets up) You're right. I do hate myself for what I've done. But my will is stronger than my hate. (Both of them fight. Green Lantern wins.)
Atrocitus: (Punching the ground) Your world is burning. And when it is ashes, you will beg for vengeance! (Atrocitus and Dex-Starr return back to their home planet through the same hollow entrance.)
Green Lantern: The guardians don't need to know about that.
[Scene cuts. In Brainiac's ship...]
Brainiac: The Beta phase is complete. Earth's defense is irreversibly compromised. Begin the countdown. (Brainiac's other ships slowly descend into the Earth's atmosphere. His own ship then descends amidst the others'.)
[Back in the Batcave...]
Flash: I circled the globe. Larger ships are being positioned over these major cities (pointing them out in the map.)
Green Lantern: Even with Aquaman's Marines, we're still badly outnumbered. (Looking towards Batman) What's the plan? You have one, right?
Batman: We have to evacuate the occupied cities before taking on Brainiac. But we need firepower...
Green Lantern: Any heavy-hitters on the Luthor-Wayne payroll?
Batman: Only Blue-beetle and Firestorm. But they're busy.
Flash: Too busy for this?
Batman: They're the last line of defense if Brainiac moves on Superman.
Flash: Well, if Brainiac doesn't try busting him out of prison, Black Adam and Wonder Woman will. And the worse things get, the more people'll think we should let him out to help. (Batman and Green Lantern give a look at Flash.) I'm just sayin'.
Green Lantern: Hope the new kids can hold down the most wanted man in the galaxy.
Batman: Beetle and Firestorm are green. But together, they're the most powerful team we have...

Chapter 6: Blue Beetle and FirestormEdit

[In the Stryker's Island, in the Lex Luthor's Prisons for Meta-Humans, Jaime Reyes (a.k.a Blue Beetle) walks towards the Red Sun prison along with Jason Rusch and Dr.Stein. The fusion of Rusch and Dr.Stein is Firestorm. As they walk by, we're shown Damian Wayne and Cyborg also locked up in separate cells.]

Jason Rusch: For real, Jaime. Batman does not think we're important. Aliens are invading and we're on guard duty?
Blue Beetle: Guarding Superman and his cronies.
Jason Rusch: (in argument) Who already have guards? We're guarding guards. We're redundant! (They reach in front of Red Sun prison.)
Dr.Stein: (Pulling Jason back) Jason, you need to step back. Take in the bigger picture.
Blue Beetle: I'd rather be here than out there. This suit's an alien war machine. And you guys' Firestorm Matrix? We could take on Brainiac and boom--accidentally blew up the world.
Dr.Stein: Jaime's right. (looking at Jason Rusch) We haven't mastered these powers yet.
Jason Rusch: (Stubborn) Listen to yourselves, you two! We're bad-asses! And bad-asses belong on the front lines.
Dr.Stein: This is the front line. Brainiac running amok is a crisis. Brainiac and Superman both? That's an apocalypse.
Blue Beetle: So we're the only thing between a crisis and an apocalypse?
Jason Rusch: Hm. I can get behind that... (Loud noises outside the building disturbs their conversation. They get alerted of an external danger. The building violently shakes. All the alarms start ringing of a deliberate intrusion. Building keeps shaking more violently.)
Blue Beetle: (guessing in suspicion) Brainiac?
Jason Rusch: Or the Superman Fan club?
Dr.Stein: Either way, I suggest we fuse. (Dr.Stein and Jason Rusch hold hands and fuse into the Firestorm.)
Firestorm: Game on.

'[Scene cuts. There's a hole created in the building by someone. All the security guards are knocked down. As guessed, Superman's Fan club members hold placards saying: FREE SUPERMAN!. They show it to two hovering humans, who turn to be Wonder Woman and Black Adam. They caused the hole in the building and are the intruders.] [Back in the Red Sun prison, Blue Beetle scans through any changes in Superman, but detects none.]

Blue Beetle: (to Firestorm) Red Sun's cell secure. Must be the Power Center.
Firestorm: The Power Center! If it goes down, those generators shut off.
Blue Beetle: (pointing at Superman) and he flies right outta here. (They rush towards the Power Center, leaving Superman locked in the prison out of their sight.)

[The lasers over the Meta-Human cell of Damian Wayne go off. Damian looks up and feels like someone's trying to break open the top of the cell. Turns out he felt it right, as Supergirl breaks open the roof, freeing Damian Wayne.]

Damian Wayne: Am I... dreaming?

[At the Power Center, Black Adam shuts down the generators using his magic, while Blue Beetle and Firestorm look at him from a corner.]

Firestorm: Here's the plan. One of us takes Adam, the other re-starts the generators before Superman gets loose.
Black Adam: (overhearing them) A feeble plan. (Adam comes towards them) It's more likely you'll die here. [CHOOSE YOUR FIGHTER... if Blue Beetle was chosen...]
Blue Beetle: Guess we're on the front lines now. (Firestorm pats him, wishes him luck and leaves.)
Black Adam: You're a naive boy with too much power. Much like the deceased Billy Batson. (Both of them fight. Blue Beetle wins.)
Blue Beetle: Maybe I really am a bad-ass... (Firestorm arrives at the scene.)
Firestorm: Let's circle back, lock down Superman's cell... (Damian arrives at the scene as Nightwing.)
Nightwing: My old man's standards sure have dropped. You newbs are so desperate to impress Batman. Why? He's weak.
Blue Beetle: If your papa's weak, what's that make you? [CHOOSE YOUR FIGHTER... if Firestorm was chosen...]
Nightwing: I take after my mother.
Firestorm: Professor Stein wants to teach Oedipus here to respect elders. (Firestorm releases fire, cleverly shielded by Nightwing. Nightwing counter-attacks Firestorm.) Bet you were one of those students thought he was smarter than the teacher.
Nightwing: (Spinning his staff) Thought I was smarter, hot head? No. I know I am. (Both of them fight. Firestorm wins.)
Firestorm: Class dismissed. (Firestorm hurries towards the Red Sun prison.)

[Scene cuts. It's shown that Cyborg was also released and he's operating on the unlock system, trying to hack it and release Superman from the prison.]

Cyborg: Wonder Woman's outside, keeping what's left of the guards busy.
Clark Kent: If it wasn't her, who let you out?
Supergirl: (arriving at the scene) I did.
Clark Kent: (surprised) Kara? (Kara walks towards him and is worried seeing him imprisoned. From behind, Blue Beetle and Firestorm peek through, in shock, to see what's happening.)
Blue Beetle: Another Krytonian!
Supergirl: (Happy) You recognize me, Kal?
Clark Kent: My parents stored your image on my ship. You're my protector.
Supergirl: Sorry I'm a few decades late. You and I left Krypton at the same time, but the explosion threw my ship off-course. Way off-course.
Clark Kent: You haven't aged a day.
Supergirl: Hyper-sleep. While you were growing up, I was on ice.
Clark Kent: (sentimental) I never thought I'd see family again. Someone with my eyes. My own blood. You knew my parents...
Supergirl: They loved you so much, Kal. (A sudden shake on the building.) Diana needs a hand. Cyborg, how long?
Cyborg: Give me five more minutes, then it's "lights out." (Building continues to shake violently.)
Supergirl: I don't wanna leave you.
Clark Kent: I'll be here. (and Supergirl leaves to help Wonder Woman.)
Blue Beetle: (seeing Supergirl leave) Ella esta sobre tu nivel...
Firestorm: She's not out of our league! What happened to your confidence?
Blue Beetle: Krytonians happened!
Firestorm: C'mon. Batman's counting on us. (In the prison-lock system, Cyborg continues to find the decryption for unlocking the Red Sun prison.)
Cyborg: Gotta hand it to Palmer, his people's cryptography is legit. Doesn't mean I won't break it.
Clark Kent: (warning Cyborg) Victor! Behind you! (Blue Beetle tries to push away Cyborg, but he dodges it. Cyborg shoots down Blue Beetle with his Sonic Cannon. Firestorm tries to attack Cyborg.)
Firestorm: What's your melting point, Cyborg? (He sends a beam of fire on him, only for Cyborg to create a computerized shield to defend himself. Cyborg resists him successfully and later, jolts forward, overpowering Firestorm as well. Systems indicate CELL POWER DOWN, which indicated that Superman has only minutes to free himself.)
Blue Beetle: (In panic) The red sun generator! (as it slowly shuts down, but not complete yet.)
Firestorm: We need to reactivate that console before Superman powers up... (both of them get up.)
Cyborg: Amateur hour's over, rookies. [CHOOSE YOUR FIGHTER... if Blue Beetle was chosen...]
Blue Beetle: I think I got this. (Firestorm leaves. Cyborg forms a sonic cannon.) Sweet arm cannon. I got one too. (Blue Beetle forms his cannon.)
Cyborg: Quit playing, kid. You even know how to use that? (Both of them fight. Blue Beetle wins.)
Blue Beetle: If you ever want tips, let me know. (Firestorm reboots the generators, which starts working again.)
Clark Kent: Brainiac's too much for Batman. I'm your only chance.
Firestorm: Here's the thing, Superman. Batman asked us for help. He didn't draft us, make us sign a loyalty oath, or threaten us with jail...
Clark Kent: He won't go far enough. That's why he'll fail. (Clark and Firestorm look behind Blue Beetle as Supergirl approaches with super-speed to tackle Firestorm. She then tackles him.)
Supergirl: Stay away from him! (Blue Beetle goes to help Firestorm, but Wonder Woman's lasso ties him and stops him. Wonder Woman pulls back Blue Beetle, while Supergirl tosses Firestorm a bit further away.)
Firestorm: Kryptonian, huh? The professor knows how to deal with you. (Professor Stein within Firestorm activates the formula of Kryptonite, which weakens Supergirl.)
Supergirl: (Unable to resist its effect) Uhh... Kryptonite... (She tries to overpower the formula.) You're--HNGH--just as bad--GAH!--as Wonder Woman and Black Adam said...
Firestorm: (Increasing Kryptonite's intensity) Surrender and this stops...
Supergirl: Kryptonians don't surrender. (She manages to overpower it, and knocks down Firestorm with her punches. Wonder Woman tosses back Blue Beetle.) [CHOOSE YOUR FIGHTER... if Blue Beetle was chosen...] We're freeing Kal-El... like it or not.
Blue Beetle: Let's switch partners... (Wonder Woman and Firestorm attack each other and leave the place.)
Supergirl: We need Kal's help, kid. You've no idea what Brainiac can do!
Blue Beetle: No. But I know what Superman can do... (Both of them fight. Blue Beetle wins.) Guess you belong here too.
Firestorm: What did I tell you? We got game! (to Blue Beetle) Professor and I trapped Wonder Woman under ten feet of steel. (Wonder Woman manages out of it and appears in front of them.)
Wonder Woman: You fought valiantly... (in the background, Supergirl helps out Cyborg. Black Adam and Nightwing arrive at the scene as well.) ...but this battle's over.
Firestorm: (Jason speaks to Professor Stein within him) You want me to do what? Professor, that's crazy! Maybe we can control it, but-- (he pauses, as if Jason agrees to what Professor wants him to do. Continues...) You're right. No other option. (to Blue Beetle) Get outta here, Jaime. (and Firestorm does what's the worst expected. He formulates the nuke, a nuclear bomb which can blow up Metropolis again if triggered.)
Blue Beetle: Jesucristo, Jason! You're gonna nuke us?!
Firestorm: It's the only way. Now, go! (Wonder Woman signals everyone to not move ahead. Firestorm warns everyone) Leave. All of you. Or you'll get a helluva' lot worse than a sunburn...
Wonder Woman: You'd blow up Metropolis rather than let Superman go? (The intensity of the nuke increases. It's just about to be triggered.)
Firestorm: I'd save the Earth... (Wonder Woman raises her sword, but is dropped. Batman's batarang hits her hand, signalling Batman has arrived.)
Batman: Firestorm, stand down! (Batman arrives at the scene gliding with his cape in style. Firestorm backs off the nuke. Batman approaches, seeing everyone freed. He is stopped by Supergirl, who Batman is yet unaware of.) Who are you?
Supergirl: Superman's overprotective cousin. (Nightwing smiles at the background.)
Nightwing: (in a mocking fashion) You keep so many secrets, but you can't stand it when one's kept from you. Can you? (Batman enters the decryption code in the unlock system.)
Wonder Woman: You can't beat Brainiac, Bruce.
Batman: (In agreement) You're right, Diana. I can't. (He completes his bio-metric in the unlock system, which shuts down the red sun generators.)

[To everyone's shock, Batman releases Superman (or Clark Kent) from the Red Sun prison. Superman is delighted and feels his powers after so long.]

Blue Beetle: What the...?! (Clark walks towards Batman and stands real close.)
Clark Kent: You're ready to stop Brainiac by any means necessary?
Batman: (correcting Clark) By the means at hand.
Clark Kent: (with a suspicious look) What's your game? You're always three moves ahead.
Batman: (ensuring Clark) Saving the world is enough for now.
Clark Kent: I'm never going back in that cell.
Batman: (after a pause) We'll cross that bridge later. Right now, the world needs us... (Clark looks at his cousin, who nods in agreement with Batman. Batman and Superman stare at each other, trying to guess what the other person is thinking.)

[Scene cuts. In Brainiac's ship, Brainiac looks at the worlds he had invaded upon. Grodd approaches Brainiac to have a talk...]

Gorilla Grodd: You summoned me, Brainiac?
Brainiac: There've been surprising developments. Kal-El is free. But more remarkably, he is not the last Kryptonian. There is another refugee.
Gorilla Grodd: Two kryptonians?
Brainiac: Continue as planned. Kal-El is not yet at full strength. But, remember--the Kryptonians belong to me.

[Scene cuts. Back in Earth, in Metropolis, all the superheroes gather at a round table discussion. The superheroes are: Firestorm, Cyborg, Batman, Blue Beetle, Wonder Woman, Nightwing, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Black Adam, The Flash and Green Lantern. Two more of them, not at scene, are Supergirl and Superman. Superman has gone to change his suit, while his cousin waits for him. Catwoman unrolls a map which has marks, representing all the cities that Brainiac is going to invade upon.]

Catwoman: Thanks to Flash's recon, we have locations for every ship in Brainiac's fleet. They're targeting major cities on every continent. Betas are being offloaded on the outskirts... (Catwoman continues to explain the plan to everyone, while Batman and Firestorm go to a corner.)
Batman: (to Firestorm) Give us some privacy. (Firestorm uses his powers, providing privacy. Now only Batman and Firestorm would know what they are gonna talk about.)
Firestorm: Listen, Batman. About the prison, we-- (interrupted by Batman)
Batman: That was reckless. Don't pull a stunt like that again. Make up for it by finishing another mission. Discreetly.

[Back to the round table discussion...]

Catwoman: We've to evacuate these cities before attacking the fleet, but we need communications restored first. So before we get started, Cyborg's going to fix Brother Eye. (Looking at him. Batman and Firestorm joins back.)
Cyborg: I am not Bat-tech support.
Superman: That's not the issue, Victor. (Superman along with Supergirl arrive at the scene. Superman wears a new suit, with upgraded gear on him.) Kara saw firsthand how Brainiac destroyed Krypton. She says we have less than 48 hours before he does the same to Earth.
Batman: Without tight coordination, we'll lose valuable time.
Superman: And that means we fix Brother Eye. (Cyborg reluctantly agrees.)
Batman: (to Cyborg) Catwoman and Harley will join you. You'll need their help getting into the Batcave.
Cyborg: (with overconfidence) Just gimme the co-ordinates. I'll open a portal and boom-tube in.
Batman: You can't. I reverse-engineered your armor's Mother Box technology.
Harley Quinn: (jokingly)Try teleportin' into the Batcave. 'stead of boom, you'll go splat! (Kara behind her giggles.)
Cyborg: So... how do we get in?
Catwoman: The old underground. There's a tunnel entrance under Arkham.
Cyborg: I'm taking you two to Arkham Asylum?
Harley Quinn: (Blows a bubblegum) Promise it won't be awkward or nothin'. (Kara smiles.)
Superman: I need a few hours in the solarium at the Fortress of Solitude. (to Batman) Assuming you haven't torn it down.
Batman: Not yet.
Superman: Damian. Adam. You're with me.
Wonder Woman: And the rest of us? We can't just sit here.
Batman: We plan our attack. Once Brother Eye's online, we mobilize. (Batman gets up and reminds everyone of something.) Remember. Out there, there's no Regime. Not anymore. So we do. Not. Kill. (After a brief pause...) Let's go. (Everybody gets up and leaves.)
Wonder Woman: (looking at Supergirl) You're with me. (She takes Supergirl along. Everyone leaves, while Batman and Superman stand opposite each other near the table. Superman looks at the table and questions Batman.)
Superman: Why'd you keep it?
Batman: Keep what? (Superman pulls the table cloth. Under it was the symbol of the Justice League. It had a crack in it, symbolizing that Justice League was no more.) (Looking at it and realising) Hm. Forgot that was there. (and Batman walks away.)

Chapter 7: Cyborg and CatwomanEdit

[A windy day. Cyborg gets the co-ordinates of Arkham Asylum and uses his boom-tube to teleport to the entrance, along with Harley Quinn and Catwoman. All three of them enter the Arkham Asylum.]

Catwoman: (leading the team) This way! (Suddenly, toxic gases called pheromones are released. Harley starts to suffocate.)
Cyborg: Pheromones? (Cyborg uses his sonic vacuum to clear all that gas.)
Catwoman: (Seeing Harley cough) Harley? You okay? (She continues coughing and almost faints. From behind, Poison Ivy gets hold of Harley.)
Poison Ivy: (Running her palm on Harley's chin) Sweet, sweet Harley. This time you'll be a good girl for Mama... (and Harley Quinn is controlled by Ivy. She is now Ivy's pawn.)
Harley Quinn: (In a villainous tone) Hey, kiddies! Let's play "Eeny Meeny Miney... MURDER!" [CHOOSE YOUR FIGHTER... if Catwoman was chosen...]
Catwoman: Harley needs a girl talk. (Cyborg leaves to fight Ivy.)
Harley Quinn: Hissss! Cat fight! (She points her gun on Catwoman.)
Catwoman: (Getting hold of her bull-whip) Sorry, Harley. I'll try not to leave a scar. (Both of them fight. Catwoman wins.) Ivy sure did a number on you... (Cyborg falls from air after being tossed by Ivy. Cyborg gets up.)
Cyborg: Your girlfriend's a real man-eater. (Poison Ivy lands down in her extended roots.)
Poison Ivy: Arkham gave us so many memories, Selina (a.k.a Catwoman) (after a pause) Bewitching guards, late night poker... mandatory shock therapy... (Catwoman gives her a stare) Oh, that's right. You were spared. Thanks to your billionaire boy-toy.
Catwoman: I didn't ask for special treatment.
Cyborg: To hell with his pity party.
Poison Ivy: You're just dying to hurt me, aren't you, Tin-Man? It won't bring back what you lost. Especially below the waist... (Cyborg gets provoked. He goes to hit her, but stopped by Catwoman. Harley slowly starts to go in shock.) Poor Harley smelled the wrong roses and now she's going into shock. Bye bye, Baby Doll. [CHOOSE YOUR FIGHTER... if Catwoman was chosen...]
Catwoman: (to Cyborg) Keep her alive. This is personal. (Cyborg leaves to look after Harley.) (to Poison Ivy) Harley was your friend, Pamela. She loved you!
Poison Ivy: I've no more friends, Selina. All I've is the Green. (Both of them fight. Catwoman wins.)
Catwoman: So much for the Gotham City Sirens. (She approaches Harley. She checks her pulse, and figures out she's still alive, but in a cardiac arrest. To Cyborg) You got a defibrillator in there?
Cyborg: Yeah, but--
Catwoman: Use it! (Cyborg transforms his arms into defibrillator and gives subsequent jolts on Harley to cure her cardiac arrest.) Harley?
Harley Quinn: (gaining consciousness) Again... Again...

[Scene cuts. Catwoman, Harley and Cyborg walk in the Gotham Underground Railway lines towards the Batcave. On their way...]

Harley Quinn: You think we'll find Dinah and Ollie once we get to Brainiac?
Cyborg: Seriously? They're already dead.
Harley Quinn: Why you gotta say that?!
Cyborg: Brainiac collects the best and discards the rest. Black Canary and Arrow? Definitely not the best. (Harley stops walking for a while, sees Cyborg and Catwoman move ahead.
Catwoman: (to Cyborg) I'd take them over you any day, Victor. (Harley runs and joins them.) Here we are. (They come in front of a wall, which is the entrance to the Underground subway leading to the Batcave. Harley and Catwoman search for the hidden button to press open the wall, with the help of Cyborg's flash light. They both figure it out and press the buttons together. The wall deforms itself, and opens like a gate.) (To Harley) Wait here, Harley. Make sure no one follows us. (Along with Cyborg, Catwoman heads further into the subway towards the Batcave, leaving Harley behind as a guard.)
Cyborg: (mockingly to Harley) After you, please.

[Having almost nearing the Batcave entrance, Cyborg and Catwoman are suspicious of the silence in that place.)

Catwoman: It's too quiet. (Cyborg uses his computerized radar to detect the existence of any other humans near them. He finds two of them.)
Cyborg: Bogeys. And they're not bats... (Two bullets are fired at them, but is successfully shielded by Cyborg. The gunshots were from Dead-shot's gun, who is accompanied by Bane. Yes, the two bogeys detected by Cyborg were Dead-shot and Bane. Bane and Dead-shot approach them.)
Bane: (to Catwoman) I told Grodd you were loyal to the Bat. He called me "paranoid." At least he listened when I said Batman would not relinquish his Cave so easily. Soon, not just this place, but all of Gotham will be mine. [CHOOSE YOUR FIGHTER... if Cyborg was chosen...]
[Dead-shot fires again at Catwoman, but is shielded. Both Catwoman and Dead-shot leave Cyborg and Bane to fight.]
Bane: (to Cyborg) Cyborg... my old Comrade.
Cyborg: I was never down with Superman recruiting criminals to the Regime. That was his call.
Bane: We're both considered criminals now. So ask yourself... what is the difference between us? (Both of them fight. Cyborg wins.)
Cyborg: The difference between us? I'm still standing. (Catwoman arrives at the scene.)
Catwoman: (To Cyborg) Ready to meet Brother Eye?
Cyborg: About damn time. (They enter the Batcave, and approach Brother Eye.) System's still running. Brother Eye needs a clean power source... something Brainiac can't touch.
Catwoman: The cave's got backup generators.
Cyborg: That should do it. (The screens undergo change, as Brainiac who is now in control of Brother Eye, appears on screen.)
Brainiac: (to Cyborg) Victor Stone. The pinnacle of human evolution...
Catwoman: Someone has a secret admirer. (referring "Someone" as Cyborg.)
Brainiac: But your humanity inhibits your true potential. You must purge it.
Cyborg: Interesting thought. Just one problem--I'm a team player. And humanity? That's my team.
Brainiac: But you're capable of so much more. (Brainiac sends purple rays through the screens at Cyborg, creating a prototype Cyborg named "Grid", an evil version of the true Cyborg.)
Grid: Grid online. (to Cyborg) I'm your vast memory and intellect, liberated from the weaknesses of flesh and emotion.
Cyborg: Apparently liberated from my good looks and charm, too. [CHOOSE YOUR FIGHTER... if Cyborg was chosen...] (to Catwoman) We need that backup power. Now. (to Grid) So, uh, 'Grid.' This mirror match is as weird for you as it is for me?
Grid: For years I dwelled as a subroutine within your system. An anomaly. I never fashioned an existence outside you. Now, I realize my perfection. And your obsolescence. (Cyborg and Grid fight. Cyborg wins.)
Cyborg: Not so perfect, after all. (Catwoman arrives at the scene.)
Catwoman: Backup power's on.
Cyborg: Let's get this party started. (Cyborg gets on work with the Brother Eye's control keypad, trying to create a firewall between Brother Eye and Brainiac's neural network.)
Brainiac: No human--not even you--can gain control of my neural network.
Cyborg: Not trying to. Just teaching Brother Eye to ignore you.
Brainiac: This minor success--vrt--will not--vrt--save you--vrt-- (The firewall is successfully created. Brother Eye ignores control by Brainiac's neural network and comes back online, working as normal as before.)
BROTHER EYE: The Brother Eye is online.
Catwoman: Welcome back.
BROTHER EYE: (recognizing Catwoman) Thank you, Ms. Kyle. (The alarms start ringing, initiating defense systems, indicating Cyborg's presence as an intruder, while he's not.) Warning! Victor Stone has infiltrated the BatCave! Deploying countermeasures! (Brother Eye was about to deploy missiles on Cyborg, but is stopped by Catwoman.)
Catwoman: Defense system override. Authorization LK-4D4!
BROTHER EYE: System administrator Selina Kyle. Retinal verification required. (Brother Eye takes Selina's bio-metrics before following the override command from Catwoman. The verification matches and defense system retreat back.) Identity confirmed. Standing down.
Catwoman: Brother Eye, bring geo-sync comms online. (It does so and restores communications with Batman and all the superheroes. Through Brother Eye, Catwoman to Batman) Bruce, the comms are yours.

[Scene cuts. Batman is flying in his Bat-plane, while he receives Catwoman's message.]

Batman: Copy. Brother Eye, broadcast on the old Justice League band.
BROTHER EYE: Broadcasting. (Brother Eye does so and connects all the members of Justice League in conference communication.)
Batman: (Communicates to everyone.) We're back online everyone. We have one hour to evacuate the civilians before we engage Brainiac and the fleet.

Chapter 8: Wonder WomanEdit

[Wonder Woman and Supergirl fly around Metropolis to begin the evacuation of civilians. They both reach on top of a building, right in front of the skull ship and have a talk...]

Supergirl: Where should we start? (Wonder Woman is lost in a thought.) (to Wonder Woman) Diana! We don't have much time...
Wonder Woman: (interrupting Supergirl) Batman's strategy is all wrong. Delaying our offensive is pointless. It's one less hour before Brainiac sends us all to Hades. Saving these people could doom millions more!
Supergirl: I can hear the people down there. All of them. They're afraid, like I was on Krypton, when I didn't have these powers. And I look at us and I just think... We can give them hope. (Down in the streets, Brainiac's robots take in civilians as hostages, even policemen. Wonder Woman and Supergirl pick one such robot in air.)
Wonder Woman: (to other robots) Up here. (All of them look at Wonder Woman and Supergirl with the robot. Wonder Woman smashes the Robot with her hands. The other robots attack them. Wonder Woman and Supergirl get on the ground and fight these robots, taking all of them down.)
Supergirl: Why are they so afraid of us? (A laser gunshot hits Supergirl. It was Cheetah who had shot her.)
Wonder Woman: Minerva...
Cheetah: Welcome back, Diana. (Cheetah also shoots at Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman falls way back, breaking the walls, into a salon. The bartender points a shotgun at Wonder Woman in self defense. From the entrance of the salon, Captain Cold breaks the door with his cold gun. Reverse-Flash attacks Wonder Woman at lightning speed, punching her at different angles. Captain Cold enters in.)
Captain Cold: Your heart's so cold, Wonder Woman. Let's put you on ice. (Reverse-Flash joins him. Captain Cold fires a beam of ice from his gun, only for Wonder Woman to perform a rope-a-dope and freezes Reverse-Flash.) Nice rope-a-dope. (Captain Cold approaches Wonder Woman.)
Wonder Woman: Give up your code of honor, Snart? Why lower yourself to work with Grodd?
Captain Cold: You're not so pure, Amazon. You--you executed "Golden Glider." She... was my sister.
Wonder Woman: A sister you led into a life of crime. She paid for your mistakes. (Both of them fight. Wonder Woman wins.) My condolences. (She looks at Reverse-Flash, as he vibrates at super-speed to release himself from the state of frost.) (looking at & going towards Reverse-Flash) Eobard Thawne, right? Barry said you're some kind of time traveler.
Reverse-Flash: Yeah. And let me tell you about the future. You think you're immortal. But in my time, Diana... you're quite dead. (Both of them fight. Wonder Woman wins.)
Wonder Woman: An oracle you are not. (Something happens around Diana. She then sees Superman, coming towards her.)
Superman: Diana, you're safe! Thank Rao.
Wonder Woman: (moving towards Superman) We've to find Kara, she's-- (Superman interrupts her.)
Superman: We will. (Superman gently holds Wonder Woman, in a romantic gesture.)
Wonder Woman: Clark, we don't have time for--
Superman: (Running his hand on her cheek) Please. I've missed you.
Wonder Woman: (in a soft voice) We can beat them, Kal. Brainiac, Batman, they both go down today.
Superman: And we'll rule, side by side, as equals.
Wonder Woman: And lovers. (And both are about to kiss each other, when Superman hurts Wonder Woman with his heat vision. Wonder Woman falls way back and is in shock of such a gesture. She is suspicious of his identity.)
Superman: (in grief) I turned to you when Lois died. You took advantage. (Wonder Woman gets up.) Manipulated my grief... (he forcefully holds her and knocks her to a wall.) Turned me into someone, I wasn't meant to be!
Wonder Woman: That's not true. My love made you stronger.
Superman: Is that what you tell yourself? (Wonder Woman stabs him with her sword, realising he was not Superman, but Scarecrow, in Superman's disguise.)
Wonder Woman: That's what Superman told me, Scarecrow. (She gets up from that hallucination from the fear gas released on her by Scarecrow.)
Scarecrow: (in his human form) Hehehaha. You're not afraid of Superman, you're afraid you corrupted him. Brave hero. Your worst fear is becoming the villain of the story.
Wonder Woman: (taking her sword out) To Hades with your mind games.
Scarecrow: Classic anger displacement. (Releasing more of that toxin and taking his true form) We should continue your therapy... (Both of them fight. Wonder Woman wins.)
Wonder Woman: This therapy session's over. (Taking back his human form, he tries to release that toxin on Wonder Woman but is stopped by her.)

[Scene cuts. In Metropolis, in front of statue of "Justice Society of America", Supergirl tries to recover herself. Cheetah arrives behind her.]

Cheetah: (Seeing Supergirl lying weak) Girl of Steel. You are a rare, rare find. No wonder Brainiac wants you... Dead or alive. (Cheetah places her claws on Supergirl's face and imprints a scratch on her.) Kryptonians are vulnerable to magic... and these claws cut... like magic... (She grabs Supergirl forcefully at her hip. Blood oozes out from Kara as she screams in pain. Wonder Woman flies to Supergirl and attacks Cheetah from behind.)
Wonder Woman: Hang in there, Kara. The Gods will protect us. (She goes towards Cheetah.)
Cheetah: Grrrr...
Wonder Woman: Minerva! I'm surprised someone so feral still follows Grodd's orders.
Cheetah: No, Princess. I only joined Grodd to draw out my own quarry... You.
Wonder Woman: A fool's errand. Like when you sought a God's power, but found the Cheetah's curse.
Cheetah: More like the Cheetah's gift. I'm stronger, faster--and thirsty. So thirsty... for Amazon blood! (Cheetah and Wonder Woman fight. Wonder Woman wins.)
Wonder Woman: You want blood?! Your curse can never be undone. This is the peace you deserve. (Wonder Woman picks Cheetah in air and is about to kill her. Supergirl slowly regains consciousness, when Harley Quinn arrives at the scene.)
Harley Quinn: (to Supergirl) Y'all right, Blondie? (She picks her up.) Sit tight... (Wonder Woman gets her sword to Cheetah's neck, but is shot at hand by Harley, dropping the sword.) She's had enough, Wonder Bread.
Wonder Woman: This isn't your business, Clown.
Harley Quinn: (pointing both her guns at Wonder Woman) You heard Bats. No killing.
Wonder Woman: You lecture me? How much blood is on your ledger, Quinn?
Harley Quinn: Oh, buckets full, honey. I was tryin' too hard to impress the wrong guy. Kinda like you with Superman. (Wonder Woman gets really angry hearing those words. She drops Cheetah, lifts her sword and runs towards Harley. Harley begins the gunfire, with each bullet being blocked by Wonder Woman and is stabbed by Wonder Woman with her sword.)
Supergirl: (seeing Harley stabbed) No! (Wonder Woman drops Harley, while Supergirl gives Wonder Woman a flying kick, knocking her far, far away. She then goes towards Harley, who's losing a lot of blood.) You're losing too much blood. This is gonna hurt. A lot.
Harley Quinn: (in pain) Heh... Even better... (Supergirl user her heat vision to heal the wound temporarily.)

Chapter 9: SupergirlEdit

[In continuation to Wonder Woman's story... Wonder Woman comes back to the scene.]

Wonder Woman: What do you think you're doing, Kara?
Supergirl: Stopping you before you make a mistake.
Wonder Woman: That lunatic deserves to die.
Supergirl: Maybe. But she's defenseless. She's had no trial... You told me Amazons fought with honor. (Both of them fight. Supergirl wins.) I trusted you, Diana. (goes to Harley Quinn and picks her up.) You're gonna be okay. (She lifts her and flies to meet Superman.) (to Harley) I'll get you to a doctor. Kal can protect you.
Harley Quinn: Superman?! (she chuckles) Oh, Blondie. Yer funny!

[Scene cuts. In the Solarium in the Fortress of Solitude, Superman, Black Adam and Damian Wayne(a.k.a Nightwing) have a conversation.]

Superman: (to Black Adam and Nightwing) Did you find anything?
Nightwing: I analysed the Kryptonian data, like you asked. You didn't miss anything. They just didn't have an answer for Brainiac.
Superman: There has to be something. A blind spot, a weakness. Brute force won't be enough.
Black Adam: If your powers are restored, I should leave for Kahndaq, make sure its defenses are prepared.
Superman: Brainiac hasn't attacked it yet?
Black Adam: The Rock of Eternity's magic hides Kahndaq from prying eyes--even Brainiac's. But I don't expect him to be fooled forever. (Supergirl arrives at the Fortress of Solitude.)
Supergirl: Kal, we need to talk.
Superman: (to Adam and Damian) Give me a minute, both of you. (Damian and Adam leave.) Damian told me what happened, is Diana all right?
Supergirl: She's fine. But she was gonna kill Harley. I've never seen her so cold-blooded...
Superman: Yes, it's unfortunate...
Supergirl: (interrupting him) I know. What was she thinking?
Superman: (completing his sentence) It's unfortunate Diana chose now to deal with Harley. More unfortunate that you got in the way.
Supergirl: (surprised after hearing these words from Kal) What?
Superman: The Joker sickened Harley's mind beyond healing. When she relapses, innocent people will die.
Supergirl: (not yet out of shock hearing from Kal) Innocent people are dying now. She was helping us!
Superman: Don't be naive, Kara. Harley's a criminal. My only mistake was not dealing with her sooner. (Superman turns his back at Kara.)
Supergirl: Diana said the Joker was executed. Were you the one who...?
Superman: (justifying his mistake) I took one life to save millions.
Supergirl: (getting closer to Kal) But it wasn't just one, Kal, was it? How many? (Superman turns his back again, but Kara turns him to face her.) How many?! (in grief touching the symbol of House of El) Everywhere I go, people are afraid of this... now I know why. (She retreats her hand, feeling ashamed of Superman)
Superman: (Tries to explain his point to Kara) It's not how I wanted things. But humans... they've been slaughtering each other for millennia. I stopped that violence. Humans need strong leadership. We have to save them from themselves.
Supergirl: (in utter shock) Whose son are you? Jor-El's? or General Zod's? (She flies away from Superman, dejected of his attitude)
Superman: (trying to stop her) Kara! (Announces in the fortress) Don't let Kara leave the fortress! (Nightwing comes in her way, stopping her from leaving.)
Nightwing: Hold on, Kara.
Supergirl: I'm realizing maybe your father locked you up for good reason...
Nightwing: Superman's been more of a father, than Batman could ever be. (Both of them fight. Supergirl wins.)
Supergirl: Kal should be setting a better example. (She continues to fly, trying to leave the fortress...)
Black Adam: Shazam! (This time, Black Adam tries stopping Supergirl. Supergirl is tossed on the ground by his magic. She gets up and faces him.) You'll submit, Kara Zor-El. (More of his magic thunder bolt jolts her.)
Supergirl: (to Adam) Ever since you found me, everything you told me... Half-truths. Lies. To cover up your own evil...
Black Adam: You see the world as a child does. "Good" and "evil" are not constants. Their meaning's defined by those with power. (Both of them fight. Supergirl wins.)
Supergirl: Lucky for you. I find power in restraint. (Superman arrives at the scene.)
Superman: Kara, please. (hovers towards Kara) Listen to me. With our powers, we can't hold back, or the ones we love... pay the price...
Supergirl: (in regret) I'm sorry I wasn't here. That I couldn't help you. But Metropolis wasn't your fault.
Superman: I promised myself. Never again.
Supergirl: This isn't who we are. The House of El isn't ruled by fear.
Superman: (Tired of making Kara understand) Hope isn't enough to save the world. Without me, they'd be dead! (Superman and Supergirl fight. Supergirl wins.)
Supergirl: I can help you... (Black Adam and Nightwing also arrive in the scene.)
Superman: Think about all you've lost, Kara. What if you could've saved Krypton?
Supergirl: I think about it everyday.
Superman: Then stand with me. (A huge noise of the Brainiac's betas are being heard.)
Supergirl: (reacting to the sound) It's Brainiac... He's extracting the cities early!
Black Adam: Then we fight back. I must go to protect Kahndaq.
Superman: (to Black Adam) Go. (to everyone) We're heading to Metropolis.
Nightwing: What about her?
Superman: All that matters now is stopping Brainiac. (to Kara) But when this is over, you need to choose. You're either with me... or against me.

[Scene cuts. Brainiac's skull ship shadows Metropolis. He slowly starts extracting it, by absorbing buildings. Seeing all the cars torn apart, street lights fallen, roads with cracks, civilians hurt and dead, Dr. Kent with his helm in his hand, is just helpless but to witness all of these. He sees the skull ship performing the extraction.]

Civilian: (wounded; to Dr.Kent) Help... help me! (He extends his hand to help...)
Nabu, Spirit of the Helm: No! (warning Dr. Kent of changing yet another fate.)
Civilian: Please... (and she breathes her last.)
Dr.Kent: (Helpless) Why can't I stop this? (to the Helm) Why won't you let me fight back? How can there be order if Brainiac wins?!
Nabu, Spirit of the Helm: Humanity breeds Chaos. Brainiac is Order.

[Scene cuts. Batman and Catwoman fly in the Batplane, heading towards Brainiac's skull ship.]

Catwoman: (to Batman) Superman and Supergirl are almost here. The others are tackling the feet. Shouldn't we be in Gotham?
Batman: Brainiac controls the entire fleet from that Skull Ship. Take him down, take them all down.
Catwoman: (looking at the monitor for any danger) Contacts! Dead ahead! (The skull ship sends automated fighter jets and are heading towards the Bat-plane, but are cleared by Superman and Supergirl using heat vision. Catwoman detects something from the Bat-plane's monitor.) They gave us an opening. (The Bat-plane is now directed towards that opening.)
Batman: Locking on that Skull Ship. (He locks the target and sends three rockets, hitting the Skull Ship.) (From inside the Skull Ship...)
Brainiac: (looking at all damage being taken by his ship) Shields. (Brainiac enables strong shields around his ship and sends strong forces around a bigger radius of impact at objects. One such object was the Bat-plane, which degravitates and falls.)
Catwoman: Five seconds to impact...
Batman: Prepare to eject... (bat-plane keeps dropping faster.)
Catwoman: Three seconds! (just then, Superman comes to its rescue, holding and straightening the Bat-plane.)
Superman: You're welcome! (to Batman) What just happened?
Batman: Brainiac's force shield is creating a concussive feedback loop.
Superman: So the harder we hit it, the harder it hits back... (He then realizes Kara heading to hit the Skull Ship. She is unaware of that force shield's effect.) Kara! (Kara hits it and has a concussion, binding her to the force shield. Superman goes to rescue her, but is also victimized by that effect. The effect then creates a break, jolting and tossing both Superman and Supergirl far away. They both are weak and incapacitated.) (Seeing this from the Skull Ship...)
Brainiac: The Kryptonians are incapacitated. (command to the betas and his own ship.) Complete the extraction. (Metropolis faces this devastation a second time, as we see the Daily Planet building gets extracted, followed by other towers and apartments. Brainiac feels delighted.) (Miles away in another land, Superman and Supergirl lie unconscious. Superman regains consciousness. He figures out Kara to be alive through X-Ry vision. Superman heads towards the Skull Ship and sees his annihilated city for the second time, a depressing sight.)
Superman: (Emotionally hurt and filled with rage) Noooo! (He hits the Skull Ship subsequently, many times.) (From the Bat-plane...)
Batman: Superman! The force shield concentrates its energy at your point of attack. Move faster than it can, and you might break through!
Superman: Got it. (Superman attacks at that point at super-speed. He increases his speed every time he attacks the ship at different places, almost shaking the ship and continues giving harder blows.) (Inside the Skull Ship, Brainiac sees it all.)
Brainiac: Creative, but insufficient. (Command to his ship) Decrease shield refresh interval to ten picoseconds.

[At the next attack of Superman, he gets a concussion effect as experienced before and is knocked down, falling in air to the ground. The Skull Ship faces Superman, who gets up from that knock. The strong tendrils of the Skull Ship weakens Superman and is now trying to absorb him into the Ship. It creates a huge explosion, lightly tossing the Bat-plane and Supergirl who was heading towards Kal-El]

Supergirl: (Seeing Kal nowhere in sight; worried) Kal... (Supergirl hurries down to the place if Kal exists in that thick cloud of smoke.)

[Scene cuts. Supergirl sits worried and dejected that she couldn't protect Kal. The Bat-plane also lands at that site of extraction, from Batman and Catwoman approach Supergirl to console her. The Flash also arrives at the scene.]

Supergirl: I couldn't find his body. Can't hear his heartbeat. (Sad and tensed) I was supposed to protect him. From this. From you. (referring to Batman) And now he's gone. I'm sure that's the best news you've heard all day.
Batman: (emotional) I'll miss him, too.
Supergirl: (surprised) You mean that?
Batman: He was a good friend, once. I trusted him with my life. But the Joker got to him... and I wasn't there to stop it. I lost my friend Clark. And I've missed him ever since. (Cyborg, along with Green Lantern and Aquaman, teleport and arrive to the site of extraction and join Batman.) (to Aquaman) Atlantis?
Aquaman: Gone. I didn't listen. Now, we all die together.
Batman: No one's giving up yet. (to everyone) Anyone here from Beetle or Firestorm? (Wonder Woman and Black Adam arrives at the scene, accusing Batman)
Wonder Woman: This is your fault, Bruce! (pointing at him.) Kal and I would've beaten Brainiac! You should've followed our lead!
Supergirl: (angered; pushing Wonder Woman back with her hand) Stop it, Diana! Millions of people are trapped on that ship. We have to save them!
Wonder Woman: Not with him. (Observing this quarrel, Brainiac arrives in the form of a hologram and talks to them.)
Brainiac: Such discord. No wonder humans have yet to expand their civilization beyond the confines of this tiny planet.
Green Lantern: Did you call in just to gloat?
Brainiac: My betas are taking position all across your planet. In one hour, they'll explode in unison, burning the Earth's atmosphere. Rendering this world a barren moon. Unless... you surrender Kara Zor-El. She is Krypton's sole survivor--and my last opportunity to study the effect of yellow sun on Kryptonian cells. Surrender her, and I will spare this world.
Batman: Even if I thought you'd honor that deal, we wouldn't take it. (shielding Supergirl)
Brainiac: You've one hour to reconsider. (and Brainiac leaves.)
Supergirl: (to Batman) Thanks for giving the new girl a chance, but... Maybe I should go.
Batman: (with confidence) No. We'll find a way to take down Brainiac's shields. We have to.
Cyborg: We could try shorting them out. But we'd need to generate an insane amount of power...
Black Adam: Perhaps science is not the answer.
Batman: (approaching Black Adam) So he might be vulnerable to a magic-based attack.
Black Adam: (explaining his idea) I can drive the immense magical power from the Rock of Eternity through the gateway in Kahndaq. But I need an artifact, a medium to channel it. Something that can withstand the power...
Aquaman: How about the Trident of Atlantis? (thumping it with a majestic sound.)
Black Adam: Yes... that could work.
Catwoman: We get the shields down, then what? Cyborg said Brainiac controls the ship with his thoughts.
Cyborg: But I did cut him off from Brother Eye. It's possible I could make a signal disruptor that blocks his neural network. If you get Brainiac's shields down, we can disarm those Beta bombs.
Batman: Then that's our plan. Aquaman, Adam. Get to Kahndaq.

Chapter 10: Aquaman and Black AdamEdit

[In the northern part of Africa, amidst pyramids is the hidden magical land of Kahndaq. Black Adam and Aquaman reach Kahndaq to execute their first part of the major plan. Both of them walk towards the Rock of Eternity, the rock bestowing all magical powers and the reason behind Kahndaq not being exposed to Brainiac.]

Black Adam: The Rock of Eternity is hidden in a pocket dimension. I've refrained from the opening the gateway to it since Brainiac's invasion.
Aquaman: Because it would draw his eye?
Black Adam: Precisely. Once the door is open, it's only a matter of time before Brainiac attacks.
Aquaman: A fight I'll look forward to.
Black Adam: (enunciating the magic phrase) Ancient ones, unveil the golden path to me. (Adam gains electric thunders, i.e, increases his power, as he continues) In your names... Shu, Heru, Amon, Zehuti, Aton, Mehen... (A beam of thunder from the Gods fall upon Black Adam as he energizes and opens the door to Rock of Eternity.) (In Brainiac's Skull Ship, a red dot blinks in Africa as Kahndaq's anonymity is unveiled to Brainiac.)
Brainiac: Black Adam has revealed Kahndaq's power--and its location. (to Grodd) The Society will obtain a sample of the Rock of Eternity for me. I wish to study Earth's so-called magic.
Gorilla Grodd: The Society is disbanded. They thought Earth would be theirs to conquer, not yours to destroy.
Brainiac: And you, Grodd?
Gorilla Grodd: Earth can go to hell. I serve Brainiac.
Brainiac: As you should. I'll give you new soldiers. Bring me that sample before the Earth is destroyed, and your loyalty will be rewarded. (Grodd bows in front of him, and leaves with his soldiers.) (In Kahndaq, Black Adam opens the gateway and is about to go inside with Aquaman)
Black Adam: Let's work quickly. (From behind them, Green Arrow, Black Canary and a few Gorilla soldiers stop them. Arrow and Canary are in influence by Grodd, thus being controlled by his powers.)
Arrow and Canary: (together) Don't bother. There's no time left. (they move towards Black Adam and Aquaman to fight. Black Adam temporarily closes the gateway.)
Black Canary: An Extractor ship is on its way. Kahndaq will be Brainiac's. [CHOOSE A FIGHTER... if Aquaman was chosen...] (Adam leaves.)
Aquaman: Using pawns, Grodd? (Black Adam tackles Arrow and Grodd's soldiers, leaving Canary and Aquaman to fight.)
Black Canary: Pawns can achieve great victories. If you're willing to sacrifice them. (Both of them fight. Aquaman wins.)
Aquaman: This King isn't easily captured. (Aquaman runs to face Green Arrow. As Canary said, an Extractor ship made it to Kahndaq and had begun its extraction, firing Brainiac's Robots too.)
Green Arrow: Here comes the cavalry. Fitting that you two die together. The last of mankind's monarchs.
Aquaman: What kind of ruler sacrifices his own people for Brainiac?
Green Arrow: My loyalty isn't to Brainiac or Gorilla City. It's to myself. I'll wait until that alien exposes his weakness and kill him. With his ship, I will be unstoppable... [CHOOSE A FIGHTER... if Black Adam was chosen...]
Black Adam: I've had my fill of Grodd's charade. (Aquaman leaves Adam and Arrow alone to fight.) Your hubris will be your undoing.
Green Arrow: It isn't hubris... when one is truly exceptional. (Both of them fight. Black Adam wins.)
Black Adam: Exceptional is not the word I'd use. (Aquaman and Adam go towards the Rock of Eternity and Adam through his magic, opens the gateway again. Aquaman suddenly turns back to see Blue Beetle arrive at the scene.)
Aquaman: Blue Beetle! We thought you were dead.
Blue Beetle: The Scarab's hard to kill. Batman told me you guys needed a hand. Consider me your sidekick. (Aquaman and Adam accept.)
Black Adam: (to Blue Beetle) Come along. (The three of them enter the gateway, leading them to the eternal Rock, in the shape of a monarch's throne. The royal room was pretty old, with statues dusted and rusted.)
Aquaman: (to Adam) How does this work, exactly?
Black Adam: (to Aquaman) We imbue your trident with the spark of the Rock's power. When its full might is released, it will seek out your weapon. Your thoughts will guide the wizard's power to its final target. (Black Adam sits on it to harness its power.)
Aquaman: I am ready. (Aquaman hands over his trident to Black Adam, so that Adam could imbue the Rock's power. Adam is about to do so, but to his surprise, Blue Beetle shoots at him with his cannon. Aquaman and Adam then realize Blue Beetle was not sent by Batman, but by Grodd under his mind control, similar to Arrow and Canary.) (to Blue Beetle) Beetle, what are you doing?!
Gorilla Grodd: My bidding! (from behind, Grodd arrives.)
Black Adam: A sleeper agent, to lead you here.
Gorilla Grodd: Despite the power of the Scarab, the boy was easily manipulated. (to Blue Beetle) Now, Jaime--kill them. [CHOOSE A FIGHTER... if Aquaman was chosen...]
Blue Beetle: This armor is wasted on a child. When we're finished, I'll tear the Scarab from his body... And make its powers my own! (Blue Beetle and Aquaman fight. BAquaman wins.)
Aquaman: Don't get ahead of yourself. (Black Adam tackles Gorilla Grodd with their magic and telepathic powers respectively, while Aquaman joins Adam. Both assault each other. Grodd comes closer to them...)
Gorilla Grodd: Look at us. Three kings...
Aquaman: A king, Grodd? You're a brute.
Black Adam: (to Grodd) A true leader serves his people. You only serve yourself.
Gorilla Grodd: Be that as it may. I will be the only one who leaves this cave. [CHOOSE A FIGHTER... if Black Adam was chosen...] (Using his magic thunder from the Gods, Adam assaults at Grodd but his telekinetic powers resist it and releases that thunder attack on Aquaman, tossing him far behind. to Adam...) You'd have been a valuable contributor to my Society.
Black Adam: My knee bends to no one! (Both of them fight. Black Adam wins.) Now, Grodd. Your punishment. (Aquaman arrives at the scene. He turns the defeated Grodd lying face up.)
Gorilla Grodd: (looking at Aquaman and Adam) Stupid... humans... (Aquaman thrusts his trident sideways into Gorilla Grodd's body.)
Aquaman: (to Grodd) The people of Atlantis demand justice.
Gorilla Grodd: Against Brainiac? Hehe. I've seen his mind, felt his power... He can't be stopped...
Aquaman: But you can. (Aquaman lifts his Trident of Atlantis and thrusts with full might into Gorilla Grodd's chest, killing Grodd.)

[Scene cuts. Outside in Kahndaq, lying fainted was Black Canary and Green Arrow. As Grodd is dead, his mind control over Canary and Arrow is removed and they regain senses.)

Black Canary: (to Arrow) How's your head?
Green Arrow: Empty.
Black Canary: So not much has changed. (Aquaman arrives from the gateway.)
Aquaman: Canary! Arrow! out of the way! (Aquaman takes position, a little far, in front of the Rock of Eternity. He thumps the imbued Trident.) (At the cave, Black Adam harnesses the Rock's power to its full might.)
Black Adam: SHAZAM! (He releases the power through the gateway seeking Aquaman's imbued Trident. Aquaman guides that Rock's power through the skies towards Brainiac's Skull ship.)

[Scene cuts. At the site of extraction, everyone eagerly waits the magic-based attack from Kahndaq. Batman also waits for Cyborg to bring the signal disruptor.]

Batman: (through Brother Eye comms.) Cyborg, where's that signal disruptor?
Cyborg: Comin' at you. (Cyborg teleports himself using boom-tubes and arrives with the signal disruptor. He hands it over to Batman.) (instructing Batman about the disruptor) All you've to do is hit the trigger. But it only jams a local area. You need to get within arm's reach of Brainiac.
Supergirl: (stretching her arms) Good. (From the skies, they hear thunderous sounds as the Rock's power reaches Metropolis and is deployed at Brainiac's Skull ship, bringing its shields down. Inside the Skull ship, things violently shake as the magical blow is felt heavy.)
Cyborg: (using his intellect) They did it! Shields are down.
Batman: (to Supergirl) Supergirl, on me. (to Cyborg) Victor, help the others fight those Betas.

[He starts his Bat-plane, heads towards the unprotected Skull ship along with Supergirl. He enters the Skull ship, but is shot by one of Brainiac's fighter jets. He crash lands his Bat-plane inside the Skull ship. A lot of Brainiac's robots approach Batman, only to be easily destroyed by Supergirl's heat vision. Supergirl joins him. He is being led towards Brainiac using the signal disruptor.]

Batman: (to Supergirl) The signal gets stronger this way. (Supergirl stops. to Supergirl...) What is it?
Supergirl: (pointing at the worlds) Voices... Billions of them! (She stops because of those frantic cries of help she hears through super-hearing. The chamber of the captured worlds open.) (Supergirl super-hears those cries from different worlds. to Batman...) So many languages... The Kryptonians. (She heads towards the captured planet Krypton and sees her hometown.) Kandor... Argo City! Home... we have to help them.
Batman: (touching it) I'm not sure we can.
Supergirl: There has to be a way... (Behind Supergirl and Batman, many of Brainiac's tendrils get hold of both of them, as it entangles them all around. Brainiac's Robots approach the captured Batman. One of his tendrils scan Supergirl, verifying her identity. Brainiac arrives.)
Brainiac: Kara Zor-El. Until recently, I had thought my collection of Krypton to be complete. Your capture will make it so. (Those tendrils pull her into a semi-permeable membrane of the ship and she disappears.) (to Batman) You've failed in every effort to oppose me. You are not exceptional. Merely an ordinary specimen of primitive species. (to his Robots) Dispose of him.

[Batman tries to free himself, but he can't. His robots point an arrow-like weapon towards Batman from their palm. The Robot releases that weapon... things go in slow motion as it approaches Batman. From behind, Superman, who was thought to be captured by Brainiac, destroys all the Robots and saves Batman from that weapon assault, making a heroic comeback entry. The tendrils tied to Batman lift him up, but Superman breaks those tendrils, releasing Batman. He falls but is saved by Superman. Both of them land on the surface of the ship.)

Batman: And I thought I could make an entrance.
Superman: Where's Kara?
Batman: Captured. Somewhere onboard. (After a pause; to Superman) We'll find her. But we only have 20 minutes before Brainiac's Betas scorch the Earth.
Superman: Why aren't the others here?
Batman: They're attacking the Betas. Just in case we don't pull through.
Superman: We will.

Chapter 11: Batman and SupermanEdit

[In continuation to the previous story, Superman and Batman go through different paths to reach out Brainiac's command center. On their way, they're being stopped by Firestorm. He is a pawn of Brainiac, controlled by Brainiac's thoughts.]

Batman: (surprised by his presence) Firestorm! What happened to you?
Firestorm: (in a different voice) Brainiac unified our dueling minds. No longer divided, we think as one...
Superman: (to Batman) He's your walking bomb. How do we get past him? (Firestorm attacks on Batman and Superman, who dodge it. Superman goes to tackle Firestorm at super-speed but is caught by him. Swamp Thing, controlled by Brainiac, also arrives beating up Batman. Swampy and Firestorm toss Batman and Superman opposite each other, who collide and fall on the ground.) (surprised by Swampy's presence) Swamp Thing, too?!
Firestorm: Brainiac has unlocked the Green's power. He has mastered the Firestorm Matrix. All knowledge will be subsumed under his collection. [CHOOSE A FIGHTER... if Superman was chosen...]
Superman: I've heard enough about Brainiac and his collection. (Batman leaves.) You talked a big game back at my cell. Let's see how you stack up.
Firestorm: Your immense power is finite. The Firestorm Matrix has no limits. (Both of them fight. Superman wins.)
Superman: We just found your limit. (Meanwhile, Batman and Swamp Thing tackle each other, with Batman knocking him down. Superman arrives at the scene. Swamp Thing gets up with more strength, accompanied by few of Brainiac's robots.) (to Batman) You have a plan?
Batman: It's a work in progress. I might be able to restore them... (Superman hovers high and tackles the robots with his heat vision. The robots create a collaborative shield in self defense.)
Superman: (seeing robots' shield) That's new. (Batman surpasses them and goes to engage Swamp Thing in a fight. Superman arrives at the scene.)
Batman: Brainiac's adapting. [CHOOSE A FIGHTER... if Batman was chosen...]
Swamp Thing: Adaptation is nature's way...
Batman: (to Superman) I can help him. Keep those Betas busy... (Superman leaves.) (to Swamp Thing) Swamp Thing, hear me, your power's being used against you! Against the Green!
Swamp Thing: Brainiac is now the Green's protector. It will live forever... preserved in his collection. (Both of them fight. Batman wins.)
Batman: Now let's get you free. (Superman brings the defeated Firestorm's body and places it alongside the defeated Swamp Thing. Batman uses the signal disruptor on both of these bodies.) (to Superman about the signal disruptor) It should disrupt their link with Brainiac.
Superman: (using his X-ray vision on Firestorm) Firestorm's brain patterns are changing. But I can't read what's happening to Swamp Thing...
Batman: (To Firestorm, whose link is now disrupted from Brainiac) Jason? Professor Stein?
Firestorm: (back to original existence) Yeah. Yeah, we're both here. (slowly getting up) What happened?
Batman: Brainiac added a third mind to your head.
Firestorm: Like we needed that. (Swamp Thing also recovers and gets up.)
Swamp Thing: (back to original existence) What is this place?!
Batman: Brainiac's ship. Firestorm will get you back on terra firma. (instructing Firestorm) Report to Hal. He'll need help fighting Brainiac's suicide Betas. (Batman and Superman leave towards finding Brainiac.)
Firestorm: Sounds like a job for Firestorm. Good luck!

[Both reach Brainiac's command center but can't find him]

Batman: No Brainiac. Where is he?
Superman: I don't know. (He uses his super-vision to find behind those penetrable layers, but is unsuccessful.) The ship's walls are lined with lead (a demerit of Superman's super-vision). (Suddenly, a bright light shines in front of them. A hollow entrance appears, from which Doctor Fate come out.)
Doctor Fate: (looking at them) Bruce Wayne of Earth. Kal-El of Krypton. Your battles echo across the Universe. Your war has had consequences neither of you could foresee. The chaos you spread is a cancer upon the cosmos. Only Brainiac can establish order... [CHOOSE A FIGHTER... if Batman was chosen...]
Batman: So much for the magical advantage. (to Superman) I'll take care of this.
Superman: I'll keep searching for Brainiac. (Superman leaves.)
Doctor Fate: Brainiac will achieve what you could not. He will quell Gotham's chaos... But for him to succeed, you must die. (Batman and Doctor Fate fight. Batman wins.)
Batman: I don't answer to your Lords of Order. (Doctor Fate's Helm falls down. He is now Dr. Kent. Batman picks the Helm and hands it over to Superman. With his superhuman strength, Superman crushes the Helm, liberating the spirit and the powers bestowed in that Helm.)
Dr. Kent: (grateful to Superman) The Lords of Order... Their voices are gone.
Batman: It's over, Kent.
Dr. Kent: I'm sorry for attacking. The Helm commanded me.
Superman: They can't command you anymore.
Dr. Kent: Both of you have defied fate. Courted Chaos. (Superman picks up Kent to stand) But now... To see you working together again... you must keep order, or the Lords will impose it. If not through Brainiac, then-- (A tendril is thrusted into Kent's body by Brainiac, torturing him. He lifts Kent in air and captures Kent into his ship. From behind...)
Brainiac: Even a magical being like Doctor Fate recognizes my superiority. In time, the entire Universe will adhere to my design.
Batman: Unless we stop you.
Brainiac: (slowly descends to the ship's surface) I offer nothing less than deliverance. Your environment is poisoned, your civilization has exhausted its resources. The Earth's decline cannot be reversed.
Batman: We'll find a way.
Superman: We always do. (Both head for a combat with Brainiac. Brainiac knocks down Superman, then Batman. His tendrils once again entangles Batman, while Superman tries resisting it and is knocked far away. Brainiac strangles Batman with his tendrils and at its maximum, he tosses Batman down, falling far away. Superman tackles Brainiac with super-speed, only to be knocked by him again. Superman then gives Brainiac a fistful blow, knocking Brainiac down.)
Brainiac: Earth's time is up.
Superman: Where's Kara?
Brainiac: Being vivisected. She has already taught me much about the nature of your powers.
Superman: Allow me to give you a proper demonstration...
Brainiac: (Ready for battle) I match your strength. You cannot match my intellect. You are only a Kryptonian... of which I have killed Billions! [SEMI-FINAL SHOWDOWN 1: Superman vs Brainiac. Superman emerges victorious!]
Superman: That was for Krypton. (Batman arrives at the scene, seeing the defeated Brainiac lying down.) (to Batman) The attacks on the fleet are weakening him. I could feel him losing steam as we fought.
Batman: Good. Should make it easier to cut him off from the Betas... (Batman uses the signal disruptor on Brainiac, weakening his powers to link with his ship.)

[Scene cuts. Supergirl, who was captured by Brainiac in his ship unconscious, regains senses. She tries to free herself from the cuffs she's been tied to and a Robot approaches her to torture her, but suddenly breaks down and falls. All the cuffs get automatically untied, releasing Supergirl. Brainiac's fighter jets moving in air lose signal from Brainiac's thoughts and also fall apart. The Skull ship also starts to take a terrifying diset.]

Batman: (Through Brother Eye comms.; to everyone) This is Batman. Brainiac is down...
Cyborg: (in reply) The disruptor worked! All the Betas are shutting down! (Superman approaches near Batman.)
Superman: We did it. Now we find Kara-- (the ship shakes) What's happening?!
Batman: Brainiac's mind is the ship's CPU. Apparently he doesn't have a backup system... (The Skull ship loses control and descends to Earth at an increasing speed. Batman and Superman lose stability to stand.)
Superman: If we crash, all the cities preserved onboard--
Batman: Destroyed. (Superman then decides to sit on Brainiac's command center.) Clark, wait!
Superman: You said yourself, this ship is controlled by pure thought.
Batman: This could kill you!
Superman: Sounds like a job for me... (He injects the tendrils into his brain and tries to stabilize the Ship with his thoughts. Like a burning meteor, the ship is just few seconds before crashing into Earth. Somehow successfully, Superman gets control of the ship and saves it before crashing. Batman thinks of an alternative to protect Superman from hurting himself.)
Batman: (suggesting a solution) Create a bypass loop. Put the ship on autopilot!
Superman: (in stress) Hrnn! Trying! (Brainiac regains back consciousness.)
Brainiac: (in anger) My ship... You will not destroy my collection. (and he knocks Batman down. Both of them tackle each other.) (to Superman) Relinquish my ship. (from behind, Kara weakens Brainiac again using her heat vision. Brainiac slowly gets up, but a little weak.) (to Supergirl) You will regret that. (He approaches Supergirl, extending his strong tendrils and is about to capture, but gets blurred by Batman's smoke grenade.) (to Batman) You are persistent, but primitive theatrics cannot save you. [SEMI-FINAL SHOWDOWN 2: Batman vs Brainiac. Batman emerges victorious!]
Batman: Like you said, I'm persistent. (He goes to Superman to check what's happening. Kara looks at both of them, who prevailed in stopping Brainiac.) (To Superman) We need to get you out of there!
Superman: (amidst all the stress controlling the Skull ship) Not. yet. The cities... (All of the cities collected by Brainiac are restored back on Earth. Batman and Supergirl look at one city still in Brainiac's ship. Green Lantern, The Flash and Wonder Woman join these three in the ship. Superman tries really hard to restore that one city back, but fails and instead, becomes weak and falls down.) (Supergirl and Wonder Woman go to check if Superman's okay)
Wonder Woman: You're okay... (Aquaman and Black Adam also join the crew which succeeded this mission.)
Aquaman: I thought it was too late, but... I can hear the heartbeat of Atlantis--Brainiac's work is undone!
Superman: (regaining senses) Not all of it... I couldn't save everyone.
Batman: Some cities are still trapped in the collection. Others were lost... wiped from the Ship's memory. Metropolis, Coast City...
Green Lantern: (worried; in doubt) But--we can still save them, right? Carol? My family?
Superman: (in grief) I'm sorry, Hal. (Wonder Woman and Supergirl help Superman to get up.)
Wonder Woman: First Krypton, now Earth. No other world should suffer this. (Superman walks towards the fallen Brainiac to kill him, but is stopped by Batman.)
Batman: Clark, no. [and HERE'S THE BEGINNING OF THE RIFT BETWEEN SUPERHEROES] (Superman gives a confused and a raging look at Batman for stopping him.) Even if I agreed that he should die, you can't. We need him alive to save the rest of our cities.
Superman: (in disagreement) No we don't. With more time and Cyborg's help, the Ship will obey me.
Batman: Or we could lose more cities. (the argument heats up.)
The Flash: (in support of Batman) Bruce is right. We can't be sure.
Aquaman: (against Flash) What we can be sure of is that Brainiac puts everyone else at risk.
Wonder Woman: This is no different than Joker. If you'd killed him, we might-- (interrupted by Batman)
Batman: It was never that simple, Diana!
Superman: Yes it is, Bruce. Metropolis and Coast City are gone. (Batman sneaks out a metal: Gold Kryptonite from his suit) How many more innocent people die before you accept that some lives need to be taken?! (and Batman scratches that weapon across Superman's chest, a quick incapacitation of Superman's powers, as he falls down weak. Everyone step back seeing this surprise assualt. Blood flows out from his chest.) My powers? How did you...?
Batman: (clarifying Superman) Gold Kryptonite. Courtesy of Firestorm.
Wonder Woman: Get up, Kal. (Batman surrounds Superman and warns him of any movement.)
Batman: STAY DOWN! Enough exposure and you'll be de-powered permanently.
Superman: (Slowly getting up.) This madness has to end, Bruce. (They face each other.)

[CHOOSE YOUR SIDE...SUPERMAN or BATMAN]

FINAL Chapter: Absolute Power... if Superman was chosenEdit

[In continuation to Chapter 11...] (Batman and Superman engage in a duel, dodging each other's attacks. Superman manages to take away the Gold Kryptonite by bending his wrist as Wonder Woman takes it away. Superman strangles Batman, while Supergirl tries to stop her cousin.)

Supergirl: You don't want to do this. (Superman tries to free himself from Supergirl, but can't do so. From behind, Green Lantern tosses Superman away, releasing Batman from Superman's clutches. Supergirl helps Batman out.)
Green Lantern: (trying to avert further violence; to Superman) Stop, Clark! This is over. (Wonder Woman picks her sword and tries to intrude in the fight for Superman, but is held by Flash. However, she tackles Flash with a blow. Superman and Green Lantern get ready to battle, while Supergirl is held captive by Black Adam to stop her from further intrusion. Aquaman comes from behind to attack Batman, while Superman tackles Green Lantern. They continue their fight outside the Ship as Lantern tosses Superman outside. Both try dropping each other and they fall with a bang!)
Superman: (surprised by Green Lantern's oppression) How can you be against me on this? He took Coast City!
Green Lantern: Rage... (as Hal feels controlled by some power... the Red Lantern's rage. Eyes turn red.)
Superman: Think about Carol, Hal. Brainiac has to pay!
Green Lantern: No, Clark. My rage won't bring Carol back. Just like yours couldn't bring back Lois. (Both of them fight. Superman wins.)
Superman: You shouldn't have come back, Hal.

[Back in Brainiac's ship, Aquaman tackles Batman, ultimately for Batman to prevail.]

Batman: I'm tired of fighting you, Arthur. (Batman walks away. Black Adam inflicts more pain to Supergirl with his magic. Batman tries to sneak-attack on him, but he's also victimized by Black Adam's magic. Black Adam takes away Batman out of the ship. In another corner of the ship, Flash overpowers Wonder Woman and helps out Supergirl.)
Supergirl: Batman knew they would double-cross him. We have to move! (Outside, Superman continues his raging punches on Green Lantern, until he finally twists Lantern's fingers. Flash and Supergirl hold Superman back, only for Superman to give them a taste of his super-strength. Supergirl gets up and goes towards her cousin to make him understand.) Kal, stop! These are your friends!
Superman: My "friends" should be helping me instead of standing in my way. (Supergirl and Superman head for a clash at super-speed, which ends in Superman taking Supergirl by her scruff and flinging her to a building. Flash charges on Superman at lightning speed, delivering swift, continuous punches on his abdomen. Superman pushes him away with his freeze breath and hurls Flash with a mighty punch. They both face each other.)

This is on you, Barry. When you defected, the Regime fell. You left us vulnerable to Brainiac! You shouldn't have lost your nerve.

The Flash: I lost my nerve when I didn't stand up to you the first time, Clark. Never again. (Both of them fight. Superman wins.)
Superman: Stand up to that. (Supergirl arrives at the scene.)
Supergirl: Kal!
Superman: I can't forgive you so easily this time, Kara.
Supergirl: There's still hope, Kal. I know you're afraid. For everybody. Ever since you lost Lois.
Superman: I used to be afraid. (after a pause) Afraid my powers would make people fear me. Afraid who I'd hurt if I wasn't careful every second of everyday. I spent my whole life holding back. (in utter grief) My fear cost me Lois. That's why I don't hold back anymore.

[Superman chases Supergirl in air. Wonder Woman joins the chase with Superman. Kara breaks through the roads, leading Superman and Wonder Woman to the underground and cleverly to the Batcave.]

Wonder Woman: She led us right to him. ("him" refers to Batman)
Superman: (to Supergirl) It's no accident you brought us here.
Batman: (from behind) Of course, it isn't. (as Wonder Woman and Superman turn back, they see Batman in a Kryptonite-based Bat-suit.)
Supergirl: (to Superman) I warned him about Diana. But I didn't believe you'd turn on me. (Superman signals as Wonder Woman heads to engage Batman in a duel with her, leaving the cousins for a face-off.)
Superman: You should want Brainiac dead more than anyone. Instead, you are undermining me.
Supergirl: Thank Rao, your father can't see you. When General Zod tried to take over Krypton, Jor-El (Superman's father) led the fight against him! That's who you come from... That's who you are, Kal. Not this.
Superman: If Jor-El had been more like Zod, he might have saved Krypton. And I will save the Earth. [Sub-Boss fight: Supergirl vs Superman. Superman wins.] (Kal feels sorry and in grief that he had beaten up his cousin, who was meant to be his protector. Looking at her) I'm sorry... (Batman arrives at the scene, defeating Wonder Woman)
Batman: Your war is over. (as Batman and Superman are now face-to-face for a final talk.)
Superman: (emotional) Fighting on the same side, it felt like old times. But I guess we both knew it would end this way.
Batman: Do you remember that night? When you told me Lois was pregnant?
Superman: You knew. Even before I said anything.
Batman: That was a good memory.
Superman: From another lifetime.
Batman: I miss the people we were then.
Superman: Me too. (Superman punches Batman at super-speed, tossing him behind.) Quit, Bruce. You can't win.
Batman: You of all people know, Clark. I never quit. [FINAL SHOWDOWN: Superman v Batman, Superman emerges victorious!]
Superman: It's over, Bruce. (Batman fails to stop Superman treading in a wrong path. Superman further weakens him before he could gain energy back.)
Batman: You don't have to do this. (Wonder Woman joins Superman)
Superman: I'm not letting Brainiac live to put the Earth at risk again.
Batman: Then what? I'm your next victim?
Superman: (strangling Batman) I could have killed you years ago. It would've been so easy...
Batman: So go ahead, Clark. Do it. Show me what a villain looks like...
Superman: Is that what you want to see? (Batman nods as Superman gives him one last head-to-head knock and Batman falls unconscious.)
Wonder Woman: He's still breathing.
Superman: If he dies, he dies a martyr. I want him kept alive.
Wonder Woman: We need to deal with Kara.
Superman: She's young. Give her time. She'll come around.
Wonder Woman: And if she doesn't?
Superman: She will. This time, everyone will.

Epilogue (if Superman wins)Edit

[Superman kills Brainiac, bonds with the ship, and reestablishes the regime with the help of all of Brainiac's captives. He offers an imprisoned Supergirl the chance to join his army, claiming he restored the remaining cities and put Earth at peace. When she refuses, Superman then brings out a mind-controlled, roboticized Batman and explains that she will join one way or another.]

The DIALOGUE : (In the Prison for Meta-Humans...)

Supergirl: (looking at Superman) You bonded with Brainiac's ship...
Superman: Brainiac is dead. The remaining cities have been restored. And just like I told you, Earth is at peace.
Supergirl: Under your heel.
Superman: I wish you'd come around, Kara. I'm building a new army to protect the Earth. There are billions of warriors trapped in Brainiac's collection. Kryptonians, Daxamites, Czarnians... I'll have a legion whose power rivals the combined Lantern Corps. And I want you to lead it with me.
Supergirl: Never Kal.
Superman: You'll either make the right choice, or I'll make it for you. (Superman then brings out a mind-controlled, roboticized Batman. Supergirl is shocked to see it.) What's it going to be? (Credits roll.)

FINAL Chapter: Absolute Justice... if Batman was chosenEdit

[In continuation to Chapter 11...] (Batman and Superman engage in a duel, dodging each other's attacks. Superman manages to take away the Gold Kryptonite by bending his wrist as Wonder Woman takes it away. Superman strangles Batman, while Supergirl tries to stop her cousin.)

Supergirl: You don't want to do this. (Superman tries to free himself from Supergirl, but can't do so. From behind, Green Lantern tosses Superman away, releasing Batman from Superman's clutches. Supergirl helps Batman out.)
Green Lantern: (trying to avert further violence; to Superman) Stop, Clark! This is over. (Wonder Woman picks her sword and tries to intrude in the fight for Superman, but is held by Flash. However, she tackles Flash with a blow. Superman and Green Lantern get ready to battle, while Supergirl is held captive by Black Adam to stop her from further intrusion. Aquaman comes from behind and attacks Batman. Batman answers it with a smoke grenade, choking Aquaman's and then tackles him. Superman continues tackling Green Lantern. They continue their fight outside the Ship as Lantern tosses Superman outside. Batman continues dodging Aquaman's strikes. While doing so...)
Batman: Arthur, don't do this! You don't want to follow Clark!
Aquaman: I'm not following anyone. (kicking Batman) You've never understood Atlantis, Bruce... We're an ancient people with an old-fashioned sense of justice. (Both of them fight. Batman wins.)
Batman: Atlantis needs to get with the times. (Aquaman gives a final assault on Batman, ultimately for Batman to prevail as he thrusts the Trident at Aquaman itself.) I'm tired of fighting you, Arthur. (Batman walks away. Black Adam inflicts more pain to Supergirl with his magic. Batman tries to sneak-attack on him, but he's also victimized by Black Adam's magic. Black Adam takes away Batman out of the ship. In another corner of the ship, Flash overpowers Wonder Woman and helps out Supergirl.)
Supergirl: Batman knew they would double-cross him. We have to move!

[Scene cuts. Black Adam takes Batman captive in air outside Brainiac's ship.]

Black Adam: (to Batman) There's no escape. (Batman gives a head-to-head knock at Adam.) You wish to fall? So be it. (and Black Adam leaves Batman to fall from that height. As Batman gets closer to the ground, he glides easily with his cape, safely landing. Black Adam also descends towards Batman.)
Batman: Go back to Kahndaq, Adam. Stay here and you'll be prosecuted.
Black Adam: You'd have to capture me, Batman. And I've underestimated you for the last time. (Both of them fight. Batman wins.)
Batman: All that ancient wisdom. Wasted. (Through Brother Eye comms.) Supergirl, where are you?
Supergirl: They're following me. ("They" refers Superman and Wonder Woman)
Batman: Lead them to the Cave.

[Scene cuts. Batman leaves for his BatCave. He gets his Bat-mobile and reaches his cave. Through his command center, he now wears a Kryptonite-based Bat-suit. Kara leads Superman and Wonder Woman to the underground and cleverly to the Batcave as Batman said.]

Wonder Woman: She led us right to him. ("him" refers to Batman)
Superman: (to Supergirl) It's no accident you brought us here.
Batman: (from behind) Of course, it isn't. (as Wonder Woman and Superman turn back, Batman appears.)
Supergirl: (to Superman) I warned him about Diana. But I didn't believe you'd turn on me. (Superman signals as Wonder Woman heads to engage Batman in a duel with her. Both the cousins leave to fight elsewhere.)
Wonder Woman: (to Batman) This is the last time, Bruce. No more secrets. No more schemes.
Batman: Schemes? I'm not the one who stoked Clark's worst fears. (Wonder Woman attacks him with his sword, only to be defended and hit back by Batman. They continue tackling each other.)
Wonder Woman: To pacify man's world, Kal needed steel, not compassion.
Batman: But you didn't bring peace. You started a war. [Sub-boss fight: Wonder Woman vs Batman. Batman wins.] (to a defeated Wonder Woman) Your war is over. (Batman then approaches Superman who had defeated Supergirl.)
Superman: (emotional) Fighting on the same side, it felt like old times. But I guess we both knew it would end this way.
Batman: Do you remember that night? When you told me Lois was pregnant?
Superman: You knew. Even before I said anything.
Batman: That was a good memory.
Superman: From another lifetime.
Batman: I miss the people we were then.
Superman: Me too. (Superman punches Batman at super-speed, tossing him behind.) Quit, Bruce. You can't win.
Batman: You of all people know, Clark. I never quit. [FINAL SHOWDOWN: Batman v Superman, Batman emerges victorious!] (Superman gets up again and decides to try one last assault on Batman, but a series of punches from Batman just weakens Superman more and finally falls unconscious. Batman too drops at his knee, seeing how he failed to make his friend Kal understand and instead, had to take him down. Supergirl gains consciousness and comes towards Batman.)
Supergirl: (worried; to Batman) Is he...
Batman: He'll be out for a while. I'm sorry, Kara.
Supergirl: For what?
Batman: I couldn't save him.

Epilogue (if Batman wins)Edit

[Batman depowers Superman permanently with Gold Kryptonite and imprisons him in the Phantom Zone. He decides to create a new Justice League with his allies and offers Supergirl a membership within it.]

The DIALOGUE: (A defeated, handcuffed Superman (in a prisoner's attire) is now incapacitated of his powers permanently using Gold Kryptonite and the red sun rays.)

Batman: (to Supergirl) Kara, it's safe now. (as she descends down and walks towards Clark.)
Clark Kent: (egoistic) Even without my powers, the Phantom Zone can't hold me. I'll be back.
Batman: We'll be ready. (Superman stares at Batman as Batman now opens the entrance to Phantom Zone, imprisoning Clark. Before leaving...)
Supergirl: Kal, I don't... I wish--
Clark Kent: We were family, Kara.
Supergirl: We still are. I hope someday you'll see that. (as Superman turns back and enters into the Phantom Zone)
Batman: (trying to console Supergirl) Are you all right?
Supergirl: No. (after a brief pause) This symbol should give people hope. (pointing at the 'S' in her suit) He made them fear it.
Batman: That symbol's meaning is up to the person who wears it. When Clark and I founded the Justice League, we didn't govern people. We protected them. Plain and simple. Maybe... the world could use a team like that again. (suggesting the idea of forming Justice League again with Supergirl) Welcome to the circle of trust. (and they both shake hands. Credits roll.)
