Brianiac 5 states that the Crisis and Darksied's fall has affected time travel and that he cannot possibly send him to the correct point in time he promised.

On board the Watchtower Black Canary makes The Tattooed Man an honorary member of the Justice League so he can tell The Resistance about his symbol that Black Lightning told him of. Soon the Watchtower is then confronted by the Justifiers in various space ships Black Canary orders The Ray to leave.

Supergirl and Mary Marvel continue to fight each other an injured Black Adam feels the power of the Gods that give the Marvels their powers fading away and confirms that it is Desaad that took over Mary Marvel. Supergril briefly stops Mary Marvel and Captain Marvel tells Supergirl he has an idea on how to stop Mary.

In the Checkmate Castle Shilo Norman tells Mr. Terrific that the importance of the symbol on his and Sonny Sumo and The Super Young Team faces telling them how it appeared as ancient markings, crop circles and cave paintings saying it means "Freedom from Restriction". Mr. Terrific is then pulled away from the conversation by his duties as Checkmate White King. Shilo Norman then speaks to Sonny Sumo on the effect the Omega Sanction had on him Sonny states that the original Sonny was sent in feudal Japan and died a happy man and how he somehow stumbled through a hole in his life into Sonny's body. Secretly Atomic Lantern Boy admits to Sonic Lightning Flash his love for Aquazon while Aquazon admits to Lolita Canary she loves Sonic Lightning Flash all the members of The Super Young Team are gathered by Shilo Norman who wants to state their powers but Superbat says his power is his wealth.

Back in the Watchtower the Anti-Life survivors Black Canary, Oracle, Jai West, Iris West, Joan Garrick, Linda Park West are brought to their knees by the Justifiers led by an Anti-Life infected Black Lightning and Green Arrow. As the Justifiers almost place the Anti-Life helmets on them The Tatooed Man fights back and uses the freedom symbol which starts to disrupt the Anti-Life Equation on the Justifiers Green Arrow himself is confronted by his wife Black Canary.

Renee Montoya is in the Checkmate: Omega's headquarters where she is introduced to The Atoms Ray Palmer and Ryan Choi who are assigned to ride the graviton superhighway to another universe.

At the public execution of The Calculator Sivana and Lex Luthor make their move against Libra Sivana chose to fight Libra when he saw his daughter forced into an Anti-Life helmet designed by Mad Hatter Luthor's reason is because he is still fond of life and Darkseid is leading a war against it. Libra then returns to estimate that Luthor was the informant in the Secret Society to The Resistance Luthor then with his fully charged armor kills Libra but Sivana is skeptical about his death. Sivana tells Luthor that his signal jammer will disrupt the voice Anti-Life victims hear as Luthor's and not Darkseid letting Luthor control those near him Luthor then saves Calculator from hanging.

In Iris Allen West's apartment all The Flashes reunite Barry Allen asks Jay Garrick to look after Iris while Barry and Wally decide to maneuver The Black Racer (a grim reaper) to hit Darkseid. Barry tells Wally that technically Darkseid is at the center of a personal singularity beyond the reach of light meaning they will have to run faster than they have ever ran the two then zoom out of the room.

In Darkseid's chamber room he tells Batman to come from out the shadows and confront him. A visibly injured and tired Batman then confronts Darkseid holding a unique looking gun. Batman says that he will break his rule about firearms once and shots Darkseid in the chest with the same God-killing bullet used to kill Orion at the same time Darkseid blasts Batman with the Omega Sanction.

Metron holding a rubix cube talks to the fully repowered Nix Uaton saying that his arrival inaugurates the Fifth World and says that the humans face a threat greater than Darkseid. Nix is overwhelmed seeing some of the events of the universe at the same time including the Green Lantern Corps nearing Earth, Hawkman admitting to Hawkgirl that he would rather die and be reborn in a new so that maybe she could love him again and Supergirl and Freddie and Mary seeing something in the sky.

It is in an angry Superman who blasts the force field around Darkseid's strong hold while the other heroes see the sky turn red and see other Earths, Superman breaks through and holds Batman's dead burnt body.
