Synopsis

Professor Ivo and Professor T.O. Morrow raise their glasses in a toast to Tomorrow.

Superman and Java attend Metamorpho’s funeral. Superman flies to Batman’s cave and uses his teleporter to go to the JLA Watchtower. The League meets and begins the selection process for its new candidates.

One of the new candidates who is accepted is Tomorrow Woman. After she finishes with JLA missions, Tomorrow Woman returns home to the warehouse where Ivo and Morrow are headquartering themselves. It turns out that Tomorrow Woman is an android created by Ivo and Morrow, whom they made her as a living bomb to eliminating the JLA.

On another mission with the JLA, Tomorrow Woman ultimately disobeys her creators’ commands and sacrifices herself to save the world. Much to Ivo’s surprise, Morrow actually hoped that this would happen but only more than he expected because he designed Tomorrow Woman’s brain he himself had created was sophisticated and human enough to develop her own personality and feelings. Shortly afterward, Morrow and Ivo are caught by the JLA. Superman sees to Tomorrow Woman’s funeral.
