Synopsis

In a flashback Aquaman is rescued from the desert where he has been transported by the Fan. But before Green Lantern arrives to rescues him Arthur encounters The Fan who provides him with a hydration suit. But Aquaman realises that for all his “Care” this Fan is a danger to them all.

At the Congressional hearing Cyborg attends to represent Batman and the League and is assisted by the League’s lawyer, Regina Cole.  The committee asks where Batman is.

Meanwhile the Dark Knight is leading the Justice League of America in a rescue mission after a derailed train carrying dangerous chemicals threatens a deadly environmental disaster.

The Justice League are called in to assist as Batman realises that this too much for his team to handle on their own. Social media follows their every movement and begin to comment how it seems the League is only focusing on rescuing the wealthier neighbourhood at the expense of the poorer areas.
