Synopsis

Kishana Lewis and the Martian Manhunter come closer to unlocking Kishana’s ancestral memories which may help defeat the monsters. It is revealed that Abel Carmody married the shaman’s daughter and settled in Black Spirit Lake.

William Hume opens the door to the monsters within the resort, and Wonder Woman radios in to tell the League that she’s going hunting. She’s armed with weaponry from the basement.

Green Lantern tells the League that he can’t find any sign of the evil stirring anywhere in the valley. Manhunter returns and briefs Batman on the relation of Kishana and Abel Carmody. Superman interrupts them, informing them that resort has been breached.

Wonder Woman engages against the creatures but she faces overwhelming odds. Jade arrives to help, but it is too late. Wonder Woman has been subsumed.

Superman and Martian Manhunter try re-igniting the dormant volcano in the vicinity and ridding the monsters, as Lantern struggles to control it while monsters dissipate. Flash takes Plastic Man to Batman at Batman’s behest; in which puts Plastic Man over Kishana so the creatures won’t sense her, then they move out to confront the creatures using Kishana’s gift, passed down from Carmody. On the way out, the transformed Wonder Woman stops Batman’s troupe.
