Synopsis

Wonder Woman and Zatanna, who now has the gem her father’s sent her, track down Felix Faust who has already received a devastating visit from The Otherkind. Zatanna tells him how her father has been using Saragon’s Ruby to fight these creatures for years, but she needs to know the whereabouts of Mordru, as he is the only one who can wield it properly.

He tells them to visit Papa Midnite, who in turn says he last saw Mordru a few months ago and he had apparently been spending some time at The Cold Flame.

Meanwhile Man-Bat manages to perform an experiment that frees Khalid Nassour.

At the Oblivion Bar, where the magical community has been hiding out, Jason Blood and Bobo discuss next steps but are cut short when The Otherkind arrive.

Bobo uses his sword to transport the survivors to Myrra and tells them they are all safe now but is horrified to see Doctor Fate waiting for them with his comrades, the Lords of Orders.
