In the wake of the incident of Hourman’s capture which cost the lives of several policemen and a photographer, King Faraday, on orders from President Eisenhower, debrief Superman and Wonder Woman in seeing the apprehension of the Batman, who is branded as an outlaw by the American government after non-federal sponsored heroes are made illegal in order to quell the growth of vigilantism, and to avoid the public’s notice. However, Diana refuses to take part in hunting down an honourable man and sees nothing good coming out of this.

Batman in turn is already prepare for facing Superman – as being Bruce Wayne, he was present in hosting Faraday’s operation at Paradise Island beforehand – in which he hires Catwoman in stealing Kryptonite from Lex Luthor. Superman confronts Batman at a junkyard outside of Gotham where the latter surprises the Man of Steel. Batman lures Superman to the Batcave where he springs his trap by shooting the stolen Kryptonite into Superman, weakening him. But the battle is interfere by Wonder Woman, who prevents Superman and Batman from fighting each other and criticising them for what they doing; pointing out the three of them are the only active superheroes left and want to band together to do what is right. Superman, however, is distrustful of cooperating with Batman for almost killing him and hiding his face behind a mask. In response, Batman agrees with Wonder Woman’s proclamation and earning the other heroes’ trust by revealing his identity as Bruce Wayne to them. To conceal their alliance, Superman and Batman play out a mock epic battle in public in which the latter “beaten” the former.
