Four part mini-series following on from the aftermath of the Dark Metal event.

Synopsis

The heroes of Earth take on a seemingly attacking Brainiac but he defeats them easily and kidnaps several heroes and also a few villains into his ship. He then explains that his attack was merely a demonstration of how ineffective they will be against a new threat – the Omega Titans – and that he is going to have the heroes create four new teams in order to take on these powerful creatures.

Brainiac goes on to explain how these four ancient Gods of myth embody one of the fundamental energies of life – Entropy, Wisdom, Wonder and Mystery. They each believed their core energy to be the dominant one and to prove it to themselves they planted seeds in civilisations across the cosmos. At the end of the Universe they would then return, assess which energy weighed supreme and the winning brother would reabsorb that world.

When the Source Wall was accidentally broken as a result of defeating the Dark Knights it set in motion their return. They are set to destroy every living world until nothing remains. However, Brainiac is convinced they can be stopped by restoring balance to the four energies. He has therefore redistributed the heroes and villains into four teams each embodying one of the energies and also wearing new adapted costumes.

Meanwhile, back on Earth, following Brainiac’s attack Amanda Waller has initiated a defence protocol involving psychics, whose combined talents can enter Brainiac’s mind and retrieve his plans.

Back on board Brainiac’s ship he continues to tell the gathered group that his home planet, Colu is one of the first to be attacked. He also adds that if the heroes do not help him to save his world he has activated the seed on Earth ensuring that the Omega Titans will destroy their home too if they do not stop the monsters.

He then begins to explain the plan, stating that they must follow his precise instructions to the letter and that any deviation will result in catastrophe. But just as he starts to tell them what he needs them to do Waller’s team manage to hack him, causing his brain to explode and leaving the heroes none the wiser as to what he needed them to do!
