Synopsis

Kid Eternity flees from the sorcerer Mordru. He summons aid from historical dead fighters but they are quickly dispatched of by Mordru. Kid Eternity is pinned against the wall as Mordru walks up calmly to finish him off.

At Valhalla Cemetery, the JSA hold funeral services for the recently departed Sandman, the original Sandman. While Sandy delivers the eulogy, the Flash believes he spots the ghost of Kent Nelson, the original Doctor Fate, standing behind a tombstone.

Unexpectedly, Dr. Fate, Jared Stevens, arrives through a mystic portal and falls over dead muttering the words, “Dark Lord” as he passes away. The JSA members spot a dagger sticking out of his back and know Mordru is behind this action.

Suddenly, a group of Egyptian zombies calling themselves the Sons of Anubis appear and attack the JSA. They spring into action and fight the zombies. As everything calms down, the Scarab appears.

Elsewhere, Todd Rice speaks with someone at a diner who calls himself Ian. When the waitress stops by and asks who he was talking to and the seat across from him is empty, Todd claims he wasn’t talking to anyone.
