Synopsis

While the Superman from Earth-31 rallies the heroes to fight Monarch’s plans, and the Blue Beetle from Earth-33 works on a device to defeat Monarch, the villain continues to pit trios of heroes against each other. After returning the surviving Batmen to the Bleed, Monarch sets the Ray Palmer Ray, Apollo, and the Ray of Earth-10 against each other, then the Blue Beetles and Scarab, and finally the Green Lanterns. But back in the Bleed, Monarch’s men face an unexpected threat.
