Monarch finally pits the Supermen against each other. Meanwhile, in the Bleed, Captain Atom (from Earth-38), Quantum-Storm, and Batman (from JSA: The Liberty File) fight Monarch, who reveals that the Blue Beetle (from Earth-33) and Breach were working with him. Back in the Arena, the Supermen channel as much energy into Christopher Kent as they can, but Monarch shakes off his assault. Then, Breach arrives with the “Captain Atom Brigade,” but Monarch defeats all of them and absorbs their power. Fully powered, Monarch heads out with his winning warriors to confront the Monitors.
