Darrin Profitt, now calling himself the Red King, begins the first of his three attempts to defeat the Justice League. In this scenario he makes a dramatic appearance assisting the Justice League in a battle with the Royal Flush Gang. Over time he begins to win over the League both as the Red King and as Darrin Profitt. Despite supplying the Flush Gang with their tech the Red King finally defeats the group and Superman offers membership in the Justice League.
After studying it for a time Profitt becomes drawn into the jewel and watches as Doctor Destiny tries to repair the Materioptikon. An offhand comment by Destiny prompts Profitt to take control of the jewel and use it’s abilities to explore a seemingly infinite number of scenarios for personal gain. After going through an endless number of possibilities Darrin finally achieves everything he thought he wanted, but soon realises it is not enough. At Destiny’s prodding Darrin focuses his energies on defeating the Justice League and ruling the world. With only three timelines left to him Darrin crafts the world’s most powerful armour any reality has ever seen, takes the name Red King and sets out on his quest for world domination.
