Synopsis

The Justice League members struggle to process the shock of discovering the teenagers in front of them are their own children and ask for proof. Cyborg scans their DNA and confirms that they are all related and have come from the future.

As the children introduce themselves to each of their parents most reunions are happy, but when Hunter reveals he is Wonder Woman’s son but that she had given him away as a child presumably because he was not a female she is both shocked to the core and deeply hurt, becoming very quiet as the others continue their conversations.

Jessica and Barry apparently get together and produce Cruise, Jason and Jenny, while Serenity is the offspring of Mera and Aquaman. And Cube’s father is Cyborg.

Cube downloads all the data he is carrying to Cyborg so that he in turn can play it back to the rest of them so they can get up to speed pn what has happened over the next decade.

At first everything was happy as the babies were born and the children were loved by their respective league member parents, adopting many of their powers and hanging out together.

But then a great superhuman war broke out and the ordinary people of the world did not stand a chance in the bloodbath that followed. The children were hidden away on Olympus, by their parents, which was now deserted, and waited for their return. But as the years went past and they grew up the children realised their parents were not coming back, so they left Olympus and tried to continue the fight and do what they could in the shattered remains of the world.

But then Sovereign arrived and smashed Olympus down onto the planet, taking it for herself. The children had then tracked down the last infinity stones and managed to return back to this timeline to seek their parents help.

Superman suggests that the League take in the children as they must be hungry and need some rest, but Wonder Woman is still very subdued and asks to remain alone.

Meanwhile in the Batcave, Batman is running analysis of the Kindred’s song and the computer diagnoses that it was some kind of signal. It also adds that a similar signal was detected at the ruins of Midway City – more of an echo.

As Batman instructs all the data to be sent to Cyborg on the Satellite a smoke grenade is suddenly thrown across the floor. Momentarily blinded Batman is attacked and beaten unconscious by Arthur Curry, who as managed to follow the children back in time!
