Synopsis

After the League is separated they find themselves having been teleported to various locations and now on their own. Batman had guessed their next move and knows that together the League is strong so the best way to defeat them is to divide them.

Flash finds himself in a cave beneath Central City facing off to his Batman nemesis and having to outrun vehicles imbued with the speed force.

Aquaman is transported to the depths of Amnesty Bay and forced to fight a possessed Mera.

Hal Jordan appears beneath Coast City.

And Wonder Woman arrives beneath the foundations of A.R.G.U.S. head quarters in Washington DC. There she is confronted by her Batman nemesis who shows her that the chamber is filled with weaponry for her to choose from that he has taken from the various Gods he has killed . She elects to drop her sword however and challenges him to hand to hand combat.

They grapple and she is surprised at the skills he demonstrates. when he throws her to the floor he reveals that on his world it was actually her who had taught him how to fight. She accuses him of lying but he replies that he speaks the truth and that after slaying the Gods he had attacked her sisters on Themyscira in a battle that raged for three days solid.

Batman had ordered the Ferryman on the River Styx to collect the coins from every slain Amazon and forged them into the large Golden Drachma she sees before her. As he strikes it he adds that her sisters never did make it to Elysium as Wonder Woman sees to her horror an army of undead Amazons, lead by her mother, advance on her!

And as each member of the league appears to facing their respective doom it is an unwilling and helpless Cyborg, trapped by Batman, who has enabled all this to happen..
