Synopsis

The Eradicator tells Wonder Woman that the Earth has juts seen one of their mightiest heroes fall. He tells her that his attempt to ensure Krypton’s survival through genetic purity had failed. As she scans her body he continues that she is an Apex of her species that does not rely on the yellow sun for her powers and that, by combining her bio-resources with his he will be able to create a race stronger than any other in the universe.

Wonder Woman remains defiant but is helpless as he begins the draining process on her. But he is suddenly blasted in the back by a weapon and drops the Amazon Princess, turning to see that he attacker is none other than Sodam Yat.

As the league uses the opportunity to mount a rescue operation and save Wonder Woman, the Eardictor summons his Daxamite army back from their stations over the Earth’s capitals to protect him.

Flash then arrives and tells Earadictor that he is going to use his speed force to turn back time and stop them. They give chase to him around the world, intent on stopping him crossing the timeline but he just manages to zoom through.

They find themselves on a barren moonscape and at first the Eradicator is triumphant and hsi determines that they are still in the present time. But as he tells Flash he has failed the rest of the league emerge and reveal that instead of the timeline, they have actually lured him and his army through a magic teleportation portal. They are all now on a completely different planet – and which has no yellow sun to feed their powers!
