Synopsis

The league take on the Earadicator and his Daxamite army, who find that they no longer have their strength and powers and fall easily to the league. The Eradicator realises his army is now inferior and initiates a cellular self destruct protocol on them all, ripping their powers from them. He begins analysing each of the league members, ruling each of their bio-signs out.

Superman, who is also bleeding due the lack of yellow sunlight, offers himself up as the only one who has true Krypton DNA inside him. The Eradicator duly obliges and begins to drain the Man of Steel. But distracted, the villain is unaware that Wonder Woman has crept up behind him and stabs him in the back with her magic infused sword. Even his powerful technology is no match for the mystical, god-like forces that forged the weapon and as his systems fail, the Amazon Princess rips his head from his body.

A short while later the Green Lantern Corps take away the Daxamites as prisoners while the league returns to the Hall of Justice to celebrate their victory.

Meanwhile, Batman tries to persuade Madame Xanadu to join the league but she declines and instead warns him that they will soon be facing a reckoning…
