Synopsis

Mister Terrific tries to contact the Green Lantern Corps in Space Sector 666 to recall them to Earth for the fight against the Dark Army, but the signal breaks down and a horde of Shadow Demons swarm out of the Black Lantern Central Power Battery and attack them.

On Earth, the assembled heroes battle Pariah’s army of possessed villains. Changeling attacks Deathstroke in a powerful werewolf form, but Slade appears to be unkillable as Darkness oozes from his wounds rather than blood.

In Multiverse-2, Barry Allen and Hal Jordan devise a way to combine their powers and teleport the Justice League back to Earth 0. However, Hal warns them that it may not be enough to break their connection to the paradise worlds and that some of them may not make it. Green Arrow tells them that it’s worth the risk to save everything, despite Black Canary’s warnings that he may die if he tries to leave. Hal and Barry put their plan into action and the League disappear in a blaze of light.

Meanwhile at the Hall of Justice, the heroes are being overwhelmed by sheer weight of numbers. Jace Fox arrives with reinforcements, but Pariah sends them into their own paradise worlds. Mister Terrific brings out Pariah’s antimatter cannon, believing he can use it to cut Pariah off from the corrupted Darkness and remove his powers. However, Pariah sees them and sends the Dark Army to stop them.

Jon Kent fights the entire Dark Army single-handed, while Yara Flor sneaks up behind Pariah and binds him with her Golden Boleadoras to force him to see the truth: the voice of the “Great Darkness” is nothing but the sickness in his own mind. However, Pariah refuses to believe it and breaks free. He attempts to banish Yara to her own world, but Jace shoots him with the cannon, which he has modified to turn Pariah’s own powers against him. Pariah disappears into his own paradise world, a recreation of his universe lost in the Crisis on Infinite Earths.

The Dark Army are diminished but continue to fight, still possessed by the corrupted Darkness. Doomsday almost kills Jon Kent, but he is saved by his father, who has returned to Earth with the League and the entire Green Lantern Corps. The heroes continue to battle the possessed villains, and in the middle of the melee Arsenal and Black Canary reunite, having each believed the other was dead. However, they realize that Green Arrow did not return with the others.

Even with Pariah gone the Darkness and his infinite Earths continue to spread across the Multiverse. The corrupted Darkness has possessed Deathstroke, who declares he will kill every last one of them.
