Synopsis for "Savage Dawn - Assault"
The Justice League Watchtower is incapacitated and dozens of people are dead or injured. Superman is doing his best to keep everyone safe but knows that he must regain his full powers somehow. Wonder Woman is at the Watchtower, while the other JL heroes have been captured by Vandal Savage's forces. Unfortunately, Frankenstein incapacitates her as well; at the same time, Vandal comes into contact with Superman. Just as he took Superman's powers, Vandal plans to do the same with his friends.
Using Wrath's black mass, Vandal continues his attack on the city and causes multiple casualties. Superman tries to save a bus from crashing off of a bridge, but only the timely arrival of the Justice League United allows him to succeed. Along with them come Steel, Lana and Dr. Ray Palmer, who have been working on a secret project that can turn the tide: a suit of armor powered by Kryptonite. A human wearer will only last a few minutes, but Superman might have hours at least; which is fine by Superman.
Wrath is horrified Vandal just killed hundreds of people, but Vandal doesn't care. All he wants is the power to rule the world, while Wrath thought they were doing the right thing. Moments later, the heroes break into the Watchtower. The Justice League United takes on Vandal's forces, giving Superman enough time to save Wonder Woman. Vandal is about to kill the two heroes when Wrath attacks him from behind. The attack cause an explosion which blows Superman and Wonder Woman outside of the Watchtower and they crash to the ground. Vandal survived the attack and the breach is has been sealed. Even though Vandal has lost Wonder Woman, he has gained six new subjects: the captured JLU. Now, he has everything he needs for his final strike.
