Synopsis for New Gods: "Pursuit to Eternity"

Highfather tries but fails to best Darkseid in battle. The master of Apokolips, protected by Anti-Life and the Omega Force, heads past the Promethean Giants, seeking to breach the Great Barrier and reach the Source. However, Highfather tells Orion that Darkseid will not be able to battle him and open the Source at the same time. Thus, by fighting Darkseid, Orion shatters his Omega Force and throws his father into the barrier without protection, turning him into a Promethean Giant. On Earth, the Antagonist is destroyed when Metron causes the six humans to unite their will with a Mother Box. When Darkseid, as a Promethean Giant, hurtles towards Apokolips, DeSaad unwittingly destroys him with a defense weapon.

Synopsis for Green Lantern: "Deadly Song Of the Wizard!"

After Green Lantern repairs his truck, Hal senses his power battery is missing. The ring detects a trail of energy left by the battery, so he follows that route to a planetoid. Myrwhidden, the one responsible for the theft, takes refuge in that planet and engulfs its atmosphere in a mist that makes time pass faster. When Hal enters, his ring starts to deplete sooner while he fights some yellow statues Myrwhydden invoked from the sand. Hal makes his way past the statues and inside a castle, where he finds his foe and his battery enclosed in a yellow capsule. After capturing Green Lantern, Myrwhydden explains that he was transferred from Hal's previous ring to his new one. He then got free when the energy leeches started to drain Green Lantern's ring. That's when he robbed the battery to effect his revenge. Hal Jordan bluffs by saying that the battery is ineffective due to the Guardians cutting its power off. Wanting to prove his bluff and use it to kill Green Lantern, Myrwhydden takes the battery out of its casing. However, Hal made an energy duplicate before entering the mist, and now that dupe arrives and retrieves the battery, saving the real Green Lantern and defeating Myrwhydden. With the foe knocked out, tied up, and gagged, Green Lantern takes Myrwhydden to the Guardians.

Synopsis for Wonder Woman: "The Quest for the Stolen Soul!"

Steve Trevor (aka "Steve Howard") has died, and Wonder Woman asks Aphrodite to bring him back to life again. She refuses. Wonder Woman says that she will take matters into her own hands and uses her magic lasso to create a portal into the Land of the Dead, which is ruled by Pluto. There she battles the minions of the lord of death, and tries to bargain with him, offering her soul for Steve Trevor's life. Pluto refuses, and keeps the attacks coming, saying she will eventually weaken and die. When she eventually refuses to even put up a fight, he angrily says that he cannot bargain with her, as he doesn't have Trevor's soul. Worse, Wonder Woman feels life departing from her body. At that point, a small spirit which appears to be Steve Trevor's soul appears and guides Wonder Woman's essence back to her body. Once there, Wonder Woman learns from Aphrodite that Zeus has taken Steve's soul and put it among the stars. Wonder Woman resigns herself to Steve's fate, knowing his love will be with her forever.
