Synopsis for "Hellbound Train"
Black Canary jumps on a heavily armored train which is supposed to carry several dangerous metahumans from the Slab to S.T.A.R. Labs. Oracle had received a tip-off that a breakout is planned and sent Dinah to intervene. Now Black Canary immediately is confronted by U.S. Marshals, but everything gets out of hand when Catwoman joins the fray as well. After using one of her canary cry bombs, Dinah and Catwoman are able to enter the train. Catwoman is hired to deactivate the train's communication and according to her description it is obvious that her client is the same person that tipped off Oracle. Dinah knocks out Catwoman, but then is overwhelmed by the U.S. Marshals.
The Marshals show Dinah the five superpowered beings which are held on board. To her surprise, one of them is Joe Gardner, the clone of Guy Gardner. Canary thinks the breakout will still happen, so she and the female U.S. Marshal in command move to the front of the train. Suddenly, a guy wearing a trenchcoat appears on the tracks. The train is not able to stop in time and is being swallowed entirely into some kind of wormhole. With Black Canary completely off the grid, Oracle contacts Power Girl and asks for her help to find Dinah ...
