Synopsis for "Mettle"

The Legion makes their attack on Stormwatch and the Russian military, whom they display a match of brute force which greatly disturbs Bouncing Boy. However, Stormwatch puts up a fight in which Element Lad is killed by Hellstrike before pulling out.

The Authority turns up at the Halo Corporation in Los Angeles where they explain their hasty retreat that transpired on the Carrier to Zealot. In turn, Zealot informs The Authority that according to Halo's joint alliance with Stormwatch, the emerging heroes are using unprovoked attacks and, to her military assessment, judges that this is not a mere conquest. All they can do is narrow their option in reaching to all available metahumans into autonomous strike forces against these new heroes. Suddenly, Zealot and The Authority are tracked down by Superman, Green Lantern, and Batman.

In Tranquility, the entire area is turned into a war zone as the empowered townspeople battle the Justice Society. Fortunately, Grifter and the Wildcats have arrived to assist the townspeople. Wetworks, with help from the Vampire Nation, is dispatched to the Aegean where they face an army of Amazons.

Back at Halo's headquarters, Zealot and The Authority engages Superman, Green Lantern, and Batman. Zealot faces off with Batman and the two enter into a furious battle in which Zealot kills Batman. Superman quickly stops fighting and, in his horror, rushes over to Batman. A wounded Zealot tells Superman that they fought fairly and acknowledges how Superman cares for her opponent, willingly allowing herself to be killed to avenge Batman. But Superman, coming to his senses from seeing his friend's death, refuses and tells Green Lantern to stop fighting as he then realizes that he and the League's actions goes against their moral judgment. Furthermore, they never even cared about Green Arrow's death in which Superman then questions as to why he and the other heroes are here. Superman is then contacted by J'onn J'onzz who answers that "Chimera wants this done." In which Superman then questions as to who Chimera is.

In Larkin, Arkansas the young teenager that was visited by Superman mutters in his sleep with the word "no".
