Synopsis for "The Illusion of Death"
In Atlantis, Zatanna and Constantine discover Raven has run away and is heading to Russia to save her father. They decide to go after her.
As passing over a Russian forest, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy find out about their stowaway when Raven saves them from a missile. Then Raven tells how Trigon, a Perchta -a German mountain spirit- came upon her mother, who fell in love with him. The Joker's Daughter learned of Raven and with the aid of Killer Frost destroyed Raven's village and took her away. Now she's heading to St. Petersburg, hoping to find some survivors of her human family and hopefully her father. Harley and Ivy promise to help.
They're shot down by another missile. Ivy commands the firs to cushion their landing. Wandering around the forest they stumble upon a traveling circus under attack from Nazi troops supported by all manner of European folk monsters. They're led by Captain Cold, whom Raven recognizes as a servant of Killer Frost. Among the legendary creatures forcefully recruited by the Nazis, there're German mountain demons, like Raven's father.
The German troops retreat, and Harley comes upon two new allies: Lois Lane and Reaper.
As riding a train across the Caucasus Mountains, Supergirl somehow foresees it's about to be derailed. Acting quickly, Supergirl saves the train and its passengers. However, a German spy detonates a hand-grenade to try to stop her. Supergirl is hurt and thrown out of the train. Lex Luthor checks on her and slips in her clothes a lead box containing a kryptonite dagger, stating she'll need it to fight her true enemy. Exhausted, Kara loses consciousness thinking of her sister Kortni, her friend Steve Trevor and her mother.
