Synopsis for "Lost Souls"
Attempting to take initiative against Asmodel, the Heroes divide up into three teams. A group led by Wonder Woman, consisting of Zauriel, Raven, Supergirl, Mister Miracle and Sentinel travels to Heaven to attempt to convince Jim Corrigan to rebond with the Spectre entity. Superman leads a team down into Hell to restart the Hellfires consisting of Green Lantern, Firestorm The Atom, Zatanna, Faust, and Enchantress (possessed by Deadman). Batman and the rest of the Heroes stay in Manhattan to continue fighting the Demon onslaught.
In Hell, Superman's team fights Cerberus, and reaches the River Styx. Wonder Woman's team is unable to get Corrigan to leave Heaven, but Saint Michael redirects them to Purgatory, where he suggests they might be able to find more capable souls. There, they are offered assistance by a number of bygone heroes, most prominently Hal Jordan, the former Green Lantern.
