Synopsis for "Crisis"

Examining a Legion ring that once belonged to Ferro Lad, Doctor Manhattan is confronted by most of Earth's superheroes, who have tracked the energy spike from the Moscow explosion to Mars. Guy Gardner leads everyone in attacking Manhattan after Martian Manhunter broadcasts Manhattan's vision of his future encounter with Superman. Manhattan transports Firestorm seven years into the past, where Ronnie learns that Martin Stein deliberately caused the Firestorm experiment in order to learn more about metahumans. During the fight, Doctor Manhattan dissects Guy Gardner's power ring and analyzes the magic attacks used by the Justice League Dark. Despite Captain Atom disintegrating Manhattan, he reforms himself and takes out all the heroes in an instant. At the Hall of Justice, Lois watches over a recovering Superman while protesters have gathered outside following the events in Moscow. Lex Luthor confronts Lois and reveals he sent her the flash drive as proof that someone is undermining all of creation, mentioning Wally West's history as an example. Wonder Woman comes out of hiding to address the United Nations, hoping to defuse the metahuman arms race. However, the summit is interrupted by Black Adam, Creeper, and Giganta, who take advantage of the absence of the other superheroes to attack the UN.

Stein has written a file about Firestorm, mentioning that he founded the Department of Metahuman Affairs to help other metahumans like his son, who died because he couldn't control his metagene.
