Synopsis for "Event Leviathan"
Batman skulks around the ruins of the former A.R.G.U.S. base, he soon finds Lois Lane pointing a Kryptionian pistol at him. Lois explains that Superman is preoccupied in space hence Lois was sent to investigate. Over one day, Leviathan had led a war against the other secret agencies - they destroyed A.R.G.U.S, the D.E.O., Task Force X, Spyral, Kobra and other secret organisations and leaving no trace. Lois expresses how her father was hospitalised, how Clark was captured by Talia al Ghul and how Amanda Waller has been kidnapped.
Batman warns Lois that these attacks seem to be centred around her - attacking her husband and father. As he turns his flashlight around the room he spots a single survivor of the disaster, Col. Steve Trevor. He reveals that only 42 minutes prior he was walking through the Odyssey talking to Doctor Strand, trying to convince her to evacuate the building but at that moment Leviathan arrived starting the detonation timer. Steve is enveloped into a bubble while he shouts for Dr. Strand to run but it is too late - the building is razed by a spectacular explosion which erupts into the skies leaving only Steve Trevor unharmed in the debris below.
The three try to discover who was behind the attacks, they rule out Talia and Steve rationalises that he survived to be a scapegoat, to become Leviathan but just as quickly he changes his mind, now believing Lois to be "Leviathan" - seemingly acting out against her close family, when in reality the villains are plotting with no interruption.
Mid-discussion Steve snaps, he raises his pistol and shoots Lois before being shot himself - an arrow soars down and tases Steve. Green Arrow stands off in the distance prepared, but Steve remains incapacitated. Lois, Batman and Green Arrow decide that they need to start investigations immediately - they decide to create a team of the best detectives - however they do not notice the shadowed figure watching over them.
Elsewhere, Doctor Strand wakes up with someone quoting her own work back at her, work where she proposed true equality, and in that moment she looks up to see Leviathan stood before her inviting her.
