Synopsis for "Three of a Kind, Part 1"
Green Lantern, Green Arrow and Flash meet in the Justice League Watchtower as they plan to board a cruiseship to go on vacation together - despite the still ongoing tension between Kyle and Wally. The three heroes hope to leave the hero business behind them and get to know each other better. Kyle still thinks alot about his ex-girlfriend Donna Troy, but Wally is more interested in Kyle's relationship with Jade. They do not know that in this exact moment Jade is sitting on the couch in Kyle's appartment and suddenly gets sucked into a vortex.
Both Kyle and Wally are impressed by the success Connor has with women. But to their surprise he tells them he only slept with a woman once, and that actually might have been a ghost. At the bar, the three heroes are confronted by three men and it does not take long until Wally recognizes Hatchet is one of them. Kyle, Wally and Connor put on their costumes and try to stop the three mercenaries from taking over the ship. But the fight ends quickly as Sonar threatens to sink the cruiseship and all passengers with it. The villains plan to set the ship on a new course to deliver their "package" which contains the dangerous Doctor Polaris...
