Synopsis for "Chapter Twenty Three"

Catwoman of Earth-19 hurls Harbinger's orb to save herself from the Nightmare Metallos, causing an explosion. After helping her get up, Batman tells Luthor that the Monitor may have more such orbs and tells him to come along, while also instructing Green Lantern to hold off their enemies. Robin mocks him for leaving them with the job of fighting, but Lantern states they will come out victorious. Robin however expresses that he very much doubts it and points to Brainiac ordering his constructs to kill everyone, so he could conquer the multiverse. Batman and Luthor soon arrive inside the Axis Tower and find the Monitor along with the Flash and Atomic Wonder Woman. They however realize he's in a weakened condition, but Flash states that they don't have time to explain.

Batman tells Nix Uotan that the Brainiac of Earth-43 is trying to conquer Nil and their forces are not enough, which is why they need the Monitor technology defending the world. Flash tells Batman that he's shut them down and upon being questioned, Nix states that Brainiac has hacked into them and used them to assault him, with most of his 51 other duplicates being killed by them. Lex states that the technology is clearly quite destructive as demonstrated by Harbinger's orb and they need to regain control somehow. Batman then asks the Monitor about the Eternal Key, but he warns the enemy has corrupted it. Lex states that they could use it to take control of Nil's defense systems, but it needs to be shielded from Brainiac's control.

As Lex states that Brainiac's forces aren't experienced with magic, Batman tells Flash to get their universe's Zatanna from the battlefield, while Lex asks the Monitor to take him to the control center of the systems. Outside the tower, Supergirl states that they must retreat, but Robin replies there is nowhere to go. Hal tells them to keep fighting and upon seeing Flash, asks what they have learnt. Flash replies that they're preparing a way to take the enemy forces down, but he needs Zatanna for now. As he runs off with her, Catwoman and Zod state they're doomed, but Mecha Superman assures that they will survive. Flash brings Zatanna into the Axis Tower and she gets told by Batman that they need her to create a magical shield around the Eternal Key, so Brainiac can't control it. Meanwhile as Luthor installs thee key, he feels the power surging through it and states he doesn't want the feeling to end.
