Story

In one of the many universes consisting of the DC Multiverse, the Joker has tricked Superman into killing Lois Lane and their unborn child, simultaneously detonating a nuclear bomb in Metropolis. Out of pure anger, Superman rips open the Joker's chest in front of Batman, killing him, and subsequently conquering the world under a Regime government with him as dictator and nearly all of the heroes as his servants. Only Batman, Lex Luthor, Deathstroke, and a small band of rebels called the Insurgency are left to face Kal-El's rage, and in order to defeat him they are going to need more heroes - from an alternate Earth.

Prologue

The game opens on an image of Metropolis, ravaged by a nuclear detonation. Millions of people have died as a result. Gotham City Police Department has taken The Joker, the madman responsible, into custody. He is being interrogated by Batman until Superman breaks through the wall, ordering Bruce to "get away from him!" Kal-El approaches the Joker, shoves the table in front of him aside, and slams him on a wall. Superman accuses the Joker of drugging him and making him kill Lois Lane and his unborn son. Joker mockingly references Krypton and Metropolis, commenting on how his loved ones "tend to blow up". Kal throws Joker to the opposite wall. He stands up and asks Kal if he truly thinks he can have a family, and if locking Joker up can truly reform him. When Joker tells Superman and Bruce to go away, Kal takes Joker by the neck, intending to choke him. When Bruce tries to stop Kal, the latter shoves the former away. Joker asks Superman if he can try not to kill his next family just before Kal impales the Joker with his arm, killing him.
