Synopsis for "Injustice: Gods Among Us - Chapter 20"
The Joker and Harley Quinn are seen in the midst of the Metropolis detonation. The narration says it has been one month since "a calculated act of madness took so many lives." No one has been in Metropolis since then, and nothing has been seen or heard from the city until today: a radio broadcast, saying only "I'm alive..." has been heard on radio stations and frequency broadcasts around what was left of Metropolis.
On the Watchtower, Cyborg comments that it's definitely coming from Metropolis, but it's highly likely to be a trap. Everyone else agrees, but Superman wants to at least investigate. Green Lantern and Wonder Woman agree to go with him, seeing as the remnant radiation will not affect them.
In the city, Superman sees "nothing but death." Hal traces the signal to under a large glass building. Kal lifts it up to reveal a large hole underneath. Diana and Kal enter it while Hal stands guard. The two see a large safe and a transmitter on the outside of it, explaining the radio signal. Hal attempts to convince the two to leave, but Superman still wants to go on. Diana grows uneasy for a second, thinking that they are being watched by something.
When Superman opens the safe, Lex Luthor is revealed to be inside of it. The two embrace, with Lex commenting he doesn't want to die from a super-hug having survived a nuclear bomb. Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern get Lex out of the city due to the lingering radiation.
In the Batcave, Batman talks to Martian Manhunter, who confirms Luthor's survival. The former makes a comment that if it had been anyone, it would have been Luthor. J'onn explains Luthor had someone on the payroll who was connected to the Speed Force. "Not someone on Flash's level, but still very fast," J'onn says. When Bruce asks what happened to the Speedster, J'onn says she tried to save other lives after securing Luthor, but that "She wasn't fast enough." J'onn also comments that Diana felt his presence while outside the safe.
In the Watchtower, Lex Luthor tells the League members that they need to "stop reacting and start planning" for events that occur, or will occur. When Diana questions Lex's loyalty and trust, he reveals that he knows the secret identities of all members of the League. Lex also reveals he has been protecting their loved ones and friends for a very long time.
