Synopsis for "Injustice: Gods Among Us - Chapter 22"
Hawkgirl, having been replaced by J'onn J'onzz but disguised as the former, enters the Watchtower and tells the gathered Justice League members that Batman let her go, but with a message. He wants them to "stop working for the world and start working with it." Barry and Billy agree with her, saying they need to slow down and stop reacting to events and, instead, try to prevent them. Diana disagrees, saying they have brought "real peace" to the world. Barry counters with what the League did to Atlantis and Galaxor.
The argument continues with Shazam and Flash still opposed to Superman's and Wonder Woman's recent actions. Robin intervenes, saying this is exactly what Batman would want to happen: infighting and arguing among the Justice League members in order to create a rift between them and perhaps sever ties among them. Even though Hawkgirl tries to defend what she said, Lex Luthor quells the argument for good. He proposes a public announcement of the global ceasefire and an appearance, by Superman, to calm people's fears and doubts. The other League members agree, with Billy commenting on how he does not want "want to see us get turned into something we despise."
On Apokolips, Kalibak confronts his father, Darkseid, in regards to Earth's newly announced ceasefire. A voice of someone being tortured is heard in the background as Darkseid discusses his prisoner and the fate of Earth with Kalibak. Darkseid comments on how the prisoner "cannot be killed" and that no one would ever come to save him. He instructs Kalibak to kill Superman and take the Earth, and to leave him with the Black Racer. "Leave me to torture death," he comments, as the Black Racer is seen suspended from the ceiling by various torture devices.
Later, in Paris, the speech is being delivered by Kal and Lex. Kal discusses the actions him and the Justice League have taken, and the perception that people have on them. Harley Quinn is seen hiding in the sewer, and Batman, Catwoman and Alfred are seen in the Batcave, watching Superman's broadcast. Kal justifies his actions, saying he did not want the people of Earth to suffer any longer.
Kal admits that some of his actions were "extreme," but that they saved countless lives from war and destruction. His message was that he wants the people of Earth to be safe and that their lives are important to the Justice League.
A Boom Tube is then activated, delivering countless demons from Apokolips to Paris. Many people are killed as Superman is blasted by Kalibak. Kalibak simply says "I've heard you don't believe in fighting anymore, Kryptonian." Superman's enraged face is seen as he stands to fight the demigod from Apokolips.
