Synopsis for "Injustice: Gods Among Us - Chapter 8"
Wonder Woman calls a meeting on the Justice League Watchtower. Diana opens with a memorandum to the members of the Justice League who perished in Metropolis. Nightwing and Raven share somber glances upon hearing this. Wonder Woman then reveals the kidnapping of Superman's adoptive parents and the message that Mirror Master left him. Diana makes a call to arms to the members of the Justice League to find his parents by any means necessary.
Cyborg appears as the first of the heroes to stand by Superman, commenting on how the world would have been "destroyed ten times over" if not for Kal-El. Diana tells Barry that Superman had said that Mirror Master was involved in the kidnapping. The Flash then asks Cyborg to set the teleporter to Central City, whereupon the Justice League confronts various members of The Rogues for information on the whereabouts of Mirror Master. Captain Cold tells Barry that Mirror Master was last seen in the World's End bar in Keystone City. Before leaving, Captain Cold tells The Flash to "go easy" on Mirror Master, and says heroes "weren't the only ones lost in Metropolis".
The Flash and Wonder Woman enter the bar; several villains are among the patrons including Cheetah and Man-Bat. Cheetah taunts Wonder Woman, even though the latter wants no trouble and advises her against it. The Flash confronts an illusion of Mirror Master, who then appears on the other side of the room. Raven appears behind him and chases him into another mirror; Wonder Woman captures him with her Lasso of Truth. Wonder Woman forces Mirror Master to reveal the location of the Kents. It is revealed to be Salar de Uyun in Bolivia, the world's largest natural mirror. Wonder Woman forces Mirror Master to take off his clothes as The Flash communicates this information to Superman.
In Bolivia, The Flash gives Superman the Mirror Belt and tells him that it's "the perfect hiding place" for his parents. Superman enters the mirror as the Flash affirms his faith in Superman that he will find his adoptive parents, because he's Superman.
Back in the White House, a presidential aide informs the President of the United States that their plan to thwart Superman had failed. The President then asks his aide to find another way to fight "an angrier Superman."
As he enters his office, Batman sneaks up from behind the President, commenting on his stupidity. Bruce says that he was acting on a hunch when the President says that the plan could not have been traced back to him. When the President makes a comment on how the Justice League wouldn't "dare touch [him]," Batman ridicules him for his naivety and that no one would ever look for his corpse on Saturn. Batman says that his plan failed, and in doing so fortified Superman's resolve and the other heroes behind his cause.
As Batman leaves the office, the President asks Batman how Superman could keep the power once he has it. "Power corrupts," he says. "Trust me. I know..."
