Appearing in "The Green Bullet"
Synopsis for "The Green Bullet"
In the early days of the Justice League, Jim Gordon calls Batman to the Gotham City docks where a dead body appears to have been mutilated by a metahuman, possibly Superman. In the decendant's pocket is a green bullet evidently made of Kryptonite. Batman searches for clues and ends up calling Superman to his city where the two talk and Superman explains that he has taken a vow to never kill. Batman reveals that the bullet is a very elaborate fake but not true Kryptonite. The duo set out to stop whomever is framing him and find Intergang with some advanced LexCorp body armor in a nearby warehouse that allows humans to mimic several of the Krytonian's powers. Batman pays a visit to Lex Luthor and warns him that the League protects their own.

The team debates the best way to solve the problem but Guy objects to killing him: the head injury has made him a gentle and kind soul. Beetle finally devises a teleportation device that will trap the mouse in a special tube but he forgets to take into account the distorting effects teleportation has and ends up magnifying the mouse into a seven-foot long behemoth who wrecks their home.

Appearing in "Revelations"
- Treasure hunters
Synopsis for "Revelations"
In the depths of the Pacific Ocean, Aquaman calls for assistance and Wonder Woman answers: treasure hunters have gotten their submersible trapped in an old Atlantean maze and risked their lives for what turns out to be fool's gold. The straightforward rescue clearly rankles him and when Diana asks why, it's because Aquaman is questioning his place in the League. His is frustrated spliting his resources between being King of Atlantis and vigilante and he is also deeply attracted to his colleague—he has accidentally wrapped himself in the Lasso of Truth and confessed his feelings. The two don't have time to discuss the revelation before rival fortune hunters come to attack the first group. The heroes have to save all of the surface dwellers from drowning but Diana manages to give her fellow hero an affectionate touch and mild bruise to his ego before they do.
