Synopsis for "Seconds to Go"
In Egypt, Green Lantern and the Flash arrive to stop Goraiko, who has been causing earthquakes by jumping from city to city. As John stabilizes a crumbling building, The Master appears, and uses his powers to turn John yellow, and temporarily restore the weakness to the color in his Power Ring. As Lantern falls, Flash creates a cyclone with his arm, covering John in soot, and propelling him upwards, where he knocks out the Master.
Above Superbia, Wonder Woman plans to disable the flying city, while Aquaman is tasked with awaking Goraiko's operator. As Diana arrives on the station, she is confronted by Vixen and Fleur-de-Lis, who attack her.
With Batman tied up, Gorilla Grodd explains his plan to rule the world and create a billion clones of himself. Just as he prepares to eat the hero, Batman is freed by the astral body of Warmaker One, who had escaped after Grodd destroyed his robotic body. Batman quickly incapacitates Grodd and ties him up, but not before he is cornered by Knight and Jack O'Lantern.
As military forces approach Superbia, Superman attacks Neh-Buh-Loh, while Wonder Woman and Aquaman fend off a group of mind controlled heroes. Diana is able to wrap her lasso around Tasmanian Devil, allowing him to break free of the Sheeda's control.
Batman pins Knight to the ground, and with the help from Squire, succeeds in freeing him as well.
Wonder Woman disables Superbia's core, and J'onn reforms out of the volcano and rushes to stop Goraiko. However, Aquaman is able to awaken Goraiko's operator before he could do anymore damage.
As Superman gains the upper hand against Neh-Buh-Loh, the villain reveals that he is the adult version of Qwewq from the future and the seed planted in him by Black Death turned him evil. Neh-Buh-Loh teleports away, stating that the next time he comes, evil will prevail.
Grodd and his cronies are captured and sentenced by the international community to imprisonment in the Phantom Zone.
Due to their failure in dealing with Grodd, Superman tasks the Ultramarine Corps with safeguarding the infant universe of Qwewq, and attempting to prevent it from becoming evil in the future.
As the League booms away, the Corps prepares for their next adventure, and enters the doomed universe.
