Synopsis for "Inspiration"
The Earth appears to have revolted against its inhabitants, and the Justice League surmises that Gaea, the Earth's essence, is not present. They soon discover that an Appellaxian is using the Earth as its battle form, and others are inhabiting statues and other monuments.
Reporter Tully Reed finds a girl on the streets, who is dazed and confused, unsure of who she is, and is determined to protect her amidst the chaos. As he does so, the Leaguers travel to the Appellaxian homeworld, where they discover that most of the Appellaxians repented of their warlike ways after their defeat at the hands of the original Justice League, and only the few reactionaries, led by one called Orkus, are attacking Earth. The other Appellaxians help the League to bring the reactionaries back to their home planet.
Back on Earth, the woman realizes who she is and the spirit of Gaea steps out from her dead body. She thanks Reed for protecting her and reminding her of humanity's inherent goodness, yet he still feels somewhat empty. After the Justice League return home, Gaia rewards Tully by putting a little of her essence into the body she had inhabited.
