- We took ten minutes from you. That's all. We had to stop Dr. Light, and you would've stopped us. Then Light would've killed Sue -- and Ralph -- and god knows who else. So, what's more important to you, Batman? Your ten minutes? Or you friends?

Synopsis for "Crisis of Conscience, Part Two"
The JLA battles the Secret Society of Super-Villains in Gotham City, but before a clear winner can be shown Felix Faust teleports the Society elsewhere. In the Batcave, Batman tends to Catwoman (who was injured in the battle), but the rest of the League quickly catches up with him and confronts him about the mindwipes. They apologize, but retain that they did what they did because it was what they had to do. They argue, and Batman and Hawkman briefly come to blows. The issue unresolved, the League leaves when they realize that the Society will be after their families next. In the Watchtower, as J'onn tries to figure out who it was that restored the Society's minds, the culprit simply reveals himself: Despero.
