Synopsis for "Crisis Times Five Part One"

Hourman has warned the JLA that they will soon be in conflict with beings from the 5th Dimension. Reports of pink lightning in Keystone City begin to come in as both Flashes Wally West and Jay Garrick watch buildings getting twisted. The pink lightning very much looks like the pet Thunderbolt of former JSA member Johnny Thunder and Batman suggests that Thunderbolt also originates from the 5th Dimension.

Somewhere else, Zauriel learns that the Spectre got imprisoned in a rock with the size of a planet.

In Chicago, Triumph is trying to sell some items he took from the JLA trophy room when he left in order to pay his rent. Instead, the people he's trying to sell to try to kill him. In response, he lets a genie named Lkz out of a pen. Lkz tells Bill he can give him three wishes and Bill's first wish is to become Triumph again.

In Central City, the bank building comes to life and starts smashing things.
