Synopsis for "New Blood"

After the disappearance of the Justice League, a month passes. During this time, Chicago is attacked by the extortionist called Plague, Nebraska suffers a crippling drought, Metropolis suffers a terrible crime wave, London is attacked by demons, a rock creature attacks an alien settlement, and a sandstorm monster starts attacking people around the Egyptian pyramids. All of these result in emergency calls to the Watchtower, and all the calls are logged by the computer. After a month, the computer activates deep command Omega Gabriel Alpha: to replace the Justice League with the help of a mysterious assistant.

On Atlantis, Atom, Tempest, and Zatanna are working on the portal, attempting to re-open it. After they are successful, the Atom gets depressed, noting that, despite knowing next to nothing of the other side of the portal, they still sent the JLA in. Zatanna attempts to be optimistic, but a collection of flying orbs break through the atmosphere above them, and one heads for the Atom. Telling Zatanna to take a break from examining the portal to gather info on magical energies on Atlantis which may have interfered; he has been "drafted".

Around the world, others are being contacted by the orbs: Green Arrow, Jason Blood, Hawkgirl, Firestorm, the supervillain Major Disaster, and an unknown woman named Faith. Captain Marvel is also offered the position, but he declines the offer.

On Atlantis, Zatanna takes the Atom's advice, calling on the magics to "reveal themselves." She is suddenly attacked by a giant earthen hand.

In the Watchtower, the draftees are being briefed by a video that Batman had made for this eventuality. Green Arrow doesn't quite take it seriously, until the recording asks him to shut up - proving that Batman had truly prepared for anything. The recording then introduces them to the mysterious assistant - Nightwing, the man Batman refers to as "the only one I could have picked to lead you."
