Synopsis for "Trial by Fire (Part V of VI)"

Things go from bad to worse for the League, as Fernus, the Burning Martian sets people against their loved ones, while simultaneously unleashing nuclear weapons in an attempt to cause fiery suffering which will allow him to spawn, much to Scorch's horror. Manitou Raven is able to make contact with the Martian Manhunter's soul, a soul which has been dominated by the being called Fernus - with the help of the Atom and Major Disaster, the Martian Manhunter starts to fight back. Batman fails in his attempt to reach Plastic Man, but the pliable paladin's son persuades him that he must return to his heroic life. As the League fall to Fernus in Chongjin, Korea, Plastic Man arrives on the scene, but Fernus keeps everyone distracted long enough for a warhead to detonate in the city.
