Synopsis for "Apotheosis: Glory Days, Part Four"
Citizen Steel comes to Power Girl's aid my laying the smackdown on Yum-Kimil's head but Yum-Kimil knocks Citizen Steel into the air and almost becomes a bug on the windshield of the JSA's jet plane. Atom Smasher tells Roxy to take control of the jet plane and have it land in La Cienega while he jumps Yum-Kimil from behind. Atom Smasher impacting entrance takes the gods by surprise and he starts engaging all four of them. Hourman gets Power Girl to safety while Stargirl and Judomaster deal with crowd control.
Unfortunately, the gods get the upper hand when Ah-Kin and Yum-Kimil restrain Atom Smasher while Nacon slashes at Al with his razor sharp claws. Just when all hope was lost, Cyclone appears from the distance and throws a gust of wind that blows the gods off their feet. Brainwave comes up with a radical idea that he thinks may work to stop the gods. Henry telepathically tells all of the JSA members to let go of something dear to them from their past. Henry figures the past is what creates us but its not what defines us and he wants to convey this message to the gods.
Henry sends his transmission to his siblings with all the JSA members open minded. The gods stop their assault and feel Henry's presence. The gods start seeing images from the minds of all the JSA members. In one image, Stargirl admits that she must let go of Atom Smasher and the feelings she once had for him. Henry tells his father that he is his own man now and that he must let the memory of his dead father go. Atom Smasher finally lets go of his nostalgia that Infinity Inc is no more. King Chimera finally tells Namita that he can't keep on loving a ghost and admits what's done is done. Power Girl bids farewell to her cousin Kal-L on Earth 2.
Henry can feel his message to his siblings is working. The gods feel the release of letting go of their sorrow and longings. Even the crowds who were seduced by the Izapa drug began to cry and their enthrallment to the gods started to diminish. The gods begin to feel their ties to the drug induced people has been severed and their strength begins to dwindle. The gods finally accept their faith was never true. The gods shrink to average size and Henry asks the gods to release their hold over his siblings. The gods tell Henry that his siblings have transcended into godhood and there is no going back which is what Henry conveyed in his message.
The gods agree to leave peacefully and decide to return to Parador. They intend to wipe out the corrupt military government and cartels thereby giving the people of Parador a chance to build a brighter future. Power Girl wasn't too happy that Henry allowed his godly siblings to fly off but Henry explains that Montez is the one responsible for driving his siblings mad with power which led to LA's near destruction. The team decides to take some much needed R & R in Malibu.
The team finds Citizen Steel who landed on a beach near Malibu. They engage in a volleyball game while Henry bids his farewells to Power Girl. Henry can sense that his siblings need his counsel in Parador. Atom Smasher inquires if Anna Fortune is a time traveler. Anna toys with Al about her age that she was 26 when she left the past but if she had aged naturally into the current point in time, she would be 187. Even though she mentally let go of Al, Stargirl looks at Anna and Atom Smasher with such contempt. As for Chimera and Cyclone, they walk along the coastline. Chimera apologizes for being reticent with Cyclone but he admits that's all in the past. Chimera hugs Cyclone and he can feel Namita's memory fading away. Henry stops by the condemned Stellar Studios to say goodbye before taking a plane back to Parador.
