Synopsis for "Crime and Punishment"
Hourman splits his power into 1/15. The JSA fight him across time. One-on-one, each member fights Extant in a different time period. Slowly, they each begin to win as Extant can't keep up his omnipresence while separated. As Extant weakens, Atom Smasher plucks the Worlogog from Extant's body.
Everything returns to how it was before Extant changed the Time stream. As time begins healing itself, Sylvester Pemberton disappears. Distracted, Extant attempts to jump out of time to escape. Hourman freezes, failing to stop him. When Metron wants to go after him, Atom-Smasher proposes they replace his mom in the plane crash with Extant by using the Worlogog.
