Synopsis for "Justice League, Part Two"
This story is reprinted from Justice League (Volume 2) #2.
At the crime lab of the Central City Police Department, Barry Allen is arguing with Director Singh because the latter ordered him to leave a case. The reason is because their chief wants them all working on the "Flash case": They must find out everything about the vigilante named "the Flash", including his secret identity. Of course, the CCPD is unaware that Barry Allen is the Flash.
Back at the fight between Superman and Batman, the Man of Steel points out that Batman's utility belt is empty, leaving him without any means of defense against him, as nothing Batman used so far on him has worked. Superman charges against Batman and crushes him against a wall. He then starts interrogating the Dark Knight, demanding to know where the mysterious boxes that have been appearing over the last few days come from and what are they for. Green Lantern gets up while people run away from him and gets ready for a second chance against Superman. While the latter is choking Batman, Green Lantern attacks Superman, while Batman tries to stop them both. Lantern captures Superman in chains made by his ring, but Superman points out the absurdity of doing so and easily frees himself by breaking them. He then starts attacking both Green Lantern and Batman, constantly punching Green Lantern's constructs. After Lantern creates a shield construct to protect himself and Batman, he gets the idea of calling a friend who may be faster than Superman: Barry Allen, the Flash. Barry gets surprised by the fact that Hal is with Batman and is fighting Superman. At first Barry refuses to help Hal, since the last time Green Lantern and the Flash were seen together they destroyed the Museum of Natural History while stopping Gorilla Grodd. Since the situation against Superman is getting critical with Lantern's shield giving way, Barry is convinced to help Hal, gets on his Flash costume and starts attacking Superman. At first he only teases him by easily avoiding his attacks, until Superman manages to hit him.
Batman quickly intervenes and stops the fight, explaining to Superman that they had nothing to do with the invading Parademons, and Green Lantern and him were also attacked by them. While Batman explains that the reason why they looked for him was because he was also an alien and could better explain the nature of the boxes and the Parademons, the Flash starts cleaning up and repairing the site of the fight, but they get interrupted by the forces of the government, so they quickly go into hiding in the sewers, convincing Superman to go with them.
Meanwhile, in Detroit, at the S.T.A.R. Labs Super-Human study center, Silas Stone and his team are studying the mysterious box from Superman's battle earlier that morning. While doing so, Silas gets informed of the arrival of his son Victor, to which he reacts frustratingly annoyed. Victor explains to his annoyed father that he has great chances of lots of full scholarships. His father answers that he is already paying him his school, so he doesn't need a scholarship. While Victor tries to explain to his father how important sports are to him, Silas points out how pointless is to take interest in sports in a world full of super-humans that have abilities over the finest of regular humans, thus rendering any effort to be a great sportsman obsolete. Victor then wants to confirm whether his father really isn't going to come to one of his games, to which his father confirms. Meanwhile, the four heroes have hidden themselves at an abandoned printing press, the only safe place Superman knows at Metropolis. Green Lantern suggests to Flash that they better get rid of Batman and Superman, because they would only be a burden. Flash refuses because they need someone to help them figure out the nature of the boxes. While they are examining the box, both their own and the box at S.T.A.R. Labs start reacting strangely, opening a Boom Tube that teleports a swarm of Parademons in both places and start tearing Victor apart.
Appearing in "Think Fast"
- The Flash (Flashback and main story)
- Mob Rule
- Dr. Guerrero
Synopsis for "Think Fast"
This story is reprinted from The Flash (Volume 4) #2.
Seeing his old friend Manuel Lago trapped in the grips of hundreds of apparent clones of himself, The Flash gives them three seconds to release Manuel. Counting down, he fights his way through the many clones until he gets to his friend. However, they recuperate quickly, warning that they have reporter Iris West as a hostage, and Flash will have to wait until they and Manuel are safely away before they release her. Moments later, Flash receives a call from Iris, and then rushes to her location. After making sure she's okay, he rushes off again to meet a friend.
Flash visits Dr. Darwin Elias, a physicist. Dr. Elias hopes to perform some tests that will measure Flash's speed, and help him increase it. He has Flash run on a treadmill in order to get some read-outs, but after three seconds, the whole apparatus explodes. Even so, the readouts show that that the Flash is tapping into a force which he calls the Speed Force. Doing so, Flash can already reach speeds beyond the capabilities of Elias' equipment to measure. However, he notices that only a small percentage of Flash's brain is tapping into the Speed Force - which means that if he learns to think faster, the Flash can learn to run faster too. He just needs to find a way to trigger this kind of augmented cognition.
Barry stands on the roof of the Central City Police Department, trying to come up with a way to think faster. He is interrupted by Patty Spivot, who informs him that the corpse they found which looked like Manuel Lago apparently simply 'expired.' His cuts and abrasions simply healed post-mortem. Together, Barry and Patty conclude that the body was likely a clone made through the process of rapid cell regeneration.
As Patty explains that Manuel has a history with U.S. Intelligence, and that some files on him are missing, Barry suddenly realizes that he has begun thinking faster, processing all of the information around him at the same time. Even as Patty speaks, he receives a text from Iris without her noticing. He cuts their discussion short in order to make a deal with Iris.
Iris claims that she will reveal information about the police investigation into Manuel's apparent death in exchange for confirmation of the Flash's involvement. Barry will have none of it, revealing that Flash isn't responsible anyway. Suddenly, Barry's augmented cognition kicks in again. He perceives a series of factors which would lead to a robbery and a car accident. He can plan for every possible outcome, and fix everything without Iris even noticing.
Instead of becoming the Flash and intervening personally, Barry manages to narrow down the entire thing to making two changes: He removes an apple from a pile in a fruit market, leaves a dollar in the middle of the road, and hooks a toe-truck to the fender of a speeding car. He returns to Iris' side before she realizes he was gone. Moments later, events play out just as he planned: the thief runs out of the jeweler's store, the fruit market's pile of apples falls onto the sidewalk, tripping the crook and allowing the owner to subdue him; the speeding car is yanked back by the toe-truck just in time for a pedestrian to bend over to pick up the dollar, narrowly being missed by the flying car; and the speeder and his car wind up stuck in the back of a truck full of fertilizer.
Continuing on, Iris informs Barry that Manuel was a deep cover operative for the CIA, and was officially killed in action sixteen months ago. She managed to scrounge up an unofficial copy of his passport with which Barry can fill in the blanks. Barry thanks her, and hopes that she doesn't think he's taking advantage of their past relationship. Iris incredulously points out that it was only one date. She suggests that he make it up to her by asking her out again. Meanwhile, she has an interview with the most dangerous inmate at Iron Heights Prison.
Barry remembers how he first met Manuel. There had abeen a party, and both he and Manuel were standing around outside. Barry felt uncomfortable because he didn't know anyone there. Manuel introduced himself, and declared that they now knew each other, and could go into the party. Meanwhile, Barry served as his invite into the party.
Barry checks out one of the locations that was meant to be a military training facility, but all he finds is a pig farm. The farmer explains that it was levelled by the CIA, and they took everything except the pigs with them. Barry remembers how he once got a call from Manuel complaining of the smell of pigs, and how he wanted to get out of training. Before Barry could come to pick him up, Manuel was dragged away by soldiers.
Elsewhere, Manuel is kept captive by the multitude of clones calling themselves Mob Rule. The clones claim that using parts of him, they can forestall their impending deaths with the help of a Doctor Guerrero.
Meanwhile, Iris visits Iron Heights for her interview. At the Central City police lab, Patty discovers declassified documents on a defunct cloning project, Dr. Elias discovers an anomaly in Flash's brain scans, and Flash runs down the Gem City bridge as a plane flies overhead.
Dr. Guerrero activates a device which sets off an EMP device, which cuts power to the entirety of Central City. In the darkness, Iris is grabbed by someone in the prison, and Flash is forced to contend with a plane that is about to crash onto a crowded bridge.

Synopsis for "The Trench, Part Two"
This story is reprinted from Aquaman (Volume 7) #2.
At the Curry Lighthouse, Arthur and Mera are viewing pictures from Arthur's childhood. When they come across a picture of Arthur with his father and another man, a knock at the door from a police officer Wilson interrupts them. He tells them he's been seeking their help by stopping by all major lighthouses. The officer tells Arthur and Mera that monsters kidnapped everyone in the coast of Beachrock last night and they need his help to locate the kidnappers.
Wilson takes Aquaman and Mera to the crime scene, which is crowded by the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Navy. Aquaman uses his telepathy to look for any lifeforms in the ocean, but he is shocked to find there are none.
Scuba-divers find some kind of cocoon that they lift to the dock. Aquaman senses something alive in a nearby boat and tells everyone to stand back. Then, a group of Trench appear and attack Aquaman and Mera. Using her hydrokinesis, Mera prevents the Trench from reaching the civillians while Aquaman attacks them with his trident. However, Aquaman is breifly incapacitated by a Trench, who knocks the trident off him and proclaims that the "food", Aquaman, will be taken to the Trench.
