Synopsis for Justice League: "Justice League, Part Six"
This story is reprinted from Justice League (Volume 2) #6.
In the middle of the parademon assault, a writer named David is trying to save his family, wishing for some help. His prayer is seemingly answered by a set of green fireworks on the horizon. The fireworks are part of the Justice League's plan to fight Darkseid.
On Apokilips, Bruce Wayne sneaks through the building he is in, finding a pair of superbeings discussing the invasion of the Multiverse in search of Darkseid's daughter, who was apparently kidnapped. The superbeings have Superman tied down before them, and they plan to clone him as part of the next generation of parademons.
On Earth, Cyborg uses his new machinery to taap into he Mother Box network. By saying the word, he is able to suddenly overload the system, caussing teeleport holes to appear all over the area - and on Apokilips. This shocks the two beings torturing Superman, and Batman uses the moment to free Superman, before the two escape back to Earth through the Boom Tubes. They try to trap Darkseid on the other side of a Boom Tube, but he grabs Superman. With seconds to spare, Cyborg works out how to shut down the network, seemingly killing Darkseid. The world is saved.
In the immediate aftermath, a crowd gathers around. The group thinks they are to be stoned, but instead they are cheered, hailed as the world's greatest superhumans. Writing after the fact, Graves acknowledges the wording was off. The group were the world's greatest super heroes. At a subsequent awards ceremony, the U.S. President gives a speech about how this team of heroes saved the world. Green Lantern is about to break ranks and say it was a one-time deal, but Batman stops him, pointing out that official sanction will get the GCPD off his back, the Air Force off Green Lantern's and the Army off Superman's. The President receives a message from an aide, to say there has been a disaster, and the group is needed. The Flash announces that they have a name, and tells the President to call them the "Super Seven." The rest of the team hates this.
A writer named David Graves writes a book about them later, coining the term "super heroes." In his book, Graves calls this team the "Justice League." The book is titled "Gods Among Us" and the cover depicts them fighting a starfish-monster.
In London, a man with the shadow of a devil meets a man with glowing blue eyes. They discuss the fact that since the Justice League started, similar beings have become active: Green Arrow, Hawkman, Zatanna. The second man muses that if these are super heroes, then people like himself would be called super villains. As he lights a cigarette, we see he has a monstrous-looking lapel pin.

Synopsis for The Flash: "Best Served Cold"
This story is reprinted from The Flash (Volume 4) #6.
Barry Allen and Patty Spivot make their way back to Central City after taking a weekend for themselves, away from all of the drama that filled their lives over the last week. Patty isn't paying much attention to Barry, as she is reading a cold case file that she brought, knowing that the sole witness for the case lived in the town they had been in. Her reading has not gone unnoticed, and Barry remarked that he would prefer that his girlfriend let him join in on the crime-solving fun. The word catches Patty's attention, and she confirms that she is happy to put a label on their relationship, finally.
Patty believes that the cold case is a murder according to evidence and a witness' testimony, but the file reads like a simple abduction. Barry remembers that Iris West once did an exposé on the family involved, and Patty strong-arms him into arranging a meeting with her.
Later that night, Barry visits his friend, Dr. Darwin Elias. Elias has determined that whenever Flash uses the Speed Force, his energy buildup is creating wormholes that tear at the fabric of space and time. As such, he has created special energy output gauge that will provide audio reports into Flash's earpieces with warnings against going too fast. The gauge will measure the incremental increases in energy output. When the output exceeds 80%, it is reaching a level that poses a danger of causing rifts. In order to discharge this energy, Elias has created a massive treadmill. When the Flash runs on it, it will collect the energy surplus, and turn it into power for the whole city, in the aftermath of the EMP blast.
The next morning, Leonard Snart, also known as Captain Cold, returns to the hospital with a laser that he's stolen in the hopes that the doctor there can use it to help destroy the brain tumour that is killing his sister Lisa. However, with the power out from the EMP blast, there is not enough energy to properly operate the laser. Snart warns that if his sister dies, he will destroy the hospital. The doctor can do nothing but make excuses, as since the Flash caused the EMP blast, the hospital has been set back 40 years in terms of treatments. He advises Snart that the best he can do is spend what little time there is left with his sister. Leaning over his sleeping sister's body, Leonard Snart vows that the Flash will pay for what he did.
At a restaurant located on a boat in the harbour, Barry and Patty meet with Iris over lunch. Iris concedes that the cold case was likely a murder, but in all honesty, there is not much about the case that makes sense. She hands Patty a copy of her research, adding that there are few remaining leads.
Changing the subject, Patty wonders why Iris changed her spin on her recent Flash story. Iris responds that her investigation didn't turn anything up. Even so, Patty thinks the Flash should stay out of police matters, but Iris thinks that the Flash needs some good publicity lately. Abruptly, Iris asks whether Barry and Patty are dating. Barry blushes, admitting that they have been dating for a few months, before excusing himself to the bathroom.
Meanwhile, Leonard Snart blames the Flash for ruining his life. He can't earn a living through crime because of the Flash; he can't keep his gang together because of the Flash, and now he can't save his sister because of the Flash. Angrily, he uses his newly developed power to emit cold straight from his hands to freeze the river between the Gem Cities, trapping the very boat that Barry and company are on within the ice.
Quickly, Barry dons his costume, recalling Captain Cold's persistence over the last five years. No matter how many times he'd put the man down, he would always come back for his next big score. And it was the score that mattered most to him, always. Snart had gathered together a team of like-minded criminals calling themselves the Rogues, and Flash had dealt with them has he had always dealt with Snart. Despite Captain Cold's commitment to the score, his sense of honour had always prevented him from using his freeze pistols for murder. Something is different now, though.
Not only has Captain Cold done away with the pistols, he is also surprisingly fast, and his determination suggests that this time he is out for blood. Meanwhile, Cold has got the boat teetering precariously on a tower of ice, with all of the passengers struggling to keep their balance. Barry tries to subdue Captain Cold, but with every move he makes, his energy output grows closer and closer to dangerous levels. On the boat, Iris struggles to help keep other passengers from falling to their deaths while Patty attempts to find Barry in the washroom. Suddenly, the ship cracks in two, and the two women are separated.
Desperately, Flash tries to buffer the inevitable fall of the section of boat to which Iris and the other passengers are clinging. He manages to get them to the ground safely, but at the cost of raising his energy output significantly. With renewed vigour, Flash returns his attention to Captain Cold, but the villain's new abilities are creating a field of cold that is slowing down Flash's molecules to the point where he can't land a punch - or dodge one. While Patty's section of the boat begins to teeter dangerously on ice tower cracking away beneath it, one of Captain Cold's ice-spears pierces through Flash's shoulder just as his energy output reaches 94%.
Afraid to do anything else, Flash is forced to watch as Patty and the boat crash into the ice below, and his energy output climbs toward 100%.

Synopsis for Aquaman: "Deserted!"
This story is reprinted from Aquaman (Volume 7) #6.
In the present, Mera is buying food for her dog. She asks the manager for help, and the manager begins to behave inappropriately with Mera. When the manager grabs her waist, Mera breaks his arm. Two security guards try to arrest her, but Mera defends her actions, saying that the manager was trying to hit on her. The guards ignore her, so Mera uses her water powers to defend herself.
The police comes to the scene, and the cops try to arrest her, but they receive a call about a man named Ryan Slayter causing trouble. Hearing about the situation about Slayter, Mera willingly surrenders, asking the cops to go where they need to go.
Mera is taken to the police car, and the officers drive to Slayter's home, where Slayter is holding his daughter at gunpoint. Watching the situation unfold, Mera breaks her handcuffs and gets out of the car. Mera tries to solve the problem by herself, but Slayter underestimates her. Mera uses her water powers to drain the water out of Slayer's body, causing him to dehydrate. When Slayter is about to die, his daughter begs Mera to stop. Mera is confused, saying that Slayter killed her mother, but the girl replies that he is still her father. Mera restore the man's back to normal and leaves, ignoring the police.
As she stands on rock on the shore, Mera remembers her time on Xebel. She asked her father why are they trying to kill Aquaman since he doesn't know the Xebel exist and he doesn't want the throne of Atlantis. Mera begged her father to stop, saying that Aquaman is noble. However, her father replied that Mera was a traitor, and traitors must die just like Aquaman. Mera says he will have to kill her, and her father remarks she will be alone like Aquaman.
As Mera finishes remembering her past, she is met by Jennifer, a worker at the store Mera visited earlier. Jennifer was being harassed by the manager before Mera arrived. She gives Mera a bag full of dog food. When Mera asks why, Jennifer replies she wants Mera to know that humans are not all bad, and Mera agrees.
Mera arrives home and feeds Aquadog, then Aquaman arrives and Mera says they should talk. Aquaman says that they can talk on the way to Stephen Shin's house, because they'll ask him who sank Atlantis.
