Synopsis for "Moving Day"
Now approved by the United Nations, the Justice League International moved from their Secret Sanctuary to three embassies in Manhattan, Moscow, and Paris. Jack Ryder takes this as an opportunity to whip up more fear on his Hot Seat program.
Captain Atom, the Martian Manhunter, and Mr. Miracle, prepare the New York location but it has suffered from inferior craftsmanship, made worse by the efforts of the team. J'onn attempted to help the movers by carrying a heavy box up the stairs with his Martian strength, only to crash through the floor, which was unable to support the weight. Captain Atom tries to connect two dangling wires, giving himself an electrical jolt. On instinct, he launched an attack on the electrical system, frying it with a quantum energy blast. Finally, Mister Miracle landed the League's sharp new shuttle on—and through—the roof. His flying privileges were temporarily revoked by J'onn.
Batman, Guy Gardner, and Rocket Red #7 head to the Moscow embassy, where the guards try to turn away Guy as an enemy of the state. Once they enter, Batman finds it under surveillance with bugs planted everywhere, presumably by the embassy liaison Boris Razumihin.
In Paris, Beetle and Booster enjoyed a drink—and the leggy French scenery—in their civilian identities, until they both spied a dark-haired woman of incredible beauty. Booster bragged that he could easily have the attractive woman eating out of his hand, although Ted thought she was well out of his league. He approaches her and gets slapped after a few words. The rejection was so extravagant that Beetle could not stop laughing for hours and Black Canary was somewhat disappointed to have missed the show. Immediately after this, they meet their embassy liaison Catherine Cobert—the same woman Booster just unsuccessfully tried to pick up in his civilian identity.
All three groups reconvene in New York City where they get a message about a terrorist group in Germany.

Synopsis for "Old News"
While the League's transition to international status was a hopeful and positive event, the impact on the Global Guardians was quite the opposite: the UN cancels their charter and leaves The Dome empty. Jack O'Lantern is especially unwilling to accept this change and leaves in disgust. Tuatara is confused because he can't get his parking validated anymore.
