Synopsis for "Sepulkore"
From the Ghost Sector, Darkseid watches Apex Lex Luthor and Brainiac on Earth discussing Luthor's offer.. Brainiac assures Luthor that Darkseid is not a threat, as Brainiac had bottled the components of Sepulkore on Colu. They now were in the Ghost Sector, which was inaccessible. But Luthor knows that Darkseid is far stronger and smarter than Brainiac believes.
In the Ghost Sector, Darkseid closes the viewer, amused at the antics of these two "children". He returns to the Justice League Odyssey, who wait to hear his intentions. The creation of Sepulkore sounds almost magical, with an Antibaryonic Force encircling the Ghost Sector and separating it from the Multiversal reality and its destruction.
Darkseid returns to his work, and Jessica Cruz reminds the others of their mission — to hi-jack Sepulkore and save the Multiverse. But Victor is unsure if they can - or more specifically if he can control the sixty relics and their flood of data. As the discussion continues, Vic PINGS, and resolves to do reconnaissance on Darkseid.
Cyborg interupts, and Darkseid is unusually forthcoming, introducing Vic to the data flow. And Cyborg begins to comprehend it — and PING!. Victor calls to the others and launches an ill-fated attack on Darkseid, but is told the truth. He is a machine pretending to be a man — not the other way around — and has been destined to initiate Sepulkore. He PINGS and PINGS, and is becoming something else, as Jessica drives the Skull Ship directly into Darkseid.
Stepping out of the ship, she is thrown to the ground by the newest New God - Cyborg, and he PINGS.
