Synopsis for "The Villain's Journey: Prologue"
In Baltimore, Maryland, a multitude of horrible purple monsters attack the crowd screaming "Go away!". Colonel Steve Trevor and his soldiers attempt to stop the flux of creatures by shooting them. Suddenly, the Justice League emerge from a Boom Tube to calm down the people. The Justice League kill most of the monsters and then discuss about their main target. His name is Samuel Street and he was infected by the "Spore" virus while delivering it to the A.R.G.U.S.. An unknown intruder attacked the professor when he had entered the Black Room to steal the Orb of Ra. The result is the professor became infected with the spore virus. After a short discussion, the group finds the house where Spore is hidden with is ex-wife he doesn't want to leave. As a team, they defeat the monster with no problems.
An hour later, colonel Steve Trevor holds a conference about what had happened. The journalists show their enthusiasm for the Justice League asking why superheroes don't take control of all the institutions. Trevor gets angry as he feels useless, getting to assault a very insisting one. After this, he's obliged to take part in the Congress reunion. The Congress want to know more about the team, but he doesn't reveal anything stating that they have no more secrets than the Congress, so it's good for them not to reveal anything.
Later, Trevor does a video-call with the Justice League as he wants to speak to his beloved Wonder Woman. The other members of the team keep on interrupt them complaining about their problems. Trevor, upset, closes the call. Etta asks why he didn't tell her that he loved her, to which he responds that in a way he already did.
Somewhere else David Graves writes that he was wrong about superheroes, they must die and the key to kill them is Steve Trevor himself.
