Synopsis for "Power And Glory"
In the future, we see an injured and bleeding Superman standing over rubble. Looking out to the sky he talks to an unknown entity who claims it is all too late and destroys Earth, sending Superman into space where he is quickly teleported through time. Back in Metropolis, Clark Kent is sent a letter that invites him to the Infinity Corporation Building, yet has a lead Superman insignia.
At The Maw, a man transfers a prisoner in a pod, using mind-control to trick the guards. He leaves via helicopter. Superman is now at the Infinity Corporation being shown around by Alexis Martin. Superman comes across a group of large blue pillars that bring a dead Superman. Demanding answers, he discovers that Vincent, a scientist working with the Stones of Forever, is trying to save Superman's life.
Later we see the rest of the League meeting up at the a powerplant. There the prison transport that contains Parasite, is released. He quickly takes out Green Lantern and The Flash, later subduing Wonder Woman who teleports to somewhere unknown.
Back at the Infinity Corporation, Vincent claims that the Stones of Forever talk to him and "have a flexible relationship with time." He explains that over 60 Supermen have landed here in time, all dead. Vincent then shows Superman the powerplant where Parasite and the Justice League are. Superman, vowing to come back for answers, leaves the Infinity building to help his friends. At this time, Parasite has absorbed so much energy, he has become of massive size. Using the powerplant, Batman and Cyborg drain Parasite of his power, but not before Flash runs into Green Lantern, whose ring is sending him back to Oa. Both disappear. Cyborg, Superman and Batman boomtube to New York to the Infinity Corporation, only to realize that all there is is an empty lot. Upon looking up into the sky, they see the Kryptonian god Rao, asking the people of Earth to not be afraid and that he is here to save them.
