Synopsis for "The Enemies Among Us, Part 1"
Batman hits the heavy bag as he ponders the events of the evening. While at a social function Bruce couldn't shake the feeling that something wasn't right and the feeling wouldn't let up no matter how hard he hit the bag. Alfred announces the arrival of J'onn J'onzz, who accuses Bruce of being an affront to justice and quickly turns violent and attacks both Alfred and Batman.
After the attack, Batman meets with Superman in the Secret Sanctuary and tells him of J'onn's behavior. Their discussion of the attack and the feeling that Batman got at the party is interrupted by a distress call from Gotham. Superman assists in getting Batman back to his city and they find Titano rampaging through Gotham. Superman is weakened by the giant's Kryptonite vision and is taken aback when the creature tells him to let Batman die. After knocking the monster back Superman watches in horror as Batman's aircraft crashes. Batman quickly reveals that he escaped the crash and the two further discuss J'onn's erratic behavior and powers.
In the distance, the two heroes spot the mass evacuation of the Gotham Aquarium. Superman rushes in leaving Batman to deal with crowd control. Suddenly the Parasite attacks and informs the Man of Steel that if he helps Batman then he dies too. Moments later Batman rushes in and comes to the conclusion that whatever they are facing it isn't J'onn. After the creature assumes the form of Dr. Phosphorus Batman demands to know what it wants. The supposed Phosphorus claims it wants to be acknowledged. It reaches out its phosphorus covered hands towards Batman but Superman pokes a hole in one of the tanks which lets hundred of gallons of water to spill into the room.
The creature disappears and the two leave the Aquarium. Superman believes that it must have changed its form again, which means it could be anywhere.
