Synopsis for "Three of a Kind, Part 3: Death at the Top of the World"
It is the first day of the trial against Hatchet, Sonar and Heat Wave who sank a cruise ship, causing the death of about two dozen passengers. Flash, Green Lantern and Green Arrow were on the same cruiseship and now have to testify in the witness stand. Flash is first and basically identifies the three guilty mercenaries.
Bernhard Weinstein is the counsel of defense and one of the best in the business. Green Lantern and Flash are questioned by Mr. Weinstein and they talk about how Flash defeated Doctor Polaris by capturing him in a metal wrap and how they were not able to rescue all passengers of the cruiseship. As everybody is thinking that the three villains surely will be sentenced for their deeds, Mr. Weinstein pulls out secret documents which proof that Hatchet, Sonar and Heat Wave originally were part of a secret mission of the US military. Therefore, the judge has no alternative but to stop the trial and to hand the case over to a military court. But earlier, Flash did read thousands and thousands of pages of law books and is able to find a way to outsmart Mr. Weinstein.
In the end, the three heroes come together at Wally's house and tell Linda Park that the case of Hatchet, Sonar and Heat Wave will be heard in front of a national jury...

- According to Green Lantern and DA Toffler the 12th amendment allows Superheroes to testify without revealing their true identity. Since our 12th amendment revised presidential election, was submitted December 9, 1803, and ratified June 15, 1804 this means the amendments in their world don't follow those of the real world from 1804 on.
