Synopsis for "Convergence"
Ibn al-Xuffasch tells his story to his therapist about events that took place prior to his visit. It started when he collected the pieces of remains from Superman's nemesis Brainiac and reprogrammed one of Superman's robots to accept Brainiac's consciousness. He also brought his grandfather Ra's al-Ghul back to life using the Lazarus Pit and turned Lex Luthor into an infant, promising that his adult form will be restored if he does what he's told to do. Soon Ibn reveals his plan to the three villains, knowing that they were the most brilliant and resourceful minds in human history: they were to find a way to save this reality from nonexistence within sixty minutes. Luthor and Brainiac developed an invention called the Chronoslip that would allow whoever was inside it to be protected from whatever changes happen to reality. Instead of entering the device, Ibn pressed a button on a remote that not only caused Brainiac to seize Luthor, but also caused him to overload so that he would destroy both himself and Luthor. Ibn knew that the two would double-cross him and so had that feature programmed into Brainiac for that purpose. Then he dueled with his grandfather Ra's al-Ghul (whom in a flashback sequence was killed before young Ibn had a chance to do so) on top of a giant dinosaur in the Batcave, with Ra's telling Ibn the reason the young man chose the Batcave of all the places he could have gone to is that he had a secret desire to become Batman. Ibn watched his grandfather die as his sword stroke struck Ra's and caused him to fall. After the therapy session ends, Ibn rejoins with his lover Mari (Nightstar) when they are both visited by Hunter the Linear Man.
