Synopsis for "Futures End - Chapter 16"
In Washington, DC, two thugs attempt to purchase a forged ID card, and are surprised when it turns out it was sting operation by Stormguard. He recognizes one of the thugs' weapons as American Military tech, and tries to reason with him, but the man complains that he needs the ID card in order to get a job, given his PTSD.

Meanwhile, on Cadmus Island, King Faraday discovers Mister Miracle sneaking out of his cell, and wonders why Scott would allow himself to be caught in this way. Afterward, Faraday confronts Fifty Sue about the fact that she didn't tell him about the numerous stealth OMACs on the island. Lana, one of the Earth 2 scientists that Sue kidnapped from the holding area admits that she has seen these OMACS, and Faraday suspects the island's systems may have been corrupted. He orders Slade Wilson to partner with Sue and Cole Cash to get to the bottom of it, to the delight of Sue, who fancies them all a family.
At Terrifitech, Michael Holt is under pressure to manufacture enough uSpheres to meet demand on the release date. Stressed, he unwinds by talking it out with the artificial intelligence in his building, who promises that it will arrive on Earth soon, to converse with Michael - though it has seen more gods be born and die than he would believe.
In Metropolis, Lois Lane speeds to the city's east side, hoping to get past a police barrier with the promise of information for Commissioner Sawyer. She hurries past the barrier, only to find Rampage wreaking havoc outside S.T.A.R. Labs. Fortunately, Superman arrives on the scene, but his attempts to reason with her go poorly.
Meanwhile, in the Huron System, Frankenstein tells his companions of the dream of the future he had - his first dream in nearly two-hundred years. They are more concerned about getting out of the prison they were placed in, but before they can form a plan, The Engineer, their jailer, returns. She explains that the master system that upgraded her is demanding an audience. In fact, the planet they thought they were on is not a planet. It is the ship of their master, and that master is the Brainiac program.
