After nearly being defeated by the JSA, Aquarius uses the rod to blink Earth-2 out of existence, but not before several members protect themselves in an energy bubble using Fate's magicks and GL's ring's mystic energies. Red Tornado, meanwhile, has been sent to Earth-1 to the JLA to get help battling Aquarius. To be continued...
