Synopsis:
As Glorious Godfrey unleashes a final assault vs. the heroes in Washington, D.C. with a frenzied mob, they are stopped thanks to Robin (Jason Todd) appearing with young children, forming a human shield around the heroes. Godfrey slaps a child who refuses to move out of the mob's way, which then awakens the mob, and turns them vs. him. He retaliates using warhounds to attack everyone, with the heroes defending them successfully, but he steals Fate's helmet, and is defeated by it when he attempts to use its powers for his own purposes as he puts it on. Darkseid's plan fails.
