Synopsis
The Justice League and allies desperately search for Batman who has disappeared with a very dangerous weapon. Batman uses his "Bat family" to act as decoys to distract the League to give him time to escape. Kendra, Vandal Savage, and the Immortals discuss options to deal with the coming threat. Batman, using the weapon revealed as baby Darkseid, believes he can use Darkseid's Omega beams to go back in time to stop the coming threat of Barbatos. However, the Court of Owls and the Strigydae trick him into instead opening a "doorway" that allows the threat to come to the present.

Indexer Notes

Barbatos has been plotting for millennia to use Batman in his plans, it is mentioned that he first became aware of Batman's existence is when Darkseid's Omega beams transported Bruce back in time, as shown in Final Crisis (DC, 2008 series) and The Return of Bruce Wayne (DC, 2010 series).

Darkseid was killed and reborn as an infant in Justice League (DC, 2011 series) #44 and #50.
