Wonder Woman and Hawkgirl battle the dark multiverse armies of Barbatos, while Aquaman, Green Lantern, Mr. Terrific, Deathstroke, and Plastic Man battle the Dark Knights. Wonder Woman descends to the Forge of Worlds where she faces a transformed Hawkman, who fights on the side of Barbatos, as Hawkgirl tries to reach Carter Hall, the man inside. Wonder Woman rescues Superman and Batman from the Forge of Worlds, and armored in Tenth Metal, they help turn the tide against the armies of Barbatos. Batman and an unexpected ally have a final battle with the Batman Who Laughs.

Indexer Notes

The Justice League and the other heroes are shown out of costume in civilian identities (except Swamp Thing and Detective Chimp). Martian Manhunter and Hawkgirl join the League.

Hawkman is shown to be unconscious, recovering after the battle. But before he fell unconscious he made notes of visions of things to come that he had seen while under the influence of Barbatos. Those visions include the Immortal Men, Controllers, Darkstars, the Dark Pantheon, and a vision of Atlantis rising to the surface.
