Synopsis
Week eighteen sees the understated funeral for Booster Gold. Black Adam honors the heroes of the royal wedding, though Montoya wants nothing more than to climb back into a bottle. And the Detective Chimp and Ralph loose a colleague in the Croatoan Society to the Helm of Fate, and the Shadowpact is concerned about its affect on Ralph.
