Like all things on this hurtling sphere...

...I emerged from the molten center

of creation.

But mine has been a unique path.

Isolated, I developed attributes

beyond those of lesser beings.

Then the sphere was struck

by a vast celestial stone.

Black chunks of death filled the skies...

...and the world

became a chaotic garden of doom.

Soon the sphere began

to nurture new kinds of life.

And there was one

that stood above all the rest.

Its fragile shell belied its vicious nature.

And in what seemed like a heartbeat...

...these things proliferated in both number

and destructive means.

Now they have harnessed

the most destructive force.

And I, The Centre, have concluded...

...that the sphere

must be cleansed of them.

This is Lois Lane on Armed Forces Radio.

Well, boys, it looks like the party's over.

They signed the ceasefire.

So have a drink and smoke them

if you got them.

We're going home.

Some way to end a war, huh, kid?

Nobody wins, nobody loses.

Long as it's over, Ace. I got plans.

Right, I forgot.

You're gonna be a space ranger.

The proper term is "test pilot,"

funny man.

I'm gonna see the stars, close up.


Sons of b*tches must not have heard

about the ceasefire.

I'm coming back for you.

Try using your guns for a change.

Can you make it back now, Ace?

Roger that.

Gotta get me a new pair of skivvies.

Got another bogey.

Hal, your engine.

Punch out. Punch out!

Listen to me. War over.


It's over.

War over.

I'm so sorry.

All I wanted was to send a signal

to Mars.

How could I have known

it would teleport you here?

I suppose we both got the shock

of our lives.

But your heart must be stronger

than mine.

Whoever you are...

...forgive me.

Come on in, Kal.

Join the celebration.

Diana, what's going on here?

Tell them they'd be wasting their bullets.

Don't judge them, KaI.

They get a little nervous around men now.

What are you talking about?

-I was heading upriver...

...when I passed this village

about four days ago.

The people here helped the French.

The rebels didn't like that.

They murdered the men and children

and they threw them in the river.

These women were beaten and penned

in tiger cages for the rebels to use.

The rebels, how did they die?

I only disarmed them.

I left their guns in a clearing and

then I let the women out of their cages.

They did this?

And you just stood by and watched?

I gave them freedom

and a chance for justice.

You know, the American way.

This is what the government's afraid of,


Us acting like vigilantes.

I have to do what I think is right.

That's what the others said at first,


And now Batman's a fugitive,

the whole Justice Society's retired...

...and Hourman's dead.

No matter how much good we do...

...deep down, people are always

going to be scared of us.

Isn't that why you and I

signed those loyalty oaths?

Take a look around, Kal.

Oaths don't mean much here.

All I see is suffering and madness.


-There's the door, spaceman.


Yeah, yeah, yeah.


The downed pilot insisted

the island was teeming with dinosaurs...

...but Navy sources claim

a search revealed...

...that not only were there no dinosaurs,

there wasn't even an island.

In other news-

Well, I don't know, Groucho,

that's not really what I meant.

We keep our farm animals in the farm,

not in the house.

Not in the bedroom, certainly.

Eh, what's up, doc?

This now concludes our broadcasting day.

The last I heard,

she went back to Paradise Island.

It sounds like she's lost her mind.

I don't think it's that simple.
