There he is!

Superman! Superman! Can

we ask you some questions?

- It's for our podcast.

- Well, in that case...

How many people that you

saved... have you saved?

- I...

- Never mind.

Does your thing really

stand for hope?

Yes. It does.

But it looks like an "S".

Yes, it's meant to. It's

meant to wind, like a river.

It comes and goes.

My fa...

A man I knew, used to say...

that hope is like a car keys.

Easy to lose, but

if you dig around...

...it's usually close by.

Did you ever fight a hippo?

That's dumb!

But hippos are the most deadly!

What is... What's the best

thing about planet Earth?


What are you doing?

Wait! No, wait!

Wait! Wait!

Please! Please,

man! Please!

What do you want from me?


They could smell it.

What the hell?

- What was that?

- A scout.

From space?

Like an alien army?

Alfred, are you seeing this?

I am. Matches the

other sightings.

And that pattern is

all over Luthor's notes.

Prep the jet. I'm

going north tonight.

Good. It's

time, then.

It's 'cause they

know he's dead, right?

Superman. He's gone.

Where does that leave us?

Drop your guns now!

Excuse me?

- Move it. Move!

- Don't shoot!

Get down.

Line them up along the

wall. Keep them quiet.

Who are you?

The lasso of Hestia compels

you to reveal the truth.

Now, who are you?

We're a small group of

reactionary terrorists.

We know that sinners brought

- on this plague of...

- Why the hostages?

You're too late. The

countdown's already begun.

In a few minutes,

4 city blocks...

While the world watches.

Shut up!

This is man's best hope.

Down with the modern world.

Back to the Dark Ages.

And the safety of holy fear.

This would've been

over quickly, but...

No! Don't!

I don't believe it.

- What are you?

- A believer.

I'm asking for your help.

I believe there's a stranger, comes

to this village from the sea.

He comes in the winter

when the people are hungry...

and brings fish.

He comes on the king tide...

That was last night.

Icebergs in the harbour.

Four months since the

last ship got through.

Well, this stranger...

Doesn't come by ship.

There are enemies

coming, from far away.

I need warriors.

I'm building an alliance,

to defend ourselves.

Look, I'll give

you $25,000 to...

talk to this man right now...


Something tells me that of

all he will give them to me.

Tell me what those 3 boxes

are and I'll make it 30.

You should get out.

Can you at least

point me to Atlantis?

Arthur Curry.

Also known as the

Protector of the Oceans.

The Aquaman.

I hear you can talk to fish.

So let me get this straight...

You do it dressed like a

bat? Like an actual bat?

It's worked for 20

years in Gotham.

Oh, that shithole.

The fight comes, we'll need you.

- Don't count on it, Batman.

- Why not?

Because I don't like

you coming here...

digging into my business,

getting into my life.

People from Atlantis

tell me, "Do this."

Now, you say,

"Do that."

I want to be left alone.

That why you help these people

out here in the middle of nowhere?

Because you can just leave?

I help them 'cause

no one else does.

You wanna protect them,

you need to work with me.

A strong man is strongest alone.

You ever heard that?

That's not a saying. That's the

opposite of what the saying is.

Yep. Doesn't

mean I'm wrong.

You ever hear of Superman?

- He died fighting next to me.

- My point exactly.

What's in the 3 boxes?

It's ancient history.

Mankind's melting

the polar ice caps...

Destroying the ecosystem,

they got it coming?

Hey, I don't mind

if the ocean rise.

How about if they boil?

Dressed like a bat.

You're out of your

mind, Bruce Wayne.

Doesn't mean I'm wrong.

So, you say you have no way

of reconnecting with this...


I put a tracking

device in his coat...

He left without it.

It may, in fact, not

have been his coat.

Those squares,

from Luthor's notes...

I think they must be

containers of some kind.

- Of what?

- I don't know.

Money, power. Something

worth starting a war over.

Well, we had luck

with one person...

on the team list.

Barry Allen, of Central City.

He's completely off the grid.

Squatting, I think.

Moves suddenly and often.

- Disappearing act?

- But he does visit his father...

...in prison.

- For murdering his mother.

- Jesus!

Young Barry always protested

his father's innocence...

But he was 9 and

nobody listened to him.

We have somebody at the prison?

Oh, yeah. We'll

find the address.

- What about, Diana?

- Well, you have her number.

You could've called her.

Perhaps I should fly to Paris

with a handwritten note?

"Will you be

Bruce' teammate?"

Yes or No"

I'm only interested

in her skill set.

- I'm sure you are.

- Can we?

Well, facial recognition's

a bit dodgy on this one.

But it's got a partial match.

A Victor Stone.

Genius I.Q., football

scholarship to GCU...

And deceased.

Figures. Fairy tales

and ghost stories.

One misses the days

when one's biggest

concerns were exploding

wind-up penguins?

The simple life.

I don't recognize this world.

I don't have to recognize it.

I just have to save it.

Here to see Henry Allen.


Hurry it up, will you?

What, you got a problem?

No. There's

no problem.

Better not be.

You know where to go.

Are those prescription...

Or you just trying

to look brainy?

Because you're holding yourself
