NPD checkups to Metropolis

City Hall. 2078W in progress.

Kidnapping with advanced weapons.

Got to be Intergang.

They took out half the reserve

with their tech weapons last week.

Makes you nostalgic

for assault rifles.

It's a lab they chose

to blast at, Maggie.

These a**holes are expecting something

to wreck, Dan. Probably with a cape.

Lucky me,

I know a back way.

Get Mr. Mayor and his

better half out of here

before we get in trouble

from the man upstairs.

Didn't know you

was a believer, boss.

That ain't the man upstairs

I'm talking about.

Step away from

the Mayor, Mannheim.

Don't give me a reason.

Then you shouldn't

have given me one.

You, make sure they're dead.

Painfully sure.

And you, grab our esteemed

Mayor while I call for a ride.

Okay. I'll get you

out of here.

Come on, fella. You don't

want to be a cop killer.

Yeah, why's that?


Hey, ever wonder what it feels

like to fall from a great distance?

Let's find out.

Oh, looks like it hurts.

Be right back.

Work, damn it!

Stupid piece of crap!

You're supposed to transport

me on my command.

Don't bother. Fried

it with my heat vision.

Only place you're being

transported to, Mannheim,

it's got three squares a day,

and lights out at 8:00.

Son of a b*tch!

You know, if there's one

thing I can't stand, it's a bully.

Guys like you

give Metropolis a bad name.

But you should know

by now, Mannheim,

no one tears my city apart

and gets away with it.

I feel like I say this a couple of

times a week but thanks, Superman.

I don't know what

we'd do without you.

You sound like a guy who

wants my vote, Mr. Mayor.

Hey, hey.

That's my friend there.


Hey, it's me, your old buddy.

Bibbo Bibbowski. How is

the unluckiest sailor in town?

Ah, come on. You ain't have to

save my bacon that many times!

Anyway, ain't no sailor no more.

I'm a restaurateur.

Ace O' Clubs Bar and Grill.

How about a picture

for the joint?


Stupid thing. Never works

when you need it to.

I got you covered.

Jimmy Olsen,

you're a lifesaver.

Say Superman!


Thanks, big guy.

I'll make sure to get

this to you, Mr. Bibbowski.

See you down at the joint, kid.

The ribs are on me.

Thanks, Jimmy. I really have

to get going.

Leaguers, is anyone...

- Available?

- 'Sup?

I have to be somewhere. Think you

could help with the cleanup?

Oh, again?

I swear you guys think I'm some

sort of one-man janitorial crew.

Well, while you're at it, my

apartment could use a going over.

Whoa! What the hell

have you been up against?

An Intergang crew that somehow

caught a hold of a mother box.

And that's not all. This

armor's from Apocalypse, too.

How'd you figure?

I'm wearing the same stuff,


Oh, great. Leftovers

from our war with Darkseid.

We need to get this analyzed. Maybe

one of the others could help.

No, we need someone

who's worked with this crap.

Someone who knows it

inside and out.

We need my dad.

I could take it to him if you want.

I know you two don't exactly...

Nah, it's cool. No problem ever

got better by avoiding it.

Well, at least, I won't be

slowing you down on cleanup.

- Later, partner.

- I owe you one, Flash.

You owe me

about 30.

I wonder if it's too late

to join the Titans.

Is there an age limit?

He's gonna take

pictures with anyone who asks.

The guy just can't

help himself.

You said

two minutes tops.

Sorry, Miss Lane,

tech-enhanced gangsters

kidnapping the Mayor and

other sort of distractions.

I know. I saw it live.

Are you sure you're not

just getting old?

You'll have to tell me
