Gotham 8 years ago, a younger Helena talk with her school friend when a man behind her group who is stalking them is captured by a mystery figure who we hear refer to one of the girls as his Grand-Daughter. What is Loss?
Virginia 5 years ago, a different Earth, Kara celebrates Helena’s birthday with her. What is Friendship?

Present day, at the headquarters of C.E.R.N. in Geneva, Switzerland, our heroes fly in (Superman, Batman, Power Girl, Huntress and Red Tornado). After some flirting between Val and Kara, they’re confronted by mutated creatures. As they battle them they are separated from each other, Huntress and Batman in one room. Red Tornado in another and Val and Kara in another. Lois (Red Tornado) finds a Dr Claudia Massaquoi who explains what happened. Bedlam opened a portal to his home and unleashed monsters who’s touch infected and mutated most of the staff. She warns they need to be stopped before they contaminate the whole world.
As Huntress see’s to the wounded she can’t except that Batman is her Grandfather.
Dr Massaquoi convinces them that if Val and Kara were to fly around the tunnel at super high speeds then collide it would cause an explosion similar to a neutron bomb. So they do just that and the energy released destroyed the virus the monsters were spreading and the monsters themselves. The 2 kryptonians fly into space to release the excess radiation they produced. They end up holding hands.
Good little story BUT makes NO sense after reading Earth 2: Worlds End #1. The timeline is all wrong and GL is missing from the equation. The end scene of Worlds End’s issue 1 totally contradicts this story. Oh well. This comic series is full of holes so what’s one more. 😛
Well it looks like Helena might be coming round to Thomas… ever so slightly. Nice misleading cover once again lol.
