Synopsis for "Justice League: Part Four"
Inside the red room of S.T.A.R. Labs in Detroit, Victor Stone is in lots of pain as his body undergoes an experimental procedure in which his damaged tissue is being replaced by promethium. When Vic comes to, he is confused by the changes and his dad, Silas Stone, tells him not to fight the programming. Suddenly, a group of the monsters invading Earth burst in and attack the Lab and Vic's suit goes into offense mode, using a white noise cannon to blast the monsters. When Vic asks his dad how he became a cyborg, Silas tells him it was the only way he could save him; however, learning his own father did it, Vic leaves in anger.
Meanwhile in Metropolis, Aquaman explains that the demons appeared in the ocean and that he wants to lead them against the monsters. There is a small dispute over leadership as Aquaman believes they need to find out why the demons are taking people to the tower and wants to use Green Lantern as a lure to distract them. Green Lantern demands to know what Aquaman can do that the rest of the superheroes can't and as the demons swarm towards them, Aquaman uses his mind to command gigantic sharks to jump out of the ocean and eat them and then kills the remaining demon with his trident. As the demons continue to attack, the army fires at them from helicopters; this angers Captain Trevor, who told them to hold their fire since Wonder Woman is on the ground, but a Sergeant tells him the army's been told that Wonder Woman can handle it and to fire on all non-humans, demons or super-people, and he should be glad that Wonder Woman is currently exempt.
Vic Stone is running through the streets when he sees a woman being attacked by the demons. He grabs a demon to protect her and his suit detects unassimilated data from a cube the demon has and downloads then translates it. His computer states that the demons have been commanded to locate inhabited worlds, harvest organic materials, process organic materials, and repurpose organic materials for Darkseid. When Vic asks where the sound in his ears is coming from, he is transported to the signal's source.
Superman tells the others that the soldiers need to be shut down since the soldiers are shooting at them. Flash is hesitant but he decides to help Superman disable the helicopters. Wonder Woman says they need to get the men inside to safety and Green Lantern says he'll do it but since he is touching Wonder Woman's lasso he accidentally reveals that he is only doing it to impress her. Suddenly Vic arrives on the scene and Batman stops Green Lantern from attacking him, then Vic warns them that Darkseid is coming. Then they all hear a huge boom as Darkseid arrives and attacks.
