Hal Jordan and John Stewart struggle to pry the Parasite off of Oa’s Central Battery but are being overwhelmed! The sheer number of Manhunters is insurmountable! The Light is unstoppable!
Yet the Justice League’s true power was never its strength alone, but rather its ability to inspire. Other powers throughout the Universe arrive - including fleets from the member worlds of the still-new United Planets, in addition to the Yellow, Blue, and even the Red Lantern Corps! They’re behind our heroes and represent galactic unity!
This is the end of 50,000 years of planning. Against this overwhelming force, Savage begins to see that he can no longer win. But does that end his threat… or make him more dangerous?

“THE WRATH OF FLASH”
The Flash discovered Vandal Savage’s secret plan to facilitate his own immortal origin: steal life force from alien worlds, infuse it into a meteorite, and send that meteorite back in time for his past self to absorb! Flash tried to stop him, but the Reverse Flash convinced Barry that if he interfered with the past then humanity would be destroyed… so Flash had to let Savage win.
But that doesn’t mean Flash can’t change the future!
Flash, with the help of geniuses from the Justice League and elsewhere, now thinks he can reverse-engineer the Oa-Warworld technology that Vandal Savage used to siphon life force from alien worlds and give that stolen life back to a new world - like the Genesis Device from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan - except this time Savage himself will be the power source!
Can Flash reclaim the life force that Vandal Savage stole, returning it to the universe and rendering his arch-foe and the architect of the “Humanity First” event a mere mortal once again? Can he persuade his former mentees in W.O.A.H.’s Speedster Division to help him?

“PART THREE: SAVAGE OBITUARY”
Flash’s rogues succeeded in keeping Iris West alive. The world now knows the truth… all of it. It is time, then, for Iris West to write the final chapter of Vandal Savage’s story… his OBITUARY!
Over the course of 500,000 years, Vandal Savage committed countless atrocities. He conspired, sometimes from the shadows and sometimes in the open, to control the evolution of humanity. He wanted to shape mankind in his image: powerful, merciless, dominant. But he failed. He failed because it has always been humanity’s vulnerability and capacity for mercy and cooperation that make it special. He couldn’t change that. Not in 500,000 years. Not ever.
Vandal Savage’s actions could have doomed our world to a pariah’s destiny, forever hated by the rest of our galactic neighbors. Instead, the Galaxy bore witness to the best of humanity - its heroes - joining with non-human forces, together, to win the day and prevent further atrocities. I believe this is cause for optimism. Thanks to the Flash, Vandal’s demise literary resulted in the birth of a new world out in space. I believe it can also figuratively do the same for us on Earth.
Let us not remember the villain that manipulated the world to his evil ends. Let us, instead, remember that humanity prevailed against Stone Age philosophy. Let us remember that humanity did evolve, but not to be like Vandal Savage. It evolved to surpass him.

"JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE RING" *Conclusion!*
Written by Grant Morrison
Plot by CaptCleghorn
Art by Frank Quitely
Rhonda Pineda, known as Atomika, is inside a Green Lantern ring at sub-atomic size experiencing the force powering the ring in very unusual forms. At this point, the team she came to OA with has given her up for lost on a fool’s errand. “No big deal,” they said, “She just shrinks, what good is that?”
She’s experiencing existence as a totally new form at matter/energy because her size has gone beyond the planck length at which physical laws stop working as expected. She can see the beyond tiny wavelengths of the energy accessed by the Green Lantern rings. The smaller the wavelength the more powerful the energy. And Rhonda looks to shrink that wavelength even more using her belt’s abilities.
If she can manage to utilize the ring’s power and manage to increase the energy by shrinking wavelength, can Atomika fight the seduction of so much power, even from a depleted ring? And what will she do when she manages to find a ring with power still in it?

“Is it Justice or Vengeance?”
Marian Mercer, the vigilante calling herself Pagan has fired a bullet between the legs of one of the Hub City school shooters. The Hub City Police do not allow him to change his underwear before bringing him in. Vic and Marian manage to escape before the HCPD brings them in as well.
It is expected the captured shooter will talk and give up his friends. The FBI is involved as are state authorities. Parents of victims are making the rounds on media outlets and various news and “news” programs. Ron Troupe is making a name for himself with his understanding, kind, understanding mannerisms.
Vic, on the other hand, is facing pressure from the DCBA network to make this a big story and to focus on it heavily. His desire to bring forth aids to prevention of attacks like this and education warning signs is far too gentle and controlled for DCBA.
And Vic’s day gets interesting in the Chinese “May you live in interesting times” curse way. Betty Bates, Lady@Law has good news and bad news for him. She tells him the “Me Too” case against him is extraordinarily weak and really shouldn’t have gotten as far as it did. The woman making the charges is an employee of Lorelei Chase, the singer known as the Siren. The charger has a number of payments made to her by DCBA.
