This is Henry Allen’s first Christmas as a free man in twenty years... but his son isn’t with him. Instead, and against Henry’s wishes, Barry continues down the rabbit-hole of his mother’s murder investigation. He now believes Dr. Nora Allen-Thompson was killed because she was secretly developing a “cure” for the metagene. He also discovers classified forensic evidence recovered from the crime scene: a hair. A cheetah hair...
Flash Fact: The cheetah is the fastest land animal, reaching up to 75 miles per hour.
Captain Cold believes he rules the streets of Central City. He’s bold enough to steal from anyone... even Vandal Savage. So when the Rogues intercept a huge cache of dark money meant to be funneled to the African warlord tasked by the Light with keeping Gorilla City contained, Vandal takes notice... and sends his enforcer: Barbara Minerva. An influential British heiress, years ago Minerva gained the powers of a feral feline deity. Her claws and fangs can rip and cut at impossible speeds... and Savage has directed her to rip and cut the hubristic thieves that dared to take from the Light. If Captain Cold wants his crew to survive, he’ll be forced to take on a very unlikely new recruit that’s equally interested in stopping the Cheetah. Welcome to the Rogues, Flash! Hope you survive the experience!

Like the eye of a hurricane, there is now a lull in Doomsday’s rampage - and it’s thanks to Lobo’s reckless decision to break the Green Lantern’s planetary barricade and engage the monster. As Lobo can’t be killed, the single-minded destroyer Doomsday is trapped in a repetitious loop. He brutally slaughters Lobo, Lobo regenerates, Doomsday brutally slaughters him again, Lobo regenerates again, ad infinitum. This buys the Corps precious time to regroup.
Hal Jordon and John Stewart confront Ganthet, demanding that the Guardians of the Universe declassify all information on Doomsday - and they might not like what they find...
Accessing comprehensive historical records, subject: Doomsday of Krypton.
Entry 1. Green Lantern dispatched to a pre-civilization planet, subsequently designated Krypton, to investigate reports of alleged unlawful experiments. A mad scientist was studying “reactive evolution” - the ability to die and then spontaneously resurrect with an immunity to whatever killed you; effective immortality and invulnerability. To do this, he was brutally murdering a test subject... over and over, countless times. Could the Lantern save this innocent victim? What would be left to save?
Entry 989. Green Lantern Corps dispatched to Graxos IV to facilitate evacuation and containment. Doomsday escaped and is ravaging the world’s primitive elf-like inhabitants. Can the lanterns work with the native Rrab family to prevent a genocide?
Entry 5789.All lanterns, alpha priority recall to Oa. Doomsday has reached the Green Lantern’s planetary HQ at the center of the universe - and not even the Guardians may be able to stop him...

"Vicki the Vampire Slayer", Part 1
The Supermen find themselves on Earth 4, a nightmarish world overrun with the undead. Through an internet hack, Henshaw gleams some information on what happened here. Years ago, the legendary Vampire Dracula made his way to Gotham City. He was eventually defeated, but not before turning the Batman into a true creature of the night.
As time went on and he lost more and more control, Batman eventually fed on his foes. First it was Penguin. Then Dent. Eventually, The Joker, too, was fed upon...and that's when Batman changed. No longer content with feeding on villains, Batman turned on the innocent people he swore to protect. His bloodlust unsatiable. Eventually, even the Justice League fell to his newfound power...Wonder Woman came to him in what she thought was a dream, unable to resist his charms. He ate from Superman while he slept, and proceeded to murder the woman who slept beside the Man of Steel. With their help, the rest of the League was easy. Dubbing themselves The Justice Masters, they rule the world with fear...and eat when they are hungry. And for sport.
Internet posts talk about a rumor. A rumor of an order of slayers, few in number, who stalk the vampires around the world. Though no one knows who the Gotham Slayer is, they know she is out there, fighting the good fight. Henshaw also discovers this vampire Superman, once powered by the Sun, now requires moonlight for energy...he still roams "Necropolis", and there's a full moon tonight. Henshaw records the data in his memory banks. He speaks to the others: "we must go to Gotham."

The Darkness Within Part 1 of 3
Bruised and battered after their battle with China White and her lackeys, Tim and Virgil make a startling discovery. After running the DNA tracker found in P&P against an international database, they get a hit. Deacon Blackfire. The marker appears to be looking for a Blackfire descendant, but to what end.
Meanwhile, the Man in Black distributes 1000s of pills to his dealers to flood the streets with.

And with Roland Daggette bankrolling the entire operation, a new base of operations will soon be established.
In a secure location, China White recruits a new member, Fright. Her scientific background as well as her powers make her an interesting asset to the Blackfire Cult. And she comes cheap, her price, to be the one to kill Red Robin.
From the diary of Stephanie Brown - December 20XX
It was great patrolling again, until we had to battle China White and her goons. We don’t know how many people may have been injured in the explosion. The cops are keeping things super quiet. And Tim, Tim has now become obsessed with finding out how this is connected to Deacon Blackfire. Before Tim's time as Robin, Bruce won't talk about it, Jason won't, even Dick and Barbara won't talk about it. Who is Deacon Blackfire and why does he scare the fearless Bat-family so much?

You've seen them in airports, in parks, on street corners... huddled in rows, heads shaved, robed in black, chanting in unison: "Let go of love... Embrace hate... Darkseid is... Judge others.... Enslave others... Darkseid is... Everything ends, nothing begins... Anti-Life justifies our hatred.... DARKSEID IS." You probably know them as the “Izzies.” They call themselves The Apokoliptians. By whatever name, they're the fastest growing new religion in the world, thanks in part to Kyle Mason, the biggest actor in Hollywood and the most famous advocate of Apokoliptism. And now that includes a new mandate: to help search for the Anti-Life Equation, which is tough because no one seems able to tell him exactly what it is – not even his master Darkseid, the nihilistic god-emperor of the hell-planet Apokolips. But Darkseid wants it anyway, and he'll stop at nothing to get it. Which means Kyle can stop at nothing. As if the normal life of a superstar weren't stressful enough.

Holiday Hell Part 1 of 2
“We regret to inform you that the 23rd young person, a student at UC Berkeley, has died in the last 3 months. While the toxicology report has not returned, there’s little doubt that the new street drug, P&P, was involved.” – Part of a press conference from Captain Renee Montoya
As soon as Captain Montoya started with the OPD, the new drug P&P hit the streets. Initially thought to be a harmless pleasure drug, akin to Ecstasy, the people of Oakland quickly found out that the drug is deadly. The drug is highly addictive, so much so that as soon as an hour after the high has worn off, users experience intense pain. Though timing varies, if the user doesn’t get another hit of the drug, the users go into shock and eventually dies. So far, no one has made it to the hospital in time to see if there is a cure. Who would develop such a drug and why sell it to young people? Captain Montoya aims to find out and she’s not alone.
Lex is also aware of what’s going on with P&P and he doesn’t like it. It’s one thing to be a criminal, but drugs are an arena he never ventured into. After consulting with Edge, Catwoman, The Calculator, and Deathstroke, it is decided to hire someone to covertly find out the source of P&P. Someone with a reputation for results. Enter the Black Manta!

Somewhere in the dark multiverse, Ebenezer Scrooge became a twisted monster: Ebenezer Scourge! The miserly fiend seeks to decrease the surplus population this Christmas, for what right have billions of people to be merry? The spirit of his partner in life, Jacob Marley, foresaw that only three heroes from different timelines could prevent this global humbuggary:
The hero of Christmas past: from the age of sorcery and elves, the wandering barbarian Valcan of Pytharia - better known as Claw the Unconquered!
The hero of Christmas present: the green man from the red world, J'onn J'onzz the Martian Manhunter!
The hero of Christmas future: the self-proclaimed greatest gift from the 25th century, Booster Gold!
But can even these three stop Ebenezer Scourge, or will he reduce them to little more than an undigested bit of beef?

It’s Christmas and as is the usual for all too many Hub City kids, nothing will be in their stocking. If, of course, the kids even have stockings. This year though, Vic Sage is out to improve the lives of Hub City youth by supplying the Hub City school system with electronic tablets. Vic is, of course, working at the behest of Vicki Vale and both are looking for a good news story to make national headlines. However that would be an expensive gift and capable donors are few and far between. Will the donor be Billionaire Steve Dayton? Could media magnate Lee Travis be convinced to help these kids? Perhaps the Pemberton Industries family fortune could be put to good use?
Although since it’s a Hub City story, happy endings are rare. “What did you get for Christmas?” “Homework. I got Homework.”

Bethlehem – 2,000 years ago – In a humble stable, a babe is born to poor parents, far from home. He is benchpressing cows before the night is spent, and his name is Orion. Not far away, shepherds tending their flocks in a field by night hear a voice from the sky and are slaughtered by parademons. Three visitors come seeking the child – his hairy, ape-like half-brother, a white-haired old woman with a maniacal grin, and a redheaded preacher of fire and brimstone. They carry rich gifts from faraway lands, including tiny, singing boxes of great cosmic power. They are messengers of Darkseid, the father of Orion, who genetically engineered the baby from his own seed and planted him in an unsuspecting virgin mother of Earth in the first step of his plan for conquest. But now Darkseid has learned of a new prophecy, that this very child will one day destroy him. So all Bethlehem is about to become a battleground.
