Aquaman and Plastic Man are under attack by assassins, who dosed Arthur with Scarecrow’s fear toxin that developed aqua-phobia in him and broke Plastic Man into pieces after freezing him solid. Superman calls Batman for help the Leaguers but he ignored his call to resume his search. The Flash and Wonder Woman goes to check into Green Lantern Kyle Rayner, who just lost his sight that morning.

Suddenly all of them are ambush attacked and taken down with ruthless efficiency. As Superman arrives at the scene to help, he too is instantly taken down with help from a chunk of Red Kryptonite, a modified version of the green Kryptonian rock that is lethal to him and is devised by The Dark Knight himself. All these operations are led by Talia al Ghul, daughter of the global terrorist Ra's al Ghul, simply indicating his involvement in this recent take-down operation.

All those plans to eliminate the powerful League members were designed by Batman as contingency for emergency situations, which Ra's have utilized against the JLA to succeed in his latest scheme of the reduction of the global population and it’s up to Batman to save the day and the rest of the Justice League.
