Justice League – The Grid | Comics

Batman proposes an idea to Justice League to recruits new secondary members to their rank. Since all of the founding members have their own priorities, they are looking for heroes who can dedicate their full-time to the team. Wonder Woman assumes that Batman has already discussed about it with Cyborg, when Victor showed them that he created a database called "The Grid" to better respond to worldwide emergencies and super-human assistance.

So, Black Canary, Black Lightning, Blue Devil, Element Woman, Firestorm, Goldrush, Nightwing, Platinum, Vixen and Zatanna were called in to the Justice League Watchtower for initiation. Suddenly, Platinum goes haywire and starts attacking everyone present. With the combined effort of Rhonda Pineda AKA The Atom, Element Woman and Firestorm, she is finally neutralized. Cyborg then reveals that when they were busy fighting Platinum, someone stole their secret files from Watchtower.

Justice League – The Grid | Comics

Back in Batcave, Alfred Pennyworth and Jason Todd were mourning over the recent death of Damian Wayne. Suddenly, Jason is knocked out with a high-voltage shock and Alfred is thrown away by a stranger in a black bodysuit. Despite Alfred's warning, he enters deep inside the cave to open a secret vault and a box marked "S". In Kahndaq, Superman and Wonder Woman go undercover to secure hostages held captive by a terrorist group named Sons of Adam.

They saved the day but it was broadcasted worldwide, prompting Batman to pay an immediate visit to the "Power Couple". After revealing to them that he already knows that they are dating, Batman suggests them to keep it under cover as the fact of two of Earth's most powerful being in a relationship might scare a lot of people. Then he breaks the news of Batcave infiltration, where the means to take down Superman was stolen.

This gets Diana furious over Bruce but Clark talked her down saying he gave it to him for worst case scenario. In Watchtower, Despero came looking for Justice League but trashed down Element Woman, Firestorm and Atom. It was for the timely intervention of Martian Manhunter that saved the new recruits of the team. Right after Cyborg detects that the Watchtower is falling from the orbit, Superman catches it before impact.

The mysterious entity Pandora approaches Superman to open Pandora's Box thinking he was the purest of hearts but it tries to corrupt him and she escapes. He then rushes to Kahndaq to stop Shazam from trespassing and a fight ensues that quickly escalates to the point where things get too ugly that the three Justice Leagues go to war over confusion and misdirection created by a traitor from inside.

League Vs. League

At the beginning of the arc, many superheroes are assembled to be added into the prestigious roster of Justice League but only three of them; The Atom, Element Woman and Firestorm made it. All the core-members of the League were given enough space to develop their own tale and the chemistry between the Trinity is explored even further. Yet, both Aquaman and The Flash had a very little to do over the course of the story but the finale drew a large ensemble of many major characters.
