    Christos Gage, Iban Coello, Iban Coello
    The JLB makes ready to deploy worldwide to address the situation of the world's technology coming alive, with deadly intent towards humans. Warhawk accuses Zod of being the culprit, but is reminded that Zod's control was of Kryptonian technology. The bickering is put on hold to cover various areas of the Earth, with Warhawk promising to keep an eye on Zod. Micron encounters the Metal Men and a new revelation: tech-based heroes are vulnerable and are being co-opted as well. Batman seeks the aid of friend and confidant, Max Gibson, who is keeping Batman's tech from falling prey to being usurped. She alerts Batman that the intrusive program has a purpose and is seeking the members of Undercloud. We're shown flashes of the JLB in action from Manhattan to Beijing, battling against the rogue tech, when old guard heroes the Ray and Red Star appear and add more confusion to the scene by attacking. Green Lantern (Kai-Ro) secures Red Star and discovers that his body is saturated with nano-machines. Superman realizes instantly that if nanotech is involved at this scale, only one being can be responsible. He takes to space to see his deduction realized. Brainiac has returned, with multiple ships that bear ominous features.

    The Justice League Beyond (JLB) is hard at the task of contending with an invasion from Brainiac. Earth's technology has been co-opted, in addition to heroes that have a foot in the tech world as well. Superman confronts Brainiac, who reveals that he has planned this attack for years if not decades. Brainiac's planning is shown when the Flash seeks out Dr Fate, and finds him a prisoner to Brainiac's simulacrum drones. When Superman seeks to contact off-world help, the result is the same. Brainiac has planned ahead, and the Guardians, New Genesis, even Apokolips is beset by the machinations of Brainiac. The Flash is able to gather some magic-users to the cause, and Orion arrives from New Genesis, but only looking to conscript Big Barda and Mister Miracle in the aid of New Genesis. The New Gods make the tough decision to stand with Earth, as Mister Miracle believes that Brainiac can only be defeated here. The decision bears a heavy cost, in that they are exiled, both, from New Genesis. The JLB is barely holding Brainiac at bay, using Mister Miracle's Mother Box to protect some of Earth's technology, knowing that when Brainiac has consumed it all, the game's done. However, at not quite the penultimate moment, Aquagirl returns and with an army behind her: The Atlanteans.

Superman believes that the Justice League Beyond(JLB) is turning the tide, as they're eking out a defense against Brainiac's insurgency. Magic is deployed in the form of the wizard, Shazam, and Black Adam. Warhawk and Zod encounter Brainiac, who tries to convince Zod to join him. Zod agrees, but once he has gained the information he seeks, betrays Zod with a blast of heat vision. Zod now knows Brainiac's plan, but is rendered unconscious before he can relay what he knows. However, anomalies begin to occur along the prime meridian, and by the issue's end, a face that can only belong to Brainiac has etched itself into the Earth, which Superman can now see from space.

    Christos Gage, Iban Coello, Rob Lean
    It's a week later after Brainiac has taken over the Earth. It took only two days, and the Justice League Beyond (JLB) continues to fight on, their opposition has turned into an insurgency, as they've barely managed a foothold with their resistance. The magic-users of the League are all that stands between ultimate defeat, and the most potent of them is Captain Marvel. However, Brainiac has sorted out a way to remove Captain Marvel from the equation, infusing his body with Nth metal nanites, and restocking him in the column for Team Brainiac. The JLB, while pressed, is not completely out of resources, and they move to where they will make their last stand, on the island synonymous with magic, Paradise Island.

    Christos Gage, Iban Coello, Rob Lean
    Brainiac makes for Paradise Island/Themyscira to defeat the remaining resistance that is the Justice League Beyond (JLB). Brainiac's forces are easily defeated, but both sides realize that this is just an examination: The JLB wants to see how strong their defenses are, and Brainiac needs to measure what it will take to defeat them. Superman, however, has long-range plans that involve Kryptonian crystals, a Mother Box, Klarion's sorcery, and Max Gibson's coding skills, all of which make a virus capable of disabling Brainiac. Micron and the Flash are tasked with uploading the virus into Brainiac's network, and are successful in causing Brainiac to retreat. However, instead of withdrawing to a remote zone, Brainiac amasses himself in one of his anthropomorphic constructs and takes the fight to the JLB.

    Aquaman attempts to stop Brainiac from setting foot on Paradise Island, and has his efforts easily rebuffed. The JLB seeks to press their forces against Brainiac's final form, but begin to lose their magical allies, Faust and Klarion, who abandon the fight to save themselves. Mister Miracle devises a plan to infect Brainiac's body with the help of Aquaman's trident. The attack is successful, but Aquaman is incinerated in the process. Aquagirl seeks to avenge him, and with the rest of the JLB, a pile-on attack ensues to deny Brainiac a chance at escape and reforming elsewhere. While the battle rages on, the Flash and Micron continue to spread the virus throughout Brainiac's network. After Brainiac stumbles into a structure, a flash of energy strikes a rostrum, and from out of it appears what seems to be a familiar Amazon.

  • Justice League Beyond 2.0 - Chapter #16 (March 22)
    Christos Gage, Iban Coello, Rob Lean
    Brainiac is resisting the JLB's efforts to destroy him, as they need a strong force of magic to be effective against his Nth metal protection. They receive timely magical aid in the form of Wonder Woman, who joins the melee and hacks through Brainiac's limbs. Despite Wonder Woman's magical addition to the battle, Brainiac is still able to resist, and channels his energies into an attack that staggers the JLB. However, the Flash arrives with Captain Marvel in tow, as the magic virus that was uploaded to Brainiac's system was efficacious. Marvel is able to cause Brainiac's system to overload with one magic word, and Brainiac falls prostrate in defeat. While the others are seeing to the injured and fallen, Queen Mera asks Aquagirl to return to Atlantis and assume the throne. Aquagirl is hesitant and Mera leaves her to the decision on her own. Batman is in good spirits from the victory, but Superman reveals that Wonder Woman may have helped the JLB only to further the cause of her own team, the Justice Lords.

Lord Superman takes advantage of the calm, and attacks Wonder Woman, holding her by the throat, while he propositions Zod. Lord Superman tells Zod to join him, and together they can unite his divided Earth.
