Secrets and lies reveal their true faces throughout this issue. When this multiverse was born another universe ended, one whose mother, Perpetua, was imprisoned within the Source Wall with the seven dark energies of creation. Perpetua's symbol has been drawn throughout the ages and throughout the multiverse. Should its meaning be deciphered, Perpetua will awaken. The elderly, dying Martian Keep senses this time is near and reveals the truth to J'onn J'onzz. The Martian Keep isn't just telling him of the past, she's telling him of his past. Ancient Earth scientists had learned that Perpetua's warriors were human/martian hybrids. When she was placed within the Source Wall, that secret went with both Earthlings and those from Mars. Yet, DNA was taken to recreate Perpetua's army. It came from a green Martian child J'onn J'onzz. Now, J'onn is the key to saving the multiverse from darkness. If he can't set it on the right path, Perpetua will be free to plunge it into oblivion. Hawkgirl and John Stewart must convince the Green Lantern Corps that Thanagar Prime has broken the law by keeping the Martian Keep captive in their vaults. Empress Shayara helps the Leaguers' case with her madness. This is due to losing her people to Despero. Kilowog wants to arrest her. Hawkgirl, who learns her wings are a map to get where the Justice League must go to stop Perpetua, convinces him otherwise. The Justice League and the Green Lantern Corp will need all the help they can get to prevent the multiverse's destruction. With that, Starman appears with Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman. He puts a part of Hawkgirl within Empress Shayara back where it belongs. She feels as if something missing from her had been returned to her, and it's just in time. The Justice League and Starman will need every hero at their disposal to save the multiverse.
