We start with the Squad battling the Eclipso infected League at the White House in Washington. The Squad don't fare so well, and they start to lost members to Eclipso himself, as he starts to turn them on by one. Batman remembers that sunlight is Eclipso's weakness, and asks Killer Frost to make a prism using her powers, one that will stand up to Superman's heat vision. This would mean that Killer Frost would need to use all the power in her body, which could leave her dead. She does so, and Batman manages to trick Superman to aiming his heat vision at his direction. Once the beams hit he prism, the light scatters to everyone close by, releasing them from Eclipso's control. Max lord falls to the ground, free from Eclipso, and Amanda Waller orders Killer Frost to take all of Max Lord's life force to sustain her. Killer Frost refuses, and falls to the ground dying from the lack of heat she needs to sustain her life. The League and the Squad gather together and feed little bits of their own energy, to help Killer Frost to recover enough so she doesn't die. Later at Belle Reve, Superman tells Killer Frost how truly brave she is, and that it wasn't suicide on her part, but rather a sacrifice for the greater good. Lobo tells Batman he owes him one, and that he is a man of his word. Batman tells Lobo he wants him to join a Justice League of his own. We end with Amanda Waller visiting Max Lord in his holding cell at Belle Reve, where he strapped to machines that pump blood thinners into his body, meaning if he were to attempt to use his powers, he would bleed to death. Max reveals that he figured out that it was Waller herself that masterminded the whole fiasco, just to protect herself and make the Squad an invaluable commodity. He then asks if he will be recruited to her Task Force X now too, to which she says no, but he will make a great addition to Task Force XI.

Batman and Wonder Woman are fighting some kind of soldier. According to Batman, they are looking for Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD for short). Wonder Woman asks Green Lantern where she is, and Jessica Cruz tells them she believes she has found the leader. He calls himself The Black Shield (1st Appearance) and claims he is the good guy and plans on stopping terrorists by wiping out everyone who lives in populations that is known to harvest terrorists. After a very brief battle, in which we see Black Shield use Jessica's powers against her, Jessica crashes into a home freighting a little girl and her mother. Black Shield manages to get his WMD launched but not before Jessica rejoins the fight and contains the explosion inside a green sphere. Up on the Watchtower Cyborg informs the trio that it is a compound designed to melt human flesh. Batman asks Jessica if everything is okay and she shrugs him off. Wonder Woman then confronts Jessica and asks her the same question, teasing she will use her lasso of truth if need be. Jessica confides in her and says she was embarrassed that she let Black Shield best her in battle and felt guilty scaring that family whose house she crashed into. Wonder Woman tells her collateral damage is always a possibility but we do what we can to minimize it. Batman overhears this conversation and tells her the alternative was for the WMD to go off and that whole town dies. Jessica says that child will see her face and be fearful of it when she closes her eyes every night. She then says, "Can you even imagine what it is to experience such terror? To feel so weak and helpless?" Batman replies, "Yes... I... Can" and walks off. Jessica asks Wonder Woman, "Did I just step into something?" Wonder Woman is shown scaring information from the soldiers they captured during the first encounter asking where the next target is. Batman and Wonder Woman are having a hard time taking out Black Shield, his force shield is just too tough. Jessica Cruz comes out of nowhere and entraps Black Shield in some type of enclosed construct, but not before he launches eight new WMD's toward the city. Wonder Woman convinces Jessica that she has the will power to stop them all and she does just that. Jessica flies off saying she will always keep trying.

Up in the Watchtower, the League discover a powerful storm forming in the Atlantic Ocean with the focus being Atlantis. They go to investigate and Flash comments that the storm must be 200 miles wide. They also notice that Atlantis is covered in a dome, and according to Cyborg's scans this dome is unbreakable. Baz informs the group that this is affecting wave patterns and a massive tidal wave is headed to U.S. coastline. The heroes immediately head to land to see a massive tidal wave coming towards the city towering above the tallest of buildings. They immediately put plans into action to stop or at least attempt to reduce the impact. Mera appears out of the wave and demands that the Justice League do not interfere with what's going on. The League asks for an explanation and she gives a brief summary of Arthur being cast down as King and that she cannot enter Atlantis because of the barrier (for more details see Aquaman #24 and #25). Superman and Wonder Woman attempt to calm Mera down, she responds by commanding the ocean to take them away. A fight ensues; first she disables both Baz and Jessica by putting water between their rings and flesh causing the rings to come off their fingers. Next she dehydrates Flash by pulling water out of him causing him to cramp up. Cyborg tries to get to her and she creates a tornado made of water and engulfs him. Batman attempts to sneak up on her, but she catches him and starts to choke him but he has a plan and pulls out a Hypersonic Screamer which stops Mera's assault. With Mera's rage subsided she explains to the League that they can't help her because they are surface dwellers and an attack on Atlantis by a surface dweller is an act of war, the one thing Arthur always tried to protect from happening. The League says they will help her but only if she wants their help. They take her to the watchtower to discuss what to do next. Baz interrupts and says their assistance is needed as Hate Drones have been deployed in Pakistan. Batman suggests that Mera comes with them. Baz questions if that's a good idea considering what she just did to them, and Batman replies, "Exactly, you saw what she did to us".

The books opens up with a tale of a being called Shirak who took over world after world, turning each world's inhabitants into zombie like soldiers. This carried on until Shirak and his armies came across the Green Lantern Corp. A massive war erupted between the two, many lives were lost on both sides, but in the end the Green Lantern Corp prevailed and Shirak exploded into little shards. Where each shard fell he would rise again and so would his army. The Corp tracked down all of the shards but one, and that one fell to Earth. In the present, we find that this tale is being told by Molly to Batman. Molly was a villain in the Timeless story arc a few months back. She warns him of a coming doom, and references a slew of story arcs from Hitch's run. The Timeless couldn't stop it, The World Breakers couldn't stop, nor did the Purge. She then said it's now up to you to stop it, and she will tell him everything she knows "It's all about Rebirth", she tells him. The story shifts to the Michigan Science Center, Detroit where Baz and Vic (Green Lantern and Cyborg) are chaperoning a High school field trip. A student runs up to Vic and Baz and tells them one of the teachers is feeling ill. Vic offers the teacher some water when all of a sudden he pulls out a gun and grabs a student. The teacher says the voices are telling him for blood, for life. It appears as if the teacher is trying to fight whatever it is that is making him do this as he lets the student go puts the gun to his own head says, "wants blood" and pulls the trigger. Molly is telling Batman that time repeats itself, it's an endless cycle. "The crisis, Flashpoint, Rebirths all symptoms of something bigger". Batman asks, "Do you know what it is?" and she responds, "Nobody does but we can all feel it and its effects. More evil is walking today that should have stayed dead." Back at the school, the "dead" teacher's body forms a cocoon around it and he morphs into Shirak. He lets off a gas that turns everyone in a 3 mile radius into his new army. Baz throws up a shield protecting him Vic and some of the kids. Baz goes full Green Lantern and charges at him but Shirak thrashes him around like a doll. Molly tells Batman, "There's a mind behind it. A will, a curiosity, it has created reality, molded it, shaped it, and everything within it has a consequence". "You're talking about God, I don't believe in God", Batman replies. Baz has called in the Justice League for help and Mera, Flash, Jessica, Wonder Woman and Superman respond. Our heroes manage to temporarily hold back the army, but Shirak eventually subdues the newly arrived heroes. Cyborg discovers that Shirak's power is technological and Baz uses his ring with Cyborg's help to rewire his programing. Stripping all the power away from Shirak, he cocoons again and out comes the teacher unaware of what has transpired. "The end is here, Bruce you've brought it on everyone, everything, all of you have. You're about to find out just what your lives are worth," Molly warns Batman.

The children from the future reminisce about the fond memories they had at the Watchtower when they were younger. Cyborg informs them that he is going to scan their DNA to see if there is any validity to the claim that they are indeed their offspring from the future. Indeed it is as they claim to be. Flash and Jessica Cruz gave birth to 3 of the children. Wonder Woman gave birth to one but then abandoned him, because he was a male child. Superman brought this baby into his family with Jon and Lois and tried to raise him as his own. Cyborg is the father of another and so is Mera. It is here where it gets a tad interesting. Hunter tells Superman that he enjoyed hanging around Jon and Damien but that was before. "Doesn't matter", he says. Feeling left out Baz asks, "So, I had no children?" And is informed that he ends up leading the Yellow Lanterns after he kills Sinestro. The League asks them why they're here and Cube links with Cyborg and shows him everything, from the birth of these offspring, a Super Powered war between meta heroes and meta villains, the children's seclusion on Mount Olympus, to which they were abandoned there, the rise of Sovereign and his rise to ruler of Earth, and finally the kids' jump to our time. Batman is in the cave analyzing data on the Kindred when he gets a warning someone is in the cave with him. It's Arthur Curry from the future who gets the surprise jump on Batman and standing over him, tells him he needs to borrow some of his stuff.

At the Kent Farm, Hunter, Wonder Woman's "son" from the future, is having dinner with the Kents. He is explaining to Jon how big he becomes in the future. He again brings up Damien but cuts himself off of telling Clark what happens to him in the future. Clark offers Hunter a shower and some clean clothes. Excited, Jon leads him up to his room and says, "You can tell me how cool it will look in the future." Clark apologizes to Lois for bringing him home. He also questions if what the League did against the Kindred was the right thing? How they never bothered to find out what they were doing, they saw a threat and dealt with it, and now it may be too late. Mera and Eldora, Cyborg and Cube, Flash and Jesica Cruz and the three other children all take a little time getting to know each other. Baz is at a quarantined Midway City, after checking himself and others for infections he thinks he hears a voice say, "Here. Like Before. Different. More. Find. Grow. Feed. Feast." Back at the Kent Farm, Clark and Hunter share a moment. Clark asks what happens to Jon. Hunter replies, "He fought and died at your side". And Lois? Hunter lowers his head and just replies, "Sorry." Clark says, "We will stop the future". But Hunter doesn't believe they can. Back at the Watchtower, Wonder Woman is remembering her role with the Kindred, and what they made her feel. The war that is coming, what if it is a war with her? Cube, who has been connected to the Watchtower the entire time, overhearing all of Diana's conversation, reaches out to Hunter and they come to an agreement, in order to save their future, Wonder Woman has to die.

Jon is missing and so is Hunter, Clark asks Lois if she has seen them when Clark doubles over and says, "Kryptonite". Arthur Curry appears out of nowhere with Kryptonite he stole from the Batcave (see issue #27) and proceeds to beat Clark mercilessly before throwing him over his shoulder and leaving just as quick as he came. Wonder Woman is still remembering her battle against the Kindred while the majority of the children from the future await to attack her saying, "Wonder Woman dies, our future lives". When they attack Wonder Woman is ready and easily defends herself from the first wave until Hunter joins the fight. Batman leans over Lois who is starting to wake up from her confrontation with Arthur. She tells Batman he took him and he needs to assemble the League to help him. Aquaman proceeds to take out Flash, Jessica Cruz and Cyborg. He takes Cyborg the same way he took Clark. Lois is filling Batman in on the kids from the future before ranting on the fact that Batman had instruments at his disposal that could hurt, even kill Clark and Jon and says, "Whenever this is over, you and I are going to have a conversation, but right now find my husband." Wonder Woman appears to have the upper hand on Hunter when he calls for Cube to open a portal. However instead of where it was supposed to go, it teleports the children and Wonder Woman to Midway City, the place Baz has been helping keep quarantined from whatever parasite is there. Hungry. Open. Feed. Grow. Baz keeps hearing these words. As soon as the children land Baz succumbs to the voices, lowers his shield and releases the darkness that devours Wonder Woman. Back at Amnesty Bay Serenity, the one child who did not join the others, and Mera are still "reconnecting". Mera asks her daughter what happens to her and Arthur in the future. She explains to her that she died fighting until the end, but Arthur he... appears in front of them. Serenity immediately goes into attack mode. Mera asks if he is there to kill them and he respond "Never you". He then says he is sorry and proclaims that Sovereign Queen of the world has come to reclaim everything she has lost, and she will burn the world to find it.

Sovereign is here, and the darkness has taken control of our heroes, let the chaos begin. Wonder Woman and Sovereign (her mother from the future) are trading blows. The Darkness is still persuading her to "kill her, kill your mother, your children, hate them, kill them". Flash is fighting his two children. "I want Iris, I want to have my children with her. Kill you to save my future with Iris". Batman finally rejoins the heroes completely unaffected by the darkness. "Lois told me to save you Superman, and I'm damn well going to even if it kills me". In the last issue, Baz took what appeared to be a lethal blow, he remains motionless the entire time. The Lantern twins (who have control over the whole light spectrum) go Black and White and heal him and bring Baz back to life. In a flash forward, thanks to Cube syncing with Cyborg again, we learn that Diana was already possessed with the Darkness when she gave birth to Hunter, and the Darkness convinced her that he would grow up to become the next Trigon or Darkseid, so, out of love, she abandoned him. The Lantern twins, with their new found confidence, join together and with a chant of "No anger only compassion. No intolerance only forgiveness. No hate, love" they force the darkness out of our heroes and contain it in a sphere and boom tube it to nowhere. After a week of children-parent bonding, the children of the future say their goodbyes and return to their own time. As the book comes to a close Batman says, "Think the future will be different?" "Let's go find out," replies Superman.
