Storyline

On Apokolips, Vermin Vunderbarr and Granny Goodness are competing for control in the power vacuum left by Darkseid's disappearance. She kidnaps Oberon in order to extort help from Mr. Miracle. Vunderbarr has imprisoned Kalibak, and Granny wants him freed to her control. Mr. Miracle and his wife Barda go to the Justice League for help, but J'onn J'onzz doesn't want to involve the League in helping one dictator over another. Flash wants to help, so he travels with Miracle and Barda to Apokolips in order to free Kalibak. Written by Tony-B4
