Synopsis for "Mighty"
Renee Montoya waits outside of a GCPD precinct for Maggie Sawyer so that she can quiz Maggie about Intergang's dealings in Gotham City. Sawyer lectures her about getting involved after quitting the police force. Renee returns home, where she and the Question decide they need to follow Intergang to Kahndaq.
Meanwhile, Black Adam helps a needy Kahndaqi village by changing the course of a river to provide them with water at the suggestion of Adrianna Tomaz, who felt that he was using his power in a misguided approach. Black Adam takes Adrianna down a secret passageway that connects to the Rock of Eternity, where they encounter Captain Marvel, who has taken Shazam's place as its guardian. It appears he is being driven mad by the voices of the Seven Deadly Sins. Adam shows Marvel the scarab that had imprisoned Adam for centuries, and tells him how the power of another hero was also contained within. He tells Marvel of his intent to give that power to Adrianna.
In Philadelphia, Cassie Sandsmark returns home to find Ralph Dibny sitting on her couch. He tells her how he was able to track her down and what he knows about the Cult of Conner and their robbery of his late wife's possessions from storage. Cassie tells him that the cult wanted to try to resurrect Sue as a trial run before trying to restore life to Superboy. Instead of being angry, as Cassie expected, Ralph offers to help.
Marvel agrees that Adrianna is worthy of the power of Isis. She is hesitant at first, but relents, and is born anew as Isis. She agrees to help Adam change the world, but not before finding her brother.
