Synopsis for "Secret Identities"

Day 1
At the Fortress of Solitude, Skeets runs amok. He slams into the shrunken city of Kandor, nearly toppling it over. Rip Hunter tells Supernova to give him the controls to his costume, and take off. Supernova obeys, and flies away. Suddenly, in his place, Booster Gold appears. Skeets is perplexed. He does not understand how Booster is still alive. Booster knew that an outside force was controlling Skeets, so he faked his own death, and traveled backwards in time twelve weeks from this point to assume the guise of Supernova. From there, Rip Hunter and he had been surreptitiously gathering advanced technology from around the globe, preparing for what they knew would be a tremendous battle.

While Booster keeps Skeets distracted, Rip Hunter quickly cobbles together a Phantom Zone Projector. He activates it, and a wave of purple energy projects outward. Rather than imprisoning Skeets however, the Phantom Zone energy only serves to nourish him, and he begins eating the Phantom Zone. Before Skeets can do any more damage, Rip and Booster time-jump away.

Day 4
Green Lantern flies over Star City, using his ring to restore power to the impoverished areas of the city. From a rooftop, Oliver Queen and Dinah Laurel Lance look on. Dinah cannot believe that Ollie is actually running for Mayor of Star City.

Day 5
On a remote asteroid in outer space, funeral services are held for Animal Man. Lobo, in his capacity of priest, administers the last rites. He then hops onto his space-hog, leaving Adam Strange and Starfire to their fate. Solemnly, the two surviving heroes get into the Thanagarian ship and blast off. Animal Man suddenly awakens and screams, "No. Don't leave me!!!" Two yellow-skinned aliens appear beside him.
