In this final hour, I know that a shield was not the answer. If I could call the power back...if I could repurpose it--the energy of the Avatar Sphere has been released. I used it...and can't call it back...but it doesn't have to be a shield.
We of this Earth are so small and powerless...yet every decision we make spawns a new world. And though we fought Apokolips with everything we had...and sacrificed an unimaginable amount...it wasn't enough. No matter how much we struggle...the end must come.
Ah, well... when I said I didn't need your help - can't believe I'm saying this - but - I may have been wrong.
