Synopsis for "Last God Standing"

The assembled superheroes barely escape the effects of the shattered Source Wall. The old god Arzaz especially is responsible for helping those who cannot simply fly away. Steel talks about what the smaller group endured after they entered the Source. In the end, due to someone's efforts they were not able to reach the Godwave itself. When suddenly everything went black, they were expelled from the Source. Arzaz discovers that Darkseid is still on his huge ship, so he believes that there is another player present they do not yet know about. Shortly after that, Metron arrives and tells everybody that the unknown subject is non other than Ares. Darkseid is not too disturbed by these news. He thinks that the god of war will be vulnerable before he completely claims the power of the Godwave. Still, Darkseid agrees with Arzaz to join forces with the heroes.

With Ares seemingly becoming too powerful to overcome, the telepaths start to mentally connect not only the heroes but every other living creature in the universe in an attempt to save the Source. The psychic power is focused through New Genesis and Apokolips by Metron, leading to a separation of the two worlds, but more importantly to Ares' defeat.

In the aftermath, the heroes have a hard time remembering what originally happened because now everything seems to be the same as it was before the destruction of the Source Wall. One difference is that the wall now also consists of Darkseid, Ares, Arzaz and his opposite - the Nameless One. But Metron thinks that there may be other alterations of reality as well. Donna Troy feeling somehow different may be one indicator ...
