Synopsis for "Touchdown"

Several heroes band together aboard a space-borne version of Blue Beetle's Bug. Accompanying them is Jaime Reyes, the new Blue Beetle. They are en route to destroy the Brother Eye satellite. As they approach, dozens of OMACs soar outward attacking them.

On Earth-Two, the younger Superman consoles with the Earth-Two Superman over the death of his wife, Lois Lane. New Earth Wonder Woman appears as well and convinces him to rejoin the fight. The older Superman realizes that he has been acting irrationally, and that it is time once again to be a hero. He also knows that he must stop this new Multiverse from expanding or else it will end up destroying itself.

Across countless parallel worlds, scores of super-heroes deal with the cosmic upheaval of the multiple replicating Earths. Alexander Luthor uses his abilities to mix and match varying realities, but his efforts to create a perfect reality all end in failure. He even tries to merge Earth-Two and Earth-Three together, which makes Donna Troy realize that he is going to kill Superman and Wonder Woman. To prevent this, her team of heroes at the center of the universe fire at Luthor's hands, causing him to lose his right index finger and to distract him long enough to save Wonder Woman and the two Supermen.

On Earth-One, many of the world's mystic characters gather at Stonehenge and summon the Spectre. The Spectre is tethered to a former Gotham City police department detective named Crispus Allen. The Phantom Stranger begs the Spectre's aid, but the Spectre is more concerned with fulfilling his obligations of vengeance. He arbitrarily kills Deborah Darnell – the new Star Sapphire.

In the Arctic, Kon-El, Nightwing and Wonder Girl reach Alexander Luthor's power station. Wonder Girl begins freeing the imprisoned super-heroes, who subsequently begin attacking Luthor. Black Adam brutally murders Psycho-Pirate.

Superboy Prime emerges with his new solar-collecting armor and tries to kill Nightwing. Kon-El intercepts him and the two renew their battle. Kon-El succeeds in repelling Superboy-Prime and destroying the tower – but sacrifices his own life in the process. As the tower is destroyed, the multiple Earths all merge back into one single Earth.
