Synopsis for "Finale"

Thousands of heroes and villains converge on Metropolis for a massive battle following the destruction of the Earth-splitting machine and the merging of the Earths back into one single reality. This battle is orchestrated by Alexander Luthor as a last-ditch effort to take the Earth by force, but Superboy-Prime doesn't desire to have this Earth be his home reality -- he wants Earth-Prime back. As he is about to kill Cassie Mark with his heat vision, the Flash attacks Superboy-Prime -- the Flash who is revealed to be a grown-up version of Bart Allen, Kid Flash, who came back from the Speed Force wearing Barry Allen's original costume.

Superboy-Prime then decides on a rather radical plan to bring back his reality -- to fly through Oa and destroy it, using the energy in the Central Power Battery to create a new Big Bang that will restart everything with him being the only hero in the new universe. The heroes who could fly attempt to follow Superboy-Prime in order to stop him, but his heat vision causes Breach to explode, bringing Captain Atom back to his own reality. Kal-L tries one last time to reason with with Prime, but he refuses and takes off with both Supermen, Power Girl, Martian Manhunter, and Green Lanterns Hal Jordan and John Stewart in pursuit. With Superboy-Prime flying faster than even Kal-El or Kal-L can match, Hal Jordan sends a warning to the rest of the Green Lantern Corps.

Meanwhile, Batman, Nightwing, and Tim Drake take down Deathstroke together when Alexander Luthor attacks Nightwing with the last of his power, saying that Nightwing has ruined everything and damned his Earth. As Tim tends to Nightwing, Batman goes after Alexander with a gun, ready to shoot him when Wonder Woman intervenes, symbolically breaking her sword and saying Luthor is not worth killing. Batman relents, tossing the gun away and avoiding a crumbling building as it falls upon Alexander. He finds out that Nightwing will be fine.

As Superboy-Prime races toward Oa, he is slowed down by a 300-mile thick wall of pure green energy generated by the power rings of the Green Lantern Corps, who engage him in battle with Guy Gardner taking the lead. Superboy-Prime kills a handful of Green Lanterns and is almost ready to kill Guy when Hal Jordan intervenes. As Superboy-Prime is distracted, both Supermen grab him and fly him through the remains of Krypton and then through the red sun of Krypton, which causes all three heroes to lose their powers and for Superboy-Prime to lose his energy-storing armor. They crash-land on the Green Lantern planet Mogo, where Superboy-Prime kills Kal-L by pummeling him to death and almost does the same with Kal-El, saying that when Kal-El is gone, then he will be Superman. At that, Kal-El rips the S-shield off Superboy-Prime's chest, saying that he will never be Superman because he has no idea of what it means to be Superman, that it isn't about power or the symbol but about what he does with it. After Kal-El defeats Superboy-Prime, the Green Lantern Corps show up to destroy the Kryptonite that fell on the planet and to encase Superboy-Prime in a holding casket until he is brought to Oa for imprisonment. Power Girl weeps as her Earth-Two cousin dies, fearing that she will be left alone again, but Kal-L assures her that he will always be with her even if she can't see him, for he now sees what his wife has seen when she died.

As the heroes return to Earth to mourn for their dead, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman find themselves needing time to recover, not just physically but also spiritually as heroes. As Diana flies off in her invisible jet to find out who she really is, and Batman goes on a journey with Dick Grayson and Tim Drake to rebuild Batman, Clark joins with his wife Lois, realizing that even though he will need time to recharge his powers, the Earth will be in pretty good hands with enough heroes present to take care of things.

Meanwhile, in rainy Gotham City, Alexander Luthor fumes as he reads the news stating HEROES SAVE EARTH! CELEBRATIONS GLOBALLY, believing that the heroes haven't saved anything and that he will make the world a brighter place when he is attacked by a squirt of acid on his face and by the painful sting of electricity coming from a joy buzzer. It is the Joker who is looking to get his revenge for not being included in Alexander's plans. Lex Luthor also appears stating that Alexander had underestimated him, Superman, Superboy, and that he "didn't let the Joker play." As Lex Luthor watches the Joker strike the killing blow on his counterpart, he mockingly asks, "Now who's stupid?"

On Oa, Hal Jordan and Guy Gardner are heading to a memorial for the Green Lanterns recently killed, and observe the special prison used to house the renegade Kryptonian. Too dangerous to be held in the Sciencells, the Guardians have placed Superboy-Prime's cell in a junior red Sun-Eater given to them by Donna Troy, to be watched by fifty Green Lanterns at all times. In his cell, the Kryptonian etches a bloody S-shield on his bare chest, saying that he's been in worse places than this and he's gotten out.
