Synopsis for "Godspeed"

Spectre regenerates himself and tells the JSA that the King of Tears has no conscience, guilt, or soul so he cannot assist and disappears.

Hawkgirl mentions Black Adam's real name, which is rare, and speaks about Hawkman's whereabouts. Mister Terrific proposes a plan and asks for Flash to run at super-luminal speeds; something only Wally West can achieve. Black Adam agrees to run with him and have Jay steal his power at the last second to reach the necessary speed to knock Johnny Sorrow out of this dimension, and send the King of Tears into the Speed Force. Jay asks what will happen to him, and Mr. Terrific tells him that's the risk he has to accept. Doctor Mid-Nite agrees to lure Johnny Sorrow into becoming tangible for Jay to strike him.

The Spectre reappears with the people in New York City. He uses his powers to quell the mob of scarred people into battling the creatures from hell. As the JSA help battle the creatures, Hawkgirl calls Mid-Nite McNider, the old Dr. Mid-Nite.

Johnny Sorrow tortures Sand who laughs at him. As he's continually hit trying to force him to open his eyes, Doctor Mid-Nite arrives and uses his goggle to play back the image of Johnny Sorrow revealing his face to him earlier.[1] Flash strikes Johnny as he's weakened and an explosion occurs with all the creatures from hell disappearing.

The Spectre finishes his work by reviving the Sentinel from his injuries.[2]

The Flash wakes up in a desert, with Nabu, Teth-Adam, and Prince Khufu standing over him.
