Synopsis for "Only the Dead Know Bialya!"
Following the murder of Colonel Rumaan Harjavti, the Queen Bee declares herself the new ruler of Bialya. Batman disguises himself as Maxwell Lord and tries to track down Green Flame, while Blue Beetle and Booster Gold are taken into custody.
News of Harjavti's death reaches the JLI embassy in New York. Captain Atom is furious that Batman undertook this mission and decides to fly to Bialya to extricate the League.
Back in Bialya, Booster Gold manages to knock out a prison guard and Beetle and he are free. They meet up with Batman and Green Flame in the back alleys of the royal palace. While trying to leave the country, they run straight into the Queen Bee's secret weapon - Wandjina. Fortunately, Captain Atom arrives to give them some back-up. Captain Atom and Wandjina pit their powers against one another, but Captain Atom emerges victorious. Batman is unimpressed with Atom's showy demonstration and doesn't appreciate his interference in the mission. The Queen Bee arrives and tells the League that she will be happy to let them return to the United States. She coyly remarks that it is too early in her reign to concern herself with international incidents.
Meanwhile, the Martian Manhunter, Big Barda, Rocket Red and G'Nort continue their search for Mister Miracle. Barda uses technology from her Beta Club to give their ship warp-drive capabilities.
Within the Cluster, Lord Manga Khan receives word that his prisoner Mister Miracle is a New God. He decides to go to Apokolips to barter with Darkseid over Mister Miracle's life.
