Synopsis for "Beasts"
There is a new night spot in town that caters to the extremely rich - the Arena. Those with deep pockets and low morale have the opportunity to witness a savage, merciless, sporting event patterned in the style of Roman gladiatorial combat. The patrons howl with delight as blood from the arena victims sprays across their faces.
At Metropolis Harbor, Superman and Wonder Woman engage a group of armored men who had just stolen from top secret equipment from S.T.A.R. Labs. The heroes are surprised when a giant whale-man named Gargantus emerges from the bay and assists the thieves. Wonder Woman is knocked for a loop and nearly drowns, but Superman resuscitates her.
Back in New York, Firestorm encounters a cat-woman named Reena burglarizing the Empire State Building. After a brief scuffle, Reena surrenders to him and asks him for sanctuary. He brings Reena back to the Justice League Satellite where she reveals the nature of the Ani-Men that have been attacking various League members.
