Synopsis for "Beasts II: Death Games"

The Justice League conducts an interview with the refugee animal woman, Reena. Reena tells them how she was once the assistant and lover of Rex Rogan, CEO of Repli-Tech Industries. When the company went bankrupt, Rogan and the board members (as well as Reena) volunteered to gain newfound power by way of a scientific process that manipulated their DNA, transforming them into animals. Calling himself Maximus Rex, Rogan established a gladiatorial combat arena, in which he and the other Ani-Men participated in vicious combat sports for the benefit of wealthy patrons. Reena can no longer bear the guilt for having associated with such a monstrous process and now turns to the JLA for help.

At the Arena, Maximus Rex enters a personal competition against one of his own Ani-Men, Rowl. Rowl had betrayed Rex by helping Reena escape, but now he has to face him one on one. Rowl is no match for Maximus Rex, and the savage lion-man slaughters him without mercy.

Meanwhile, the League receives word that Hawkman has been felled by a Scorpion Ani-Man in Egypt. They fly to Egypt where Hawkwoman and Wonder Woman maintain a vigil at his bedside. The Ani-Men, as well as Repli-Tech's human agents, ambush the League and take Wonder Woman and the Hawks hostage. Maximus Rex broadcasts a message to the Justice League Satellite, revealing that he has the fallen heroes and that he is declaring himself the leader of a New Order.
