Synopsis for the 1st Story

The Legion has located the Wanderers. Supergirl, Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl, Lightning Lad and Brainiac 5 barge in on their gathering to rescue their kidnapped teammates.

Lightning Lad meets and confronts his brother Mekt. Mekt insists that he is merely recruiting soldiers to fight a threat to Earth. He warns that a new robot rebellion is brewing in Mega Tokyo. Several A.I. robots are building a "machine god" that will soon arise and deliver Earth to the Dominators.

Cosmic Boy orders Supergirl, Mon-El, Ultraboy and Brainiac-5 to go to Mega Tokyo and scope the situation out. The four heroes head to the city.

Meanwhile, Lightning Lad and Light Lass reveal the Mekt's past. He was joyriding near the planet Korbal, not knowing his siblings stowed away, when his ship went down. On the planet's surface, the Korbalians blasted them with lightning bolts. The twins lost consciousness right away, but Mekt came to and managed to get his little siblings back to the ship. That's when he realized whatever the Korbalians had done, it had given them bio-electrical powers like them. He flew them back to his homeworld Winath, and as soon as he could get out of his hospital bed, Mekt took off for parts unknown. Garth and Ayla spent years searching for him uselessly. They were worried about him because he had a death wish.

In Mega Tokyo, the four Legionnaires have apparently quelled the robot rebellion, when the "mecha god" arises: a massively humongous robot resembling a Dominator. Brainiac requests reinforcements as his teammates engage the robot. Their combined powers are taking the robot apart easily, making them extremely suspicious. They know it cannot be so easy.

They peel the robot's outer layers off to ascertain why its systems are active, and Supergirl X-Rays it. Kara gasps when she realizes what that robot was built for. It is a delivery system.

The robot expels out a red cloud containing some kind of bio-chemical gas. As the bio-chemical agent begins spreading all over the atmosphere, Brainic reports Cosmic Boy that they have lost.
