Synopsis for "Night and Day"
Batman interrupts the taking of a young boy by the minions of Grodd and manages to save the boy and his family albeit temporarily. As he heads back to the sewers Bruce reflects on how Gorilla Grodd was able to defeat and kill most of the Justice League and thanks to some handy mind control that allows him to keep tabs on all of humanity and a cloud of artificial Kryptonite that masks the Earth keeps Superman off planet Grodd is Earth's ruler. Only Batman keeps a lonely vigil and manages to avoid Grodd's near omnipotent mental powers through intense meditation techniques. When Alfred suddenly dies of a heart attack Bruce's defences drop for a moment and after an intense chase Grodd finally captures the Dark Knight. After a "private meeting" Grodd brings Batman out before a packed arena and intends to kill Bruce once and for all. Before Grodd can get on with the killing Superman suddenly appears overhead. Batman had created a cure for the synthetic Kryptonite and had been sending out a message letting Superman know about what he had discovered. Superman and Batman finally defeat Grodd and the world is freed of his control.
Meanwhile in the real world Alfred chides Batman about letting another meal go to waste. Batman apologizes and tells Alfred about how effective the update he made on the artificial intelligence of his computer systems was. Alfred muses on how morbid the simulations are that his employer has the computer run but Batman brushes them off as stories, one of many; every possible eventuality, past, present and future. With that Batman asks Alfred to reheat the food and shut down the servers since he is done for the night.
