Synopsis for Superman & Batman: "Today Mars, Tomorrow... the Universe"
After a mysterious Superman Robot attempts to murder J'onn J'onnz, Superman and Batman lend a hand on the investigation and return to Mars II with J’onn J’onzz after they learned that some Martians are trying to conquer a city, unaware that its atmosphere will prove deadly to them.
J'onn and Superman are unable to convince the Martians to stop their efforts, as they all believe J'onn is a traitor and they shouldn't heed his words. Meanwhile, Batman finds a Martian who has been affected by the city's deadly atmosphere and takes him to the rest of the Martians, who are finally convinced of the truth and decide to follow J'onn's leadership.

Synopsis for Green Arrow: "The Man Bear Stalks at Midnight"
Green Arrow and Black Canary have come to a Catskills lodge so that GA can hunt down the “bear” that is terrorizing it. But the bear proves to be Ursus, a “man-bear” with human thinking and speaking processes, who tells Green Arrow that he has no quarrel with him, and tells him to “beat it!” GA comes upon Ursus later, while the man-bear is rifling the lodge vault. After being kayoed by Ursus, Green Arrow comes to, trails him, and uses his trick arrows to capture the hulking being. Later, viewing Ursus behind bars, Green Arrow tells Black Canary that Ursus is a freak, not a crook, and he hated to place him behind bars. Furthermore, he feels that Ursus was turned into a monster by someone else, who probably ordered him to rob the hotel, and GA vows to find out who that someone is.

Synopsis for Black Canary: "Hospital of Fear"
Black Canary battles a group of three men who have come to spring Ursus from jail, but is kayoed by the explosion of their bomb, which blasts out the prison wall. However, she has heard one of them call another “Dolchak”, which, she discovers, is the name of an orderly at a hospital. When she goes there to investigate, she is chloroformed by one of the gang. Black Canary awakens to find herself tied to a table in front of Ursus, the man-bear, who is bound to a wall, with the three men and a surgically-masked villain called The Doctor before her. The Doctor gives Ursus an injection which will both madden him and, he thinks, make him a slave to the Doctor’s commands, intending to have Ursus kill Black Canary. But Ursus knocks the Doctor down, giving the Canary time to free herself. After a brief confrontation, Black Canary pushes Ursus back with water from a fire hose. When Ursus sees the Doctor draw a gun on the Canary, he attacks the man, thrusting both of them through a window. They fall to their deaths. Later, a sheriff tells Black Canary that the Doctor was just an intern, working for someone else, and that he couldn’t have been Ursus’s creator. Black Canary vows to find out who the man-bear’s creator really is.
