Synopsis for Superman & Batman: "Gotham City -- Ghost City"

A mysterious compulsion causes the citizenry of Gotham City to attempt mass immigration to Metropolis, forcing Superman and Batman to work together to find a solution to this enigma.

While Batman does some investigation, Superman has to prevent the chaos and destruction ensuing as a result of the massive influx of people from Gotham to his city. Even Batman's friend, Alfred has decided to leave. Batman finds surprising that neither him nor Commissioner Gordon have feel the need to leave Gotham.

Batman is informed about a petty criminal who wants to cash in on the sudden immigration and he learns that the crook suffers from insomnia. The clue gives Batman the hint that only the people who sleep well are affected, since he and Gordon haven't been able to sleep and have not been affected. His investigation also finds a source for the problem and he tells Superman about a couple of mysterious rocks underground. Superman goes underground and retrieves the rocks, which are apparently from Kryptonian origin and he tosses them into space, ending the sudden compulsion of Gotham citizens to leave for Metropolis. While Superman takes all the citizens from Gotham back to their cities, Batman gets a well deserved sleep.

Synopsis for "Green Arrow & Hawkman: Regarding the Winged Wonder"

Green Arrow comes upon a strange, ghostly apparition emerging from a theater near which he is stopping a mugging. The ghostlike creature coalesces into a man and informs GA that he is being pursued by the Searcher, who has sought him for 5,000 years, but he will not leave his adopted home of Earth. Then the creature vanishes. Later Green Arrow and Black Canary learn of another energy-being coming into being near a Star City electrical billboard. GA learns that the new being is The Searcher, pursuing the Fugitive, whom he claims is a criminal. When Green Arrow questions the Searcher’s authority and is attacked, Black Canary uses her cry on the Searcher and gets blasted by electrical force. Green Arrow manages to get Black Canary to the Justice League satellite, where Hawkman, on monitor duty, tends to her. Hawkman takes up the case, finds the Fugitive, and learns he stole a food ship to feed his starving people, for which the Searcher has pursued him for 50 centuries. The Searcher appears, knocks Hawkman aside, and engages in an energy-duel with the Fugitive. But Hawkman overloads their power with electricity from a nuclear power plant and forces them to “another physical plane of existence, where they can finish their battle without harming the Earth”.
