Desaad’s laughter was cut short as his weapon exploded in his arms. ”There will be no deaths for Darkseid today, monster!” J’onn J’onzz said as he entered the room through the boom tube, his eyes still glowing red from the blast.
A large, flat, green piece of steel appeared and flattened Desaad against the floor. The construct then morphed into an intricate mechanism designed to hold a prisoner captive and pinned the sadist to the ground in a position that could only be described as ‘uncomfortable’. John Stewart, ever the architect, ever the perfectionist came flying through the boom tube behind his construct device and stood on top of it. ”J’onn! Help Superman!”
"I’m fine!" Clark said, standing and rubbing his neck. "He just caught me by surprise."
"Kal-El, have you seen Guy?" J’onn asked him. "John was able to send his hand to a nearby medical facility for safe keeping before we left. Do you know they are holdi-"
"Look out!" Superman shouted.
But it was too late for the Martian. In a blur, Kalibak tackled him sending the pair in a tangle through one of the few undamaged walls and into a separate chamber next door. J’onn was able to twist his head free enough to see his new surroundings. And he could also see Superman and Green Lantern following him through the opening he and Darkseid’s son had just created. But J’onn was not happy or hopeful about this. Still in the powerful grip of Kalibak, J’onn could see that they had broken through a wall directly into a Parademon training facility and armory, where Darkseid’s elite shock troops prepared for war.
And the facility was both fully stocked… and fully occupied.
