The Flash is defeated. Green Lantern is in the clutches of Locus, a psychotic teenaged girl with the powers of God. Meanwhile Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman have been banished to a planetwide penal colony.
Before the team can figure out what happened to their memories, Cadmus sends some seemingly familiar faces into the darkness of Commonwealth space to face off against the first member of a new group of villains called Locus.
What are Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Green Lantern doing in the year 3000? And who (or what) brought them there? Are these the same World's Greatest Heroes from times past? Answers and questions both arise as a new adventure begins.
