War with the Vermidiim is inevitable. The Justice League is doing everything it can, including training the Trotha.

Years ago, it showed Superman a life he would have had if Krypton had not exploded. This included a wife and son. Now, Black Mercy is trying to convince Batman that he deserves happiness. If the Dark Knight succumbs to the Black Mercy, the rest of the Justice League may be doomed. Wonder Woman has freed the rest of the Justice League from the Black Mercy. They, in turn liberate the parasite's other victims and return to Earth. Batman feels some shame in letting the Black Mercy get to him. Superman tells him of what he experienced with the alien plant an how he kept his feelings secret from Lois for a long time. This led to the Man of Steel dreaming of the family he had on Black Mercy's Krypton. Once he discussed this with Lois the dreams stopped. Batman may still be coming to terms with the fact that the Black Mercy may be right about him needing happiness. However, Superman tells him it showed him the very moment they have now. This leaves the Caped Crusader to ponder the possibility of hope for his life.
