03x13 - Destroyer

Post by bunniefuu »

ANNOUNCER: Previously
on Justice League Unlimited:

LUTHOR: You are
the mystic conduit

that draws cosmic
essence from the debris.

I'll be able to reconstitute
Brainiac from that energy.

Let the universe howl in
despair, for I have returned.


Superman must
suffer for k*lling me.

His adopted world
will die screaming.

We have a little problem.


Let's say, just for
the sake of argument,

that I believe a single
word of your story.

How did you survive
the expl*si*n?

By the skin of my teeth.

But stranded more than a
power ring's charge from home,

we found ourselves dependent
on the kindness of strangers.

A resident of the nearby
planet, New Genesis,

drawn by our ship's
expl*si*n, offered his help.


We accepted, of course.

You've got some nerve
coming to us for help.

Darkseid took
Brainiac away from me.

I can't hear his voice
in my head anymore.

Enough of the crazy talk, Lex.

Darkseid said he was
coming to Earth to destroy it.

You guys are supposed to
keep that from happening.

We'll do just that, lady.
Thanks for the heads up.

And what about us?

You're all going
into holding cells.

You think so? Ain't no way
we're giving up without a...

Watchtower to Metro
tower. We've got a situation.

What's going on up there?

Multiple hyperspatial

But they're planetside.
I'm sending telemetry.

Boom tubes.

He's right. Can you
hear it? Like thunder.




MR. TERRIFIC: Attention
all Justice League personnel,

this is an omega-level thr*at.

Get to the Javelins.

No time.

All members prepare
for emergency teleport.

Send us first. Give the others
a chance to get their pants on.

MR. TERRIFIC: You got it.

Okay, let's get these
people locked up.

Sounds like we've got
a fight on our hands.

If you think you're
locking us up

while the whole
world's under att*ck,

you got two fights
on your hands.

She's got a point.

We'll need all the bodies
we can throw at this.

Oh, come on! It's
Lex flipping Luthor.

Why should we trust him?

Hey, it's our world too.

Let's be clear about this.

We're not here to help
you save the world.

You're here to help me
get revenge on Darkseid.

When this is over, it's
back to business as usual.

Wouldn't have it any other way.

You get all that?

Yeah. You guys sure about this?

Trust, but verify.

Put the bad guys on
teams with regular Leaguers.

Search through the
telemetry on the att*ck groups.

Find the best
protected mother ship.

That's where Darkseid will be.

And that's where I want to go.

I imagine so.
It's in Metropolis,

hovering over the
Daily Planet. Stand by.




Back off.

Was there a plan here?

Take out the small fry

until we attract the
big fish's attention.



With everything going on,

I'll bet he never notices us.

You're on.

I'll take some of that action.

I hope you appreciate, Kal-El,

that everything that happens
from this point is on your head.

The skies will rain
f*re, the oceans will boil,

the streets will run red
with the blood of billions.

Only then, after your last
pitiful hope is extinguished,

will I end your life.

Let's go.



You destroyed Brainiac and
I'm going to make you pay.




I'm more powerful
than I've ever been.

And the last time we met,

you barely managed
to hold your own.

Funny, that's not
how I remember it.

Allow me to refresh your memory.










I have to go help.

I know.

Find shelter. I'll be
back as soon as I can.

Blue Devil got me close
enough to get a good look.

Those big burrowing
machines are magma tappers.

At least now we know
what they're trying to do.

The invaders are setting
up drilling machines

to tap the heat at
the Earth's core.

They're trying
to create f*re pits.

If they succeed, it's
apocalypse on Earth.

They won't succeed.

Your primary targets
are those drills.

Destroy them at all costs.

You heard the
man. Rock and roll.


Looks like the main
power coupling.

Cover my backside.







out of here. It's gonna blow!


We gotta find a way
to take this out for good.

Why don't you just
throw it into the sun?

Yeah, I guess that
was a pretty stupid idea.

No, maybe you're
on to something.

But I'll need more
leverage, and a trench.

On it.

Now what?

Oh, cool.

Doesn't look like it quite
made escape velocity.


Good effort, though.

Don't leave us yet, Kal-El.

I want you to see your adopted
home world bow down before me.

Only then will I allow
you death's sweet release.


Parademons, dispose
of these annoyances.


Excuse me.



Get away from
here! It's not safe!

Don't worry. I'm here to help.

I appreciate your intent...



Good to see you, Diana.

I've got a lot to
tell you about.

We'll catch up later.

Wouldn't miss it.
First things first.


Problem? I'm out.

Take my extra.

Not my style.

Suit yourself.

I'm planning to
live through this.





No one has ever
avoided my Omega Beam.

I wonder if the
other one is as agile.

Excellent strategy.


Your friends have abandoned you

or fallen before my might.

Super or otherwise,

you're merely a man

and I am a god.



You, Metron.

You knew this was
going to happen.

This outcome was the
most likely possible result

of your foolhardy actions.

You can help me. I
demand that you help me!

You are in no position to
make demands of anyone.

I warned you that you
were dabbling in forces

beyond your comprehension.

You'd be surprised
what I can comprehend.

For instance, if you know
so much about Darkseid,

I'll wager you know
how to b*at him.

There is one possibility.

One thing in all the
universe that might...

But no. The risk is...

I know a little something
about risk myself.

Care for an object lesson?

Very well.

I will take you
where you want to go.


You still try to fight?

Can't you see
that it's hopeless?

That man won't quit as long
as he can still draw a breath.

None of my teammates will.

Me, I've got a
different problem.

SUPERMAN: I feel like I live
in a world made of cardboard.

Always taking constant
care not to break something.

To break someone.

Never allowing
myself to lose control

even for a moment,
or someone could die.

SUPERMAN: But you can take it,

can't you, big man?

What we have here
is a rare opportunity

for me to cut loose and show you

just how powerful I really am.



Had enough?

Not quite yet.


It's called the Agony Matrix.

Direct neural stimulation
of pain receptors.

All of them.

Imagine the worst pain

you've ever felt in your
life times a thousand.

Now imagine that
pain continuing forever.

Oh, that's right.

You don't have to imagine.

METRON: Behold the Source Wall.

Behind it is the single
greatest secret of the universe.

This is as far as I dare to go.

I warn you one final time.

Only a 12th-level intellect
has the slightest hope

of surviving what you
are about to experience.

Then I'm overqualified.




Still alive. You
impress me, Kryptonian.

More, your valor
has touched my heart.

Oh, yes, there is still
some small part of me

that knows mercy.

I will end your pain

with something special I've
been saving for just this occasion.

I'm going to carve
out your heart

and put it on a pike
in my throne room.

As much as I'd
enjoy seeing that,

first you've got some
business with me.

Sorry it took me so long.

I had to go get my power suit.

You would dare
challenge me? Insanity.

Oh, I'm not here to
challenge you, Darkseid.

Quite the contrary.

I've got something you want.

The only thing you want.

The Anti-Life Equation.

My gift to you.

Lex, don't!

It's too late.

It's beautiful, isn't it?

Yes. Yes, it is.



has been the scene

all over the world.

In the wake of
Darkseid's defeat,

his attacking forces
have withdrawn

presumably back to
wherever it is they came from.

Thanks to Luthor, of all people.

In many ways, Lex
Luthor represents

the worst mankind has to offer.

But he died saving us all.

I doubt that either
of them died.

We saw it this time.

You saw it last time too.

What's the old saying?

Believe half of what you see...

And none of what you hear.

They'll be back.

And we'll be ready for them.

Meanwhile, it's past time

that Luthor's partners
in crime were locked up.

Wait a minute.

We helped you
guys save the world

and we don't even
get any consideration?

BATMAN: You're right.

Five minute head start.

Five minutes? Are you kidding?

Four minutes, 50 seconds.


I should be back
in time for dinner.

I love you too.

These are the end times.

A head start?

You're getting
soft in your old age.

Don't you have a tall
building to go leap?

And the adventure continues.
