In the next train-part, Barry is confronted by Mirror Master who confuses him by creating holograms of himself. Venturing in the next part, Barry finds that Mirror Master has an unconscious, elderly woman in what he calls his 'hostage-box'. He reveals that the box will blow up at the end of a countdown, killing the old woman unless Barry manages to save her with his super speed. Barry senses a trap but Mirror Master tells him that he has no chance but to take the risk. While trying to disarm the box, a device is drilled through Barry's arm. Mirror Master tells him that the device contains a bomb with a three mile blastradius. He also tells him that the bomb will explode should Barry attempt to remove. However, the bomb will also explode should Barry do nothing. Mirror Master warns Barry that once Barry has started running, the bomb will explode should he decelerate. Before Barry can leave, Mirror Master reveals that he too was only a hologram.

It is later revealed that all the attackers and hostages were androids and used by Sapphire to break Hal.
Metallo disguises himself as a man attempting to commit suicide. Superman is called to the scene and seemingly manages to talk the man out of shooting himself. The man then shoots Superman in the stomach, revealing that the projectile was a kryptonite bullet. He then transforms into Metallo and opens a lid in his chest, showing his kryptonite heart. Weakened from the glow and the bullet, Superman stumbles backwards and falls off the building, crashing into the pavement below.
After each member has succeeded to take down his rival, they meet back at the Hall of Doom to celebrate their victory. Savage tells them that they have succeeded in their mission but also claims that they can join in in his next plan. He warns them however that this plan is genocidal as he attempts to kill at least half of the worlds population. He then tells the Legion his backstory and how he became immortal. Cheetah does not believe him and Savage allows her to slice his throat. After falling to the ground seemingly dead, Savage gets back up. Savage then reveals to his Legion that he plans do destroy so much as to have the surviving men gather around him as the worlds new leader. He offers the Legion dominion over the world that remains - second only to Savage himself. They all agree with his plans.
After Batman, who has saved himself, Cyborg and Wonder Woman save the remaining members of the League, Batman reveals to them that the plans to take out the Justice League were made by him should one or more of the members go rogue. Unbeknownst to him, the plans had been stolen from the Batcomputer by Mirror Master, who had infiltrated the Batcave earlier. Mirror Master was not aware that the plans were unlethal however, which allowed the League to survive. The League watches surveillance footage from the night Mirror Master snuck in and track him down to the Hall of Doom.
At the Hall, Savage reveals to the Legion that he plans to destroy the sunward facing side of the earth with a solar flare, killing half of the population but also destroying advanced technology, allowing the Legion to reign supreme. They are interrupted by the Justice League who reveal themselves to the Legion. In the resulting battle, each hero fights his respective villain. Although the situation at first seems dire for all the heroes, they manage to prevail. Meanwhile Cyborg manages to abort the missile launch but is then stabbed in the back by Vandal Savage who kicks him down the abyss. He restarts the countdown but is attacked in turn by Cyborg. After fending him off, Savage immediately launches the rocket. Wonder Woman defeats Cheetah while the Flash knocks out Mirror Master. The rockets burst ignites Ma'alefa'ak, killing him. At the same time, Batman manages to cut Bane's Venom supply, Superman beheads Metallo with his laser vision while Green Lantern overcomes Sapphire's power and smashes her into a wall, removing the crystal from her body and rendering her normal.
Although Superman destroys most of the rocket, he misses one of the sub-rockets. Savage manages to create the solar flare he intended. While watching his success, Savage is knocked out by Wonder Woman and Cyborg. Realising that the Legion must somehow have had plans to survive the flare, the Justice League enhances the mechanism and thus foils Savage's plans after all. This also causes the destruction of the Hall of Doom which Superman lifted into otbit in order to save earth. This ultimately destroys the Legion of Doom, whose surviving members are arrested. Savage is found guilty for crimes against humanity and sentenced to life in prison.
