The intergalactic overlord, Darkseid, known for his desire to conquer worlds, has his eyes set on the defenseless Earth. He prepares to send his forces to invade Earth and bring it under his command. Bruce Wayne/Batman has a premonition of this oncoming war and decides to build a team of superheroes to protect Earth from Darkseid’s invasion.

The duo then recruits Barry Allen, a young man whose connection to the speed force makes him the fastest man alive; Victor Stone/Cyborg, a youngster struggling to find his place in the world after an accident left him more machine than human; and the reluctant Atlantian warrior Arthur Curry/Aquaman.
