The league contacts Firestorm, Black Canary, Zatanna, Black Lightning, Blue Devil, Element Woman, Goldrush, Nightwing, Platinum, Vixen, and Atom electronically using Cyborg's grid, the database he has compiled of all known superheroes, and invites them to the Watchtower to discuss joining the League.
While there, Platinum, a robot designed by Doctor Will Magnus for Project Metal Men, malfunctions and attacks. The heroes take her down and send her back to Magnus.
After everyone goes home, the League is discussing the potential members and Cyborg discovers that someone hacked into their computer system during the meeting.
Mr. Bryer goes to the Vasquez home with the police and accuses Billy of wrecking his car. Billy, however, isn't home.
The news then shows Black Adam attacking the city, looking for Shazam. Freddy tells Mary, Darla, Eugene, and Pedro that Billy is Shazam and they all go out looking for him.
They find him at the zoo, talking to a tiger named Tawny. He says that if he changes back into Shazam, Black Adam will find him. Mary says he needs to transform to protect the city.
Instead, he leads them down into the subway, hoping to find the Rock of Eternity again and get the wizard to choose someone else to carry his power.
Meanwhile, Dr. Sivana gathers all of the Seven Deadly Sins.
