(Plot-line Spoilers from here on in)
What we have seen so far:
The first part of this will be detailed as it is key to developing the premise of the plot line.
The story begins with Superman and Lois Lane. They are both resting in bed when Lois receives an anonymous call tipping her that there a payoff talking place at the docks. Superman also senses that there is something bad going on in Metropolis. After a discussion about safety they part ways. Enter Batman who is on his way to Starlabs after something sensitive was taken. After Batman takes down a few thugs he and Superman hangout. During this time Joker arrives at the docks where Jimmy and Lois are hiding waiting to capture the payoff on camera. Joker draped in a hat and trench coat kills Jimmy and then reveals himself to Lois before kidnapping her.
Wonderwoman arrives first at the docks and catches a worker who reveals the Joker and Harley Quinn are in a submarine. Superman brings the submarine onto land and discovers Harley and Joker operating on Lois. Enter Doomsday (a villain who kills Superman in a previous comic line)who Superman drags off in order to protect Lois. Unknowingly Superman has now inhaled Joker's new toxin.
At this point Joker and Harley try to make a get away but are stopped by Green Lantern. Joker begins to taunt Batman with his usual rhetoric. The Joker then reveals that he has implanted a trigger to a bomb beside Lois' heart. When her heart stops it will trigger a nuclear blast in Metropolis. We also learn at this point that Scarecrow has created a fear toxin that releases Kryptonite directly into Superman's lung bloodstream through his lungs. Its at this point Batman remotely contacts Superman who is dragging Doomsday into space. Batman informs him that he has ingested the fear toxin and may be subject to seeing things that aren't there. It is at this point that Superman realizes he is hearing two heart beats and what he thought was Doomsday is really Lois who is pregnant with his child. Lois' heart stops. The comic cuts over to a close up of Joker who mocks the situation stating "Boom" We see Metropolis from a distance now incinerated by the bomb. The Joker has finally done it. Metropolis is no more!
The story continues with Batman interrogating Joker on why he has turned his attention to Superman. His (Joker's) reason being he is tired of losing and has become bored of losing. He wants to do something new and so he has turned to corrupting Superman. During this time the Justice League is trying to find survivors and round them up. Wonderwoman finds Superman and tries to comfort him. Superman leaves the body of Lois in her care and heads out to find Joker. He encounters Green Lantern while flying who tries to talk to him. Superman isn't in the mood to talk forcing Green Lantern to trap him in a bubble. Trying to reason with him Superman breaks free of Green Lantern and takes his ring. After taking Green Lantern to the ground Superman destroys the ring. Meanwhile Batman is still talking with Joker when Superman flies through the prison brick wall, grabs the Joker and puts his arm through his chest. Batman is horrified!
The story cuts over to Harley who having learnt of the Joker's murder escapes the prison she is in. Enter Green Arrow.. there is a small scuffle and then he leaves with Harley trapped in his net. Harley thinks she is being brought to Superman, who Green Arrow is trying to protect her from as he doesn't believe "in executions" It is here we are starting to see some preludes to the team ups that will be appearing in the game. Following the reports of what has transpired in Metropolis and the Death of the Joker, Superman after hearing a news report of a war overseas declares "No more" and goes to capture the dictator in charge. Wonderwoman appears questioning him and whether he will address the world. Superman then addresses the United Nations stating the Justice League has failed the world. He then reveals his identity as Clark Kent and declares open war on anyone who takes innocent lives calling for an 'immediate world-wide ceasefire'

I realized looking back at my blog posts from the first year of Bloggin Blodgett that I haven't done much cooking over the last year and I think I may have to get back to the kitchen once I finish my renovations and move. Definitely on the agenda for the summer but for now pictures will have to suffice.
