Synopsis for "Part Three: Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue"
Fire (Beatriz Da Costa) returns to her Checkmate and demands to know why she has been dismissed from their service. A stand-off between Fire and Castle security is ended when Black King (Taleb Beni Khalid) tells Fire that she was fired for failing her psychological exam, for claiming that an imagined person was working against her. He raises the issue of her mother’s mental history, the implication is that Fire has inherited her mother’s problems. Fire is silent until she spots Max’s smug face looking out from the Castle. She jumps into her flame form and barrages through the Castle’s security until she thinks she has her hands on Max. However, it’s another of his illusions and she is actually injuring an innocent Checkmate guard. The other guards think she has gone rogue and are told to shoot to kill. She flees, but Talib orders the guards not to pursue her. He has decided escalate this matter to the Justice League. In El Paso, Texas the other ex-JLI members Captain Atom, Ice, Booster Gold and his robot Skeets have tracked a signal to the home of the current Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes). He and his family are under attack from OMACs, innocent people turned into faceless killing machines by a nano-machine virus. Ice suggests they withdraw with Jaime, but Atom says that would only endanger more civilians. However, they are forced to change their tactics when dozens more OMACs appear out of a teleport gateway. The heroes are surrounded until the Jaime’s Scarab suggests they use magnetism to hold the metal OMACs at bay. Thwarted, the OMACs start to teleport away and Jaime says he has to drop his magnetic field or get he will be sucked along with them. Booster yells at him to maintain it and throws his force field around Jaime and the other heroes. Ice’s objections fall on deaf ears as they are all sucked into the teleport vortex. The vortex drops them, minus the OMACs, in a forest outside of St Petersburg, Russia. Jaime has no knowledge of Maxwell Lord, but the artificial intelligence in his Scarab does remember. The signal they had chased to El Paso had been the personal beacon of the previous Blue Beetle, Ted Kord, but it hadn’t come from Jaime. It was a signal that was trying to hack into his suit, but it bounced off and was detected by Skeets. Jaime is resigning himself to being stuck with the others when they suddenly attacked by a squad of Rocket Reds. They’re leader tells the Americans “Move and you will Die!”
