"This is getting entirely out of hand," thinks Elijah, looking out at the massive property damage that was, thankfully, the only real casualty of the skirmish. "The Great Ten. The Martian Manhunter. Lex Fucking Luthor. Superman." He had barely gotten used to having Freeman along, but now he's got his very own Justice League.

"No," he says under his breath. "Not a Justice League ... a Justice Society."

He remembers Bastet's  warning: You must reforge the circle. Only the Justice Society can train the next generation of heroes to defeat the darkness.

With the Great Ten and whatever it was controlling them defeated, Elijah decides it's time to get back to the mission Bastet set them  on: Gathering the Children of the Century. He throws Freeman a look ... he's the only one who can back up the story, who knows what the stakes are. More importantly, he's the only one they'll listen to.

"Gentlemen," he says to Superman and the others, mustering what Old Man gravitas he has. "My name is Elijah Snow. I represent the Planetary Foundation, and it's imperative that Ms. Quantum come with us. The fate of the world's at stake."

Wow, he thinks.  Maybe superhero dialog is contagious.

Luthor has been running a diagnostic scan on the unconscious members of the Great Ten, while simultaneously talking to Chinese authorities.

"Superman," he says, "Beijing apologizes for ... whatever this was ... and is acquiring clearance to send someone to collect them. They seemed to believe our assertion that they were being controlled."

He then registers what Elijah just said.

"The Planetary Foundation?" he says, quizzically at Superman. "The organization that makes the Planetary Guides? I own one."

Elijah raises an eyebrow at that.

Which year?" he asks, coolly.

"1938. It's actually what lead Superman and myself here, indirectly at least. We wanted to speak to Ms. Quantum about Stormwatch, and the death of John Cumberland. her previous incarnation, Jenny Sparks, was there."

Superman crosses his arms, listening for now. If Luthor's right this IS one of the men who helped kill his...other self?...after all, and that's not thrilling. He nods greatfully at Luthor for checking in with Beijing, the last thing they needed was an international incident. "I'm glad they're seeing reason."

It's weird, how he KNOWS he's fought Socialist Guardsman before despite that not being in the history books.

On the other hand, Jenny is asking questions instead of immediately going with him, which is good. The last thing they need is the kid mind controlled or otherwise influenced by this Snowman guy.

"Do you have any idea who, or why, Mister Snow?" Superman asks after a moment.

J'onn looked up. "I can detect no trace of the foreign domination remaining in the Great Ten's minds. But I cannot guarantee he... or she... will not attempt to control them again."

He frowned. "The mind I touched was somehow familiar. But I do not know how reliable my own memories are anymore."

Well, that got his attention. Superman's first thought is 'of course not' and then thinking over the two or three horrific alternate Leagues that would be capable of murder on that scale.

Man today's just all about morally ambiguous men telling him how dangerous he is because of an alternate universe.

"Perhaps you could go into more detail, Mister Snow?"

"Yes," says Lex. "I'd like to hear more about that, myself."

There's something icy in Lex's voice as he says it. It's obvious he's pondering something.

"I'm not interested in killing anyone." Superman says, a bit coldly, "And I'm not the one that build a satellite designed to kill Kryptonians. I'm not thrilled by the existence of your little conspiracy either, Snow, to be completely frank, and I'm concerned about what other deadly technology designed to kill my family or friends has leaked out to people. I've seen a lot of men with setups like yours talking about shepherding when they mean 'indoctrination'."

He looks at Jenny Quantum. "But it's not my call. Where do YOU want to go, Ms. Quantum?"

"I couldn't agree more," says Lex, who's been uncharacteristically quiet for most of this. "And I think I've found the likely next target."

He projects a holographic image of two African teenagers, a boy and a girl.

"Baako and Vaada Achebe," he says. "Baako was born at the stroke of midnight, Ghana local time, at the start of the year 2000. He's been building high tech machinery to provide for his village since he was a child. His sister was born a few minutes afterward, so she's probably not one of your Century Children, but she speaks a dozen languages, so ... who knows?"

"We've a number of mysteries then," J'onn said. "And Ms. Quantum is quite correct. Doctor Manhattan's manipulations of the fabric of time and reality have left us unusually vulnerable."

He closed his eyes for a moment. "We are being pulled in many directions. I fear we will have to submit to that pull and divide our forces."

"So where to?" Superman raises an eyebrow at the eye contact.

He supposes he ultimately isn't surprised, this is how these situations usually work out. It would've been nice for her to answer her question instead of just imply he's the only one rattling a saber here, but ultimately he has a job to do.

"And do you have any other potential century children identified, Luthor?" Of course he does.

"Of course I do," he replies. "I've got a computer scan set for children that were born at or near the stroke of midnight at the tune of the millennium. Maybe two-dozen, worldwide, but if we look for ones who've exhibited fantastic abilities, we find ... huh."

He hears Eljah tell someone on the phone "Mexico City," and looks up.

"That's exactly right," he says. "A teenage pop star. Valentina Cazador. The one with that annoying song that's everywhere."

"They took Black Adam. I've worked with him. He's one of the most powerful people on the planet. Up there with ..." he crooks his head toward Superman. "...that one. Who on earth can just take him?"
