As Neron, Lord of Hell, plots and schemes, an angel falls, in a ball of flame, into San Francisco Bay. The Martian Manhunter calls in an alarm as he goes to investigate, but the Flash gets trapped in a malfunctioning teleporter and without the teleporter, Superman is stuck on the moon.

Back in Frisco, J'onn meets the angel, Zauriel, who requested to be made mortal. But other angels, in the service of very bad and very powerful angel Asmodel, attack--they are handled with little difficulty, but Neron, who is responsible for the malfunctioning teleporter on the moon, lets a couple of demons start pushing the moon into the earth. And Asmodel is preparing to visit earth in his giant chariot/spaceship to kick-start the Apocalypse...

Cool Moments!
Aquaman mistaking Zauriel for ex-Leaguer Hawkman.
