A Kate Todd from the Challengers of the Unknown gets abducted by Harbinger, putting her boss and team in panic mode; we learn the backstory of Batwoman and Superwoman; more superheroic Kates are transported to The Auditorium.
Green Lantern meets her Challengers of the Unknown counterpart, and discuss the other Kates and Harbinger’s plans; Harbinger meets with the Monitor; Challenger Kate’s team prepares to search for her.
The Challengers set off to find their own Kate - and come across a ship like none they’ve encountered before in orbit around an alternate Earth; on that ship, Superwoman, Batwoman and Green Lantern discuss the possible threats they’ve been gathered to fight. On the other side of that Earth, a group of villains gather - one resembling Kate, all others Ari Haswari. And in Lantern’s home reality, her JLA teammates prepare to search for her.
Ari Luthor and Superwoman Katelyn discuss their plans for taking on Darkseid, and Katelyn considers her feelings for Luthor; Gibbs is ordered by Jenny to pull the Challengers' ship away from the Carrier; and the Kates prepare for a collision.
The Challengers' ship, the Shannon and Kelly, is breached by an unknown, potentially hostile humanoid as the ship zips through the Carrier.
With their ship having crashed into the Carrier’s auditorium, the Challengers reunite with one of their own - and meet the other super hero Kates assembled there.
Meet the latest group of allies Harbinger has recruited for the Kates - Justice League Los Angeles from one Earth, and from another the Healers, a medical team led by Dr. Maura Isles and supported by a special ops team that includes a certain tomboyish Red Sox fan and a powerful anthropomorphic tortoise.
Justice League Los Angeles - with help from Dr. Isles, her team of Healers and their special operations allies - try to take down the Chameleon while protecting Harbinger.
Justice League Los Angeles and the Healers arrive on the Carrier, but their arrival is overshadowed by grave news about Harbinger; the Crime Syndicate gets onto the Dark Carrier, while Kalel uncovers a similar method that could get he, Superwoman's cousin Superman and Green Lantern's Justice League onto the Carrier.
As Tim McGee (Challengers of the Unknown) and Eric Beale (Justice League Los Angeles) examine Harbinger's personal handheld computer, they uncover a list of alternate universes where they and the Kates - and the Aris - hail from.
The Syndicate meets its first member of Dark Harbinger's team, while a couple of Kates secretly held captive aboard the Dark Carrier escape.
