started rereading it
>An adventurer notices a space-ship flying above, and checks it out, becoming Hawkman.
>Hawkman stumbles upon a group of immortals, with one of them wielding a metal dagger.
>They take this dagger, and create a group to challenge the unknown, exploring the world and figuring out its mysteries.
>The dagger is imbued with the power of Shazam, and Talia al Ghul manages to get her hands on it after 20+ years, after Hawkman and Hawkgirl blow up their HQ with it, unleashing a giant red creature.
>They also have a spy network, but all the spies end up dead.
>Joker kills Batman. Batman kills Joker.
>Both of them fall into a puddle of dionesium, reviving them.
>Batman has nth metal in his skull, letting him see versions of himself dying over and over again.
>He learns that the Court of Owls use metal to live forever, also.
>Plastic Man is in a big egg and Bruce wants to wake him up to resolve this.
>He builds 15 research stations to try to figure out just what’s going on on with this metal, and finds it in the core of the Earth.
>The nth metal is a conductor, so he uses it in the Anti Monitor Corpse Tower as a compass to look into the dark multiverse, but finds nothing.
>Green Lantern gets sent to the Batcave to see what the Hell is going on, and it turns out Batman has been keeping the Joker in there the entire time.
>He’s there to destroy the machine, because his retardation power gives him the ability to see into retarded plans and antics.
