Superman confronts Ruin, but is overpowered. Ruin tells him that he exists to hurt the Man of Steel, but he won't kill him until he has been truly hurt, by seeing harm come to those he loves. It is obvious that Ruin knows all about Superman, as those on his list of loved ones include friends and family of Clark Kent. Superman contacts Batman and Wonder Woman to ask for their help and advice. In the midst of the conversation, Wonder Woman learns about what some of the other Justice League members did to Doctor Light, and says that they should have killed him - Doctor Light is no better than a monster. The others disagree. Batman tells Superman to think about the people that know him well - who of them could Ruin be. Superman immediately thinks of Luthor, but elsewhere, Ruin reports to Luthor, who tells him it's time to start spilling blood.
