Week 9, Day 1.
Steel crashes Luthor's party in search of Natasha Irons, his niece. When Steel attacks Luthor, Luthor's very own superhero team comes to his rescue. Natasha is among the six members of the team, and throws her uncle off Luthor. Natasha then punches Steel through a window and fights him on the ground below, revealing her newly created superpowers. Steel tries to talk some sense into Natasha and tell her that she is a fool to think that Luthor would grant her powers so easily. Natasha wants none of this, and uses her powers of light to defeat her Steel, who is in his new stainless steel form.
Animal Man, Adam Strange and Starfire have been trapped and tied up or caged in a cave. They have been captured by Devilance the Pursuer, a giant hunter who is the 'god of the pursuit.' His only purpose is to hunt. Starfire realizes that the entire planet is just a trap created by Devilance. Animal Man comes up with a plan. When Adam Strange's jetpack distracts Devilance, Buddy temporarily blinds Devilance using powers absorbed from wasps, and Starfire takes away the giant hunter's lance. The three get away, but Devilance continues to pursue them. Adam Strange reasons that there has been a contract put on their lives, and that every bounty hunter in the universe is after them.
