- Wonder Woman: [footsteps] Any word from Clark?
- Martian Manhunter: No... That is actually the reason I called you down here, Diana. I am concerned.
- Wonder Woman: If you're concerned about Superman then I guess I am concerned as well. What is it, J'onn?
- Martian Manhunter: He informed us he was going to Gotham to answer a distress call, but for once, Gotham is quiet.
- Wonder Woman: Well, he is Superman. Maybe he heard something from across the Bay, something our sensors don't detect from orbit.
- Martian Manhunter: True, that is what I suspected at first, but while scanning Gotham, I did detect this unusual energy signature in the Narrows. [beep]
- Wonder Woman: Oh... Wow. What is that?
- Martian Manhunter: I... I do not know and when I tried to probe it telepathically, I did detect sentience, but with some difficulty.
- Wonder Woman: Sentient energy? Uh... okay. But you said it was difficult? How so? Resistance?
- Martian Manhunter: Yes, but more than that... It was as if it were a dozen or maybe a hundred different minds working in unison.
- Wonder Woman: Okay, we should dispatch a Javelin. I'll lead the team. Who is on deck tonight?
- Anti-Monitor: [cthonic crackle, mechanical breathing] Do not bother sending your machines after us. We have your Kryptonian here. [thud]
- Wonder Woman: J'onn, sound the alarm! [rapid footsteps, sword scrapping sheath, groan, cthonic crackle, cthonic blast, pained scream, thud, beep, alarm]
- Martian Manhunter: Diana! [undulating shout, Martian flesh contorting, slam, metal striking metal, mechanical breathing] Do not resist!
- Anti-Monitor: It is our nature to resist this constructed narrative and all within it. [mechanical breathing] Now, release us! [cthonic crackle]
- Martian Manhunter: [pained gasp, panicked footsteps, pained hiss] No! Keep away! Do not touch me! Gideon, activate fire suppression systems! [computer error beep]
- Superman: It's... [pained groan, stumbling footsteps] It's in your mind, J'onn. Resist it! You can- [cthonic blast, thud]
- Anti-Monitor: You are pale imitations of what we know you are capable of being! [mechanical breathing] The most powerful members of this Justice League are nothing compared to our power! [mechanical breathing] Fear not, however, we are not here to destroy you... Our quarrel is with another. We are only here to deliver a warning: [mechanical breathing] Stay out of our way. Do not side with the Monitor. If you do, we will destroy you, too.
