Events for the First War
While there was not a great reason that the war began between the DC villains and the Non-Disney Villains, it started as a faux plot, devised by neutral figures on purpose to alleviate their indolence, and take action on becoming involved in any kind of war. Particularly, the imp Bat-Mite (having his favourite television series, revolving around Batman, cancelled, as it was broadcast) summoned the dimensional entity Discord, as the two of them began to work on sorts of plot to put the DC villains into a conflict with other dark forces, mainly comprised by the Non-Disney Villains. Thus, the new war began to unfold, behind those events.
In the deepest parts of Tartarus, the goddess of Discord, Eris, set her sights on Hades, the ruler of the infernal realm, desiring to take him on for control over the Underworld kingdom. The god of the Underworld did not hesitate to fight back, as he summoned a group of skeleton warriors, to his aid. Eris effortlessly destroyed his skeleton army, and proceeded to summon a portal, that sucked Hades into an unknown destination.
Elsewhere, in a secret facility, operated by the Light, a mysterious organization, Klarion the Witch Boy, one of the newest members of the group was dispatched to track down a powerful magical crystal, located in the mortal world, as the item was needed for the group's goals. He eventually managed to find it, though he also met another figure, who was also after the crystal itself: the Russian mystic Rasputin. In spite of Rasputin's attacks, he was helpless as the demon boy deflected most of his shots and managed to drain away his lifeforce, reducing him to a skeleton, in the process. Klarion then proceeded to collect the crystal and delivered it to the Light.
In ancient Camelot, a new powerful sorceress, known as Morgaine Le Fay, rose up as the rightful ruler of the kingdom. In the proceedings, she banished the former Knight of the Round Table Ruber, from her kingdom, after his previous misdeeds against her. However, the rogue knight had other plans, and conspired with fellow sorcerer, Rothbart, forming a partnership between the two. The two villains then made their way to Camelot, to challenge the new queen. The two villains, combined, managed to destroy their adversary, with all of their mighty power. However, in a surprising twist, Morgaine revealed herself to the party, having faked her death as a ploy. She then used her magic to open a time portal, sucking the two villains away. On the other side of the portal, Ruber and Rothbart found themselves in the modern era, where they settled for new methods and approaches into the new world.
In the dangerous alleys of Gotham City, the Penguin, one of the most powerful criminal leaders, recruited Roman Torchwick, and his partner-in-crime Neopolitan, to strike against his rival, Black Mask. The two met their rival, as Mask was in the middle of an arms deal, before he was interrupted by the arrival of the two hitmen. Sensing their intentions on stopping him, Black Mask shot at Torchwick with one of his guns, only for Neopolitan to parry his attacks with the use of her special umbrella. Mask then sicced his own men, against the two hitmen, only to be bested by them one by one. Torchwick then turned his sights on Mask, shooting with an incendiary round, directly into Mask's face, burning Mask's skull mask onto his skin. As the two hitmen fled with Mask's money, Mask took the opportunity to escape.
In space, at the Kryptonite mines, operated by Lex Luthor, another criminal leader, the two miners, Tyler and Jefferson began their work of digging, as part of their employer's demands. They were interrupted by the arrival of Livewire, a powerful elemental figure sent by her mysterious employer to gather some of the radioactive mineral for herself, as part of her vendetta against Superman. She attacked and killed the two miners in her way, but her powers interacted with the kryptonite in such a way to give one of the miners, Tyler, regenerative abilities, that allowed him to heal from her assault. Taking a jackhammer, Tyler busted open a water main, spraying Livewire and causing her to short-circuit. Livewire's employer revealed himself, as Mok Swagger made his way into the mine, having witnessed the whole fight behind the shadows. Intrigued by Tyler's newfound powers, he proposed to take him as a new partner. Tyler, seeing potential in Mok's schemes, agreed and departed with Mok, leaving Livewire behind.
At the planet Apokolips, the ruler and god of the planet Darkseid got attacked by Flogg and his armada of mutants, as he prepared the invasion to kill the dark god to take his place as the planet's new ruler. However, Darkseid proved quite the strong challenge, defeating Flogg with ease. Though, he survived due to the intervention of the sorcerer Skeletor, Darkseid still made his move against the two villains, fighting them at once, eventually driving them off his planet. At the end of the battle, Skeletor revealed himself to Flogg and departed, along with the mutant captain, and his mutant army.
At the lost city of Atlantis, the terrorrist mastermind El Supremo, and his wife and partner Messina, led a submarine invasion force to the city, hoping to exploit the city's resources . He started his conquest, by bombing the city's perimeters, killing many innocent civillians in the process. With El Supremo focused on the bombardment, Messina left her husband's command sub to take on a platoon of Atlantean Soldiers sent to stop them. Immune to the soldiers' weapons, Messina used her sorcery to summon a whirlpool, decimating the Atlanteans' ranks. The invasion led to victory, as Supremo began to plunder the city's resources for himself.
At a luxurious household, operated by Carmine Falcone, another powerful criminal leader, the mobster hosted a party with several of his personal guests, regarding Roman Torchwick's attack on Black Mask. However, the night was crashed, as the anti-hero Red Hood invaded the household. However, rather than attacking them directly, he warned Falcone and his guests about the series of events that would soon unfold.
Meanwhile, in CADMUS' secret bunker, several associates, including the government agents Kent Mansley, Amanda Waller, Bishop, and Alpha, and the scientists Hugo Strange, and Dr. Sivana, had been assembled, as they discussed a new threat that might stand up against them in the near future. Particularly, Kent Mansley revealed bit of information, regarding a "meteor crash", that happened the previous day. He concluded that this was not a normal "meteor crash" they were about to deal with, but a serious menace.
Elsewhere in a secret facility, Baxter Stockman forged a partnership with fellow villain, Mark Desmond. Together, they managed to develop a super soldier formula. Matters got worse when Desmond discovered Stockman's secret project, containing several skeletons in his closet. The scientist then started to turn on Stockman and threatened him in the process.
In space, Mok and Tyler unleashed the lethal virus Thrax to serve Mok under his wing.
After the failed assault on the planet Apokolips, Flogg expressed his frustration about his defeat, as well as declaring his vengeance against Darkseid. Skeletor, now Flogg's chief advisory, stated that the fight was just a ploy and that it would eventually lead them to their victory.
In the farther regions of the globe, the rogue criminal Valmont met with Ra's Al Ghul, a powerful warrior. Ra's Al Ghul delivered him the statue of Shendu, as he tasked the criminal to free the demon sorcerer from his imprisonment with the use of special Talismans.
Elsewhere, the demon Trigon approached Rasputin, still in his reduced skeletal form. The mystic reluctantly struck a deal with the demon, with Trigon offering a magical reliquary to Rasputin that boosted his powers and gave him back his former humanity.
At Apokolips, Darkseid welcomed his ally, as Kal-El made his way to Darkseid's headquarters, having been informed about Flogg's offensive against his ally, and joined forces with the Apokolips ruler in his next conquest.
And in the city of Atlantis, the aftermath of El Supremo's assault resulted in the destruction of the underwater kingdom, now mostly buried in ruins, as well as the death of it's king. The Atlanteans swore revenge against the outside world, with Ocean Master leading the now dissarayed Atlantean troopers to the surface.
Gods and Monsters
In the Underworld, now controlled by Eris, and joined by Dionysus as her new regent, the god of war Ares approached the new rulers and he secretly joined their league. However, he requested he be released from Zeus' shackles, a sign that he was bound to the king of the gods. Eris accepted the offer on the condition that Ares retrieve the Book of Peace, an item needed for Eris' next plots. Ares accepted, delighting the two gods, as they released him from his shackles, free to serve his own will.
As part of his conquest, the Ocean Master delegated his chief ambassador, the Black Manta, on a mission to Egypt, requesting the Pharaoh Rameses, surrender his kingdom to the Atlantean fleet. The arrogant pharaoh refused, leading to a full confrontation between both armies on the opposite sides of the River Nile. When the Egyptian soldiers approached, the Ocean Master used his mystic powers to separate the waters of the river in two directions, creating an opening. Both of the armies advanced . However, just as the Egyptian soldiers got close to the Atlantean crew, the Ocean Master revealed his trump card as he used his mystic powers bring down the waters of the River Nile, sweeping away most of the Egyptian soldiers. The Atlantean soldiers, beneath the water, then slaughtered the drowning Egyptians, a horrified action seen on the surface by Rameses and the remain Egyptian survivors.
In the city of Baghdad, Black Adam infiltrated the Golden Land to steal the three golden balls, that protect the city on orders of an unknown benefactor. However, he was anticipated by Zigzag, the city's chief adviser and wizard, provoking the super villain to take the golden balls by force. Zigzag blasted his foe with lightning bolts, only for Adam to parry his attacks. Black Adam then waited for the wizard to drop his guard, allowing him to summon a magical sphere, that evaporated Zigzag's illusions. He then stunned the wizard, with some powerful blasts. Beaten severely, Zigzag used a whip to stop his foe's attacks, while at the same time he used all of his might to knock Adam into some of the city's walls, weakening him. He then crafted a portal and blasted Adam into it, sucking him to another section of the world.
In space, Mok had Thrax infiltrate a room, containing the genetic code and material of General Zod. The code was required for Mok's plans. However, the malevolent Parasite obtained it first, forcing the two of them to fight over it. When Parasite tried to punch his foe, Thrax easily caught his punch and knocked him out. He then tried to stun the virus with his eye beams. However, Thrax easily stopped his attacks by defusing a grenade and tossing it at his foe. The resulting explosion and surrounding flames stunned the inter-galactic being, draining him of energy, causing him to faint in the process, allowing Thrax to obtain the sample, who in return gave it to Mok.
Under Darkseid's command, Kal-El led the galactic Parademon troops into an all assault against Zygon and his armanda. He advanced towards Zygon's compound, destroying most of Zygon's droids in the process. Zygon then stepped forward to deal with Kal-El personally. However he was helpless, as Kal-El easily hacked him to pieces. He then proceeded to annihilate the entire compound, destroying the entire armada completely.
At a secret facility at CADMUS, Alpha met with a new addition to the staff, the scientist Dr. Kirk Langstrom. The scientist then revealed the reason for his research on science, as his family, primarily his daughter, Carly, drove him to find new approaches to cure them, unbeknownst to him, Alpha was secretly using the information he gave to him for his own advantage.
In another room in the same zone, Bishop stumbled upon some secret and private documents, regarding the research of the scientist Victor Fries. He learned about the scientist's explanation on the treatment, for his ill wife, Nora, who was put into a cryogenic chamber. At the same time, Victor Fries insisted that he found a way of achieving immortality, a detail Bishop kept in mind for future plans.
In CADMUS' base, Kent Mansley's suspicions proved to be true as the "meteor crash" was revealed to be an extraterrestrial being, known as Brainiac, who proceeded to lay waste on Earth. To that end, Amanda Waller sent Kent Mansley to apprehend the alien and bring him back to the base. The following morning, Kent Mansley confronted Brainiac, with the army of the United States at his disposal. Yet they were no match for Brainiac as he effortlessly destroyed several tanks and a missile, much to the shock of the others, including General Rogard. He then demonstrated his might, by summoning a deadly blast, that exploded a thousand miles away, from their position, forcing Mansley and his army to retreat.
At Lex Corps, Lex Luthor had found out that several of his personal documents had been stolen. He became suspicious about his new employee, who revealed himself to be Zartan, an agent of Cobra Commander, and the person who delivered all of the stolen documents to Cobra.

At a local museum in Gotham City, the dashing anti-hero Selina Kyle, posing as Catwoman, infiltrated the exhibition gallery where she found a magical talisman in a glass protection case which was required for her benefactor's next plots. Suddenly, she was ambushed by the Dark Hand, a group of mercenaries led by Valmont, who was also after the talisman. As soon as Catwoman broke through the glass and stole the talisman, a fight began, as the Dark Hand's henchmen attempted to steal the artifact from her possession, only for the thief to counter most of her foes' attacks, knocking them back. Just as one of the Dark Hand's lackeys managed to break her guard, a crew of police officers arrived on the scene, forcing the Dark Hand to retreat. As for Catwoman, she easily sneaked away from the crime scene, driving the police officers into confusion.
In a deserted parking lot in Gotham City, the minor criminal Joe Chill attempted to run for his life, as he was pursued by the enigmatic Black Knight, after he stole a valuable item from her. Despite his efforts, he was caught by Black Knight, forcing him to fight. Joe attempted to gun her down, only for the woman to disarm him. He then attempted to flee, not wanting to risk his life any further. However, Knight caught up to him, using her specialized whip to destroy a section of the building's ceiling, above Joe, burying him in rumbles. She left him dying in the rubble as she retrieved the artifact.
After Zartan's confession and capture, Lex Luthor transmitted a message to Cobra Commander and Destro, threatening his two adversaries, and warning them about their next move against him. Cobra Commander was unconvinced, as he put his next plan into motion. Following their failure to acquire the magical talisman, Shendu punished the Dark Hand followers, and demanded that he would not tolerate another humiliation and disgrace.
Meanwhile, in another region, Selina Kyle handed the magical talisman to her associate, Talia al Ghul, daughter of the inter-national warrior Ra's Al Ghul, thus succeeding in her mission.

In a mysterious location, Klarion the Witch Boy forged an alliance with the cultist woman Cinder Fall, hoping that her assistance would help him in his journey to the mortal world. Elsewhere, Ruber and Rothbart's team got a new addition, as the sorceress Circe joined their ranks, as she took an interest in both villains.
Bitter after his battle with Zigzag, Black Adam was found by Ares, who had learned about his previous fight. Instead of punishing him, Ares decided to delegate his mission, on getting the Book of Peace to Adam, as a means to redeem himself from his previous humiliation. Meanwhile in Egypt, Rameses returned to his palace, deprived of his Egyptian army. Just then, he was approached by Zigzag, now ambassador of the One-Eyes, led by King One-Eye, who granted an audience with the fallen pharaoh. Zigzag then proposed Rameses join forces with the One-Eyes, to rebuild his strength, after the Ocean Master's assault. Rameses reluctantly accepted his offer, as a means to defend his kingdom from upcoming attacks.
