The start of the second seasons after months and months of delays, anticipation and reruns, Cartoon Network finally aired the second season of Justice League. Granted they only showed us two episodes in July and are cruelly making us wait until October for the rest of the season, but if the rest of the season is anything like Twilight, I'm willing to wait that long.
Twilight begins with Darkseid attempting to find the solution to the anti-life equation. Steppenwolf reports that Apokolips' Starfleet has been attacked for venturing into New Genesis' space. Orion interrupts Steppenwolf and taunts Darkseid. He sends one of Darkseid's ships through a boom tube aimed directly at Darkseid's palace. After the wreckage, Darkseid sees a new ship approaching Apokolips. On the Watchtower the League is having a discussion when suddenly Darkseid arrives in a Boom Tube. He claims that Brainiac is attacking Apokolips and that he needs the League helps. Superman refuses to help him, but the rest of the League disagree and convince Superman to go.
Hawkgirl, Superman, and Martian Manhunter head to Apokolips to help Darkseid, while Wonder Woman and Batman head to New Genesis to enlist Orion's help. On Apokolips, the League stops Braniaic, but he gets away. They chase him to an asteroid that looks suspiciously like Darkseid's face. The League rushes after Brainiac, and Brainiac reveals his plans to capture Superman. Meanwhile, Batman and Superman ask for High father's help, but High father says he has to contact the Source as to whether or not to meddle with Darkseid's affairs. Back in Brainiac's lair, it's revealed that Darkseid double crossed the League, and gave Superman to Braniaic in exchange for the safety of his planet. Unsurprisingly, Darkseid then betrays Brainiac, and takes control of his computers. Darkseid plans to use Braniaic's technology to destroy the universe and remake it in his image.
As the League and a Darkseid controlled Braniaic battle, Orion, Batman and Wonder Woman arrive and join the fight. They manage to stop Darkseid from destroying the universe, but can't stop Brainiac's lair from exploding. Orion battles Darkseid while the rest of the League escapes. At the last minute, Superman turns around to find Darkseid. He confronts Darkseid just as Orion falls, and the two battles. Superman wins, but just as he is about to finish Darkseid off. Batman stops him, and opens a boom tube, leaving Darkseid and Brainiac to die in the explosion.
