Following his two failed attempts at taking over Earth,[N 1] Darkseid and his armies have conquered countless worlds. In response, the Justice League travel to Apokolips to bring the fight to him while the Teen Titans remain on Earth as its defense. Upon arrival, the League is attacked by Paradooms – creatures fused with Parademon and Doomsday’s DNA – which results in the heroes either being killed or enslaved by Darkseid while his forces descend on Earth and subdue the Titans, slaughtering a majority of them as well.
Two years later, Darkseid has successfully conquered Earth. Lex Luthor has become a New God representative reporting to Batman, now Darkseid’s lieutenant due to being brainwashed via the Mobius Chair, on the progress of “Reaper” devices that are mining Earth’s core. Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, Mera, Hawkman, and Starfire work as Darkseid’s newly converted mechanic Furies as he continues conquering planets. Due to his leadership, the surviving heroes on Earth blame Clark Kent for their failure. Meanwhile, Raven suffers from depression due to her father Trigon constantly attempting to escape from his magical prison and also having to deal with the loss of her team.[N 2] After Clark rescues her from her latest suicide attempt, they recruit Etrigan the Demon and John Constantine, who blames himself for letting his lover Zatanna die when he fled during the battle at Apokolips, to find Batman’s son Damian Wayne in hopes for the latter to free Batman from the Mobius Chair. Constantine locates Damian, now the leader of the League of Assassins at one of their outposts, and he reluctantly joins the heroes. Damian also reveals that he revived his adoptive brother and fellow teammate Dick Grayson, who was killed during the attack on Earth, via the Lazarus Pits, though it was unsuccessful in fully restoring his sanity, because of which he was kept locked up.
In Metropolis, Clark’s wife Lois Lane has recruited the Suicide Squad, now led by Harley Quinn following Amanda Waller’s death,[N 3] as part of her and Clark’s plan to infiltrate the LexCorp building and use its boom tube to return to Apokolips. Around the world, other heroes attempt to destroy the Reapers. While the Squad is used as a distraction, the group enters the building and confronts Luthor, who reveals he was a mole helping Lois. The group split into two with Clark’s team going to Apokolips while Lois’ team stays behind to protect the boom tube.
Batman alerts Darkseid of Luthor’s betrayal, prompting him to send his Furies to Apokolips. On Apokolips, Constantine frees Wonder Woman using her Lasso of Truth. She stays behind to liberate the other Furies from Darkseid’s control, while Constantine rescues the Flash, who has been imprisoned and forced to eternally run on a treadmill powering the planet, and Cyborg, whose body has been dismantled and repurposed as the planet’s power source. Batman and Darkseid return to Apokolips, with Darkseid ordering Batman to kill Damian. However, Batman hesitates when he is reminded of his parents’ death and breaks free from Darkseid’s control. Angered, Darkseid kills Damian which triggers Raven to lose control over Trigon thus leading to free himself from captivity. Despite Constantine offering himself as a host to defeat Darkseid, Trigon possesses Clark instead and kills Constantine.
Back at LexCorp, Lois’ team are surrounded by Paradooms, prompting them to initiate a self-destruct. Lois transmits a goodbye message to Apokolips with Cyborg’s help. Watching Lois’ sacrifice allows Superman to break free of Trigon’s grip. Meanwhile, Constantine is briefly reunited with Zatanna in the afterlife, who reveals it was part of Batman’s plan to use her magic to make Constantine flee from Apokolips during the battle. Simultaneously, Zatanna and Raven revive Constantine and Damian, with Raven confessing her love for Damian. Cyborg reveals his plan to teleport the Paradooms from Earth back to Apokolips and suck the planet into a black hole. Constantine and Raven combine their magic to give Trigon his physical form back so he can fight Darkseid while the heroes safely return to Earth. Cyborg commences his plan, dragging Apokolips, Darkseid, and Trigon into oblivion.
Despite the heroes’ victory, the Reapers’ damage is already done; one-third of the Earth’s core has been successfully mined by the machines, putting its orbit in danger of freezing or heating enough that the planet’s surface will become uninhabitable. Constantine convinces a reluctant Flash to create a second Flashpoint, after learning that he created the first while freeing him on Apokolips, to undo the destruction despite the fact that the world will not be the same as it was before. Flash runs back in time and creates a second Flashpoint. Damian and Raven share their first and last kiss, while the Justice League observes a wide bright light from beyond the horizon covering the whole world as the timeline resets, leaving their fates unknown
