In the future where the heroes and villains have killed each other, ending with lex Luther killing Superman, he then sees Brainiac's fleet come and he realizes his mistake. He then travels to the past with a canister of Thousands of Exobytes (Microscopic robots made by future brainiac that have downloaded powers from the earth' future's heroes and villains and can upload that information into another host and give them the superpowers that it downloaded) Luthor tells the present day Justice League (Heroes) and the Secret Society of Supervillains (Villains) of the future and he released the Exobytes into the earth's atmosphere where they will find the nearest human being to upload the superpower information into.
