My Justice League picks, eighteenth collage:
Oliver's gang considered their biggest threat in Metropolis to be the remnants of the
Morgan Edge gang, who had since recruited among the metahuman population. The
Edge gang increased in strength after Lionel Luthor learned about his son's ambitions
to create an elite task force of metahumans for his own purposes. Upon this
discovery Lionel went into a jealous rage. Fearing his own death at the hands of his
son Lionel threw all his support and finances behind the Morgan Edge gang.
The leaders of the Edge gang were elated to receive Lionel's support, but in their
jubilation they did not anticipate the speed of Lex's response. When the moment was
right Lex moved into Metropolis with his "Legion of Doom". He ordered them to wipe
out the Edge gang to set an example for the other metahuman gangs. Lionel Luthor
was killed in the attack. The Edge gang's hideout was completely destroyed in a
Several nearby buildings caught on fire. One of them was a children's hospital.
Oliver's gang arrived on the scene soon afterward to assist in the rescue effort. They
were told by hospital officials that many people had been evacuated, but there were
certain parts of the hospital that weren't accessible because of the fire.
Jordan Cross was able to pinpoint the location of children and hospital workers still
trapped inside by focusing his mind. He instructed Bart Allen and Arthur Curry on
how to bring them back safely. Bart and Arthur were able to save most of the people
trapped inside before the
who had been trapped in debris, but only a few of them were still alive.
Bart was shocked that Lex Luthor had discovered the location of the Edge gang's
secret hideout. Bart had only just recently been able to discover it's location while
working for Oliver's gang. He began to suspect that someone had revealed the secret
location to one of Lex Luthor's special operatives.
