[Shortly after this
, in a plan that was put in motion shortly after Superman left A.R.G.U.S. on Friday evening, JLA officials hold a press conference about the damage to the building.
They point out the childishness of the action, and they assure the public that they did not authorize Oliver Queen's attack on Supergirl. They also release footage of the girl in her holding room, where nothing physical was done to her, along with footage of all the injuries she caused others as she broke out of the facility using super-force, and footage of her attack on Gotham PD's officers the day she was taken into custody.
Steve Trevor gives an impassioned speech, in which he explains that the JLA exists to ensure that there is a system of checks and balances for all citizens of the planet, including the ones with superpowers. He questions why super-entities should get rights that normal citizens do not, and he explains that the JLA was created to keep everyone safe, not to harm others. Footage is shown of recent JLA rescue missions across the globe,
He concludes his speech by regretfully explaining that Gotham's members of the JLA are being taken into custody, as recent events have made it clear that they are sharing classified information with known aggressors. The names, which are read at the end of the conference, are as follows: Jason Todd, for collusion with Batman. Oliver Queen, for collusion with Green Lantern and Superman, Harley Quinn, for collusion with Poison Ivy, and Edward Nigma, for collusion with Batman and Batgirl. Selina Kyle is also arrested, but her name is not listed. All former JLA members are moved to Arkham City in the overnight hours.
Before their arrival, Arkham City is fortified with new, A.R.G.U.S. developed technologies that will not allow use of any superpowers within the prison, nor will they allow superpowers to be used to enter/exit the facility.]
