"Lovers' Quarrel"

Wonder Woman
Where is Doctor Psycho?
[Parademon screeches unintelligibly]
[Wonder Woman looks at Superman]
Superman
Oh, what? Because I'm an alien, I understand all alien languages?
[Wonder Woman's eye's widen in distress]
Superman
Okay. I know a little Parademon, but it's still a racist assumption. Be better.
[Wonder Woman rolls her eyes]
— Superman is offended

Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman fought back against the Parademon infestation in Gotham. After Superman attacks the Parademon nest itself, throwing the colossal hive miles away from Gotham into the air, Wonder Woman kidnaps a Parademon and demands to know Doctor Psycho's location. However, since she doesn't understand Parademon, she looks to Superman for translation help, who is offended she thinks he knows all alien languages, although eventually admits that he does know some Parademon although encouraging her to be better. The League goes after Poison Ivy who is being mind-controlled by Doctor Psycho. Superman launches into a meandering warning to Ivy, which Wonder Woman succinctly summarizes as "we don't wanna have to take you out but if you don't give us another option, we will".

"Get off me, you angry dolphin."

As Psycho sends Clayface and King Shark to aide Ivy, Superman tries to help when Ivy starts to gain the upper hand, but cannot move as King Shark has bitten his ankle. He eventually frees himself and ducks for the cars Ivy starts throwing at them with her vines. As Wonder Woman and Batman are distracted by Clayface and King Shark, Superman takes on Poison Ivy but Harley interrupts, throwing a rock at Superman which fails to even affect him. Ivy grows her vines around Superman and spins him around, but he uses his superstrength to gain the upper hand instead launching her across Gotham. Superman follows her into Riddler University, where she crushes him with a massive amalgamation of plants. While he fights off the plant, Poison Ivy kidnaps Harley.

Superman, now once again joined by Batman and Wonder Woman follow Poison Ivy to the top of Wayne Tower. After Superman severed the vines Ivy was controlling, Wonder Woman captures her with her lasso, Harley once again intervene, pushing Superman and demanding that they don't kill her. Although Superman explains that they are merely sending her to the Phantom Zone, believing her to be too dangerous to let be. However, before they could do anything, Psycho controlled Ivy to release her pheromones on the Trinity who became too horny and focused on each other to continue the fight.
