Stryker's Island Penitentiary is a prison complex located off the coast of Metropolis. The warden sent out a distress call after it was discovered one of the inmates, Parasite, was absorbing energy off of roaches in order to regain his strength. Two Metropolis Police Department officers tried to neutralize Parasite but were drained as well. Luckily, Superman responded to the distress call. He dodged Parasite's attacked and used his super breath to knock him to the guard railing outside his cell. Wonder Woman arrived, lassoed Parasite and knocked him out by throwing him into the ceiling. The police prepared to transfer Parasite elsewhere when Jimmy Olsen arrived to record some B-roll footage for Lois Lane. Suddenly, a meteor struck the van holding Parasite. Calythos of the Brothers Djinn rose from the flames. He stomped his foot and knocked over the two officers with a shockwave. The shockwave also rocked the penitentiary. While Wonder Woman went after Calythos, Superman helped stabilize Stryker's then joined Wonder Woman in battle.
In search of answers, Wonder Woman and Hawkman went to Lex Luthor's cell and demanded to know what he did to Superman. Luther feigned ignorance. Hawkman ripped a section of the prison doors off. Wonder Woman slammed Luthor against the wall and tied him up with her Lasso of Truth. He admitted to infecting Superman with millions of nanobots that fed off the solar radiation in his Kryptonian body. After Superman was cured, Luthor was returned to Stryker's. The Flash began to perform nightly check-ins at Stryker's just to make sure everyone was "behaving" themselves. On a quiet day, the Joker boomed into Stryker's and took a selfie with the Flash. Luthor, in his cell, justified his building a bomb of ultimate destruction was more of a hobby. A guard named Karen kept her gun pointed into a custom opening of the cell at Luthor under the Warden's orders. The Joker blew a party favor and rendered Karen unconscious with knockout gas then greeted Luthor. Luthor found it random and reminded Joker of his inability to leave with him.
Joker boomed into the cell then revealed his Mother Box to Luthor. The Flash ordered him to stop but Joker boomed the both of them out of Stryker's into the shores of Themyscira. After Joker's plan failed, Luthor was returned to his cell at Stryker's. He was more then happen to return to sanity but he learned he was getting a roommate: the Joker.
