In previous content, alternate versions of Batman and Lex Luthor from parallel dimensions, known as the Paradox Council, fought for control of a mysterious crossroads of time and space called the Nexus of Reality. Now, players have returned to the Nexus on the trail of Amazons missing from the front lines in a war-torn Gotham City. Once there, they discover Brainiac has already enslaved the Amazons, captured the Paradox Council, and taken complete control of the Nexus. The only hope of stopping him from taking over the universe is to go back in time and change time itself by stopping him from entering the Nexus in the first place.
