9. For diamonds do appear to be, just like broken glass to me

Summary: The multiverse is a theory, hypothetical as it may be, that suggests the existence of an infinite number of universes that, together, comprise everything that exists.

Lives they’re not even aware of.

10. How to Win Super Friends and Influence Villains

Summary: Luke knew Danny meant well when he tried to convince them all that teaming up was their best option, and in the end, it definitely seemed so.

After the events at Midland Circle, and minus one vigilante, the other Defenders try to move on with their lives, on their separate paths. It’s only a matter of time before those paths intersect, again.
