As Blue Beetle pays Oracle's hangar payments she reveals that the twenty million dollars that was siphoned through Waynetech from Kord Omniversal was transferred to a project called O.M.A.C. Noticing that Booster Gold was using his ATM card, Beetle locates Booster and tells him about the siphoned money. On Booster's suggestion, the two dine with Maxwell Lord to see if they can find out what's going on with Kord's money, but he dismisses their concerns.
After parting with Booster, Beetle goes to the Batcave to tell Bruce about how WayneTech is being manipulated. Unintentionally reminding him of the JLA's mind-wiping, Bruce sends him away.
"I'm paranoid because I know what they did. I know everything they did."
