Wonder Woman: It's past time that Luthor's partners in crime were locked up.
Atomic Skull: Wait a minute! We help you guys save the world, and we don't even get any consideration?
Batman: [looks at Superman, who shrugs and smirks; then, back to Atomic Skull] You're right. Five minute head start.
Atomic Skull: Five minutes? Are you kidding?!
Wonder Woman: Four minutes, fifty seconds.
[The villains start escaping, except for Giganta, who runs up to Flash and kisses him before running away. The heroes then start descending the staircase of Metro Tower, grouped together based on who created the characters and when.]
J'onn J'onzz: [on the cell phone] I should be back in time for dinner. I love you too.
Flash: [sardonically] These are the end times...
Superman: A head start? You're getting soft in your old age...
Batman: Don't you have a tall building to go leap?
Wonder Woman: ...And the adventure continues...
[Everyone runs down the stairs, from the minor characters to the Big Three, and the screen has a Fade to Black on Batman's logo, mirroring the opening of Batman: The Animated Series, the first show in the DCAU]
