In ‘Justice League’ (2014) #29, Cyborg recruits the Metal Men in order to battle Grid.

At his base, Grid is in communications with the Crime Syndicate. They have found out that Lex Luthor and his rebels have freed the Crime Syndicate’s prisoner from the Justice League Satellite.

Grid notices Cyborg has taken over his communications. Cyborg says Grid is wondering how he survived. To which Grid responds, Cyborg was built a new body and he knows where Cyborg is.

Cyborg sets the trap since he is counting on his team and asks Grid to “come and get me.”1 Grid accepts the challenge.

THE METAL MEN CAN’T BE DETECTED BY GRID, SINCE THEY ARE OFFLINE

Grid seeks Cyborg in an empty street near Happy Harbor. When Grid says Cyborg is hiding, Cyborg appears and says he is not. Grid then states he thought he was rid of Cyborg as he attacks Cyborg with a blast. As Cyborg evades the attack, he notes Grid can’t see the Metal Men. At that moment, Iron attacks Grid with a wrecking ball. The battle is on.

Grid gets wrecked through buildings and houses. Lead is directing the attack and asks Dr. Magnus for orders. He tells Lead and Iron to keep hitting Grid. Grid recovers and says he has identified Dr. Magnus’ voice. Iron responds with a direct attack by slamming Grid through a car.

As Grid recovers again, Mercury appears. Since Mercury “is the only metal that’s liquid at room temperature”, he attempts to enter Grid’s gears and melt them.2 The attack fails and Grid incinerates Mercury.

Grid notes the androids are inferior and that they feel. He identifies the source of their feelings to their responsometer and removes Mercury’s responsometer. At that moment, Grid summons the Secret Society.

‘FOREVER EVIL’

It is now Cyborg and the Metal Men against Grid and the Secret Society. While the Metal Men take on the Secret Society of Super-Villains, Cyborg takes on Grid.

Forward on the action, it is evident that the real objective of ‘Forever Evil’ is to free the Justice League. As new enemies arrive, Cyborg orders the Metal Men to keep fighting why he goes “to save the Justice League.”3
