(All news stations currently airing footage of the Cuba invasion suddenly cut to a live feed with the caption 'Live in Cuba'. On the video screen...well, the costume of the man suggests that of Kobra himself. The face of the man in the costume, however, should be recognized by the world as none other than Dr. Light.)
"Citizensss of the world. I am Lord Naga, ssssoverign ruler of Cuba.
'Many of you may have thought me dead, murdered at the handsss of Black Adam and his band of thugsss. I did, in fact, die...and have arisen again by the grace and will of Kali.
"Since my death, many of the world's so-called heroessss have opposed the plans of my organization - loyal followers whose role was to lure the world into a false sense of sssecurity.
"Your sssecurity is now at an end. Cuba, a once strong land that has grown as old and decrepit as it's leader, is now a ssssoverign nation under my direct command. You were told of this by my second in command, Slyther. And yet you still chose to defy my termsss.
(The camera pans over to show Sand Hawkins, Brainwave, and Caleb Zukov on camera, all surrounded by armed guards...then moves back to Kobra, with Ibn Head now being shown, trapped and bound inside a light construct.)
"The Justice Sssociety of America. The last ones to oppossse me before the ruler of Kahndaq...aided at the time, by the way, by the man called Brainwave...murdered me in cold blood. We have video proof of this...affront to our ssssociety."
(He looks at Ibn) "I've been told that this man...also among the adventurers...is a man of ssssome importance. To me...he is nothing."
(Ibn is unceremoniously thrown off camera by the light construct. Seconds later, Brainwave appears on the screen.)
"Thisss one, however, shall be tried in 15 minutes under Kobra law for aiding and abetting Black Adam of Khandaq in my murder. You will get to witnesssss this affront first hand, should your nationssss choose to air it."
"In the meantime, the 24 hour deadline that the United Nations has to accept my sssoverign rule has now shrunk to one hour. If we do not have confirmation that this has been done...well, we're well aware of the Green Lantern playing guard dog over Florida. Cuba is useful, but hardly the only ssssuch area. We will simply leave, take Cuba's nuclear sssstockpile WITH us, and obliterate the island and all of its inhabitantssss...which currently include the United States military stationed at Guantanamo as well as these fine representativessss of the Justice Society."
"You have one hour. Choosssse well. So speakssss Kobra."
