An unknown entity, named "The Centre," tells its story about how it was born from the Earth itself and has witnessed the evolution and extinction of the dinosaurs, and mankind's evolution. Due to man's capacity for war and violence, the Centre has concluded that they must be eradicated.

At the end of the Korean War, United States Air Force pilot Hal Jordan and his wingman, Kyle "Ace" Morgan, are attacked by enemy pilots but survive. In Gotham City, Saul Erdel accidentally teleports J'onn J'onzz, the last survivor of the Green Martian race, to Earth, and dies from fright after seeing him. Unable to return, J'onn disguises himself as Erdel, learning about Earth from television. In Las Vegas, Iris West is on the telephone with her fiancé Barry Allen – also known as the Flash – at a casino when Captain Cold arrives to commit a robbery; he races from Central City to confront Cold. Flash finds Cold's bombs and captures him, before the latter is possessed by an entity.

Two years later, J'onn has taken on the identity of John Jones and become a detective with the Gotham City Police Department, investigating a doomsday cult that worships the "Centre" and has kidnapped a child for a sacrificial ritual. J'onn and his partner Slam Bradley join Batman in battling the cult, but the former is briefly incapacitated by a fire. The cult leader is possessed by the entity, and warns of impending judgment. Meanwhile, Hal is training under Rick Flag at Ferris Aircraft for a government project to build a spacecraft for travel to Mars, overseen by special agent King Faraday.

Batman suggests to J'onn that they work together to investigate the cult. After being attacked and nearly subdued by the US government, a disillusioned Flash announces his retirement. J'onn interrogates former Ferris employee Harry Leiter, apprehended for murder while under The Centre's influence, who tells them about the launch to Mars. Seeing the jubilant albeit contemptuous response to the Flash's retirement, J'onn gives his research to Batman and plans to return to Mars on the rocket. However, Faraday confronts him on the launchpad, as the rocket is damaged and malfunctions. Hal wants to attempt a landing but Flag reveals weapons of mass destruction are on board, intended to destroy all life on Mars. Hal is ejected from the cockpit and saved by Superman; Flag detonates the rocket as J'onn is imprisoned.

On Paradise Island, Wonder Woman is training with Mala when The Centre attacks. As a result of Flag's rocket explosion, a fatally wounded Abin Sur crash-lands on Earth, gives his ring to Hal and tells him about the Centre. Meanwhile, Superman and Batman review J'onn's research. Wonder Woman's invisible jet crashes at Cape Canaveral and she warns Superman that The Centre is coming. J'onn decides to help save Earth after his hope for humanity is renewed, as The Centre, a massive flying island guarded by an army of mutant dinosaurs, begins its attack on America. The Flash, Green Arrow, Adam Strange, the Challengers of the Unknown, and the Blackhawks join forces to defend the Cape, as Superman is seemingly killed. Moved by his efforts, the heroes plan a frontal assault to provide cover for Hal and Ace while they fly a bombing mission into the Centre. At the same time, the Flash will use Ray Palmer's reduction ray to shrink it.

The aerial assault is nearly outmatched, and as dinosaurs ambush Faraday's ground forces, the Centre's psychic force briefly overwhelms J'onn. Faraday is captured by a dinosaur, and sacrifices himself to kill it with a grenade. Hal and Ace shoot their way into The Centre's core but a hallucinogenic attack disorients them; Ace detonates his payload as Hal rescues him. The Flash leaps onto The Centre's surface and covers it on foot, shrinking the island before Hal brings it into space, where it explodes. As the team celebrates their victory, Aquaman emerges from a submarine carrying Superman. The world celebrates the Centre's defeat with a ceremony. The film ends with a montage of various heroes and villains, including the birth of the Justice League set to the titular John F. Kennedy speech.

Like all things on this hurtling sphere...

...I emerged from the molten center of creation.

But mine has been a unique path.

Isolated, I developed attributes beyond those of lesser beings.

Then the sphere was struck by a vast celestial stone.
