Amazing-Man aids the Squadron in their continued battle against “Real American.”

The All-Star Squadron are not welcome at Smiley's Cafe, in Detroit. The All-Star Squadron's request for information goes unanswered. When the proprietor lays hands on the Firebrand, Robotman intervenes, and forcefully gets the information they seek. The patrons of Smiley's Cafe depart. The All-Star Squadron are asked to leave. Johnny Quick, and Liberty Belle, run down the addresses of everyone in Detroit named "Will Everett". The Firebrand, the Hourman, and Robotman, head for the Sojourner Truth Homes, to aid in maintaining the peace.

Before a burning cross, the Phantom Empire, reveal their new champion, the Real American. The Phantom Empire stir up racial hatred in the white populace of Detroit. Citing freedom of speech, the All-Star Squadron do not intervene. After the Phantom Empire departs, the Firebrand extinguishes the burning cross. Johnny Quick, and Liberty Belle, meet with Everett's wife, Rachel, and Everett's mother. Rachel is hostile towards Johnny Quick, and Liberty Belle, but Everett's mother is more welcoming. Rachel believes that white americans will never allow black americans their due.

A large group of white americans bar the path, of a large group of black americans, to the Sojourner Truth housing development. Johnny Quick, and Liberty Belle, cover the situation, as reporters Johnny Chambers, and Libby Lawrence. Recognized by a woman in the crowd, Lawrence is verbally attacked. Everett's father, Jake, tries to drive a moving van through the white barricade. Jake takes a brick to the face. White men surround the van, intent on stealing it's contents. When the back of the van is opened, the white men are surprised to see the Amazing Man. Another brick is thrown.

The Amazing Man catches the brick, then physically transforms into brick. The Amazing Man attacks the white men. A full scale riot breaks out. Chambers, and Lawrence, take action, as Johnny Quick, and Liberty Belle. The All-Star Squadron reveals their presence in the crowd. The All-Star Squadron separate the rioters. Just as they're close to restoring the peace, the Real American attacks. The Amazing Man battles the Real American. Astonishingly, the Real American subdues the Amazing Man, even forcing him to transform back to flesh, from steel.

Johnny Quick, and Liberty Belle, ask the Amazing Man to stand down. The Amazing Man punches Johnny Quick. The Amazing Man is struck unconscious, and taken into custody. The Real American gives a speech. Jake asks the All-Star Squadron to intervene on the Amazing Man's behalf. Their hands, however, are tied by the law. The Real American is carried away, on the shoulders of the victorious white men. The Green Lantern, and the Hawkman, press the President Of The United States of America, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, to intervene in Detroit. Roosevelt refuses. The Green Lantern, and the Hawkman, fly to Detroit, to resolve the situation themselves.
