Missing in Action--5 Justice Leaguers! last edited by DCArruda on 07/23/18 05:44PM View full history

    Ever wonder why ALL the JLA members don't turn up for every JLA meeting and participate in every adventure. That question is answered in this issue.

    Snapper Carr reveals the whereabouts of five members of the Justice League of America, during a recent case. The Hawkman and the Hawkgirl closed on the secret lair of Faceless. The Hawkman went after Faceless, while the Hawkgirl dealt with Faceless' minions. Faceless proved to be far more formidable than the Hawkman had anticipated. After tearing the Hawkman's mace in half, Faceless attempted to crush the Hawkman's head between the two halves. The Hawkman just managed to dodge the attack.

    When the two halves of the mace were struck together, the sparks ignited the Hawkman's wings. Suddenly, the tide of the battle turned, as the Hawkman was finally able to beat Faceless unconscious. Faceless was revealed to be J'onn J'onzz, the Manhunter from Mars. The Martian Manhunter had tried to infiltrate Faceless' gang, by posing as Faceless. The tables were turned though, when Faceless fired an energy bolt at J'onn J'onzz, the Manhunter from Mars, that caused him to believe he truly was Faceless.

    The Hawkman and J'onn J'onzz, the Manhunter from Mars, teamed up to thwart Faceless' crime wave. As they mop up the last of Faceless' gang, the two heroes see the Green Lantern coming towards them. The Green Lantern had been charging his ring, when he noticed that energy was being siphoned from his power battery. The Green Lantern followed the energy trail to a farmhouse. The family within the farmhouse were under attack by a giant, vicious dog.

    When the Green Lantern attempted to subdue the dog, he found that his ring energy only increased the canine's size and ferocity. Thus, the Green Lantern was forced to fight the giant, raging beast without the use of his power ring. Realizing that the power battery charged dog would be vulnerable to the color yellow, the Green Lantern coated his fists in yellow paint, then beat the dog into unconsciousness. The Green Lantern resumed his trace of the stolen power battery energy, bringing him to the Hawkman and J'onn J'onzz, the Manhunter from Mars.

    The three heroes surmised that Faceless somehow tapped into the energy of the power battery, and used it to convince the Martian Manhunter that he was Faceless. During the most recent Justice League of America case, the Atom was absent, due to his solving a case in the 18th Century. Superman and the Batman tracked a strange energy signature to two enormous cube creatures, destroying a skyscraper. Superman and the Batman engaged the cube creatures in combat.

    During the course of the battle, Superman and the Batman were able to ferret out the cube creature's weakness, an achilles toe, and defeat them. At the Fortress of Solitude, Superman is pulled into the cube creatures' dimension. The cube creatures intended to study Superman, so that they could build an android army of Supermen to invade the Earth. To test his invulnerability, the cube creatures struck Superman with a large wooden stick, nearly killing him.

    The green sun of the cube creatures' world had robbed Superman of his powers. Superman convinced the cube creatures to give him certain raw materials, so that he might better explain how his invulnerability works. Superman fashioned a large lens to filter out the green sun's radiation, restoring his powers. Superman then beat the living daylights out of the cube creatures. With all their cases wrapped up, the Atom, the Green Lantern, the Hawkman, J'onn J'onzz, the Manhunter from Mars, and Superman were finally free to answer the latest emergency summons from the Justice League of America.
