Batgirl guests in "Winged Warriors of the Immortal Queen"!
Winged Warriors Of The Immortal Queen!
Aquaman, the Hawkman, J'onn J'onzz, the Manhunter From Mars, and Wonder Woman are all paralyzed. At the same moment, the Atom grows a pair of bee wings, then flies off to answer the Queen Bee's summons. The Queen Bee makes an adjustment to her magno-nuclear rod, to correct for it's failing to transform the other four Justice League of America members into her drones. The Batgirl sees the Batman shrink down and transform into a drone. The Batgirl pursues the Batman. The Batman, the Flash, the Green Arrow, the Green Lantern, and Superman all report to the Queen Bee. The Queen Bee reveals that she found a way around the Green Lantern's failsafes, and has consumed the elixir of immortality.
The Queen Bee then incorporated Per Kazz's technological advancements into her magno-nuclear rod. Unfortunately, a side effect of the elixir of immortality threatens to leave the Queen Bee immobile for eternity. The Queen Bee is alerted to the Batgirl's presence. The Queen Bee unleashes the Justice League of America drones on the Batgirl. Though she fights back valiantly, the Batgirl is overwhelmed by the Justice League of America drones. In defeat, the Batgirl, too, is shrank and transformed into a drone. The Queen Bee tasks the Justice League of America, and the Batgirl, with retrieving three items, from three alien worlds. Used in unison, these items will restore the Queen Bee's mortality.
The Atom and the Green Lantern are sent to the planet, Gram, to retrieve the Urn of Irrilium. Removal of the Urn of Irrilium from the surface of Gram, however, will destroy the planet. The Atom and the Green Lantern encounter heavy resistance on Gram. While the Atom makes off with the Urn of Irrilium, the Green Lantern uses his power ring to stabilize the planet. The Green Lantern collapses into unconsciousness, from the herculean exertion of his will power, to stabilize Gram's planetary core. Superman and the Flash are sent to the planet, Ishthan, to retrieve the Thermosolar Sphere. The Thermosolar Sphere automatically evades their every attempt to lay hands upon it.
Superman, and the Flash, are able to maneuver the Thermosolar Sphere into a cluster of rocks, where it becomes lodged. Superman then collects the Thermosolar Sphere. The Batgirl, the Batman, and the Green Arrow are sent to the planet, Peremunda, to collect radioactive lake water. While attempting to fill their flasks, the three heroes are attacked by sentient trees. The Green Arrow uses a jet arrow to aid in his, and the Batgirl's, escape. The Batman threatens to evaporate the lake if the trees don't cease all hostilities. The Green Arrow seeds the clouds with silver nitrate, then triggers a thunder storm. The grateful trees allow the three heroes to depart in peace.
Upon their return, the Justice League of America, and the Batgirl, discover that the Queen Bee has already succumbed to paralysis. The Flash and the Green Lantern attempt to steal the Queen Bee's magno-nuclear rod, only to find it protected by a force field. The radioactive lake water of Peremunda is poured into the Urn of Illirium. The Thermosolar Sphere is then placed into the Urn of Illirium, as well. Superman forces the Queen Bee to drink the elixir, restoring her mortality. Realizing the Queen Bee has no intention of ever releasing them from her sway, the Atom grows to his full height, revealing his secret identity, that of physicist, Ray Palmer.
No longer under the Queen Bee's domination, Palmer takes the magno-nuclear rod away from her. The magno-nuclear rod was keyed to the Queen Bee's immortality, and thus will no longer work for her. Palmer restores the Justice League of America, and the Batgirl, to normalcy. Palmer then uses the magno-nuclear rod to immobilize the Queen Bee, for the rest of her mortal life. The Green Lantern attempts to probe the magno-nuclear rod, with his power ring, to determine how Per Kazz overcame the ring energy's weakness to yellow. This action causes the magno-nuclear rod to blow up in the Green Lantern's face.
