Superman in chains! Batman beaten and bloodied! Earth has been conquered and enslaved by a mighty alien force, one sworn to hunt down and exterminate all the world's superheroes! The Justice League is Earth's last hope, but how can they win a fight that all the other heroes have lost?
The epic conclusion! The Earth swarms with alien invaders seeking revenge for their defeat at the hands of the JLA. Now the only hope for survival lies in the hands of the five original JLAers, who will lead the largest team of superheroes ever assembled...against the greatest threat they've ever imagined!
When the Weapon Master strikes, it's Superman to the rescue--and Green Lantern's not happy about it! Plus, while Black Canary and the Flash stand on the precipice of a torrid love affair, the League learns of a horrifying loose end from its first case...one that may spell doom for the Earth!
Tension and clashing interpersonal traits may yet prevent the JLA from becoming a truly cohesive unit, and that suits Vandal Savage and the group known as Locus just fine! Savage and Locus step up their plans to eradicate the JLA before the team can pose a true threat to their secret plan.
A team of super-villains, all under the command of the immortal Vandal Savage, vow to destroy the new Justice League of America--even before Earth's five newest heroes can establish themselves as a team to be reckoned with. Plus: what is Batman's connection to the recently formed Justice League?
