Synopsis

In 11,946, in the city of Nu Yuk, in a land known as Amerka, hands reach for several strangely wrought jars that carry a warning from the Justice Society NOT to open them. A parchment attached gives the story behind the warning and the strange jars. It seems Nels Farrow finds the jars, paints a picture of a man, who speaks and tells him that the paints live and whatever is painted into them can be for good or evil. He intends to use them for evil against five men whom he holds a grudge. When Farrow lies dying from an accident, he tells the JSA the story and they head out to save those men.

As the members arrive back at JSA HQ with the empty canvases they have retrieved, each of them unrolls theirs and places them in prominent positions, then duck for cover. The paint beings enter and head back toward the canvas they came from, then the JSA members scrape the paint off of each canvas and place the scrapings into the jars. Green Lantern then hermetically seals the jars and places the warning on them, along with a parchment being read by the men of 10,000 years in the future. Those men decide, after reading the account, NOT to tempt fate by opening the jars, but leave them where they found them.
