Wonder Woman plays a secretarial role only.

Synopsis

Johnny takes an interest in a dishevelled man that enters a diner, and buys him dinner. In gratitude, the man named Landor says he was born in 2414, a time of perpetual peace and quiet, which bored Landor, so he uses an old time machine to travel back to 1946, but is trapped when the machine disintegrates. Johnny is sceptical, but when a prediction of Landor’s occurs, the JSA accepts Landor’s challenge to them: the present knowledge of science versus the future knowledge of science. Wonder Woman writes down the six locations where Landor will strike, and the members get their assignments and head out.

As Landor is finally brought into custody by the Thunder Bolt, he pulls out his converted flashlight weapon to destroy all the members, but the Flash speeds over and knocks it out of his hand, and Green Lantern destroys it with his power ring. Now the puzzled JSA tries to figure out what to do with Landor. They can’t put him in jail, because he’d find a way to make a weapon to get himself out. Green Lantern comes up with the solution: use his power ring to send Landor back to the year 2446. Now back in his own time element, Landor now decides that the modern era is not so bad after all!
