Synopsis

Hawkman brings a newspaper ad to the attention of the members from a Forest Malone, who wants them to participate in a never before done experiment for the good of humanity. They visit Malone and view his “dream recorder,” a machine that will allow one not only to graph the electrical emanations from a person’s thoughts as they dream, but to also translate those thoughts into pictures! The members agree to an experiment, they sleep and then Malone reveals himself as the Brain Wave, bragging that the machine is really a “dream inducer,” which he plans to use to drive them totally insane.

In the Brain Wave’s lab, the JSA members are stirring restlessly in their dream-induced states. As the villain leaves the lab, the JSA members begin waking up, acting out their dreams. Johnny has had enough of this and calls for the T-Bolt to come and figures out what to do to restore them. Brain Wave returns with his gang to see the JSA in their state. Johnny and the T-Bolt storm in and Johnny wades into them, fists flying, while the T-Bolt uses an electrical shock to restore the JSA back to themselves. Furious, the JSA wades into the crooks and mops up, then T-Bolt explains what happened.
