Synopsis

In the workshop of Willie Wonder an evil globe-being named Zor enters the mind of Willie Wonder as he sleeps and his whole demeanour changes. Now he makes “toys” that are deadly and he teams up with a thug, supplying his gang with terrible weapons of crime. The JSA, meanwhile, read of the crimes, then are visited by three globe-beings called the Duna, who are the keepers of Zor on another planet and are on the trail of Zor and the impossible crimes. Unknown to the JSA, the Duna secretly follow the members, keeping them from harm until Zor can be re-captured.

The JSA re-assemble in front of Wonder’s workshop, where the Duna suddenly re-appear. Johnny Thunder is first in and Zor throws a galactic heat ray at him as the other members take on the gang members of Wonder’s that show up. The Duna then forces Zor out of Wonder’s body and into the open. The JSA then learns that the Duna are Zor’s keepers….that Zor is actually insane and capable of anything! The members are relived as the Duna disappear with their captive. Days later, the JSA receive special wood carved statues of each member from a grateful Willie Wonder.
