Synopsis

Solomon Grundy’s origin is re-told and he is imprisoned in an energy bubble by Green Lantern, but this is shattered by lightning. His only thought is to find Green Lantern and kill him. Meanwhile, at JSA HQ, the Lantern stands alone and hears a knock on the door, opens it and explains, “You!”

Much later, the other JSA members arrive and discover the HQ ripped apart, with a large muddy footprint on the floor. Johnny turns on the radio, which reports Solomon Grundy is on the loose, seen at various towns. The JSA puts the pieces together, and, leaving Wonder Woman behind to gather news, the rest leave to find Grundy.

The JSA arrive in time to rescue Green Lantern and battle Grundy. Green Lantern then puts Grundy back into a green bubble formed by his ring and personally transports Grundy to the Moon’s surface. Later, as the members look up at the glowing orb in the sky, they wonder if even the Moon can hold Grundy?
