Synopsis

The JSA members are to have a dinner in their honour at Midwestern University. However, the Flash can’t attend because of a commitment made ten years previously, when he and seven of his classmates, along with their college professor, made prophecies as to what they believed their lives would be like. Now they were to examine those prophecies to see how accurate they were. One, Paul Turnbull, refuses to participate, burns his prophecy, and leaves the room. However, using ultra-violet light, the JSA sees Turnbull’s prediction that he would become a criminal named Mr. Alpha.
