Another 100-page super spectacular featuring numerous stories and characters. The Earth Two version of Wonder Woman features in both the first main story and in the second JSA story, which is a reprint from All Star Comics issue 41

First Story Synopsis

After the JLA and JSA capture the Horned Owl Gang on Earth-2, a silent alarm is triggered inside of Sandman’s old lab. When both teams arrive, they discover a sand monster has escaped. After further explanations by Sandman, it’s revealed it was once his former partner, Sandy, who had been struck accidentally by an energy beam in his lab, that changed his body into pure silica. Both teams eventually reel him in, but the reason for his escape was that he was trying to quell several severe earthquakes that were about to occur, since in his new form he felt them.

Second Story Synopsis

The famous Liberty Train mysteriously disappears and Black Canary calls a meeting of the JSA. But they have disappeared because they are the prisoners of the New Injustice Society. The Canary finds the Harlequin at JSA HQ and, before they know it, the Icicle freezes them both and takes them to the gang’s HQ. Harlequin uses her special glasses to hypnotise the JSA back to their old selves, and when they return to their senses, they discover that the Injustice Society plans to steal four of America’s greatest treasures. The JSA vows to stop them from doing so.
