Synopsis

Captain Marvel is called to the Rock of Eternity by the Wizard Shazam because he sensed that something is wrong but could not pinpoint the exact problem. However, he instructs William Batson to tell the Justice League of America and the Justice Society of America to prepare. Suddenly, the Wizard simply collapsed. Captain Marvel, after helping the Wizard in his chair, left to assemble the JLA and JSA to prepare for possible problem. As Captain Marvel leaves, the statues of the Seven Deadly Sins’ heads faced the Wizard. Suddenly the Wizard sees his foe from behind and tries to shield himself but failed.

In the Tower of Fate, Doctor Fate is studying magic guided by the Helmet of Fate and entertains Zatanna, who was checking out Zatara’s biography from Fate’s library. As Zatanna left the Tower, Doctor Fate suddenly felt a shiver shooting up his spine at the same time the Wizard collapsed at the Rock of Eternity.

Bruce Wayne invited Mr. Terrific to the Batcave since he has installed Mr. Terrific’s cyber-ware that is designed to upgrade the Batcave’s communication systems. However, Mr. Terrific also wanted talked to Batman, whom he sees as someone he can relate to.

The Flashes Jay Garrick and Wally West watches hockey at Keystone City with Plastic Man and Hourman, who unfortunately spoiled the outcome of the game due to his flash-forward powers.

At the JSA Headquarters, Atom examines the cell structure of Green Lantern Alan Scott and hypothesises that Alan is now composed of the Green Flame that is making him virtually immortal and one of the most powerful beings on the planet. His findings were agreed to by Doctor Mid-Nite.

During a battle between Superman and Bizarro, Power Girl, Wonder Woman and Stargirl were discussing about relationships and Superman.
