Synopsis

As the final part of King Kull’s plan continues, it is yet thwarted again by the three groups of heroes, the JLA, JSA and Squadron of Justice. When Superman confronts Kull on the Rock of Eternity, however, he’s turned into a killer by a dose of Red Kryptonite, and almost destroys Captain Marvel, but when Marvel utters ‘Shazam!’, the spell is broken and is saved by Superman while in freefall as Billy. Kull is then captured by the Marvel Family – who also free the trapped Pantheon of Gods and Goddesses- and the four triumphant heroic groups then leave back to their respective worlds from the Rock.
