Another “Giant” issue featuring two stories though this time the second story is a reprint from issue 40.

First Story Synopsis

Manhunter Mark Shaw captures Green Lantern, Green Arrow and Black Canary, accusing Green Lantern of destroying an inhabited planet. Batman proves that the accusation is false, but the League uncovers a much larger plot by the Manhunters to discredit the Guardians of the Universe.

Second Story Synopsis

Andrew Helm creates a machine intended to create world peace, but which malfunctions and causes evil. The Justice League of America traces the source of the mayhem, battles illusory creatures summoned from their subconscious minds, and turns off the malfunctioning machine.
