Synopsis

As the JSA members go their separate ways after Mr. Terrific’s funeral, Power Girl wonders why the team disbanded in 1951 and Huntress relates the story as she heard it. After a case involving their being kidnapped by a man with foreign interests, the JSA was summoned before Congress and their loyalty to their country questioned. Rather than reveal their identities, the heroes disappeared and retired.
