Synopsis

At the JSA’s headquarters, Damage is showing off the repair that Gog has done to his face to Maxine as she is chasing her new pet monkey, Frankie. Maxine is openly stunned at how handsome Grant appears now. Grant inquires to Judo Master’s upcoming trial and heads off to talk to her and Mr. America. Maxine continues to remain impressed by his repaired face.

Back in the Congo Power Girl brings the members of the Justice League up to speed on Gog’s appearance and actions which have been nothing but helpful. But as Alan Scott comments, despite Gog’s best intentions, the people that Gog has helped are now following him across the entire continent, which is causing mass uprisings and exodus and cause long-term problems.

But Gog continues to make his easy fixes to the complicated problems he encounters, such as deciding he will be the protector of the Justice Society and Justice League. Gog “fixes” Sandman’s mind so he can dream, restores Starman full mind, and sends Power Girl off to the parallel world of Earth-2 in regards to Power Girl’s desire “to go home”. Starman, who reveals “…I am Thom Kallor. I am from the 31st century.” also comments that despite Gog’s best intentions, Gog’s actions may cause even larger problems with the statement of “I’m thinking clearly now for the first time in quite a while. But trust me. That is a BAD thing.”

At that moment the Earth-22 Superman and others question where Power Girl has been transported to, Gog is distracted by the the smell of death. He states it is time for him “to eradicate war”.
