This issue ties in with events in Crisis on Infinite Earths, the multi issue crossover event that rebooted the entire DC Universe in the mid 80’s.

Synopsis

The Crisis hits Earth-2 as Harbinger recruits Firebrand. The JSA is shanghaied into space by Gootsden’s rockets, but Harbinger’s efforts to return to the Monitor’s satellite sends them all off course to different dimensional versions of Pluto, Uranus, Neptune, Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Mercury, and Mars. The Freedom Fighters go to Earth-X as Uncle Sam tells them he needs them there to win World War II, lest all be lost. While battling Nazi scientists, Commander Steel is accidentally sent to Earth-1, where he builds a new life for himself.
