Synopsis:
The Crime Syndicate is so bored of life on their Earth as supreme villains, designated as Earth-3, that they come to the JLA's Earth for a new challenge after Ultraman accidentally discovers it when exposed to Green Kryptonite (which gives him a new power with every exposure to it). Just as it looks like the JLA has the upper hand, the Crime Syndicate teleports them to Earth-3, where they have the advantage. To secure a level battlefield the Crime Syndicate plans to go to the Earth-2 and eliminate the JSA.

Indexer Notes

Lettering credit from reprint in JLA Archives. Story continues in next issue.
Story is told in three chapters, each ending in 2/3 page.
Brief history of Earth-3 also given in this issue, where history ran a reverse course (e.g.- Columbus, an American discovers England and Europe; The English win their war of independence from America; John Wilkes Booth is U.S. President and assassinated by actor Abraham Lincoln), hence why super-powered persons are evil on this earth. Earth-3 also named this issue, and introduction of Crime Syndicate (first appearances).
