Synopsis:
The JSA faces off vs. Fredrick Vaux, the true mastermind behind Jensen acquiring his mystic powers. Vaux had made a pact with a demon to destroy Earth-2's heroes and their legacies, and almost succeeds, but is defeated by the JSA and Fate's magic (as well as Bruce's heroic spirit). A side effect of this victory was that Fate was able to have the world remember Bruce Wayne and Batman as two separate people, thereby keeping his true identity a secret, as well as Robin's and Huntress(Helena)'s (save those who already knew Wayne as Batman in the JSA).
