Indexer Notes

A composite cover, the Batman figure is by Mike Sekowsky and Bernard Sachs and from Justice League of America (DC, 1960 series) #37; the Sgt. Rock figure is probably by Joe Kubert; the Legion figures are by Curt Swan and Murphy Anderson from the cover of The Legion of Super-Heroes Archives (DC, 1991 series) #1; the art credits for the remaining JLA members are undetermined, and from a house ad announcing Johnny DC (circa late 1962).

Synopsis:
Dictator Xandor banishes Carthan to Earth, and, to ensure he stays there, also sends three machines. If Carthan attempts to leave Earth without removing their coverings, he will go blind; he can leave with his sight if he removes the coverings first, but that will destroy the planet. Carthan challenges the JLA, now including Green Arrow, to disable the machines. After disabling the machines, the JLA enters Carthan’s ship, where he imprisons them in a hollow diamond until he can explain. When Carthan is unable to release the JLA, Green Arrow finds the diamond’s weak spot and shatters it.
