Synopsis:
The JSA's members are captured by future foes they have yet to know, given they are from circa 1947, and led by an unknown menace. Only Hawkman, Atom, and Dr. Mid-Nite escape their capture thanks, in part, to Robotman's appearance where they are at. Meanwhile, FDR is worrisome at the White House, as he's been unable to contact the JSA so they can stop the bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese on Dec. 7, 1941.
