As Per Degaton, victorious, begins his plans to attack the United States West Coast after the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese, Danette Reilly appears alongside the All-Stars, with fire powers gained after being left unconscious inside an artificial volcano by Degaton. Her powers, alongside the All-Stars, free the JSA'ers, and together they defeat Degaton (who reawakens back in 1947, once again as a lab assistant to Prof. Zee), but not before realizing that they were too late to stop the attack of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese on Dec. 7, 1941.
