Synopsis:
When both teams return to Pearl Harbor and see the damage, the more powerful of the heroes go to defend an island under siege by the Japanese in the Pacific. They arrive, with the others in tow, but slowly begin to fall under both the Holy Tablet (supposedly carved from part of the Holy Grail itself) and the Spear of Destiny's combined magicks (both held by Tojo and Hitler respectively). The others must then fight them and get them back to territory not under Axis control/influence. In Washington, D.C., FDR declares all heroes as All-Star members now for World War II's duration.
