Synopsis:
Superman tells the gathered JSA how Batman's old associate Dr. Nichols gave him Batman's diary and other evidence that accuses the Justice Society of secretly fighting for the Nazi cause from the group's formation in November 1940 through the end of the war, and of covering it up since then. But their meeting is interrupted when the JSA members are taken into custody, pending a congressional investigation.

Indexer Notes

Rich Morrissey credited as "consultant."

Prof. Nichols sent Batman and Robin through time via hypnosis several times from 1944 through 1963. This part briefly covers the JSA's entire history from their origin in DC Special (DC, 1975 series) #29 through Batman's death, though in the slanted way it is presented in Batman's diary.
