Synopsis:
The Crime Syndicate is so bored of life on their Earth as supreme villains, designated as Earth-3, that they come to the JLA's Earth for a new challenge after Ultraman accidentally discovers it when exposed to Green Kryptonite (which gives him a new power with every exposure to it). Just as it looks like the JLA has the upper hand, the Crime Syndicate teleports them to Earth-3, where they have the advantage. To secure a level battlefield the Crime Syndicate plans to go to the Earth-2 and eliminate the JSA.

Indexer Notes

Lettering credit from reprint in JLA Archives. Story continues in next issue. Story across 24 pages in three chapters of 6.67 pages, 11.67 pages, and 4.67 pages.

Brief history of Earth-3 also given in this issue, where history ran a reverse course (e.g.- Columbus, an American discovers England and Europe; The English win their war of independence from America; John Wilkes Booth is U.S. President and assassinated by actor Abraham Lincoln), hence why super-powered persons are evil on this earth. Earth-3 also named this issue and introduction of the Crime Syndicate.
