In 1958, the Flash is lured into a government trap, but escapes. Later, in Gotham City, John Jones is asked to interview a man who believes Martians are on Earth, but the interview is interrupted. In California, Hal Jordan is scrubbed from the Task Force X mission. After John Henry is hunted down in Tennessee, Edward R. Murrow addresses the race problem on TV. When The Flash also denounces the tactics used to try and capture him on TV, J'onn J'onzz decides to try to return home, turning over all his unsolved cases to Batman, including the story by Theodore Smiesel about a "Monster Island.”
