Dr. Fate leads the Justice Society in finding the mastermind behind Bill Jensen's power, Frederic Vaux.

But Fate revives and with his comrades, and the power of those dedicated to order, defeats Vaux. With their memories in flux due to Vaux's machinations, Fate is also able to alter the general population's minds so that they believe Bruce Wayne and Batman were two separate persons, restoring Robin's and Huntress' secret identities.
