Synopsis
The JSA's members are captured by future foes they have yet to meet, given they are from circa 1947, and led by an unknown menace. Only Hawkman, Atom, and Dr. Mid-Nite escape capture, thanks, in part, to Robotman's appearance. Meanwhile, FDR is worried at the White House, as he's been unable to contact the JSA, so they can stop the bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese on Dec. 7, 1941.
