Synopsis
As the newly-founded All-Star Squadron continues their search for the JSA, Per Degaton -- a foe the JSA would first encounter and defeat in 1947 -- recounts his origin to the Shining Knight and Danette Reilly, how he regained his memories after his previous defeat at the hands of the JSA, and decided to travel back to 1941 as part of a new plan. Meanwhile, the All-Star Squadron closes in on Per Degaton, but not unnoticed.
