So what happens?
Superman, Batman, and Aquaman are planning to reorganize the Justice League by adding new members. Their choices: Steel, Zauriel, Plastic Man, Huntress, Oracle, and Hippolyta, Wonder Woman's mom, who's taking over the job while her daughter's dead or a goddess or whatever (Don't ask--Wonder Woman's continuity makes Marvel Comics look intelligent). Other than that, Guy Gardner tries unsuccessfully to put himself in charge of the JLA. That's it, really.

Cool Quotes!
Aquaman announcing that Batman is secretly waiting in the Kents' kitchen: "He's been waiting in the kitchen for 15 minutes. I think sometimes he forgets I can see in the darkest ocean depths."
Batman, eating an apple: "Yes, that's it. I forgot. That sounds likely, doesn't it?"

Huntress, demanding to be teleported back home: "Gotham City."
Stowaway kid, messing with the teleporter controls: "Eggplant."
Huntress: "Eggplant--?"
Kid: "Itzhak Perlman."
Huntress: "What--?!?"
Kid: "I'm sorry, I thought we were free associating."
