Most of the planet still thinks the Hyperclan are good guys, and it's a big media event
when they raise huge "watchtowers" in the Antarctic
, the Gobi Desert
, and in the middle of the Pacific Ocean
. The JLA split up to take on the Hyperclan at their watchtowers: Superman and Batman head for Antarctica, Wonder Woman takes off for the Pacific, and Flash, Green Lantern, and Martian Manhunter zip off for the Gobi Desert.
If there's any doubt about the Hyperclan's loyalties, they're all cleared up when Fluxus announces to Wonder Woman their intention to kill the JLA and enslave
the planet. A very grumpy
Aquaman joins her, but Fluxus cleans Aquaman's clock, and Tronix zaps Wonder Woman.
Meanwhile, Flash and Green Lantern meet up out in the Gobi when the Hyperclan attack. Flash takes off after Zum, and GL is ambush
ed by Armek and Zenturion. Hey, where's the Martian Manhunter? He's having a secret meeting with Protex! Who's side is he on, anyway?
Meanwhile, in the Antarctic, A-Mortal blows the Batplane out of the sky, and Protex knocks Superman on his back with a fragment of Kryptonite
. Oh, man! We're done for!Cool Quotes!
