Justice League of America #48 - Dec. 1966

sgSo Batman runs faster than the Flash, Superman, and Wonder Woman? Interesting...

Another 80-page Giant all-reprint issue. You'd almost feel ripped off if they hadn't released this plus a regular issue...

The stories: "Challenge of the Weapons Master!"(B&B #29), "Secret of the Sinister Sorcerers!"(JLA #2), and "Slave Ship of Space!"(JLA #3) by Gardner Fox, Mike Sekowsky, and Bernard Sachs.

Roll Call
: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter

Notable Moments:
This issue affords founding member The Martian Manhunter a lack of respect usually afforded only Aquaman. Not only were his appearances becoming more and more scarce, but on the cover he's given blue gloves, something he's never had.

You'd think that Sekowsky, who penciled the cover, Murphy Anderson, who inked it, and whoever colored it, would've caught it at some point.
