Justice League of America #52 - March 1967

sgIs this an issue of World's Finest?

The Story: "Missing in Action--5 Justice Leaguers!" by Gardner Fox, Mike Sekowsky, and Sid Greene. Several different menaces attack the JLA at the same time, so that they are missing in action when they are called to action to fight the Lord of Time(JLA #50).

Roll Call: Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Atom, Hawkman

Notable Moments: The story is told entirely in flashback by Snapper Carr. It happens concurrently with the events of JLA #50, a fairly unusual touch for the time.

All the JLAers appear in the final panel, ready to head off to Eddie Brent's medal ceremony, from the last page to #50.

But Batman was IN JLA #50, so how could he be in this issue, too? I'm confused. (Double appearances like this never happened to Aquaman!!)

good point, i should've mentioned it--Batman does not take part in the main part of the story, when the Lord of Time stuff was happening in #50. he does come in at the end, with Superman, later on.

DC REALLY needed Batman to participate. A LOT.

This was the worst issue of JLA to date. "Toe-cubes?"

Lots of complaints on the JLA Mailroom pages about the "hip talk" being written by Gardner Fox.
