The Story: "The Hand That Shook the World!" by Len Wein, Dick Dillin, and Joe Giella. Continuing from last issue, the JLAers, JSAers, and assorted guest-stars continue traveling to different time periods to rescue the amnesiac Seven Soldiers of Victory.
Superman, Sandman, and Metamorpho take on Genghis Khan, where they meet up with The Shining Knight. Hawkman, Wonder Woman, and Dr.Mid-Nite arrive in Ye Olde England, where they meet Robin Hood(!)--or actually the man everyone thinks is Robin Hood, though we know him as Green Arrow!
There's a great moment during this sequence where the heroes have to make their way into Nottingham Castle. As the drawbridge is lowered and the King's minions attack, Hawkman grabs a staff and saves everybody a lot of time:
"Two hits--me hitting you, you hitting the floor."--Carter Hall.
Batman, Starman, and Hourman head to Ancient Egypt to rescue Stripsey, where none of the Egyptians seem to be unnerved by a giant redheaded white guy wearing a red-and-white-striped shirt.
Meanwhile, back at the Secret Sanctuary, Diana Prince is holding down the fort. Unbeknownst to her,the Iron Hand is there as well! To be continued!
Roll Call: Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Atom, Hawkman, Black Canary
Notable Moments: This is the first three-part JLA/JSA team-up, and as if this story didn't feature enough characters, Wein starts working in historical figures, as well. I wonder what Dick Dillin thought when he started getting scripts from this new JLA writer?
Even though it's a relative tiny mistake, Starman having all-red arms on the cover(again by Nick Cardy) to me looks really, really odd, like he has jammies on or something.
