The Story: "Crisis from Yesterday!" by Gerry Conway, Dick Dillin, and Frank McLaughlin. The JLA and JSA are having their annual meeting at the swanky Club 22, located in Gotham City (presumably in one of the nicer parts of town).
The heroes are engaging in their usual chit-chat, when an explosion occurs!
Meanwhile, we find the one of the JLA's foes, The Lord of Time, going over his newest plan to defeat the JLA and JSA, by bringing five heroes from the past into the 20th Century!
Turns out that's what caused the explosion (you knew that already, didn't you?)--the arrival of The Viking Prince, Jonah Hex, Enemy Ace, Miss Liberty, and the Black Pirate!
These five heroes are confused as to why they are where they are, why they attacked these heroes, and who made them do it! So they take off to get some answers.
Individual teams of heroes meet up with our five time travelers, who again are forced to do battle. Each time, it ends up in defeat for the JLA and JSA:
Meanwhile, the Lord of Time reveals that all of existence will be wiped out in five hours by his own computer, and even he cannot stop it! To be continued!
Roll Call: Superman, Flash, Hawkman, Elongated Man
Notable Moments: Most of the JLA appear in cameos during the Club 22 sequence (though no Aquaman).
The Huntress is written kinda bitchy here, where she goofs on Elongated Man and at one point uses his head as leverage to pitch herself out Wonder Woman's Invisible Plane! Now that's chutzpah!
Dick Dillin, having "missed" two issues in the last year (the only ones he would ever miss), was clearly being punished with this story by Conway, by adding even more characters to the already-crowded yearly JLA/JSA team-up.
