The distant world of Angor self-destructs as its corporations create war for profit. A robot remaining from that war encounters the Batman and Hawkman and controls their minds, leaving the Batman believing himself a king and Hawkman his servant.

Meanwhile, Zatanna pays a visit to Superman at the Fortress of Solitude to celebrate the anniversary of Zatara's rescue. As in The Forever People #1 (the same month), Superman expresses a desire to be with his own kind and eagerly answers the JLA distress call from Hawkman just before the robot's psychic impact takes control. Zatanna tags along for the ride. The Flash, the Atom, and Green Lantern also answer the distress call.

Initially denying sending the distress call, the Batman appears to the robot to kill the other JLAers, but the robot has been tricked with android duplicates of the team.

Upon realizing this, the robot summons the Assemblers, four superheroes surviving from Angor, Jack B. Quick, Blue Jay, Silver Sorceress, and Wandjina, to attack the Justice League. Each tackles their most likely counterpart, until Blue Jay is severely injured. This snaps Zatanna out of her mind control, and she uses her magic to healing, removing a protective shield from herself to do so. The danger Zatanna puts herself in brings the Justice League back to their senses and enables them to combine forces and defeat the robot.
