8.5 out of 10 - salloria
Xotar, a super criminal from 10,000 years in the future travels back in time to take on the Justice League of America. Eager to test out his 4 weapons, he's determined to discover which weapon will ultimately lead to the League's doom, and according to historical information chronicled by Wonder Woman herself, he's assured victory!

With a time-traveling villain who likes to lead his prey with riddles, Gardner Fox creates a character that is a worthy opponent for the Justice League. While not detracting from the story, Fox also educates readers on some of the details surrounding each hero's abilities, like Martian Manhunter's inability to use his power while he's invisible.

Mike Sekowsky takes a step away from the more detailed work here, and instead is unleashed on scenes from the far future as well as alien terrain. His pencils are exotic, and yet the Justice League never looks out of place, which is testament to how well he knows the characters. Once again, his art is a perfect fit for this team book.

Sadly, both Superman and Batman are once again not part of the action, for the most part. The plot point that Superman is unable to heed Snapper Carr's distress signal because he was time traveling himself - and Batman's ability to not only figure that out but to track Big Blue down - is a little tough to swallow, but overall, another solid issue.
