From Series: JLA (Vol 1)
Superman watches Protex of the Hyperclan as he celebrates his invasion of Earth. While Protex gloats, Superman pieces the information together. Everyone with fire powers got sick or went missing right before the Hyperclan showed up. All of the Hyperclan have the same powers. One of those powers is mind control. Kryptonite has been right next to him for a couple hours now. Kryponite kills Superman… wait! Mind control? That kryptonite is not really there!
Realizing the Hyperclan are actually the same beings as The Martian Manhunter, he gets ready to fight Protex.
He fights Protex!
Primaid, seeing things starting to go downhill commands Armek to close the death-torture-flower-thing the Justice League is tied to. But… Oh snap! It’s not really Armek it’s Martian Manhunter who was only pretending to join the Hyperclan. Primaid and J’onn fight but Primaid is too strong for him. Fortunately, he manages to free the Justice League and Wonder Woman is ready throw down.
She fights Primaid in space!
During the scuffle with the remaining members of the Hyperclan, Aquaman makes a bad one-liner. He is so embarrassed he has to the stop the fight for a beat.
With the Hyperclan pretty much beat, Superman takes to the airwaves to inspire everyone to fight back against the aliens. Their weakness is fire so he pretty much commands the world to bust out their copies of the Anarchist Cookbook and get to mischief.
Now that the world has been saved by a billion lunatics, Martian Manhunter is put in charge of punishing the captured White Martians. He traps them all in human forms and wipes their memories, putting them in lives of public service.
If he’s cool doing this to an entire army, why doesn’t he do this to every super villain? Seems like a weird line to draw. “I’ll mind-wipe and enslave my own people, but that dude who routinely tries to melt babies? He gets a pass.”
The Justice League of America then put their new base on the moon because that’s how JLA rolls.
What I Learned From This Comic:
According to the Metaphysical Laws of Howard Porter, if there’s a crowd of people holding up torches then there will be at least one dude holding up a bottle of rum.
