From Series: JLA (Vol 1)
The Key has the Justice League trapped and living in virtual reality dreamworlds. He has finally figured out the equation of the DC Universe: The heroes always win. So he’s set up a device which will be powered by the Justice League realizing they’re unconscious and allow The Key to enter Negative Space. There he will be the ruler of all reality (he assumes).
Meanwhile the newest Justice League recruit, Green Arrow (Connor Hawke), has been fighting his way through the Justice League watchtower to save his teammates. He’s armed only with the original Green Arrow and his father: Ollie Queen’s trick arrows. Handcuff and boxing glove arrows aren’t the best for fighting robots but Green Arrow is making the best of the situation.
In their own dream worlds, the members of the Justice League are starting to meet each other and figure out they are in a dream (still unaware they are suppooosed to figure this out). Batman’s dream of The Joker killing his son (weird) is stopped by Superman (Clark Kent) who has dreamed he is the Green Lantern of Krypton. Wonder Woman (Diana of Themyscira) transports from her Indiana Jones dream into Aquaman’s Waterworld dream which is a lesser movie so it is a bad dream moving decision there.
When Green Lantern shows up as his dream version of himself, a 90’s super hero mismash of names, numbers, and backstory, Batman makes fun of him for being a baby.
The remaining team wake up together with Batman realizing too late they needed to stay asleep to keep from falling into The Key’s trap. As the portal to the negative space opens and The Key is about to take a step into his omnipotence, Green Arrow knocks him in the face with a boxing glove arrow. Everyone involved agrees it is ridiculous.
The issue ends with Batman and Superman having an awkward moment together on the roof.
