Résumé: Chris Claremont (Uncanny X-Men), Chuck Austen (ACTION COMICS) and Joe Kelly (JUSTICE LEAGUE ELITE) showcase the trials and tribulations that come with being the World’s Greatest Heroes.
The JLA investigates a rash of child disappearances, but soon begin to disappear themselves! Before long, Superman is brainwashed and in the hands of a fanatic cult that worships an ancient vampiric evil. Who are the mysterious powerful beings that have been shadowing the JLA—friend, foe or something entirely different?
Then Superman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Wonder Woman and Batman each are forced to face a time when they were unable to save an innocent or prevent disaster. Like police officers and firefighters who share a bond only their brethren can understand, the JLA members must help each other process the pain and go on with their mission—and their lives.
