Captain Triumph was pleased that his first new case had brought him into contact with two legendary mystery-men and a newcomer as well. As he dialed the contact number Paragon had provided him, he also hoped this Queen Arrow would accept him on her new team.
“Hello, is this Diana Dare?” he asked. “I’m Captain Triumph, and I have a proposition for you.”
The Sandman and Hourman returned to the hospital to comfort their friend Dr. Charles McNider in his grief and to assure him that the Miraclo murders had been solved. Plus, they hoped to talk to Al Pratt, who had news of his own, according to the vague hints dropped by McNider.
Meanwhile, Paragon returned to his All-Star Squadron files and was happy that he had met another legend from the nearly forgotten past. He hoped he would one day be one of them.
Elsewhere, a German-accented voice registered disapproval.
“Bah! The Z-solution and the genetic monsters have been lost to us, thanks to those cursed All-Stars!” said a masked man. “After forty years, they return again to haunt me! I had hopes that we could use the creations for an army of our own!”
“But Armageddon, we have time on our side, yes?” laughed a man in a metal mask. “Plus, they little know that we have returned, and that will prove their undoing.”
A second metal-masked figure nodded and smoked via a long cigarette holder. Two others sat in shadows and listened to the talk of their leaders.
This union would prove most dangerous for both the JSA and the entire All-Star Squadron.
