Synopsis for "Conquerors"

Aquaman is about to try and communicate with a giant star-shaped being at the bottom of the sea. Meanwhile, Flash runs to see Batman, who is dissecting a smaller such being. Batman tells Flash it is a parasitical machine likely designed to locate and prepare suitable hosts, colonizing the host minds, taking control of the body and finally the planet's eco-system. The League then learns that there are more of the star-shaped beings in the atmosphere. Elsewhere, Superman and Wonder Man fight civilians who have had their bodies taken over by the smaller star shaped beings.

When Aquaman encounters trouble, Orion attacks the star shaped being at the bottom of the sea, and is blown skyward by an energy blast. Zauriel then arrives and saves Aquaman.

The League wake up from their Starro-induced dream; Starro has retreated from Earth after encountering too much resistance.

One month later, Hippolyta bids her farewell to the League now that her daughter Diana has reclaimed her place as the team's Wonder Woman. Just as Superman escorts Hippolyta to the JLA Watchtower's teleporter, seven strangers materialize in front of the League and introduce themselves as the Justice Legion A, hailing from the future.



Notes

  • The Justice League of America appears next in DC One Million #1.
  • The final two pages, which lead into the DC One Million crossover, are missing from nearly every subsequent reprint and re-release of this issue, namely the JLA: Strength in Numbers trade paperback, the JLA Vol. 3 trade paperback and even the digital version available via ComiXology. (The pages are also not included in the DC One Million trade paperback, the JLA One Million reprint or the DC One Million Omnibus hardcover or trade paperback collections). The only reprint of this issue that does include those two pages is the JLA Deluxe Edition Vol. 3 hardcover. The DC One Million lead-in aside, this omission is particularly glaring because those two pages also feature the return of Diana as the team's Wonder Woman, as well as the departure of her mother Hippolyta.
