Synopsis for "Kid Stuff"
Morgaine le Fey enters a shrine where a statue holds the Amulet of First Magic, with which she could build her son Mordred a kingdom. She uses her magic to make the statue's hand unclench long enough for Mordred to grab the amulet. But no sooner does he get the amulet, though, then Mordred chooses to cast a spell using the amulet's power to make all adults older than he is disappear, including his mother. Soon schoolrooms are without teachers, children are without parents, and even young graffiti artists are without policemen to enforce law and order. The Justice League, who are in the middle of a fight with some supervillains, also find themselves and their enemies transported to the same place all the adults in the world went -- into another dimension, where groups of adults are stationed on islands of rock. Morgaine appears unto the four Justice League members to explain how this happened, and that she can't undo any of this because the Amulet of First Magic is more powerful than any of her magics. What she can do is send the four Justice League members back into the adult-less world as young children -- something Green Lantern doesn't like, but the other three are willing to take the chance.
After Mordred turns a local park into his own dark amusement center for children, though having to put up with granting them their wishes, the Justice League members reenter the world as children and attempt to take on Mordred with a frontal assault in his own chambers. Mordred, however, overpowers them and has them sent into a dungeon where they see Etrigan has been turned into an infant. They escape their prison and attempt to get the Amulet of First Magic away from Mordred while he is sleeping, but even that plan doesn't work, as Mordred is awakened by their presence. Green Lantern uses his ring to turn himself into a giant robot to take on Mordred, but Mordred counters that by turning himself into a giant armored knight and disintegrates the energy ring robot. The Justice League, however, does succeed in getting the Amulet from Mordred, which Etrigan destroys by chewing on it with his mouth, shrinking Mordred back down to human size. By then, Mordred says he has already absorbed enough power from the amulet to do whatever he wants. The Justice League members taunt Mordred into using his power to make himself into an adult, which he does, only to find himself transported into the same dimension his mother and all the other adults were transported to, powerless to escape.
With Mordred removed, all his magic spells were soon undone: the dark amusement center is now a serene local park again, and all the adults have returned. Morgaine appears unto the Justice League members and restores them to their adult ages, with Etrigan also back in his adult state. She tells them that Mordred had broken the spell that gave him eternal youth, and now all he has is eternal life. After she departs, Wonder Woman looks at all the children happily playing in the park and comments that it was fun being a child again. Batman, out of some envy for his situation, says he hasn't been a child since he was eight.
And in a dark castle somewhere in the world, near a fireplace, Morgaine takes care of a now elderly and withered version of her son Mordred, unable to do anything for himself anymore.
