Synopsis for "Balance of Power!"

Libra was a secret founder of the group of super-villains named the Injustice Gang. He constructed an unusual device that enabled him to steal half the powers or energies of a given person. By the end of the first appearance, it was revealed that their entire operation was massive feint by their organizer, Libra, to test a power-stealing device of his. A series of "Plan B" devices the villains had been given in case the JLA defeated them absorbed half of the heroes' powers and transferred them to Libra. Satisfied with these results, he then turned his device upon the universe itself, hoping to become a god. Instead, Libra was absorbed into the universe itself, effectively disintegrating him and spreading his essence across the cosmos.

Synopsis for "The Black Star Shines!"

John Pemberton brings his son Sylvester to the bank where he works in the hopes of getting him interested in a financial career. While there, Sylvester and the family chauffeur Pat Dugan notice five suspicious-looking individuals working on a water main outside the bank. These men are not really construction workers, but small-time criminals who go by the names of Falseface, Captain Bigg, Hopper, the Brain and the Rattler. The thugs deliberately burst a water main, forcing tons of pressurized water to blast open the side of the bank wall. They steal the money from the bank, then disguise themselves as police officers to make their getaway. Back at their lair, the thugs respond to a pre-recorded message from their ringleader the Black Star. The Black Star is pleased with their progress and gives them their next mission - all of which take place in different cities.

Meanwhile, Sylvester and Pat, having borne witness to this crime change into their costumed identities as the Star-Spangled Kid and Stripesy and unit with the other Legionnaires. These Seven Soldiers of Victory investigate the crime, and Green Arrow manages to track down their getaway vehicle as well its driver , Mowse. They also recover footage of the Black Star's recorded instructions and learn where the thieves will strike next. They each decide to split up and go after each criminal in turn.

Synopsis for "Mystery of the Santa Claus Pirate!"

A strange man known as the Santa Claus Pirate assemble a crew and begins attacking yachts off the coast of Key West. But rather than robbing these ships for their valuables, the Santa Claus Pirate instead gives them treasure chests filled with jewels. His crew question his actions, but the Santa Claus Pirate assures them that these are just measures that will yield greater riches down the road. The Santa Claus Pirate continues boarding ships in such a manner, and within a short period of time, yacht captains actually begin to welcome the pirate's approach.

Meanwhile, Sylvester Pemberton and Pat Dugan come to Key West. They know that one of the Black Star's agents is active in the area and they soon learn about the Santa Claus Pirate.

Before long, the Santa Claus Pirate attacks and boards a ship owned by a Mister Dolan. Instead of giving them treasure however, his crew holds him at gunpoint, forcing him to surrender more than two million dollars in bonds from the ship's vault. When they open the vault, they find the Star-Spangled Kid and Stripesy waiting for them. The heroes fight against the pirates, but the Santa Claus Pirate defeats them. He ties them to a buoy in the middle of the sea and leaves them for dead. The Kid and Stripesy manage to escape and they use the Star-Rocket Racer to track the pirate ship down. They succeed in apprehending the pirate crew, and when they unmask the Santa Claus Pirate, they find that it is actually the Black Star agent Captain Bigg (who in reality is a man named Doctor Yates, the head of a marine biology laboratory in the Keys).

As Captain Bigg is taken away, the Black Star acknowledges his underling's defeat, but muses to himself that everything is still going according to his ultimate design.
