Synopsis for "Justice League of America: 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. However, 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 "Justice League of America: Attack of the Star-Bolt Warrior"

This story is reprinted from Justice League of America #32.

Superman, the Flash, Batman, Atom, and Hawkman are all out on various solo activities when suddenly they lose some of their super-powers and abilities. Amazingly these lost abilities are transferred to a baseball player (who gets Atom's size changing), actress Gloria Kaye (who gains increased mass from Hawkman), a husband (who gains Flash's super speed but can't travel anywhere) a delivery boy (who gains strength and weakens just like Superman), and a French juggler (Who loses his dexterity when Batman does.) Finding the whole experience strange, all the heroes in question learn that it was from some strange stellar energy.

Tracing it to its source, they meet a new super-powered being named Brain Storm. Brain Storm has created a special helmet that allows him to absorb stellar energy which he can create anything with his mind. His invention having warped his mind, Brain Storm witnesses his brother Fred's apparent death. In his twisted ideals, Brain Storm has captured the Justice League so that they may witness him taking justice into his own hands and killing the man responsible for his brother's demise.

However, there is a side effect to Brain Storm's power, in that whoever it's used on also can access the energy's abilities and the JLA members are suddenly mentally linked to the people who had gained their abilities. Transporting them to Brain Storm's base, their arrival frees the Justice League from their trap and they go after Brain Storm.

They battle a bunch of stellar-energy powered dangers, and track him down and realize who's the one Brain Storm blames for his brother's death: Green Lantern. However, Green Lantern explains that due to Brain Storm's interference with Green Lantern's attempt to capture Fred who just robbed a bank, the combination of both their powers transported Fred to France and wiped out his memories.

Bringing Fred to them and restoring his memory, the Justice League convince Brain Storm to end his vendetta against Green Lantern. However, Brain Storm realizes that escape is the best course of action and teleports away without a trace, leaving the JLA to turn his brother over to the police.
