Synopsis for "The League that Defeated Itself"
Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, and Zatanna, now in the bodies of the Secret Society members, escape imprisonment aboard the JLA satellite, and attempt to return to their true forms. Using the super-villains' powers, they overcome Red Tornado (who naturally: mistakes them for the real villains) and learn the location of the Secret Society headquarters from an incarcerated former member, Hi-Jack. However, their attack is foiled by the appearance of the remaining Justice League heroes, who have been alerted by the five villains masquerading as members. All the heroes-turned-villains are captured, except Zatanna, who escapes in the guise of Star Sapphire.
Reprinted in JLA: The Greatest Stories Ever Told. Hi-Jack's remarks in this about never trusting Funky Flashman and being glad that the Wizard is now leader of the Secret Society are puzzling, as Hi-Jack was actually last seen being banished to another dimension by the Wizard, before Funky Flashman took over as the Society's manager. There is no indication given as to how Hi-Jack returned to Earth or why he is in prison.
