Synopsis for "Crisis on New Genesis" or "Where Have All the New Gods Gone?"

On their way to their annual joint meeting, being held this year simultaneously on Earth-1 and Earth-2, several members of the Justice League and Justice Society are abducted via the Transmatter to New Genesis, home of the New Gods (as seen in New Gods, Forever People, and Mr. Miracle). The New Gods seek their aid after the remaining populace of New Genesis has been kidnapped and enslaved by the minions of Apokolips, the evil world that is New Genesis's counterpart, and they reveal that Apokolips's new allies are the members of the Earth-2 Injustice Society. The heroes split up into teams, composed of one JLA member, one JSA member, and one "New God" each, and speed to various locales to undo the Apokolipsians' evil, only to discover that their ultimate plan is the revival of their late leader, Darkseid.



Notes

  • This issue is chapter one of the annual JLA/JSA team-up.
  • Darkseid appeared last in Adventure Comics #460.
  • The participation of Superman in this story is valid under the Post-Crisis chronology, even before the changes made during Infinite Crisis that restored his status as a JLA founding member. [1]
  • Action Comics #650 retcons this story in a brief flashback but without participation of the Huntress and Wonder Woman.
  • This is Dick Dillin's final issue in his twelve year run as penciller on this title. He died while working on issue 184.
