Synopsis for "Attack of the Star-Bolt Warrior!"
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 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 brothers demise.
However, there is a side effect to Brain Storm's power, in that whoever it's used on also can access the energies 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 brothers death: The 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 the 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.
