Synopsis for "The Cosmic Fun-House!"
This story is reprinted from Justice League of America #7.
When Snapper Carr takes his girlfriend, Midge, out to see the new carnival that set up in Happy Harbor, they stumble upon a doorway which transports them to another world. Calling the Justice League for help, Snapper and his date are rescued by Superman, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman. Relating his story to the entire League when returned to Earth, Snapper's adventure prompts the Justice League to send Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and Flash to check out the carnival in their civilian guises.
They stumble upon a plot by the Angellaxians, a long dormant alien race, to retrieve a space probe launched 100,000 years ago to gather the weapons technology of the universe that will finish its journey on Earth. To avoid being foiled by Earth's inhabitants, the Angellaxians set up a fun house on the outskirts of Happy Harbor to teleport the town's inhabitants to a distant world while they take their places in disguise to retrieve the space probe when it lands. The fun house also soon doubles as a foil for the Justice League, who take up an investigation of Snapper's experience. Taking Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and Flash prisoner, the Angellaxians use their advanced technology to make two of their members look like Green Lantern and Flash and work to trap the rest of the Justice League. However, while trying to trick Aquaman in the same trap, the captured League members manage to break free, and although their physical forms are distorted by a cosmic fun-house mirror, they manage to stop the impostors and their plot to take over the universe.

Synopsis for "The Last Case of the Justice League!"
This story is reprinted from Justice League of America #12.
Answering his JLA signal belt, Snapper Carr arrives at the Justice League sanctuary to find only a new costumed foe, Doctor Light. Light explains to Snapper that he built a device that uses light to transport it's victims to other dimensions. He used the heroes' signal devices to get the rest of the Justice League to meet and banished them to other dimensions. After forcing Snapper to write the final case file of the Justice League, Light uses his powers to freeze Snapper.
Meanwhile, each hero finds themselves trapped on a different world: Aquaman on a world where there is no water; Martian Manhunter on a world of fire; Flash on a crystal world where there is no balance; Wonder Woman on a world where the brain functions differently, Green Lantern on a world that is entirely yellow, Superman on a world with a red sun, and Batman on a world where his scientific gadgets will not work. However, things are not as they seem: Before being banished to other worlds, Superman and Batman were working together on a case and Superman used his x-ray vision to see ahead and learned of Dr. Light's plot, so he and Batman traded costumes.
Having been banished to Batman's intended world, Superman is able to get away and rescue the others and bring them back to Earth. There they save Snapper and split up to capture Dr. Light. However, each group finds that they have only caught light duplicates of Dr. Light. However, Green Lantern manages to find the real Dr. Light by using his power ring to make it look as though he was destroyed by Light so that he could track and find the real Dr. Light and capture him. Snapper decides to keep the case titled "The Last Case of the Justice League!" because the date which Dr. Light had chosen to attack the League was April 1st, April Fool's Day.
