Synopsis for "No Man Shall I Call Master!"

Captain Comet, a hero from the 1950's, returns to Earth after a long absence and stumbles onto a battle between Green Lantern and Grodd and Hi-Jack. Comet mistakes Green Lantern for the aggressor and helps the villains defeat him. They take him to the Sinister Citadel, where the duped hero is voted into the Secret Society. However, Manhunter reveals the group's true nature to Comet in secret, and tells him of his own misgivings about the Society. Soon afterward, Manhunter shows the Society members an installation of Darkseid, their secret benefactor. They are confronted by Darkseid's minion Mantis and his slaves, who offer them the choice to surrender willingly to the domination of the Lord of Apokolips, or die.
