Synopsis for "History of Doom"

Three aliens (Manatu, Suba, and Rano) arrive on a ruined Earth and make their way to the Hall of the Justice. There they learn via the computer that Superman was the last survivor of a great disaster caused by the Legion of Doom. They then use the computer to learn the history of Lex Luthor, Giganta, the formation of both the Super Friends and Legion of Doom, as well as part of the events of The Giants of Doom and Revenge on Gorilla City. However the remaining tapes are damaged and so they seek out and find the Hall of Doom.

There they learn that Luthor caused a solar flare and to prevent Superman from intercepting the flare turns the sun red. The Super Friends turn on the planetary forcefield but discover to their horror that the flare interacts with the forcefield forming a radioactive energy belt that causes the Earth break up.

Manatu uses his mental powers to turn time back and Suba states that it seems that the Superfriends will simply relive the same fate so Manatu uses his mental powers to move the moon to block the flare. Superman comments that the Legion of Doom should have checked their almanac and Luthor appears on the view screen saying they did check the lunar tables and there was no eclipse for that day.
