Synopsis for Superman & Batman: "The Joy-Bringers!"

While tracking down the Weapon-Master’s lost stash of weaponry that he first stole from the Fortress of Solitude and was later found and auctioned by criminals, Batman and Superman find the time-displacer at the hands of some low profile thugs. The heroes take down most of the criminals, but one of them activates the weapon and sends Batman back in time, forcing Superman to travel through the Timestream to Earth’s prehistory, when a group of magicians are preparing the planet for human life.

Batman and Superman find themselves involved in various capers, helping the magicians to accomplish their goals. Once they have solved most problems in the past, the heroes return to the present, where they finally recover the weapon and arrest the criminals.

Synopsis for "Green Arrow and Black Canary"

Mrs. Hollinger, seeking revenge on Green Arrow for killing her hoodlum son (in FLASH #217), has Black Canary kidnapped by GA’s enemy Slingshot. She then has a note informing Green Arrow of the kidnapping sent to Ollie Queen, with one of Slingshot’s pellets and the Canary’s choker enclosed. Before he gets to Slingshot, GA first has to fight his way through a gang of street punks also hired by Mrs. Hollinger, one of whom snatches the blunt-ended stun arrows from his quiver and replaces them with identically-marked arrows that have deadly pointed ends on them. Mrs. Hollinger intends to have Green Arrow accidentally kill Slingshot, figuring that, as her son’s killing drove GA mad with guilt, a second accidental homicide will drive him insane. And, as GA confronts Slingshot, he draws one of the gimmicked arrows and does appear to kill him.

Synopsis for Hawkman: "Doctor Katar and Mister Plert"

To show his gratitude, Plert wants do all he can to help, but a tired and irritated Katar loses his temper. Struck by meteors, the ship loses control, and Katar must make quick repairs, but Plert again gets in the way, causing Hawkman to lose his temper severely. He hits Plert, which enrages the little alien, and causes a transformation. Plert swells up, becoming incredibly strong, and very savage. He attacks Katar, and starts damaging the ship. Hawkman tries to reason with him, but to no avail, and the battle only ends when Plert puts his fist through the hull, and they are both sucked out into hyperspace. Katar catches a line and pulls himself back in, but weariness overcomes him, ad he loses consciousness. When he wakes, Shayera is sitting next to him on a bed in her ship. She says she has returned the Armada, and they are going home together.
