Despero finally reaches Earth, but this is a Despero unlike any the Justice League of America has ever seen before, and even the combined power of the Conglomerate and the JLA may not be enough to stop Despero’s murderous rampage! Which one of our heroes will pay the ultimate price in the final showdown?
As the Justice League of America lays low for a while in order to figure out what Maxwell Lord’s game is, the Conglomerate gets a new member and leader, the World War II-era patriotic mystery-man known as General Glory! But the truth is that this supposedly All-American hero is none other than Lobo, the ruthless bounty hunter feared in three galaxies, and the JLA soon begins to see through the cracks! As the Conglomerate overtakes the JLA in popularity, can the world’s greatest super-heroes get it together before the transformed Despero reaches Earth? Guest starring Adam Strange!
At the end of the Crisis on Infinite Earths, the Justice League of America consisted of Steel, the Elongated Man, and the Martian Manhunter. Can this truly be the final chapter of the JLA?

But when things come to a head between Green Arrow and Hawkman, the new League may be over before it starts. And just what is the mysterious Maxwell Lord and his Conglomerate team up to anyway? Can they eclipse the new JLA before it has really begun? Guest starring Batman and the Outsiders, and featuring the first appearances of the new Wonder Woman and the Beetle!
