  1. The Wizard is the most evil because he didn’t stop for directions

  2. It is. Ultraman returns for DC Comics Presents Annual #1 in 1982 and Owlman joins the rest for the JLA/JSA/ All-Star Squadron crossover later that year.

  3. I’m just waiting for Star Sapphire to get her hands on the Wizard

  4. They were all too quick

  5. My favorite cliffhanger is #6

That Action Comic reminds me I need to specify to my adult children I’m looking forward to getting that Superman car from Super Powers collection at Walmart.

I made sure to pick up that particular comic book recently as well as the Superman Family one that you show here.

I’ve got to give it to The Wizard which is saying something since this issue was full of villainy. His treatment of Star Sapphire and his schemes to wreak havoc on multiple Earths puts him over the top, though.

When I first read this question, I thought to myself, “Well, that can’t be true… right?” But it is! It is very strange to me that characters as great as the Crime Syndicate sat dormant for over 13 years. Good on Conway for bringing them back!

Power Ring vs. Reverse-Flash was the best battle in this one. The other two were ambushes. Reverse-Flash had to use the afterimage effect of his speed to trick and defeat Power Ring. Cool strategy!

That would have to be Super-Woman vs. Blockbuster and Star Sapphire. Super-Woman is so powerful and ruthless that the fight could have been a real barn-burner. Instead, she gets clocked in the face by a statue and it’s all over before it began… Disappointing.

Ummm… yeah, I’d say so. Considering Captain Comet is about to fend off an evil Justice League and the fact that I currently cannot remember any of the other cliff-hangers from this series means I’ll say that this one is my favorite.
