After an inconsequential crossover with the Suicide Squad, the Justice League takes a moment to relax, with Booster Gold and Blue Beetle visiting Mister Miracle and Big Barda to watch a football game. During this time, the villainous Lord Manga (with his assistant L-Ron) leads his army The Cluster to Earth, offering the world the chance to trade their natural resources with other worlds or have them taken. As the nations of the world argue over what to do in the United Nations, the League comes together to take action, but find themselves shorthanded with both Batman and Black Canary MIA and Guy Gardner off on a side mission of his own. To fill their ranks, Martian Manhunter accepts Green Flame and Ice Maiden’s request to join the League on a probationary basis.
The nonsensical Green Lantern G’nort comes across a planet ravaged by Lord Manga and learns of the attack on Earth and foolishly attacks the fleet by himself. He accidentally destroys Manga’s cloaking device, revealing both the fleet and the device set up in the Australian Outback to drain Earth of its resources. Detecting this, the League splits up with Martian Manhunter, Captain Atom and Rocket Red going after the fleet while Mister Miracle, Blue Beetle, Booster Gold, Green Flame and Ice Maiden head for Australia.
