Crisis on Infinite Earths #4: Pt. 33
Previously in Infinity Inc. #18…
A Harbinger replicant recruits Obsidian to fight Monitor’s war…
In Infinity Inc. #19, Scarab tells other team members the story of Obsidian’s disappearance…
They are distracted, though, by something outside the window. “It’s… the sky! It’s turned red!”
Commander Steel, who disappeared more than 40 years ago in the middle of World War II appears out of nowhere with a robotic companion, Mekanique. He tells members of Infinity, Inc. that he had been transported to Earth-1, where he lived as his alter ego, Hank Heywood.
He’s here now, though, to ask them to return with him to help fight a battle against “a bunch of super-powered young criminals who’ve taken over from the original crew, and now call themselves the ‘new’ Justice League. (Apparently he doesn’t know that they are the new Justice League.)
In Gotham City of Earth-2, “home turf of the super-hero group that started the whole damn thing: The Justice Society of America,” Dr. Fate explains the scope of the crisis to Wonder Woman, Hawkman and Flash (Jay Garrick).
In what’s billed as “the last JLA-Justice Society team-up,” Infinity Inc. arrives in Detroit with Commander Steel and Mekanique, where a seven-page fight ensues between the two teams.
