The Creature Commandos and the new Justice League International are in the midst of a melee at the Justice League Headquarters in the Great Australian Desert. Booster Gold enjoys the luxury of an impenetrable force field as he commands his teammates, Blue Beetle, Captain Atom, and Rocket Red, in battle.
