Synopsis for "Another Time! Another Death!"

Immortal Man, foe of Vandal Savage since ancient times, brings together several mostly-inactive heroes in the wake of Savage's causing plant organisms concealed on Superman to spring into life, causing giant vines to menace Metropolis. The Forgotten Heroes have one thing in common: they all saw a great golden temple in their last exploits, knowledge of which was hushed up by the government. Now Immortal Man tells them that in order to defeat the plant menace, they must destroy Superman.



Notes

  • On page 17 panel 1 Abraxas was spelled wrong on the building. It was spelled Abraxus.

Trivia

  • The Suicide Squad was disbanded after they reported finding a golden temple in the mountains of Cambodia.
