Synopsis for Justice Society of America: "A Cure for the World"
Doctor Mid-Nite, on his way to the Justice Society of America meeting, sees two boys beating up a third because he attends a different church. Dr. Mid-Nite shows the two aggressors the error of their ways, and takes the third boy with him to the Justice Society meeting. Wondering how to solve the problem of intolerance, the heroes invoke the living spirit of Conscience, who sends the members to different past eras where they assume native identities to battle prejudice of different kinds.
Hawkman becomes Ga, a caveman, and helps a weak artist, who is persecuted because the tribe does not understand his value. Starman becomes Master Theodoratus, a member of the ancient Greek ruling class. He leads a slave army at the battle of Thermopylae to convince the Greeks that slaves are equal to free men. Johnny Thunder becomes Johnny the shepherd in Medieval England. Johnny tries to convince the local Baron that serfs are people. While he fails, he endears himself to the Baron, who makes Johnny his court jester. Johnny is so successful as a jester, helped in large part by the Thunderbolt's tickling of his audience, that the Baron allows him to enter a jousting tournament to prove the worth of all serfs, which Johnny wins and is knighted. The Atom becomes Nathaniel Pratt in Salem during the witch trials. He saves a woman who has fallen of a trail, despite the fact she has been accused of witchcraft. After he takes her home, he fights off an angry mob that have come to kill her. Dr. Mid-Nite becomes Doctor De Nider, a doctor in France during the revolution. He fights off and then convinces an angry mob that the local Duc believes in democracy, and should not be killed merely because is a nobleman. Spectre does not assume a new identity when he travels to New York in 1815. He protects an inventor and his new motor from factory workers who are afraid that the motor will cost them their jobs.
After completing their missions, all the members are drawn back to headquarters, and are able to remember their adventures. Because they were all successful, the spirit of Conscience rewards them by telling them that the solution to intolerance and prejudice is understanding. The Justice Society is then determined to carry on spreading the message of understanding and unity. They start by organizing a rally at the school of the boy Dr. Mid-Nite brought to headquarters.
