Synopsis for "The Tears of Ra"
Mister Terrific (Michael Holt), Hawkgirl, and Captain Marvel have been transported back in time to 15th Dynasty Egypt, where they face Vandal Savage from five-thousand years ago. He has found the Orb of Ra and has used it to conjure Ahk-Ton and start a war against Prince Khufu. Mister Terrific (Michael Holt), Hawkgirl, and Captain Marvel ally themselves with Prince Khufu, Nabu, Chay-Ara, and Teth-Adam in the fight against Vandal Savage. Nabu sends Captain Marvel and Teth-Adam to the Land of the Dead to call upon the great sun-god Ra for help, and not even Ahk-Ton and Vandal Savage can stand up to a god. Unable to return home, the heroes turn to Nabu for help. The only solution that he can offer is that they go to sleep in a chrysalis, and have an undying wake them up. Black Adam wakes them up in present time, and they re-join their friends in the Justice Society of America. Meanwhile, Doctor Fate returns to Lyta in the hospital with the skull of Lord Wrynn, a former ally of Mordru. He uses the skull to lift the veil of sleep that Mordru has cast only to discover that it is not his wife, but actually a magically-concealed Dove (Dawn Granger)!
