Justice League of America #116 is an issue of the series Justice League of America (Volume 1) with a cover date of March, 1975.

Synopsis for "The Kid Who Won Hawkman's Wings!"

Answering the Justice League mail, Green Arrow investigates a letter from an orphaned teenager, who claims to have powers like those of his idol, Hawkman, and to have become a crimefighter in Midway City. GA arrives in Midway City just in time to help young Charley Parker, alias Golden Eagle, escape a trap set by Hawkman's old enemy, the Matter Master, who has mistaken the youth for the real Winged Wonder. Batman, Elongated Man, Flash, and Aquaman join Green Arrow to battle a series of threats unleashed by the Matter Master's Meniachem wand, while Golden Eagle finds himself transported to the villain's hideway, where the Matter Master sits in a state like suspended animation while causing his wand to engage the Justice League heroes. Awakening to the realization that Golden Eagle is not the real Hawkman at all, and that his wand is responsible for Charley's acquiring super-powers (in unconscious anticipation of the villain's wish to battle and defeat a hero resembling Hawkman), the Matter Master is about to destroy Golden Eagle when the JLA intervenes and defeats him. As the case is closed and Parker returned to normal, the real Hawkman unexpectedly returns.

Synopsis for "The Challenge of the Untouchable Aliens!"

This story is reprinted from Justice League of America #15.

While in their civilian guises Wonder Woman and Superman visit a flying military fortress, when it suddenly is knocked out of the sky. The two save the crew, but the ships primary weapon is removed and aimed at Central City. It is ultimately stopped by the two with the aid of the Flash. Deciding to solve the mystery behind the cannon, the trio call together the rest of the Justice League, and all agree to aid in figuring out the cause of the strange events.

Splitting up into groups they come across a series of stone giants whom are partially intangible, each group collecting devices that threaten to destroy various cities on Earth. These beings actually come from an alternate universe comprised of anti-matter which is slowly losing its vibrational sync causing it to merge with the Justice League's Earth. The result would cause the destruction of both worlds. The giants hope to destroy the cities on the JLA's Earth to avoid said catastrophe.

When the creatures were able to will the Green Lantern's power ring out of his hands due to their supreme will power, they played into the Lantern's trap, allowing the JLA to follow the stone creatures to their own reality. Realizing the truth of the situation, and that any attempt to move the giants cities would cause a powerful nuclear explosion (caused by bombs placed in the buildings that would be used against any invaders) the JLA instead work together with the giants to prevent their worlds from merging, with Green Lantern restoring the vibrational barrier between worlds with his power ring.
