Synopsis for "The Cavern of Deadly Spheres!"

A new criminal named the Maestro has been pulling off crimes by arming his hired thugs with musical instruments that compel all in ear-shot to uncontrollably dance. After each member of the League successfully stop each heist, they decide to take their fight directly to the Maestro himself.

Tracking the Maestro to his hidden cave headquarters, all of the JLA members are trapped in indestructible bubbles (ex. Superman's is made out of Kryptonite). However, it is revealed that this tale came from a fan of the Justice League that challenged himself with imagining how the Justice League might be defeated.

The Justice League answers the challenge and imagines how they might counter their fan's scenario. In the end Atom finds the weakness in the imaginary villain, and they anticipate that Maestro might have access to Superman's weakness. So, in the imaginary tale, the team coats Superman in lead in advance allowing him limited protection to the Kryptonite bubble. While the Maestro is busy gloating over his victory, Superman is able to break free and save the others, and they all easily defeat the Maestro and turn him over to the police.

Once the solution is reached Snapper is tasked with logging the story and sending the Justice League's fan word of how his favorite heroes could even foil his perfect "plan."
