Synopsis for "Comings and Goings"

The Atom waits for Agent Bailey in his secure office, and turns down Bailey's offer of joining the C.I.A. Bailey is too shocked to say much to Ray, who jumps into the phoneline, but lets slip to Agent Stevens that he was responsible for Operation Fireball.[1]

Calling from Langley, the Atom jumps out of the phone in Manhattan's Justice League International Embassy, and surprises Oberon who explains that the League has changed since Ray's tenure; and that all members are away in space anyway. Maxwell Lord sees an opportunity, and asks The Atom to join the J.L.I. For the second time that day, the Atom turns a membership down.

In San Clemente, an old foe watches and thanks his luck that the Atom has not joined the J.L.I...

Old friends Ralph and Sue Dibny vacation in Cape Pachter, and Ray Palmer travels the phone lines to their hotel. All have a great time distracting and capturing some well-armed parrot smugglers, before the smugglers are turned over to the Coast Guard.

The trio of heroes are mobbed by media back at the hotel, but the photographers don't recognize Ray out of costume. But someone in San Clemente does. Chronos, Master of Time has completed his new costume, and when he holds the old costume in his new gauntlets, it disintegrates at his touch.
