Sins of Youth: JLA, Jr. #1 is a one-shot
Synopsis for "You Gotta Be Kidding!"
The JLA have been turned into teenagers by Klarion. With the help of Anarky, they're able to escape the angry crowds and Point Men, and retreat to the Justice League Watchtower. Meanwhile, Klarion summons Amazo and turns him into a teen.
Martian Kidhunter finds Klarion telepathically, but is unable to learn anything from the witch boy. Li'l Captain Marvel then suggests they visit the wizard Shazam, but he refuses to help them. Frustrated by this, Superman Jr. decides to return to Metropolis.
