Synopsis for "Conquerors of the Future"
In Paris, France, Hal Jordan (Green Lantern, takes a subway. But the controls to the tracks aren't working, so Green Lantern tries to stop two trains from colliding. However, Green Lantern's nemesis, Sinestro, arrives and saves the two trains by using his ring to put a spring between them. Green Lantern and the Engineer couldn't believe what they had seen. Meanwhile, two bank robbers rob a bank in Gotham City, but Batman and Robin arrive to catch them. The robbers blast through the wall to escape, then the Toyman appears and sends a wind-up policeman after them. The toy pops one of the robbers' tires, giving the police the time to catch the crooks.
Meanwhile, a blimp in Metropolis gets punctured by a skyscraper and Wonder Woman and Hawkman are on the job. But when Wonder Woman is blown off the blimp and sent falling to the ground, Gorilla Grodd saves her and Bizarro brings the blimp to the ground. Grodd explains to Hawkman that they're tired of fighting the Superfriends and losing. So they've become the 'Legion of Good'.
Later, at the Hall of Justice, the Prime Minister of England tells the Superfriends that after the Crown Jewels were stolen, the Legion of Doom captured the crooks and returned the jewels, the Superfriends could hardly believe the Legion could ever turn good. Then, a distress call comes from the planet Centaur, calling for the Superfriends. But then, Luthor assures them that he and the Legion were already on the way, but it was a trick. The Legion was going to travel to the future to take over the Earth without Superfriends to stop them. Meanwhile, Riddler goes to leave a clue on Planet Centaur. The Legion of Doom traveled to the year 3984, where strange sub-humans called Barlocks are attacking the Earth's domed capital city. When the Legion of Doom arrives, they are attacked by the Barlocks. But Luthor tells them that they came to conquer the Earth and the Barlocks agree to help.
Meanwhile, back in the present, at the Hall of Justice, the Superfriends realized the Legion of Doom tricked them and that it's too late to help Centaur. When Wonder Woman, Hawkman and Black Vulcan arrive, they find the Riddler's clue; "We'll slip through your fingers if you give us the room, so be very careful or you'll end up in a tomb." The three heroes chase the Hall of Doom into space, where it explodes and is revealed to be an inflated decoy. But the gas that filled it started braking down the heroes' molecules. Meanwhile, back in the future, the Legion of Doom and the Barlocks trick the Earth's rulers and take control of the city and the planet. Back in the present, Black Vulcan saves Hawkman, Wonder Woman and himself from being spread across space. Wonder Woman contacted the other Superfriends and played the Riddlers clue for them. Batman and Robin realized the clue pointed to the pyramids of Egypt and go there.
Back in 3984, the Legion of Doom enjoyed their newly conquered planet. They had gold, jewels and statues erected in their honors. But Luthor and Grodd sought to consolidate their power to control the entire universe. Back in the 20th century, Batman and Robin arrived at the pyramids of Egypt, where the Riddler tried to trap them inside a tomb. However, they were able to escape and found that Riddler left them another clue: "You've escaped with your lives, but to us you're long dead. If you bet we can find us we'll be a dollar ahead." This clue gave Batman the conclusion that the Legion went 10,000 years into the future. After telling this to Flash, Green Lantern and Superman, they use their powers to disappear into the future. When they arrive, they find that Earth's civilization is gone and the planet is ruled by giant mutant insects who are resistant to the Superfriends' powers.
Back in 3984, the Legion of Doom led attack fleets of Barlocks and starships across the galaxy. With very little opposition, the Legion conquered the whole galaxy. Meanwhile, Flash, Green Lantern and Superman escape near death, but realized the Legion of Doom could be anywhere in the future. After wandering into a library's ruins, they find a history of the year 2000 to 7000. They found that the Legion conquered the planet in 3984. So they disappear back through time and find the Legion in 3984. After their fleets regrouped, the Legion sought to conquer the universe. However, Flash, Green Lantern and Superman out fought them and their Barlock allies. After returning the Earth to its rightful rulers, they took the Legion back to the present and placed them in jail.
