All-Star Comics 70 - the Huntress meets the Justice Society

The Huntress meets the some of the Justice Society of America in the Levitz, Staton and Layton story from All-Star Comics 70 (Jan/Feb 78).

The top of the story serves as an epilogue to the events of the past few issues. Hawkman chairs a meeting with the current and former members of the team, which re-iterates Superman's support for Power Girl taking his place with the Society. Bruce Wayne and Robin make friends with everyone, and then they, Starman, Hourman, Wonder Woman and Dr. Mid-Nite take off to return to inactive status. The Flash offers the now-unemployed Green Lantern a job at his labs. Hawkman and Dr. Gate also take off, leaving Power Girl, Wildcat and Star-Spangled Kid to mind the store.

Although the Spectre never appears during this run of All-Star, Jim Corrigan does make a cameo in this story, as part of the police called in when a group armed with super weapons, the Strike Force, rob a bank.

Wildcat and Star-Spangled Kid head to a bar in their civilian guises to knock back a few and get into a bar brawl, but catch the news of the Strike Force's attack, and head out to try and stop it. They just wind up getting captured. Shouldn't drink and fight crime.

Dr. Fate returns to his tower to find Inza Nelson all upset about a new subplot beginning here.

And as the story ends the Huntress shows up to try to rescue Wildcat and the Kid, but the Strike Force show up to stop her.

The story continues in the next issue.
