There are not too many members of the JSA or the All-Star’s left, and those that are do battle with various villains on two fronts.  After said battles are done, they meet up with Brainwave Jr. who knows many things, including the story behind Ultra’s current power bid and how he/she is receiving help from himself/herself in the future.  Soon, our heroes combined forces and the Infinity Inc. team are on their way to confront Ultra’s villainy and rescue their respective teammates.  Roy Thomas and Jerry Ordway deliver another action-packed issue featuring our many heroes and it is amazing how the two of them are able to put as much as they do into one book.  One single issue of All-Star Squadron would almost equal two or three issues of a modern day comic book.  There is so much going on in each and every issue, they definitely give you your money and time’s worth when reading one of these books.  While this particular issue was good, it felt a little unneeded for the simple fact that very little happened to advance the main story aside from finding out how Ultra is able to do what he is doing.  It is rare to find a story as such from Thomas, but such as it was, the elements that were essential could have been folded into the concluding issue of the story instead of an entirely extra chapter.  Still, the book was quite interesting and it is always good to see these heroes in action.
