Those members of the JSA that were affected by the deadly waters of the Koehaha River, namely Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Atom and Hawkman, have all returned to the Ultra-Humanite’s secret base where he taunts them by asking them to bend the knee and only then will he give them more of that addictive liquid. Soon enough though, the Infinitors gather together as a team finally, all of them headed towards the same destination so that they might free their mentors and family members from the influence of the Ultra-Humanite. That sounds easier said than done as Roy Thomas and Jerry Ordway present the final chapter of The Generations Saga, a story made up primarily of one large battle between the two groups and it is a fight that does not go so well for the team called Infinity Inc. The Justice Society have had years to perfect their teamwork but that is when the Silver Scarab notices that they are not actually working as a team, neither one of the groups and so he directed his compatriots to do just that and aid each other against their respective opponents so that they might come out on top. This, of course, begins to work as Scarab knew it would and soon, the JSA lies defeated before them but that does not account for the Ultra-Humanite who looks to release the deadly river upon them all. Before that is to happen though, there is one last surprise as there are still two members of Infinity Inc. missing from the action and they make a startling return thanks to Brainwave who harnesses their collective power to open the gates of Limbo and draw them within so that the Ultra-Humanite might be defeated. With the ending to this last chapter, the first big story-arc of Infinity Inc. finally comes to a conclusion, one long in the coming but one that wraps things up quite nicely with both the villain defeated and like all great epics, a bit of tragedy too. While it might not make most readers feel too bad, it does make them feel for one specific member of the cast and yet, it pushes the character forward and positions him in a better place than he had been before. Though it might have been slightly drawn out as a whole, the Generations saga turned out to be entertaining overall and well worth a look for those who might be a fan of these heroes.
