Amanda Waller summons Steve Trevor to her office. She shows him the picture of Superman and Wonder Woman kissing that Booster Gold sent right before he disappeared. Waller is concerned that the two most powerful beings on the planet having a relationship could be dangerous (what if they break up? what if they have kids? what if they decide to take over? etc.) She is starting a new Justice League of America to help defend the country and to be a fail-safe against the Justice League. She wants Trevor to be its field leader.
The prospective members are Hawkman (Katar Hol, police officer of the planet Thanagar), Katana (Tatsu Toro, master assassin avenging her husband's murder while talking to ghost which inhabits her sword), Vibe (eighteen year old Cisco Ramon, dimensional powers via an encounter with a boom tube that killed his brother), Stargirl (high schooler Courtney Whitmore, current possesser of the Cosmic Staff), Martian Manhunter, a new Green Lantern, Green Arrow, and Catwoman.
Green Arrow is then brought into the infirmary. He's been beat up pretty bad. He says it was the Secret Society.
