Justice League of America #100 (8/1972)
Original comic book panel digitally altered and expanded for this presentation.
As a who's who of the Silver Age DC Universe's premier heroes prepared for the Justice League's celebration of their 100th meeting as a team, "countless light-years away, there stands a man who will miss the meeting..." Founding member J'onn J'onzz was regretfully unable to attend. "I'd give almost anything to be with my Earth-Friends on this day of days-- but there are more important things for me to do here! The Martian Manhunter has to rebuild a world!" After all, the Alien Atlas had just been reunited with his fellow Martians in exile two months earlier, after their planet of origin was rendered uninhabited three years previous by the genocidal Commander Blanx.
"The Unknown Soldier of Victory!" was by Len Wein, Dick Dillin & Joe Giella.
