Justice #1 (October, 2005)
A variety of super-villains had a dream in which the world died by fire, and the Justice League could save no one. Martian Manhunter was the second hero from the team shown to be dying. His morphing body contorted into an horrific thing, a blood tear in one of his eyes. The unseen, critical narrator clarified "The Martian is dead, the last of his race of shape-shifters. This day is the death of races." The villains awoke, and took action.
In the true day's light, the Justice League of America lived on, defending the Earth under normal circumstances. The Alien Atlas was joined by Superman, Plastic Man, Green Lantern Hal Jordan, Red Tornado, Aquaman, the Atom, Green Arrow Oliver Queen, Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, Black Canary, the Flash, Batman, Hawkman and Hawkgirl.

"Chapter One" was plotted and painted by Alex Ross. The script was provided by Jim Krueger, and the penciled layouts by Doug Braithwaite.
