Justice League International (Volume 3) Issue #1 Cover-2

Andre Biggs the Head of United Nations Intelligence and Emerson Esposito his assistant bring a proposal before the Russian, British, and Chinese representatives on the UN’s Global Security Group. Biggs wants to create a new UN controlled super-human group, a Justice League International, as a counterpart to the celebrated, but ultimately independent Justice League. A list of candidates is quickly reviewed with uncooperative elements like the Batman or Green Arrow rejected in favour of more controllable super-humans with known civilian identities. The idea is approved, but Biggs has already contacted the membership candidates and arranged the group’s first meeting. The UN has requisitioned the Justice League’s disused Hall of Justice much to the anger of a a group of protesters who believe that the Hall belongs to the American people and should not be usurped by a dysfunctional elite who do not properly respect their opinions. Booster Gold arrives to meet Biggs and is concerned by the potential for negative publicity. However, Booster is swayed when he’s told that he is going to be the leader of the new group. That news doesn’t go down well with Green Lantern Guy Gardner who storms out. He’s met outside by Batman who asks him to stay he’s suspicious of the UN’s motives but, Guy refuses. The new group’s first mission is to investigate the disappearance of the UN Science Research Team in Peru. It’s the fourth team to disappear, so the new JLI board their new Queen Industries supplied jet transport to investigate. It’s clear that the group isn’t yet a team with Rocket Red and the August General bickering and Godvia’s problems with authority. Booster has words with Briggs about the membership, but he just gets told to make it work. The jet leaves before Booster can take his seat and he finds that Batman contrary to the UN’s wishes has decided to tag along as their pilot. While they are away two protesters use stolen Blackhawk ammo to burn the Hall and keep it out of UN hands. The JLI find that the Peru site has been scoured clean of the UN team. They are suddenly attacked by a hoard of animated rock creatures/statues who scuttle away after a quick battle. The victory is short lived as an earthquake signals the arrival of a larger treat. They lift into the air, but are ambushed by a giant android who rips its way out of the ground.
