A wave of robberies, carried out by strange, flying Bee-Men, occur in three cities. Word of the crime wave reaches the Secret Sanctuary, where the Justice League of America is celebrating Snapper Carr's birthday. The team splits into three groups, to handle the robberies. J'onn J'onzz, the Manhunter From Mars, heads to the Tower Of Jewels. Upon crossing the threshold, of a large hole in the wall, the Martian Manhunter is incapacitated by a ring of flame, ignited by a large ruby. Elongating his arm, J'onn J'onzz, the Manhunter From Mars, grabs a handful of opals, and hurls them into the flames. The opals release their water content, which the Martian Manhunter guides, with his martian breath, to extinguish the flames.
J'onn J'onzz, the Manhunter From Mars is seconds away from apprehending the Bee-Men, when they suddenly disappear. Wonder Woman and the Flash head to the Hall of Science and Invention. Exposure to the radiation of strange, glowing blue bubbles causes the two heroes to do the reverse of their intended actions. Working in unison, the two heroes overcome the effects of the radiation. Wonder Woman and the Flash are seconds away from apprehending the Bee-Men, when they suddenly disappear. The Green Lantern and the Green Arrow head to the National Library. There they are bombarded by weaponized letters. Working in unison, the two heroes neutralize the threat.
The Green Lantern and the Green Arrow are seconds away from apprehending the Bee-Men, when they suddenly disappear. The Justice League of America's actions have been observed by the Queen Bee, who takes a great interest in the Justice League of America. The Queen Bee compels the Justice League of America to rendezvous with her. The Justice League of America brings the Queen Bee the stolen goods from each of the three crime scenes. The Queen Bee threatens to destroy the Earth, if the Justice League of America doesn't collect three items for her. Millennia ago, on the planet Korll, Per Kazz, a brilliant scientist, created an elixir of immortality. Per Kazz separated the elixir into three components, then hid them, on the planet Somalar.
For generations, the ruling families of Korll have sent out expeditions to Somalar, to recover the elixir. None have ever returned. The Queen Bee tasks the Justice League of America with recovering the elixir of immortality for her. The team splits into the same three teams to search the planet. J'onn J'onzz, the Manhunter From Mars, locates his third of the elixir, deep within a mountain. The mountain, though, turns out to be a volcano, which erupts as the Martian Manhunter draws near. The Flash and Wonder Woman locate their third of the elixir on an island-sized plant. The two heroes are quick to discover that the massive floral expanse has a multitude of defenses, to keep them from reaching the elixir.
The Green Lantern and the Green Arrow locate their third of the elixir, frozen deep within a glacier. Each time they draw near to the glacier, it teleports away. J'onn J'onzz, the Manhunter From Mars, uses his martian breath to freeze a river. The Martian Manhunter then throws the river into the volcano. A giant, volcanic creature emerges. Analyzing the creatures composition, J'onn J'onzz, the Manhunter From Mars, quickly fashions a large sphere of loadstone, which magnetically imprisons the creature on it's surface. The final obstacle removed, the Martian Manhunter collects his third of the elixir. Wonder Woman hurls the Flash into the core of the island-sized plant. By matching his vibratory rate to that of the vial of elixir, the Flash is able to mask his presence from the plant, and retrieve the elixir.
The Green Lantern overlays a massive grid around the glacier. As the Green Arrow fires arrows towards the glacier, the two heroes track it's motion, as the glacier teleports out of the line of fire. Figuring out it's pattern, the Green Lantern moves into position, so that the glacier materializes around him. The Green Lantern retrieves his third of the elixir. Their task complete, the Queen Bee sends the Justice League of America back to Earth. The Queen Bee's quest for immortality, however, has been thwarted. Before turning the vials over to the Queen Bee, J'onn J'onzz, the Manhunter From Mars welded the vials shut with his martian vision. The Green Lantern then coated the vials with an indestructible aura, so that they could never be broken. The Justice League of America resume their celebration of Snapper Carr's birthday.
