Fictional team history

In another bid for world domination, the alien conqueror Queen Bee forms a group intended as the antithesis of the Justice League of America. In other words, Brainiac to Superman, Clayface to Batman, Sinestro to Green Lantern, Gorilla Grodd to Flash, Ocean Master to Aquaman, Merlyn to Green Arrow, a Harpy to Black Canary, and Chronos to Atom. Her plan is to ambush members of the superhero team before they can realize the group as a whole is under attack and in this she's mostly successful, even capturing members Elongated Man and Red Tornado. However, Superman becomes aware of his allies' disappearances and uses Kryptonian technology to make the world switch their perceptions of Superman and Clark Kent (as the villains are off-planet on a space vessel, they're unaffected). This tactic confuses Brainiac and Queen Bee is forced to send her Bee-Men to try to capture Superman. Inevitably, Superman follows the minions back to their headquarters and manages to enable his comrades to escape as he faces the villains by himself. With the Justice League free, they soundly defeat Queen Bee's group. Superman uses his technology to erase memories of his dual identity from the minds of the villains save Brainiac and return Earth to its original perception.[1]
