Another team works to destroy the systems controlling the probes on Earth, and succeeds.
With the loss of Daxam, the sphere begins to implode. As the JSA flee in their craft, Imperiex's ship colapses behind them. As the ship heads earthbound, Luthor calls up and congratulates them on their success, and asks the number of casualties they suffered. Sand looks back at the President and tells him none, they're the JSA.
Story - 5: This is by far the best OWAW special so far. Not only did it tie-in majorly to the story in the Super-books, but it was a great read. It's really nice seeing some of the other heroes of the DCU that we don't see as much, such as Damage and Ray. Full of action and playing a major role in the OWAW storyline, this issue gets my highest recommendation. If you are only going to spend a few extra dollars on the tie-in issues of the story, then this one should be at the top of your list.
Art - 4: It's good art, nice and crisp just like a classic team like the JSA should be. Nothing extremely great, hense the lack of a five, but I liked it a lot.
Cover Art - 4: My favorite of the OWAW covers. The style of these has annoyed me the last few issues, on the JLA issue in particular, but this one was done very well with the older members in the background and the next generation together. Not exactly exciting but a cover with a very nice style of its own.
