powerful members of the Justice League are abducted one-by-one.

Batman, Robin and Green Arrow discover the mystery surrounding their

disappearance – The Joining has returned with some earthly villainous

androids. It's up to Batman, Robin and Green Arrow to help their JL

friends regain their powers and prevent an alien invasion. The

one-hour special includes appearances by Green Lantern, Hawkman,

Flash, Superman, Green Arrow, Toyman, Mirror Master, Dr. Hugo Strange

and The Joining. The film is written by Stan Berkowitz and Alexx Van
