Congorilla: Funny though, your father said much the same thing to me once.
Jesse Quick: Wait, you knew my dad?
Congorilla: For a short time.
Jesse Quick: An adventure back in the day?
Congorilla: Back in the day, absolutely. Adventure? Not quite. We made a travel documentary about Africa. 1953, as I recall.
Donna Troy: Wow, he was tough. I’ve taken on Robot Baba Yagas that weren’t as hard to beat. Actually that’s a live. I’ve never met a Baba Yaga, robot or not, let alone fought one. I just thought it’d be cool to say.
Synopsis "The Dark Things Part One"
Previously in JLA #44 and JLA #45: The Starheart – the vessel created by the Guardians of the Universe to hold the wild and chaotic magic left over from the early universe – is approaching the Earth. A part of its power originally flowed through Alan Scott’s Green Lantern battery and ring and through the birth mark of his daughter Jade. Her resurrection during the Brightest Day awoken the Starheart and it has brought her to Earth. The Justice League and Society have teamed up to help her, but Alan Scott and her brother Obsidian (Todd Rice) have already been possessed by the Starheart’s magical/chaotic energies.
