Summary:
Story is brought to a conclusion. Robin is reunited with his cousin. One thing I have noticed in this title is how open Batman is with his feelings toward Dick. Dick is his primary concern at all times and we often see him with his hand on the boy's shoudler. Nice to see.

Summary:
The eight JSAers sent into hyperspace are finally reunited and make their way back to Earth-2. At the same time, the All-Star Squadron helps Mekanique, a robot from the future, succeed in her attempt to change history. In order to facilitate her mission, Mekanique has used her power to prevent the effects of the Crisis on Infinite Earths from finalizing in 1942; her task complete, she allows the history altering effects of the Crisis to take hold, effectively eradicating from the All-Stars' memories the existence of Superman, Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman and Aquaman.
