    • Catman saves the day!
      After the other Guild members go down in battle against the Injustice Guild, Catman manages to single-handedly defeat all four villains despite his lack of superpowers. This seems to be a nod to the fact that Batman has often been portrayed in a similar fashion in many of the recent JLA comics, and even in this series. Since Catman is somewhat of a knockoff/homage of Batman, it seems only appropriate that he do the same thing here. This little mini-fight may also be an allusion to Wild Hunt - JSA #10 (second series). In this issue Wildcat (the hero upon which Catman is based) takes on the Injustice Gang single-handedly (including the son and daughter of The Icicle and the Sportsmaster - the "real" versions of Dr. Blizzard and the Sportsman, respectively) and wins - he even rides a motorcycle past a dirgible in one scene, just like here.
