After an initial arc that involved a battle against a younger version of the Legion of Super Heroes villain Mordru, and a stand alone Sand story, James Robinson left the title in the capable hands of Goyer's new writing partner, Geoff Johns. Soon to be a DC phenomenon, John's knowledge of superhero continuity and characterization propelled the comic for nearly the rest of its tenure and later guided the superhero team into a successful relaunch. Over the course of the title's run, the JSA battled many villains, including the likes of the Ultra-Humanite, Eclipso, Extant and the Gentleman Ghost. The series saw new members Hawkman, Captain Marvel, Jakeem Thunder, the second Mister Terrific and Hourman, a new Doctor Fate, and even the supposedly reformed villain Black Adam. The title debuted a new and deadly Crimson Avenger and delved into the nine lives of team member Wildcat.
