Plot Synopsis: JLA (1996) #68
"The Obsidian Age Prelude" -- "Stillborn Atlantis" is written by Joe Kelly with artwork by Doug Mahnke. It begins here: the epic JLA tale that promises to culminate in the revival of Aquaman as a force in the DC Universe. The Green Lantern's dreams of the League's imminent demise haunt his waking life but in the real world, the League takes on a very familiar and corporeal menace; the crime duo of Oceanmaster and Black Manta. In a mad bid to take over the newly arisen Atlantis, the super-criminals match their might against the JLA and their new ally, Tempest, the man formerly known as Aqualad.

With the super-villains vanquished, the JLA turns its attentions to investigating the ruins to try to uncover why they rose and how the city's inhabitants vanished. Could the mystery be solved by learning the origin of the Incan warrior and Native America shaman that attacked the JLA. The bewitching Zatanna (drawn here to look like Gillian Anderson in fishnets and tap pants) thinks she has the answer. And a big clue seems to have been left for the League by Aquaman himself from the depths of the past. The League's mission seems clear. The team must go into the past to rescue the Atlanteans from whatever fate led to the destruction of their civilization. And Zatanna and her fellow magicians Dr. Fate and Faust can provide the transportation.
