JLA (1996) #93
"Extinction – Conclusion" is written by Dennis O'Neil and drawn by Tan Eng Huat. "Peppy," the shape-changer visitor from another dimension, has been escorted around the planet by the members of the JLA in an attempt to teach him about mankind. The alien thought to come to Earth to check on the progress of near-extinct silver-masked monkeys who, he was convinced, would be the dominant species on the planet. Instead, "Peppy" found mankind in charge despite its confusing propensity for self-destruction and hatred. Now, "Peppy" has disappeared from under the JLA's noses, after ominously promising to help humanity succeed in its suicidal quest.
After quelling a brief Middle Eastern war, Wonder Woman, Flash and Green Lantern scour the area for Peppy before returning the JLA Watchtower to admit defeat. The Batman, however, has tracked the alien visitor to a remote mountain in upstate
New York–a spot directly in-line with his wondrous orbiting spaceship. Superman and Green Lantern investigate the ship and are just in time to see it open a space warp and unleash a hail of city-sized meteors at Earth. Somehow the League must convince Peppy that, despite its irrational behavior, humanity deserves a chance to redeem its future.
