The villainous Secret Society of Super-Villains returns, their
memories restored, seeking vengeance. They're aided by one
of the JLA's oldest and deadliest opponents, Despero. Now
is the time the League will be forced to question the fine
line between hero and vigilante. When the battles end, a member
will quit the League, another will lie shattered, and the
JLA will be fractured, perhaps beyond repair...
of Conscience sees
the JLA forced to deal with a problem of their own creating.
The JLA's darkest secret, that they used magic to alter the
minds of the Secret Society of Super-Villains, has finally
been revealed. Not only do the members of the Secret Society
know what the JLA did to them, but they also know all of the
JLA's secret identities, as well as the names of their loved
ones. Batman, meanwhile, has also recovered his memories and
is aware that the JLA also wiped his memory of certain events.

Johns and Allan Heinberg's writing is almost faultless. This
collection makes the uphill slog that was the previous Countdown
to Infinite Crisis releases seem worthwhile. This is a
worthy payoff that will have you applauding the writing, the
illustrations and the whole concept - even if you previously
thought that DC were milking the storyline a little too much.
