QUOTE: "'Have you guessed the riddle yet?' the Hatter said, turning to Alice again. 'No, I give up,' Alice replied. 'What's the answer?' 'I haven't the slightest idea,' said the Hatter. 'Nor I,' said the March Hare. Alice sighed wearily.  'I think you might do something better with the time,' she said, 'than wasting it in asking riddles that have no answers.'" óLewis Carroll

SUMMARY: The Flash, Captain Cold, and the Mirror Master face off against Plunder in a desperate bid to escape the twisted mirror world alive, nearly destroying the Hal Jordan Museum in the process. Unfortunately, the battle ends in defeat, with Cold and the Mirror Master subdued and taken away as captives of the villainous alternate version of the Thinker, a man who plots to escape his own collapsing reality and to invade the real world. Powerless without his connection to the speed force, Wally West ransacks the museum exhibits and seizes the weapons of some of Green Lantern's most memorable foes in order to gain an edge. Armed with these fantastic devices, the Flash comes to the rescue of Captain Cold and the Mirror Master and the three set their sights on home. Little do they suspect that there may not be a home to return to!
