"Abate and Switch" is the fourth episode of the first season of Justice League Action. It is the fourth part of the one-hour season premiere.

Synopsis Edit

The Justice League must stop Black Adam and the last three djinn from restoring the world to its prehistoric era.

Plot Edit

The three Brothers Djinn travel to the volcanic island created by Calythos intending to reopen the fissure there to return the Earth to its primordial state. The Justice League pursue them but lose their super powers by a djinn spell. Batman summons help and John Constantine appears from a travel portal and the superheroes escape through it to his house.

They recover their powers and, joined by more League members, concoct a plan to disguise themselves as one another to fool the Djinn. As Batman goes for backup, they return to the island and capture the Djinn. However the latter have reopened the fissure, and now also Black Adam reappears from it and attacks and subdues the Justice League.

Batman returns with Shazam, but the latter is unable to get the better of Black Adam who releases the Djinn. These transform into monstrous beasts that attack the League but one after another they are made to fall through Constantines' portals. Finally the League combine together and make Black Adam disappear into a portal too.

The Justice League, joined by Green Lantern, now build the globe-like Watchtower on top of the new volcano to replace the ruined Hall of Justice.
