Summary: Doctor Fate and Hawkman are summoned to another dimension by a mysterious powerful being who calls himself 'Master Summoner.' The Master Summoner warns the two heroes of an impending danger that could result in the destruction of Earth-2 if they don't 'act wisely' before the 'critical hour' ends. The Master Summoner is very vague about what he means by all this and Doctor Fate and Hawkman don't ask for clarity. At least, we are not shown this on panel.

The Best of the Huntress: Wonder Woman #295 Review

Title: Wonder Woman #295
Story: Out of the Darkness
Characters: Huntress (Helena Wayne), Alfred Beagle, Harry Sims
Creators: Paul Levitz (writer), Joe Staton (artist)
Publication Date: August 1982
Available In: Print

Summary: Time is running out and Alfred Beagle's life is barely hanging on a thread. Worse yet, Helena Wayne has no idea how to save him because she doesn't know what Alfred's been poisoned with, and neither does the thug who fed him the poison. With anger and anxiety clouding Helena's thoughts, she does the one thing she never thought herself capable of: doing what's easy. Without time to investigate, Helena resorts to forcing the thug (identified as Fred) to tell her about the pill he gave to Alfred by threatening to kill him if he doesn't. With a very firm grasp on his throat, Helena begins to gradually block his breathing by putting pressure on his windpipe, which forces Fred to describe the pill to her in between chokes.
