‘Dark Horses’ (JLA #25)
Justice League council-leader
Kevin Grady was killed in an attack by the Hand of Vengeance, a metahuman gang
of vigilantes lead by the notorious criminal Star Sapphire, and the Justice League's
headquarters was virtually destroyed. The Hand was aided by Bizarro, causing
the League to believe that Star and Lex were now working together.
At Kevin Grady's funeral
"The world is full of good people, like Kevin", he said, "who were once misguided". "The Justice League will be a beacon for them, a symbol of hope. We will rebuild our fortress so that it is stronger than ever before."
