The headline shouted: BREAKING NEWS! SUPERVILLE’S FIVE RESIDENT SUPERHEROES LOSE THEIR SUPERPOWERS. PETS SNATCHED TOO! And just below: THE DASTARDLY VILLAIN, JASPER JAKOWSKI HAS CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY AND ISSUED THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT.

You have four hours to do this…or lose your powers FOREVER!!
Dan the detective leapt to his feet. “This is definitely a case for me,” he exclaimed, “but it will take more brainpower than mine alone. I’ll need to recruit some supersmart sleuths…pronto!”. Your help is desperately needed as there is no telling what greater mischief JJ will unleash once the deadline has passed. Come join us and let’s get to work!
On arrival in Superville the crime-busting team was met by the mayor, along with Astroboy, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman. Supergirl told them that she and her friends had been present shopping for Four-footed Friends Appreciation Day. They were itching to shower these gifts on their furry friends. On arrival home however, they were shocked to be greeted not by wagging tails and woofs, but by SILENCE! As they entered their home, it was immediately apparent that their superpowers had vanished.
