The Toyman's latest invention is a device that can project someone into the pages of a story book. In this fairytale world the Superfriends are forced to interact with the characters of the stories. Toyman lures Hawkman into the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, Cheetah lures Wonder Woman into Alice in Wonderland and Brainiac lures Superman into the story of Gulliver's Travels. The device can also bring a person back but if you don't get out before 12 hours expire you can be stuck inside the book forever. Written by tomtrekp
