Justice League of America #210 - Jan. 1983

The Justice League of America in "...When A World Dies Screaming!"

This is an "Untold Story from the JLA Casebook", by Gerry Conway, Rich Buckler, and Romeo Tanghal, featuring the then-entire JLA plus off-and-on member The Phantom Stranger:

This cover and splash page are the Stranger's only appearances in this issue, but rest assured he will take part in the story in parts two and three!

This story was originally done as a treasury-sized JLA comic around 1977, but when DC scaled back the original material-treasuries it was shelved. A few years later, editor Len Wein dusted it off an put it in three consecutive issues of the regular JLA title.

So while this is the last appearance the Stranger made with the JLA in terms of publishing history (since it takes place a few years earlier), JLA #200 remains the last chronological meeting of the Stranger and the World's Greatest Super-Heroes.
