Crisis on Infinite Earths #7 - Oct. 1985

"Beyond the Silent Night" by Marv Wolfman, George Perez, Jerry Ordway, and Dick Giordano.

Everyone knows what happened in this issue--the cover itself has now become a cliche.

The Phantom Stranger's relatively tiny role in the universe-shattering crisis that was the Crisis continues in this issue, where he appears in all of two panels, hanging out with his spooky buddies The Spectre and Deadman:

Meanwhile, over in Justice League of America #243, released that same month, frequent letterhack Kent A. Phenis asks whether the Stranger is part of the new JLA or not:
"Stay Tuned" meant...well, never, since this particular angle was never mentioned again in the book.

I'm guessing, when it came time, Aquaman sent a very curtly-worded letter to the Stranger, officially terminating his membership.
