This Twice-Told-Tale is really remarkable in the parallels they invoke, be that from the characters involved to the sinister schemes of the supervillains to the chronology of these crimes. Doctor Arthur Light of Earth-One and the heretofore nameless Light of Earth-Two were also the malevolent masterminds behind this tale told twice! They each drew members of the Justice League and Justice Society, the Atom and Starman, to face them mano-y-mano respectively. Using magnetic light and other inventions, they had their foes helplessly trapped at miniature size, the Doctor using solder to lock the size changing controls on the Atom's belt, and the Light by using his diminishing ray on Starman. How would they extract themselves from these seeming death traps?
As it turned out, the Lights' adversaries were not the only brilliant men in the room, as their foes figured out ways out of these traps. After leaving the Atom in an experimental light bulb devised to turn matter into energy, what the Doctor failed to realize was that the same heat from the filament designed to due his dirty deed was what melted the solder. For Starman, it was by his cornering the Light's henchman after the greedy genius left the room, using his gravity rod to turn the tables on the thug. So consumed these Lights were to revenge, Doctor Light towards the Justice League who defeated him and the Light towards his former professor who rejected him, that they failed to thing through their strategems. And so it would be for these brilliant baddies time and time again with their enemies.
