Justice League of America Classic No. 217

This is my first comic book- a reprinting of a Satellite Era JLA story from 1983. Not all of the characters on the cover appeared in the comic- the Atom, Black Canary and Green Arrow were absent from the adventure, "All the Elements of Disaster." I was left wondering who they were and came to the conclusion that they must be villains. I further wondered if the Atom (whose name was not known to me at the time) was very small or very far away from the others- ostracized, perhaps, due to his imagined villain status. Green Arrow's hat was seen as a baseball cap as well.
