After the Justice League defeated the Brothers Djinn and Black Adam, Wonder Woman realized Calythos' second volcano was the perfect location for their new headquarters. She christened it, the Watchtower. Green Lantern, Superman, and Shazam helped to complete the tower. Cyborg, Green Arrow, Batman, Constantine, Wonder Woman, Swamp Thing, and Plastic Man were also present to witness the Watchtower's completion. Superman's Fortress of Solitude was selected as the secondary headquarters of the Justice League in case anything happened to the Watchtower. At some point after the Watchtower's completion, Batman and Wonder Woman offered the Atom full membership to the League but he was more focused on his research. Suddenly, a Super Parademon boomed into the lab and attacked them. Atom used his size changing powers to shrink the Parademon, punch it out and trap it in a petri dish. Atom decided to accept the Justice League's offer. He jokingly asked what the secret handshake was but Batman was already gone.

Mister Mind was tried before the Galactic Court on charges of intergalactic terrorism and found guilty. He was sentenced and ordered to serve his time at the Watchtower. Superman escorted him back to Earth but he was attacked by Lobo and Jonas who wanted the bounty placed on Mind by Boss Kack. Space Cabbie and Hawkman came to Superman's aid. Mind was stepped on by Lobo and split in half. Lobo tossed Superman the lower half in Mind. Mind fully regenerated but realized he was in a prison inside of the Watchtower. Space Cabbie took a photo with Mind then implied he needed to collect on his fare and damages for his totaled cab. Luckily, Hawkman picked a piece of anthracite from his wings. Superman crushed it into a sizeable diamond and gave it to Cabbie. He happily accepted then took a photo with Superman and Hawkman.

During the attack on the Hudson Nuclear Power Plant, Batman was at the Watchtower. He hailed Superman and Wonder Woman to see if any of them were close by to prevent the impending meltdown. They were not. Batman checked and neither were the Flash, Green Lantern or Martian Manhunter. He discovered someone was on their way but it was a superhero unaffiliated with the League, Firestorm. Batman received a distress call from Swamp Thing. He departed the Watchtower in the Batjet. After Joker was kidnapped by Mongul, Batman contacted the Justice League for assistance. Superman and Wonder Woman disembarked from the Watchtower, the latter in a spacecraft, to space.

Toyman broke into the Watchtower around 5 pm during one of Cyborg's shifts. While he was distracted with playing "Blvd Brawler" online against Blue Beetle on an upper level, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman fought off Toyman's army of toys on the main deck. Superman was punched into Cyborg's room and notified him of the crisis. Cyborg attempted to interface with one of the broken toys but Superman already believed the culprit was Toyman. Toyman appeared in a mech suit and launched his Star Sparkle Super Putty at Superman. It was Kryptonite and wrapped around him. Toyman tossed several gas cannisters and the others lost consciousness. Toyman affixed devices on them that gave him full control of their movement and he assimilated the Watchtower training room into an arcade parlor for "Blvd Brawlers 2 JLA." Toyman announced Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg were going to fight to the finish for his entertainment.

Cyborg initiated the second part of his plan and goaded Toyman into accepting his challenge for a little friendly competition. Toyman chose Superman for himself and Batman for Cyborg. Cyborg managed to get Batman's Super Meter charged and used a Kryptonite Ring Punch to knock out Superman and win the round. Toyman chose Wonder Woman and won then declared the competition was over. Cyborg cried foul but Toyman forced him to walk towards Wonder Woman who was about to start punching him but Toyman's controls were finally overridden. They were free and chased after Toyman. Wonder Woman and Superman crippled his suit as he fled. Another interfaced toy picked up Toyman by the shorts before he could get away. While Batman was more interested in spending the day studying an alien artifact, a meteor on a projected course to downtown Bludhaven was monitored by Cyborg, Superman, and Wonder Woman. The meteor suddenly shifted course to the Watchtower. It turned out to be Lobo, who seeked sanctuary from the Red Lantern Corps.

A small team of Red Lanterns led by Atrocitus soon arrived in search of Lobo, who they claimed stole several newly forged Red Lantern Rings. Superman asked for a moment for the League to locate the rings. Atrocitus agreed but secretly one of his Lanterns, Dex-Starr, was infiltrating the Watchtower. It sneaked up the face of the cliff the Watchtower sat atop and entered a tunnel after prying a grate off. It easily went past the laser security grid and opened the front door for the rest of the Red Lanterns. As the Leaguers conferred about what to do with Lobo, he exacerbated the situation by making it look like League was working with Lobo to steal the rings. While the League and Lanterns fought each other, Lobo slipped away and activated the Spider Gauntlet, his true objective and blasted everyone outside. The League and Lanterns agreed to a temporary alliance to take Lobo down. Superman was taken back to the Watchtower after Luthor tricked him into infecting himself with nanobots. Red Tornado and the Atom assessed his condition.

Red Tornado remained at the tower while the others shrank down and entered Superman's body to destroy the nanobots. Luthor figured out the Atom was aiding in Superman's recovery so he breached the Watchtower. Red Tornado mounted a defense but was shorted out. Luthor found Superman and blasted his body with Kryptonite rays. The Atom exited Superman's mouth and stole the gun away. Batman and Wonder Woman destroyed the nanobot queen then forced Superman to sneeze them out just in time. They returned to normal size just as they were propelled into Luthor. Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, and Batman attempted to track down H.I.V.E.'s Cobalt Fusion Bomb from the Watchtower. Just as Batman suggested looking for a large radioactive signature, Athena arrived with news Wonder Woman was going to become the goddess of truth. Athena agreed to one last mission and Bubo flew over to the tower's computers and instantly tracked down H.I.V.E.'s secret base.

After Jonah Hex's frozen body was discovered, he was brought back to the Watchtower and shipped to a secure facility, along with confiscated objects, on the Space Train. After Batman and Superman captured Deadshot in Gotham City, they took him to the Watchtower for interrogation. Wonder Woman and Firestorm observed while Superman played the bad cop and Batman, the good cop, for once. Deadshot was weirded out and caved in. Batman later enlisted Space Cabbie's services for transportation from New Genesis back to Earth. Batman excused himself from the garage bay to get his wallet upstairs and pay the $38,000 fare rather than take a selfie with him. Cabbie went looking for Batman but found Booster Gold in the monitor room then discovered he heavily promoted his endorsed drink Golden Fizz in a lot of selfies he took. Cabbie continued on and entered the holographic training simulator room. Unaware of it, he mistook a battle between Wonder Woman and Parademons as the real thing. She was impressed he came to her aid but he simply wanted a selfie.

After Booster Gold neglected monitor duty, Batman traced his signal and Green Arrow to search for him since he happened to be in the same area. A monthly League meeting at the Watchtower was interrupted when an android named Amazo burst in and declared it was going to destroy them. Amazo was disappointed to see only Green Lantern, Flash, Martian Manhunter, and Batman were present. Flash ran up the side of a wall and leaped towards Amazo then punched him repeatedly but the android copied his powers. Amazo punched Flash repeatedly then threw him into Green Lantern. Amazo scanned Martian Manhunter and Green Lantern next, then used their powers against Batman. Superman arrived and punched Amazo through several floors but had his powers scanned, as well. With the Leaguers present captured, Amazo went to the computers and sent out an alert for a priority one emergency meeting to all members. He planned to duplicate every power then take over the world. Amazo placed everyone into a prison cell and turned on its power damping grids.

Wonder Woman sneaked into the prison level but with Batman's intellect, Amazo suspected he was hiding something. Wonder Woman lassoed Amazo and threw him into an electrical panel but he phased through the Lasso of Truth then used super speed to tie her up in it. She was placed in another cell. Amazo was about to set his trap but Bizarro arrived with Space Cabbie, who he thought was the smartest person in the galaxy. Naturally, Amazo was confused. He tried to hurl Cabbie but Bizarro saved him. Amazo scanned Bizarro but Bizarro attacked. Batman instructed Cabbie to go downstairs to the lab and flip the switch on the energy circuit to stop the transmission recalling the other Justice Leaguers. Amazo found Cabbie in the lab but was shot clear across by an innocent looking little gun. He froze Cabbie's hands but Bizarro arrived. Amazo's circuits began to scramble trying to compute Bizarro's backwards logic and overloaded.
