Chong Mai is a rogue country located near Mongolia and northern China. Under a Communist regime, most people live in a egalitarian yet impoverished community and the country is under the United States Department of State's No Travel List. If an American citizen were to travel there, it would be considered a class three felony upon return to the States. Such a charge could result in a fine of $10,000 to $20,000 and 2-20 years in prison. Eager to prove themselves on the international scene with military prowess as well as having a super-powered guardian, the government sanctioned a project to synthetically construct a superhero. Using technology and nuclear fusion, Brimstone was created. It disobeyed its commands and rampaged through the country.

J'onn Jonzz dispatched Green Lantern, Captain Atom, and Supergirl to investigate the radioactive signatures given off in Chong Mai. Despite General Kwan's refusal to accept aid from the Justice League Unlimited, the trio continuted to investigate and encountered Brimstone. Rather than face it directly, the heroes saved a caravan of innocent civilians. Green Lantern created a simple bridge construct while the others ushered the people to go across with their livestock. Unable to get close enough to administer carbon rods to neutralize Brimstone, scientists allowed the JLU unit to try their luck. With Green Lantern on the sideline injured, Captain Atom dispersed, and Supergirl overpowered; Green Arrow used his wit and skill to stop Brimstone. Supergirl mustered enough strength to topple the then defenseless abomination.
