Dr. Polaris with the blue cape--never really took to that redesign, but it's recognizable. There's Major Force, and Damage appears to be fighting a version of Atomic Skull? That was all I had on the villains' end. From 2010, Justice Society of America #33, "Split Up (Part 5 of the Bad Seed)" Written by Bill Willingham and Matthew Sturges, art by Jesus Merino.
This was the concluding chapter of a five-parter, with villains trying to collect on bounties on various JSA members, and a traitor on the Society that may have murdered Mr. Terrific. The traitor turned out to be All-American Kid, aka Kid Karnevil. I had no idea who he was. But the team's also facing another crisis, of direction: should the team be run like a club or a school; or a more military unit? With 18+members, the answer was apparently to split the team into two...separate comics, with the launch of JSA All-Stars.
