The Justice League, Superboy, Miss Martian's valiant effort against Kylstar convinced him to treat his sentient weapons better.  All captives, including Maxima, were released, and Orb-One explained Kylstar's motives.  He was a freedom fighter who was on a mission to stop slavers who destroyed his homeworld.  As a sign of his good intentions, he offered to return captives unwilling to help with his fight back to their homeworlds. Those willing to stay were promised good treatment and glorious battle.[2]

Maxima was apparently teleported back to her home planet.
