Synopsis for "The Kid from Krypton"

Zar-Al, a Kryptonian teenager, is sent by his father in a time-ship to Earth in the future, where Jor-El will send Kal-El, in order to find a supply of Zeelium, the only element that can dampen Krypton’s uranium core.

On Earth, he arrives in Superboy’s time, and becomes known as the Krypton Kid. He becomes a friend to Superboy, but neither of them can discover any Zeelium. To keep Superboy from sacrificing himself by going into the past, Zar-Al decoys him to another planet, and returns to Krypton in the past with the time-ship, dying alongside of his father.

Synopsis for "The Amazing Feats of Aqua-Melvin"

A clown named Melvin is knocked unconscious on a friend’s ship and requires a transfusion, which Aquaman provides. The infusion of blood gives Melvin Aquaman’s powers for 24 hours. Aquaman takes him on patrol and intends to have him help, but Melvin’s practical jokes (such as having a squid paint a large portrait of a governor on an iceberg with his ink) usually foul things up. However, a seagoing crook called Captain Cuttle and his crew loot a treasure Aquaman had earmarked for charity, threatening to blow up sea life with depth charges if he interfered. But their boat runs aground in shallow waters when they mistake the light of a lantern fish for the lamp of a nearby lighthouse. Aquaman captures them, and explains that the “pranks” Melvin played were a cover for the operation; he placed a lantern fish on top of the iceberg Melvin painted.

Synopsis for "The Return of Robin Hood"

Green Arrow and Speedy respond to a challenge from writer Darby Van Heller to duplicate fabled feats of archers such as William Tell and Robin Hood in order to prove such feats could really be accomplished. However, after Green Arrow performs a shot that sets off a cache of gunpowder, Speedy is astonished to see what appears to be his partner emerging from the smoke, talking as if he were Robin Hood, and running away. In days to come, the “Green Arrow / Robin Hood” aids crooks with his archery, while supposedly convinced he is the famed medieval archer. Finally, Speedy stops his “partner” and unmasks him as Van Heller, whom the police confirm is Archie the Archer, a crook. Green Arrow had been taken prisoner by Archie’s gang while Archie pretended to be an addled, criminal “Green Arrow”. Speedy says the clue that tipped him off was the green feather Archie wore in his hat; the real Green Arrow “always wears a red one!” The real Green Arrow soon appears, having freed himself.
