Synopsis for "The World's Three Most Dangerous Arrows"

After Oliver and Roy Harper get x-rays as part of a community drive (during which Oliver accidentally breaks the crystal of his brand new watch), he learns from the x-ray lab that the photos indicate a radium burn on a small but vital part of his body, and that he has only a month to live. Thus, feeling he has nothing to lose, Green Arrow decides to use three imperfect and potentially deadly arrows to fight crime: the Electronic Arrow, which can set up a small electrical storm, also endangering the user; the Satellite Arrow, whose jet-stream could be fatal to an archer standing behind it; and the Super-Boomerang Arrow, which flies back to the one who uses it so quickly that he cannot avoid being hit. Green Arrow does use the three arrows successfully to fight crime. Later on, however, he learns that the radium “burn” on the x-ray was only caused by part of the radium dial on his watch rubbing off on the photo--and nearly faints when he hears it.
