Upon arriving, Aquaman quickly notices that the town has been effected by a wave of lawlessness. Asking for Aquaman's assistance, the mayor makes him the sheriff of the town.

Synopsis for "The Green Arrow Robin Hood!"
While visiting the Robin Hood Museum in England, Oliver Queen gets separated from Roy Harper when he enters a cave where atomic devices were once tested. When one of the devices goes off, Oliver finds himself transported back to the time of Robin Hood and his Merrie Men. Finding an injured Robin Hood in the cave, Oliver agrees to pose as the legendary hero and save Maid Marian from King John.
Disguising himself as Robin Hood, Oliver travels to King John's castle, fights his way through his guards and saves Maid Marrian and returns her to Sherwood Forest. Returning to the cave Oliver bids farewell to Robin Hood and is transported back to the present. Returning to the tour, Roy points out to Oliver that Robin Hood also used trick arrows, which leaves Oliver to wonder if the whole experience really did happen or if it was a dream.
