Synopsis for Green Arrow: "The Comic Book Archer!"
As Green Arrow and Speedy partake of a tour of the All-Star Comic book office, an aspiring writer wishes to sell the idea of a character named the Golden Archer. When the editor of All-Star Comics finds the super-feats in the comic book story ridiculous and impossible, he tries to appeal to the Green Arrow.
The Arrow not wishing to disappoint the budding writer tells the editor Mr. Sloan that if he can pull off the same stunts in real life then he should give the writer a chance with the series. Coincidentally enough, Green Arrow breaks up a number of crimes an uses his trick arrows in much the same way as was depicted in the Golden Archer stories. Phoning in with each successful stunt, Green Arrow convinces the editor that the tricks can be done, and the writer is rewarded with a Golden Archer comic book series.

Synopsis for Aquaman: "The Kid from Atlantis!"
One day while on patrol, Aquaman comes across a small boy sleeping in a craft, upon waking the boy, he finds that the child is scared of sea life. Calling his undersea friends away, Aquaman finds that the boy has purple eyes, marking him as one of the people of Atlantis. Aquaman soon learns that the boy was rejected by the society of Atlantis because he was deathly afraid of marine life. Aquaman then takes it upon himself to teach the boy that he has nothing to fear from aquatic life. The boy --dubbed Aqualad -- finally overcomes his fear when he helps Aquaman land a plane with the aid of luminous fish. Cured of his phobia, Aqualad is brought back to Atlantis to rejoin his people. The next day, Aquaman finds that he misses the boy, and is soon shocked when Aqualad reappears, explaining that he much prefers living with Aquaman as his sidekick to returning to Atlantis.
