Synopsis for Green Lantern: "The Case of the Loan Shark"

Carl Kessor, owner of a candy store, needs to borrow money to keep his business running. He goes to the Richard Turpin Loan Company and meets with Turpin, getting a loan at 10% interest. Two months later, Kessor prepares to make his final payment but discovers that Turpin has falsified some documents, causing Kessor to owe more money. He refuses to pay, but Turpin sends some thugs to his candy store to rough him up. Kessor takes Turpin to court, but Turpin uses his wealth to hire lawyers who get the case dismissed. Alan Scott and Irene Miller visit Kessor's candy store and hear his sad story. He also tells the couple that thugs are coming tonight for the first payment.

That night, Scott transforms into Green Lantern and heads to the candy store. He easily takes out the criminals, who report back to Turpin. In the middle of their report, Green Lantern barges into the room, demanding to be let in on the racket. He says that beating up people for money is inefficient and that he can do it better. Turpin decides to accept the offer.

At the store, Green Lantern uses his ring to scare the man into giving up his protection money. He confronts the man alone and tells him he is really collecting evidence against Turpin's racket. GL tells the man to avoid giving his money to Turpin. When they return to Turpin's office, the loan shark informs them that adding a new man to the racket will decrease everyone's cut of the money.

Their next destination is the circus, but, before they get there, the thugs throw Green Lantern out of the car and shoot him in order to increase their share of the take. Green Lantern plays dead and follows them to the circus. The crooks let out a lion that attacks the crowd, but GL uses his magic to put back in its cage. He grabs the thugs and takes them to the police station to confess. Green Lantern returns to Turpin's office and asks him how the racket works. After Turpin makes his confession, the police, waiting outside his door, burst in and arrest him. The next day, Irene and Alan walk into the candy store and celebrate the success of Green Lantern with Kesser.
