Synopsis for Green Lantern: "Meet Doiby Dickles"

In the offices of Apex Broadcasting, Irene Miller is introduced to Dr. Henry. The doctor has invented a machine that will give radio a much clearer reception without static. The inventor, however, has had several attempts on his life, and they recruit Irene into carrying the plans the research laboratory. Listening at the door, a man rushes outside and sets a trap for Irene. She leaves Apex and grabs a taxi; a car suddenly appears, following their every move. The cab driver can't outrace the criminals and is forced into a fistfight with them. He takes them out one by one and introduces himself to Irene as Doiby Dickles. They reach the laboratory without further incident. After dropping off the plans, they return to Apex, and Doiby is recognized as a hero.

That night, Green Lantern visits Doiby and thanks him for his service. The next day, Alan Scott overhears a man named Barton arguing with Mr. Wallace about purchasing Apex, but Wallace refuses to sell. Later that night, Alan again transforms into the Green Lantern to find out more information. For several nights, Green Lantern watches Barton for evidence of a crime. Meanwhile, the newly invented radio tower is finally built, and Irene is sent to retrieve the confidential report, driven, of course, by her new hero, Doiby Dickles. The thugs, overhearing the conversation, report the news to their boss, revealed to be Barton. Green Lantern, overhearing Barton's phone call, races to the laboratory.

As the thugs rush the radio tower, Green Lantern uses his magic to chase them away. Doiby and Irene arrive and, while Irene is captured, Doiby is knocked out in the struggle. Green Lantern is hit by a speeding car, and Doiby, awakening from unconsciousness, tails the gangsters to their hideout. Realizing that the Green Lantern has been put out of action, Doiby speeds to a costume shop to purchase a GL costume.

Later, he bursts into the hideout, but no one is fooled by a short fat man in a derby dressed as Green Lantern. Before Doiby can be killed, the real Green Lantern walks in the room and, along with Doiby, easily dispatches the thugs. The next day, Doiby finds a note in his home from Green Lantern asking Doiby to be his partner in fighting evil.
