Synopsis for "The Lords of Luck (Part II) - Ventura"
Green Lantern and Supergirl fly to the gambling world of Ventura in search of the Book of Destiny. Due to Ventura's strict laws, Hal is forced to shed his Green Lantern vestments and take on a disguise as one of the locals.
Supergirl likewise adopts a less heroic costume and enters into one of Ventura's more popular combat trials. Knowing that the odds are stacked against her, Supergirl is counting on the fact that whoever has the Book of Destiny is likely the only gambler on Ventura who would actually bet on her to win. Supergirl easily disposes of the reigning champions, the Brothers Gragg, and is quickly able to discern the identity of the man with the book.
Hal's fortune is not as complimentary as Supergirl's, and he is soon forced to reveal himself as a Green Lantern. Reuniting with Supergirl, they manage to catch up with the man in possession of the book. As luck would have it however, another patron attacks the thief and absconds with the Book of Destiny. This individual is from the planet Rann, and uses Zeta-Beam technology to instantly teleport off the planet. Green Lantern is caught in the wake of the Zeta-Beam and disappears, leaving Supergirl stranded on Ventura.
