"They Say It'll Kill Me... But They Won't Say When!": This story is reprinted from Green Lantern (Volume 2) #86.


Quote1 I'm sharing a very small piece of the pain I've just gone through these past few days. The kind of pain thousands of kids are going through every day because an uncaring and unthinking society turns its back on them. Drugs are a symptom... and you... like the rest of society... attack the symptom... not the disease! But this symptom is worse than most -- it maims... it pains... it dims you. It drives you to the edge of insanity and over... and one day ends your trip on a slab in the morgue... with a tag around your toe. Quote2
-- Speedy

Synopsis for "What Can One Man Do?"

This story is reprinted from Green Lantern (Volume 2) #87.

Mayor Jack Major wishes to step down as head of Star City’s government. Mayoral aide Kevin McManus phones up Oliver Queen and asks him to run for the office. Queen phones some of his Justice League friends to talk over the offer, and gets mixed advice. But, shortly after, Green Arrow is embroiled in a race riot in which a young boy is shot, and, despite GA’s and a team of doctors’ best efforts, he dies. Moved to tears by the incident, Green Arrow goes to see Dinah Lance, and tells her he has decided to run for mayor.

Notes

Trivia

  • In "Beware My Power", John Stewart stops an out-of-control fuel truck from ploughing into a crowd at the airport. The truck is shown to bear the name SOES, which is an obvious anagram of ESSO — the international tradename of ExxonMobil, the American multinational oil and gas corporation.
  • The sequence in "What Can One Man Do?" involving the death in hospital of the young black boy shot during the riot, and the deeply-saddened Green Arrow walking away through the darkened streets, is accompanied by part of A Farewell to Arms, the 1929 semi-autobiographical novel by Ernest Hemingway.[1]
