Synopsis for Green Lantern: "Masquerading Mare!"

Alan Scott learns that Irene Miller has inherited an estate. After taxes and fees, she has the house, the property, and a race horse named Jersey Queen. Alan heads out to the estate to check it out. He overhears Scar Jorgis, a known criminal, aggressively haggling with Irene for Jersey. Alan intervenes and punches Jorgis; before his crony can shoot Alan, Jorgis and the thug leave, vowing revenge. Apparently, Jorgis was trying to buy the horse, because he was afraid it would beat his horse in the upcoming race. That night, suspecting Jorgis is up to no good, Alan transforms into the Green Lantern and heads over to Irene's new home.

Green Lantern catches two crooks attempting to lame the horse and easily takes them out, sending them running back to Jorgis. Irene arrives, and Green Lantern beats a hasty exit. After the thugs report back, Jorgis decides to take a different tack and leans on a man, Gerald Davis, who owes him money. Davis is a cousin of Irene, and, the next day, he persuades Irene into entering Jersey Queen into several races before her big debut at Melbont. The race, however, is a claim race: a price is put on each horse by the owner and can be claimed for that price if it loses. Jersey Queen loses, and Davis claims the horse. Jorgis and Davis then plan to fix Melbont to make the most money off the betting odds.

Everything goes according to plan, and Jersey Queen wins race after race, making Jorgis' horse an underdog. Green Lantern sees Davis visiting Jorgis, overhears their plan to sabotage Jersey Queen, and heads to the barn to put a stop to their scheme. He takes out the guard and rides away on the horse. Informed of the theft, Jorgis paints another horse up to look like Jersey Queen and sends a few thugs to Irene Miller's farm to find the real horse. They arrive and are confronted by Green Lantern who beats up the thugs. He blinds Jorgis and compels a confession in return for giving the criminal's sight back. After delivering them to the police department, Green Lantern substitutes the real horse in place of the fake, and Jersey Queen wins the race. Irene reveals herself as the jockey, and Davis is arrested. Later, Irene cannot stop talking to Alan about being kissed by the Green Lantern.

Synopsis for Green Lantern: "Disease!!"

The city is struck with an epidemic of pneumonia. While there is a serum to help patients recover, the serum is beginning to run out. When the serum is finally depleted, the district attorney tells the press that Boss Filch and his men stole hospital money meant to buy more of the medicine. The next day, the DA is run over by a car, and Boss Filch is implied to be responsible. At the offices of Apex Broadcasting, Irene Miller and Alan Scott discuss the crisis, and Irene expresses dismay that she cannot act to solve the problem.

That night, Alan transforms into Green Lantern and quickly flies to Filch's home, bursting in past the sputtering butler. He confronts Filch, who protests his innocence. Their meeting is interrupted by Filch's young son, and Green Lantern realizes that the criminal truly cares for his little boy. GL comes to the conclusion he will have to change his tactics to fight this enemy. As the Red Cross begins a charity drive to raise money for more serum, the Green Lantern starts his own charity drive by taking money from gambling, racketeering, and other criminal operations. He delivers the money to the Red Cross and continues fighting gangsters and asking for donations from wealthy individuals in order to help raise money.

While raising money, Green Lantern realizes someone is impersonating him. He locates the imposter, stops him, and donates his money to the cause. With this final amount, the hospital has bought more serum that will arrive in the city by special plane. Again, GL confronts Filch, who still refuses to confess. When Tommy is suddenly stricken with pneumonia, Filch agrees to confess in order to save his son's life. Green Lantern returns with the serum and saves the boy's life, and Filch confesses, implicating Commissioner Merril in the death of the DA. Green Lantern flies to Merril's home and beats up the thugs, leaving them for the police. In the end, Irene moons over Green Lantern's deeds while Alan exclaims that the super-hero is probably just as ordinary as anyone else.
