Synopsis for "Prisoner of the Power Ring!"
While out testing a new aircraft, Hal Jordan spots some diamond smugglers and changes into Green Lantern. Before he can subdue them with his power ring, a woman's face appears on its surface begging him not to use his ring or he will destroy her. Taking the warning seriously, Hal beats up the crooks the old fashioned way and radios the police to pick them up.
Wondering who the mystery woman is, Hal commands his power ring to tell him what it knows. It tells him of a Dr. Blanding who had created a shrinking device that could shrink people down smaller than an atom. Realizing there may be new worlds on atoms, Blanding hoped to create a scientific utopia, and he and his family (his wife, his daughter Beverley, and her boyfriend) shrank down in size where they built their utopia. Unfortunately, they had ended up on a world inside the power ring. When a strange green radiation filled the sky the robots in their utopia went berserk, so the four humans contacted the source of the radiation: Green Lantern.
Transporting himself to this world, Hal stops the robots before they can kill anybody and returns the Blanding family to Earth, where they decide to accept the world as it is and return to their normal lives.

Synopsis for "The Origin of Green Lantern's Oath!"
One day while watching Green Lantern charge his power ring, Pieface asks Hal where the oath he speaks came from. Hal tells Pieface that it started after three of his most earliest cases that inspired him to say the oath each time he charged his power ring. "In Brightest Day" was inspired by a time when Green Lantern battled crooks who used a blinding light to prevent people from stopping them from making their heists, whom Hal managed to capture. "In Blackest Night" came from another adventure when Hal had to travel into a foggy cave in order to round up some bandits. And "No Evil Shall Escape My Sight" came from a time when Carol's safe was stolen, and Hal (as Green Lantern) was able to find the crooks who took it by scouring the city with his power ring.
