While in space, Hal -- as Green Lantern -- is hurrying to Earth to be in time for a date with Carol Ferris, however he suddenly finds him on a strange world and bangs his head. Regaining conciousness, he learns from two beings that he is on the world of the Spectrans, a species that live on a world that is a minor vibrational difference with Earth, but occupying the same space. Allowing Hal to leave, it turns out that the Spectran's are plotting to take over the Earth and plan to use the Green Lantern to capture the Flash, so that they can learn the secret to super-speed.
