Synopsis for "Even An Immortal Can Die!"
While driving in the northwestern U.S., Green Arrow, Green Lantern, and their companion - a Guardian in disguise - are suddenly run off the road and off of a bridge by an oncoming truck. They hail a nearby tanker, carrying toxic wastes, but the boat's boiler overheats and explodes, injuring Green Lantern. Green Arrow asks the Guardian if he can help, and he decides to help Green Lantern rather than save the ship. Unfortunately, in order to save the ship, Green Arrow and the crew have to unload the toxic waste into the water, polluting the river.
Afterwards, the Guardians of the Universe appear and accuse the earthbound Guardian of having put the needs of an individual before the greater good, prompting the three to return to the planet Gallo, home of the Tribune, to plead their case. When they arrive, they are met with unexpected hostility, finding only one judge when there should be several, and a jury of strangely biased robots. The Kangaroo Court recommends the death penalty for the Guardian, and the Terrans are imprisoned.
In their prison, the heroes meet the real Tribunes, who reveal that the man who judged them was actually their master mechanic, whose robots took over the city. Green Arrow fashions a bow and an explosive arrow out of available materials to destroy their guard robot. Green Lantern gets his ring back from another robot guard and they all hurry to stop the immanent execution. Unfortunately, they are kept busy by robots long enough that the Guardian is entrapped within a solid cylinder. Green Lantern uses his ring to free the Guardian, who is fortunately unharmed, while Green Arrow apprehends the false judge.
The Earth-heroes expect to return home, but are surprised when the Guardian chooses to remain behind to face judgment for his crimes.
