Synopsis for "Peril In Plastic"

Hal Jordan and Carol Ferris enjoy a romantic three weeks together, after revealing his secret identity to her. However, eventually, she explains that she plans to go to the company town of Piper's Dell by herself to see if Dr. Wilbur Palm, the mayor, can cure the paralysis of her legs. Later, Hal visits his friend Oliver Queen for some relationship advice, but they soon hear word that Piper's Dell is being threatened by floods caused by bombs around the town.

Green Lantern manages to save the town from destruction, but Dr. Palm insists that he stay, eventually making it impossible for Lantern to leave, and sending a number of men in suits to attack him. He is weakened by an unusual layer of smog above the town and his earlier efforts to save the town, and the attackers soon overtake him. With his last thoughts before falling unconscious, Green Lantern sends his Green Lantern Ring to Star City to find Oliver.

When Green Lantern comes to, he finds that Dr. Wilbur Palm is in fact his old nemesis the Black Hand in disguise. Black Hand reveals that he has used the town's manufacturing facilities to create a system of brainwashing the townspeople, and that his invitation to Carol Ferris was a ploy to bring Green Lantern there. He allows a still powerless Green Lantern and Ms. Ferris to escape, knowing that the brainwashed citizens will attack them.

However, in the meantime, Oliver has found and charged the ring, and returns it to Hal with one of his arrows. Green Lantern detains the citizens in energy constructs, and then uses his ring to entrap the Black Hand within a case of molten plastic.

The heroes make good their escape, and later, while Christmas shopping, Green Arrow makes an unambiguous remark about the evils of a plastic world, and the effect it has on our society.
