Synopsis for "Menace of the Giant Puppet!"

This story is reprinted from Green Lantern (Volume 2) #1.

As Carol laments over yet another date with the Green Lantern ending with the Lantern saving a man who is drowning, the Lantern is presently participating in the annual Coast City parade. His mind is also elsewhere, but instead of romance like Carol, he's thinking about a series of bizarre crimes that have been plaguing the city. In each case, a law-abiding citizen tries to rob a place and is captured by the Green Lantern. In each situation the person caught claims to have been controlled as if like a puppet. After a series of "puppet master" crimes, Green Lantern is convinced that there is somebody controlling other people. Hal is suddenly snapped out of his thoughts when one of the balloons in the parade -- made to look like a puppet -- suddenly comes to life and starts shooting at him with a giant gun. Hal however, easily defeats the puppet with his power ring.


Later while taking Carol to a dance, the Puppet Master uses his hypno-ray to bring Green Lantern to his secret hideout. The Emerald Crusader manages to free himself and the Puppet Master is no match in battle against him and he easily captures him and turns him over to the police.
