Synopsis for "The Creature That Was Exchanged For Superman"
While on a charity drive for the Heart Fund, Batman, Robin and Superman spot a strange energy beam outside the city and decide to go and investigate. Superman decides to get up close since he is invulnerable, and finds himself teleported away, and in his place some strange creature. Concerned about this creatures sudden arrival, Batman and Robin attempt to rope it up but it breaks free and begins to tunnel into the ground. Batman, spotting a bolder at the top of the hill it's boring into comes up with an idea of how to attack the creature.
Meanwhile, Superman finds himself transported to the planet Xeron by an alien named Vathgar. Vathgar explains that he transported the creature to Earth, but one draw back to the device was that it has to swap places with something at it's destination. Not wanting Superman, the aliens attack him but the Man of Steel proves impervious to their weapons. However when he uses his heat vision he finds that it freezes things instead of melting them, his flying powers are wonky when he gives Vathgar chase and the alien manages to get away. Flying to a nearby city, he sees a runaway vehicle and attempts to save people by using his super-breath and is shocked to find that he has flame breath instead. When the people of Xeron attack him, Superman convinces them to stop to compare notes. He learns that Vathgar is a criminal on this world and that he had captured two Skrans for some unknown purpose. Superman agrees to track down Vathgar to learn his purpose.
While back on Earth, the Skran sent there comes out of it's tunnel and no matter what Batman and Robin attempt to do to stop it, some impenetrable force keeps them from stopping the creature. While back on Xeron, Superman tracks down Vathgar and learns that he had sent the Skran to Earth because there is a element there that is rare on Xeron that makes the Skran's invincible and he intended to use the creatures to overthrow the government and take over his world. Superman is forced to battle the Skran that Vathgar has and realizes that extreme cold renders the creature harmless when he uses his freeze vision on the creature.
Back on Earth, the military fires all their artillery at the Skarn there causing it to split in two. One of the creatures passes through the returning teleportation beam, returning Superman to Earth as well. Superman flies off and comes back with a large chunk of ice to drop on the Skarn to render it harmless. With the beast quelled, the heroes bring it off to the Gotham Zoo to resume the remainder of its docile life.

Synopsis for "The Return of Miss Arrowette"
After seeing two successive Green Arrow signal flames, Miss Arrowette believes that something is wrong and swings into action once more. Lending a hand to what appear to be Green Arrow and Speedy, Miss Arrowette becomes suspicious when they don't act like they normally do. Little does she now that they are impostors, and that the real Green Arrow and Speedy are prisoners of criminals, and that they are allowing this charade so that the police can be led to the criminals secret headquarters.
When Miss Arrowette (misguidedly) exposes "Green Arrow" and "Speedy" as impostors, they take her hostage and bring her back to their base. When she arrives, Green Arrow and Speedy free themselves and the trio shut down the criminals operation.
