Synopsis for Green Lantern: "Head Trip"

After being stroke by Mind Games' mental powers, Green Lantern is trapped inside his own mind. Hal is confronted by different attacks represented by different emotions, like hatred, guilt, jealous rage, passion, and fear. But since he is fearless, Hal is immune to that last attack, so he gets free from Mind Games' trap and knocks him out.

Hal delivers the villain into the police HQ and goes back to his apartment. Intrigued by why he was immune to Mind Games' lattest attack, Hal asks his power ring why he is without fear, and the ring responds "Ring-bearer is fearless as per instructions". Confused, Hal commands the ring to show him what is it talking about. Answering that command, Hal Jordan gets sucked inside the ring.

Synopsis for Nightwing: "The Cheshire Contract!"

In New York City, Nightwing rounds up a group of smugglers with the timely assistance of friend and fellow Titan Speedy. Later at Titans Tower, Speedy tells Dick the Central Bureau of Investigation needs his help to track down Cheshire, the mother of Speedy's child, who has been hired to kill some ambassadors and stop a treaty between the US and Russia. Dick wants to call in his fellow Titans, but the bowman states he can't, that it has to be just Nightwing. The pair fly to Washington D.C. and meet with a man who tells them the "first hit" is in London. In England, Cheshire takes aim at her target, but sees Speedy and Nightwing before she can pull the trigger. To herself, the killer says the bowman has gotten in her way long enough and even though he may be the father of her daughter, that won't save him now.

Synopsis for Catwoman: "The Tin Roof Club, Part 3"

Catwoman pulls Holly out of her house just as it explodes, but she is too late as her friend dies from her injuries. Later, as Selina is drowning her sorrows back at "The Tin Roof Club" (even though the police have it cordoned off), cop George Flannery arrives and tells her to "dry up" and get out while she can. Catwoman goes to the "Gotham Plaza" and confronts Holly's ex-husband, Arthur. Surprised he knows who she really is (after all, Holly "could never keep her mouth shut"), Selina tells Arthur she knows there was no gas leak at the house (after all, she was there) and that she will keep her mouth shut in exchange for the brooch she had "lent" to Holly a few days earlier. Arthur refuses and calls security just before Selina begins to choke him with her whip. Struggling to breath, Arthur points to the sock drawer and Selina removes the box, turning her back on her enemy. As security knocks on the door, Arthur grabs Selina and hurls her out the high rise window.

Notes

  • Nightwing: "The Cheshire Contract!" was reprinted in Nightwing: Old Friends, New Enemies.
  • This issue marks Dick Grayson's first solo feature as Nightwing.
  • In "The Cheshire Contract!", Nightwing tells Speedy how the separation with Batman really came about as two versions (one in which Dick quit and the other in which Batman fired him) seem to be floating around. This contradiction in versions is brought about thanks to the events of the Crisis on Infinite Earths, which erased Earth-One continuity and created a new continuity.
  • Crisis on Infinite Earths: The Compendium states this issue happened on Earth-85, presumably referencing the "Tin Roof Club" Catwoman arc. However, it cannot be determined if the other stories told in this issue that don't contradict larger continuity happened on New Earth, Earth-85, or both.
  • "Wicked Business!" is reprinted in Superman: The Power Within.
