Synopsis for Green Lantern: "..., Our New Police Chief"

Middle Village is threatened by a rampant crime wave and no chief of police to lead resistance to it. Irene Miller complains about the inhumanity of the situation to Alan Scott, who decides to switch to Green Lantern and take the position of police chief. He takes a very hands-on approach, yanking reckless drivers out of their cars and throwing them what it's like to nearly be run over. He saves a bridge-jumper who's lost everything to a gambling addiction then, with Doiby, who's wearing a simulacrum of his costume, Green Lantern crashes into the house of illicit gambling, destroys the place then hunts down the supplier of the rigged slot machines and melts them with his green flame before hauling in the gambling racket members in emerald handcuffs.

Crime boss Big Mike Costello frames Green Lantern by making it seem like he's taking payoffs, but Green Lantern escapes. The mayor's secretary commits suicide, supposedly exonerating Green Lantern by admitting to being the city's crime kingpin, but a Latin phrase in his suicide note ("Aedilis Me Necabit") implicates Police Commissioner Burkis, as the hero claims it means "the police commissioner is about to murder me". Locking up Burkis, the real crime kingpin, Green Lantern's offered the job of police chief permanently, but he declines, since somewhere else there's bound to be another town in need. After riding in a ticker tape parade, that is.
