Synopsis for Green Lantern: "The Perfect Crime"

One night, a series of clues lead Green Lantern to a mysterious warehouse, only for him to be gassed, implicated as the thief who robbed the warehouse, and barely escape from the police with help from Doiby. What's more, there's a new commentator at Alan Scott's network, Mel Haney, spouting conspiracy theories that Green Lantern's really masquerading as a policeman and tied into organized crime. However, Haney himself is tied into organized crime. In trying to sneak a peek at Haney's next script, Green Lantern sees him accusing the hero of an art museum robbery and tries to get there to head off the real thieves before he's wrongfully fingered again. However the gang there's expecting him, and while Green Lantern tussles with some of them the rest tip a giant statue over on him, knocking him senseless. GL regains consciousness but is weak and dazed when he comes to. He climbs through the window of a house where lives a young boy who's a fan of his, and pleads with his mother not to give the hero up to the police. She does hide him, knowing Green Lantern's every bit the hero her son believes.

Meanwhile Doiby, dressed as Green Lantern, gets spotted and knocked out by Haney's men before they realize it's just the hero's sidekick. Tracking down his friend, Green Lantern finds the word "plane" scrawled on the floor and catches up to the plane Haney's using to skip town. The crooks throw Doiby out the door to distract Green Lantern while they land near a barn in the country that's another of their hideouts. Haney, determined to author the perfect crime, rigs the plane to fall apart when it gets too high so that his gang will be killed and anyone who could implicate him will be dead. Green Lantern and Doiby catch up to them and a free-for-all battle erupts in the barn. Haney sets the barn alight, but Green Lantern and Doiby break out. In his desperation to escape, Haney flies off in his plane, forgetting he sabotaged it, and meets his end in a fiery crash.
