Synopsis for Green Lantern: "League of the Three-Eyed Men"

After a hard day's work Alan Scott asks Irene Miller to take in a show with him, but on the way a man suddenly stumbles into him, warning to "watch out for the oc..." before keeling over dead. Stranger still, the man has a third eye on his forehead, although it turns out to be a temporary tattoo. From clues on the body Alan deduces the man had just come from a certain nightclub, "The Barn", and sends Doiby there with a third eye painted on his forehead to see who reacts. The cigarette girl does, asking if he knows a man named Dan. A pair of toughs named Big Caesar and Brute notice Doiby too, and decide he's suspicious and decide to get rid of him. Green Lantern comes swinging in on a rope to rescue his friend, but the fight's stopped when a man demands no violence in the club, and flashes his card: Mark Vedders, Occultist.

After leaving the club, the duo track down the cigarette girl who says "Dan" was her brother, and recently joined a secretive group called the League of the Three-Eyed Men. Big Caesar and his boys are only low-level minions in the group, but she doesn't have a chance to say more before she's grazed by a bullet. Green Lantern rushes her to a hospital while Doiby clings to the back of the car her assailants, Big Caesar and his boys, use to get away. He tells them he knows how he's going to move up in the world and takes them to a secret meeting of the League of the Three-Eyed Men, their symbol the all-seeing eye, led by Mark Vedders. But more than that, a group of Nazi saboteurs. Caesar's boys aren't so keen on joining up: they might be crooks, but they're still American patriots. Caesar guns them down, but with the last of his strength his minion Brute throws a knife into his back. Big Caesar dies thinking on the irony of meeting the same fate as his namesake while Green Lantern and Doiby mop up the gang.

Vedders himself has escaped to sabotage a ship launch by substituting the bottle of champagne with one full of nitroglycerine. Green Lantern catches up with him and during a fistfight on a bridge Vedders is knocked off and blown to smithereens by his own trap. Doiby exalts in their victory giving the Three-Eyed Men "black eyes".
