Synopsis for Green Lantern: "Death Unavoidably Detained"

The great gang boss King Shark is convicted and executed, but soon after appears in his old hideout to try to talk to his old gang, who panic and flee in fear of the "ghost". Doiby overhears two of the crooks talking about while having breakfast in a diner and quickly relays the news to the man who captured King Shark: Green Lantern. The hero powers up his ring and goes to try to intimidate something incriminating out of King Shark's former assistant, Slimy Scratz, who's taken over his racket.

Meanwhile, King Shark talks to his former compatriots, trying to tell them to get out of crime before it's too late. He's spotted by Green Lantern, and explains he actually got a 24 hour reprieve because of an evidence review, and is using the last of his time to try to get his partners to reform. King Shark refuses to run away with his moll, and agrees to turn over all his records to Green Lantern to prove his sincerity. Slimy Scratz and his gang attack but are fended off, however Green Lantern and King Shark come up with a plan. Lantern will leave a trail with his ring that seems to get weaker. This is to make all the criminals King Shark has dirt on think this is their chance to get rid of the hero once and for all, so they can all be arrested together. The heroes lure all the unsuspecting crooks into a trap and capture them.

Doiby protests that they can't allow King Shark to be executed after his selfless actions, and Green Lantern tries to place an emergency call to the governor to plead for clemency. He's told that's impossible: King Shark has been dead the entire time. He suffered a heart attack when he was told about the reprieve, leaving Green Lantern and Doiby mystified.
