Synopsis for Green Lantern: "Napoleon and Joe Safeen"

Beleaguered gangster Joe Safeen is preparing to skip town to escape Green Lantern, but comes upon an escaped mental patient called Napoleon, who's a whiz with numbers. Joe has him figure out the combination to a store's safe, but is spotted in the act by Doiby who uses a supersonic signalling device to call Green Lantern for help. A brawl ensues that ends when Napoleon spots the orderlies coming to bring him back to the asylum and tips over a wooden mannequin that knocks out Lantern.

Lantern and Doiby trail the Safeen gang to another store, and split up with Doiby going in the back and Lantern going in the front. The hero's jumped by the orderlies because of his strange garb, only for them to realize he isn't Napoleon because he's wearing the wrong strange garb. Green Lantern goes in and gets knocked out by the gang members wielding wooden bats, and they split up to avoid detection. Joe takes Green lantern and tells Napoleon to take Doiby and meet up with them. Napoleon gets another idea and forces Doiby to switch clothes at gunpoint. Meanwhile the Safeen gang puts Lantern in a room they've doused with gasoline and leave a burning candle on his forehead to ignite it. Doiby finds him and knocks the candle away by throwing his hat like a boomerang.

Needing to find Napoleon before he can crack anymore safes for Safeen, Green Lantern gets the idea to fly around singing the French national anthem, and sure enough he leans out a window to correct Lantern's lyrics. Inside the room, the Safeen gang is committing another robbery but this time the duo manages to capture them. Green Lantern delivers Napoleon back to the asylum, only to learn he isn't a patient, he's the head of the facility who took an unannounced vacation.
