Synopsis for Green Lantern: "The Icicle Goes South"

The chapter opens on the notorious Icicle falling to his demise after his last encounter with Green Lantern, which we're then shown is a television reenactment of the heroic battle. Except it turns out "the Icicle" isn't an actor with a fake freeze ray prop but the real villain, alive after all, who freezes Alan Scott and flies him off to the South American republic of Perumbia. The Icicle has a deal to help a revolutionary general overthrow the government, and kidnapped Alan Scott to run a machine that will jam all broadcasts that evening when the general stages his coup so the government can't call for help. Scott's then unceremoniously shoved into a closet until the appointed hour.

Even though the charge on his ring is dying, Scott changes to Green Lantern and blasts out, turning the guards' guns into toys that shoot chocolate balls. Flying across the country he sees it starting to snow, something the Perumbians have never seen before. GL arrives at a volcano where the Icicle is standing on the rim and shooting clouds with his freeze ray to cause the snow. They battle and the Icicle wins by freezing a whole cloud and dropping it on GL.Icicle ties him up and leaves him inside the rim to await the upcoming eruption. With the charge on his ring worn off, the hero's death seems certain until Lorna Dawn, the secret agent GL met in his last battle with the Icicle, shows up with Doiby Dickles who brought the magic lantern with them.

Meanwhile the Icicle betrays the general and robs the Perumbian national treasury. He tries to escape while Green Lantern's saving the city below from the volcanic eruption, but GL catches the wings of his plane in giant green hands and knocks the villain unconscious. The coup's overthrown, and GL flies back to the States to turn the Icicle over to the law.
