Synopsis for Green Lantern: "The Man Who Couldn't Fail"

Alan Scott is called back to his alma mater, Hale U, by his math professor to ask for help. Or rather, to ask him to use his broadcast position to ask for help. Someone left a perplexing formula on his desk and the professor's been unable to solve it but unable to think of anything else, and asks Alan to broadcast a request for help from the long-missing prodigy, Ira Selby, who was a Hale student once.

It turns out that Selby was once a child prodigy, but after graduating Hale was unable to get any academic positions because of his age, and because he had no practical skills, no other employment besides bit parts in stage plays, where he mastered the art of disguise. Now Selby's a lowly janitor at the university, plotting revenge. He was the one who planted the all-consuming formula, allowing his gang to rob the professor's house without being noticed. Alan and Doiby are nearby and intervene, but Selby bumps into them while disguised as an old professor, giving his men time to escape. Green Lantern mentions the faux professor's name to his old professor and is told there's no "Professor Ybelsari" working for Hale, but when he tries to pick up the trail only finds Selby back in his role as the campus janitor.

Later Alan finds one of those perplexing formulas about radio broadcasts and can't think of anything else. Fortunately he has his sidekick Doiby around to dump cold water over his head and shock him out of it. It's also given him clarity of mind to figure out "Ybelsari" is "Ira Selby" backwards and that the former prodigy is the cause the recent campus deviltry. They attack, but Selby warns the heroic duo off, saying he's the only one who can solve the problems driving professors on campus crazy, and leaves them tied to a pipe in the basement. GL easily frees them with his ring and flies off to stop Selby from using the university's cyclotron to create an atomic blast and level the school. To make up for his neglect, the university agrees to give Selby a professorship after he's served his term. Later, as Alan and Doiby are driving home, the cabbie remarks being around all those professors made him feel dumb, but Alan praises his practical smarts for the cold water trick that ultimately saved the day.
