Synopsis for "The Christmas Impulse"
Christmas is coming up and Max Mercury is still recovering after being shot by a gang member on Halloween. Bart Allen's mom, Meloni, comes to visit, and she and Max watch the Green Cigarette attempt to rob a bank on TV. Impulse shows up to stop him, but once the bank's security features cause the whole building to collapse, the Green Cigarette and his men abandon the robbery to help the people in the spirit of Christmas.
