Synopsis for "Green Lantern: The Other Side of the World!"

This story is reprinted from Green Lantern (Volume 2) #42.

In her continued quest to find her father, Zatanna has traveled to the realm of Brittany, where she seeks to open the portal to the land of Ys. While in Coast City, Hal receives word of a villain named Patch-Eyed Pete robbing a bank in town. Changing into Green Lantern, when Hal speaks his oath while charging his power ring, both he and Pieface are shocked when Hal recites the Green Lantern oath backwards.

Hal rushes off to stop Patch-Eyed Pete, and Hal suddenly finds that his power ring is able to pull off feats that it never has been able to do in the past (such as protect him from Pete's golden cutlass) Chasing Pete to Brittany, Pete escapes through the portal to Ys, following Hal finds himself lost in the magical tunnel to Ys and is saved by Zatanna.

Zatanna explains that she has come to Ys to search for her father after unsuccessfully finding him in the past with the help of Hawkman, Hawkgirl and the Atom. Learning that the Warlock of Ys had dispatched Patch-Eye Pete to Earth to lure the Green Lantern to Ys so that the Warlock could steal Green Lantern's power ring and use it to escape Ys, Zatanna decided to intervene.

The two heroes work together to fight off the Warlock's minions and keep Warlock from using his magic to remove Green Lantern's ring. Taking the fight to Warlock, the Warlock provides the heroes with an ultimatum: If Green Lantern agrees to give him the power ring without commanding it to do anything to capture him, then he will tell Zatanna what she wants to know about her father. Complying, Warlock reveals that Zatara had come to his realm to take his crystal ball that would allow him to travel to Earth, and succeed in taking the bauble and transported to points unknown.

With the information told, the Warlock attempts to use the power ring but instead of allowing him to leave Ys, it immobilizes him. Taking his ring back, Hal tells the inert Warlock, that while he promised that he wouldn't command his power ring to double cross the Warlock, Zatanna made no such promises. With their quest complete, the two heroes return to Earth, where Zatanna departs to continue her quest to find her father.

Synopsis for "Beauty and the Super-Beast!"

This story is reprinted from Superman #165.

Lois Lane is launched into space but a meteor threatens her capsule. Superman attempts to destroy it but is only able to divert it away. As the meteor heads towards Washington, Superman catches up and this time manages to shatter it. Meanwhile Lana Lang leads an expedition to Crete to search for Circe's tomb, following clues in an ancient papyrus. The clues prove to be correct and she uncovers Circe asleep in a glass-topped coffin. When the lid is opened, Circe awakes and immediately threatens Superman for previously scorning her. She is brought to the Metropolis Museum where she confronts the Man of Steel, using her magic to give him the head of a lion, but then decides that it is too noble a beast and changes his head to that of a mouse. She then uses her powers to force him to do her bidding. As he prepares to dig the foundations for the new City Hall, Circe orders him to dive deep into the Earth to retrieve a handful of gravel. Superman is able to kick out a large slab of bedrock, thus creating the foundations, while still obeying her command. Then, as he follows a tip-off to foil a bank robbery, Circe commands him to juggle while hovering upside-down. Superman is able to disable the miniature tank the robbers are using by throwing the juggling balls at it. Circe accepts that she will never persuade Superman to marry her, and vanishes. Superman scans the skies with his super-vision and sees an alien spacecraft belonging to the Revenge Squad breaking orbit and heading away from Earth. He meets up with Circe, who proves to be Saturn Woman in disguise. The Superman Revenge Squad had hit the Man of Steel with an experimental ray that left him powerless--unless, as he discovered, he was upside-down. To make them think the ray was a failure, Superman came up with the Circe plan to give him an excuse for performing his super-feats head down. He sent Krypto into the future to fetch Saturn Woman, who created a fake tomb so she could be 'discovered' as Circe by Lana's expedition, with her shape-shifting pet Proty II giving the impression that Superman's head had changed to those of a lion and a mouse. When the effects of the ray had worn off, it was safe to end the ruse and the Revenge Squad withdrew, never knowing that their plan had succeeded.
