Synopsis for "Over Dark Evil"
Molly Mayne is the wife of Alan Scott. Alan has miraculously regained his youth, and Molly cannot deal with the fact that she is still a sixty-odd year old woman married to a man in a twenty-year-old body. She takes a mystic candle (supplied to her by agents of Neron) and lights it. She sells her soul to be young again and is driven mad in the process. Molly goes to Hell.
When Sentinel finds out, he is determined to do all that he can to free her soul. He enlists the aid of the world's most powerful occult mystics, including Zatanna, the Phantom Stranger, Fate and Jim Corrigan. After making a pit-stop at Tannarak's bar, they travel to Hell where they confront a host of villains including Neron, Blackbriar Thorn, Blaze, Satanus, the Spectre and the Demon. The Spectre has been tricked into serving Neron and struggles between his duties to God and his recent pledge to Neron.
Satanus torments Zatanna by making her fight a zombified recreation of her late father, Zatara. Blaze and the Demon keep the others at bay, while Blackbriar Thorn uses wood from the converted souls of the damned to crucify Sentinel. Neron enters the arena and announces that Molly was merely bait to lure the soul of Alan Scott to him.
