Synopsis for "Green Lantern: Wizard of the Light-Wave Weapons!"
This story is reprinted from Green Lantern (Volume 2) #33.
When Dr. Light shows up in Coast City seeking to defeat Green Lantern, the first in his plot to defeat all the Justice League members one-on-one, Hal Jordan changes into Green Lantern to meet the challenge. However, in their initial fight, Green Lantern is knocked out, however instead of falling to his death, the power ring opens up a hole in the Earth for Hal to fall into until he wakes up and pull himself up.
Searching for Dr. Light with Pieface, Green Lantern detects the villain in the area. Since Hal Jordan is needed to appear to receive an aerospace reward, he uses his power ring to make Pieface look like Hal Jordan to get the prize for him. Green Lantern battles Dr. Light once more. When Dr. Light is able to put Green Lantern on the ropes in a fight, Green Lantern pretends to drop his power ring. When Dr. Light grabs for the faux-ring, he falls into Green Lantern's trap, the ring suddenly turns into a green bubble that imprisons Dr. Light.
Leaving Light for the authorities, Green Lantern rushes to the award show to relieve Pieface, and arrives just as Pieface had finished receiving the award for Hal.

Synopsis for "Doll Man: The Man in the Iron Mask"
This story is reprinted from Doll Man #15.
Doll Man is given a radio-controlled toy airplane, which can hover, from his pal Doctor Roberts, and they call it the Doll-Plane. Moments later, gang leader Dan Vittorio is fleeing the scene of a hit-and-run crash and pursued by cops when Doll Man flies by and distracts him, causing him to fatally crash his car off a bridge, into a second crash with a canyon wall, where it bursts into flame and plunges into the river far below. But after Doll Man flies away, Vittorio crawls out of the river, alive but horribly disfigured. A kindly benefactor finds him and nurses him back to health, and later shows him a medieval whole-head helmet, and its painstakingly-handmade unique key. Vittorio flips out when he sees how badly his face is damaged, and murders the old man.
Doll Man and the cops decide to round up Frank Morgo and the rest of Vittorio's big crime syndicate, and over the next few days, they do so, but Vittorio soon reappears, now dba the Iron Mask, and re-seizes control over Vittorio's old gang, and shoots his old lieutenant Morgo dead, with a tommy gun, just to shut him up before he can blurt out his real name. Nobody else in the room feels like guessing who he obviously is, either. But unluckily for the Iron Mask, Doll Man has just that day been spying on Morgo, and now springs to attack the Iron Mask. His jump-punch is much less effective than usual, against a steel helmet, and the villain makes good use of his new headgear to defeat Doll Man with one swift helmet-to-bare-head konk. Iron Mask trusses up Doll Man, and drops him into the gangster hide-out's aquarium, then doesn't wait around to watch him drown. Doll Man busts the side of the fish tank and escapes.
Making an improbable deduction about the site of Iron Mask's next crime, Doll Man calls some cops and they zoom over to the estate of Northrop Schuyler, where they interrupt Iron Mask's gunpoint robbery of some expensive wallpaper. (It's expensive because Schuyler has very eccentrically used his collection of rare stamps to wallpaper his study.) As cops charge into the room, the Iron Mask leaps out thru a closed window and runs away, pursued by Doll Man, who quickly catches and trips him, but the Mask again outfights the little hero, and runs away. But in the fracas, Iron Mask drops the key that opens his mask, so he has to return to the scene of the fight, and this time Doll Man takes him out with a jump punch to the solar plexus.
