Synopsis for Superman & Batman: "Thou Shalt Have No Other Batman Before Me"
While on an assignment to an small town called Dalton Corners, Clark Kent learns of the existence of a Bat-Man figure much prior to his friend, Batman's debut. Superman calls Batman and together, they investigate the mystery in the town of Dalton Corners and run into cultists trying to raise an evil bat-god.
While Batman is left to handle the situation in the small town, Superman travels to Australia to find the original "Bat-Man". Batman is unable to confront the bat-god and he is only saved by the timely arrival of Superman and the Bat-Man. The Man of Steel is unable to stop the magical creature and it is up to the Batmen to fight the bat-god. Using magic from their ancestors, the Bat-Man is able to defeat the bat-god and in the aftermath, they explain that the origin of the bat-god and the Bat-Man has its roots on ancient indian rituals.
Finally, Clark Kent is still the best reporter of Galaxy Communications, despite having failed on his assignment and all because he has the required information about the recent events about the bat creature.

Synopsis for Green Arrow: "Nothing But a Man"
Oliver Queen's campaign for the mayor's race against Ralph Halstead goes into high gear when super-heroes begin endorsing Queen. Subsequently, Queen is kidnapped by hoods and forced into a meeting with crime-boss Thaddeus Cable. There he learns that his mentor, incumbent mayor Jack Major, has secretly been in cahoots with Cable for over twenty years. Queen manages to secretly switch to Green Arrow and battle his way out, then, with the help of Green Lantern and Black Canary, stops two of Cable's gunmen from attempting to assassinate him at his campaign headquarters. Jack Major, also at the scene, dies of a heart attack, but admits to Oliver Queen before he dies that he did cut a deal with Cable. Ralph Halstead wins the election, possibly due to rigged votes. But when Clark Kent calls Queen's residence to tell him that Oliver may really have won the election and could be proven the winner after an investigation, Dinah Lance tells Kent not to pursue the inquest. The disillusioned Green Arrow no longer wants to be mayor.
