Hal Jordon has finally caught up to Guy Gardner and his new yellow power ring, and it turns out that the two heroes are both trying to catch Goldface.
Hal suggests the two team up but Guy doesn’t want to be shown up, so instead Guy beats up Hal. Their fight is stopped when Guy’s current girl Sally and Hal’s best friend Tom are in danger. The two heroes save their friends but Guy still doesn’t want Hal’s help, so Hall takes Tom and flies off to San Francisco.
