"The Million Dollar Deathtrap!"
In prison, Samuel Scudder bets Roscoe Dillon a million dollars that, not only will Scudder escape their cell within 12 seconds, but that the Flash will take his place, within 12 hours. Dillon scoffs, but accepts the wager. True to his word, Scudder teleports out of their cell, via the mirror-like polish he's put on his shoes. Scudder, as the Mirror Master, sets about retrieving Dillon's million dollars, from a top-shaped satellite, in low Earth orbit. As the satellite is drawn to Earth, onlookers see the image of the Flash, tied to the satellite, burning up on re-entry. Among the crowd of bystanders is police forensic scientist, Barry Allen, who takes action, as the Flash.
Cracking open a fire hydrant, the Flash slows the satellite's descent with a high-speed, pressurized jet of water. As soon as the satellite touches down, it spins away, at high velocity, just like a top. The Flash runs it down, just as the Mirror Master arrives to collect it. The Flash dodges the Mirror Master's laser fire, then attacks, only to discover that the Mirror Master is merely a reflected illusion. With the Flash in pursuit, the Mirror Master "flees", leading the Flash back to the prison.
With a bit of trick flying,the Mirror Master maneuvers the Flash into his old cell, still occupied by Dillon. Having rigged the cell with mirror sensors, the Mirror Master informs the Flash that if he tries to vibrate back out, an atomic bomb will detonate, killing thousands of prison inmates. To add insult to injury, the Mirror Master offers Dillon his Top costume, so that he may die as his masked identity. Having no choice but to work together, the Flash, reluctantly, teams up with his arch-nemesis, the Top, to thwart the Mirror Master.
With the Top acting as a stabilizer, the Flash is able to vibrate out of the cell, without triggering the mirror sensors. The Flash catches up with the Mirror Master just as he is finishing looting the Top's satellite. Before he can react, the Mirror Master is quickly defeated, and returned to prison. A sullen Dillon vows revenge on both his nemesis, the Flash, and the man who betrayed him, the Mirror Master.
The Fate Of An Archer
While calling the Green Lantern from a pay phone, the Black Canary is run down by a drugged driver. The Green Lantern arrives in seconds, to find the Black Canary grievously injured. To make matters worse, the Black Canary's blood type is exceptionally rare, and hospitals are, currently, in short supply of it. Recharging his power ring, the Green Lantern sets off in search of the one man who can help the Black Canary... Oliver Queen. The Green Lantern discovers the wreckage of the Arrowplane, spread across a California mountain range. After dealing with a scavenger, Rink Willard, rummaging about in the wreckage, the Green Lantern tracks Queen to a secluded monastery.
Having accidentally slain a man, in his guise as the Green Arrow, Queen has come to the monastery is search of forgiveness, and to find a new way of life. The head of the monastery, though, impresses on Queen that his life as the Green Arrow has not yet come to an end. The Green Lantern arrives to collect Queen, informing him of the Black Canary's dire situation. Queen responds angrily to his forced return to "civilization", but, nonetheless, accompanies the Green Lantern. The head of the monastery passes on his own bow to Queen. As the Green Lantern and Queen exit the monastery, they are ambushed by Rink Willard.
Willard beats the Green Lantern unconscious with the butt of his rifle. Terrified of killing another man by accident, Queen freezes, allowing Willard to beat him down, without resistance. When Queen revives, he finds his hands tied. The Green Lantern, too, is bound, and slowly sinking into a quagmire.Though his ring has been neutralized, the Green Lantern is ever defiant in the face of death. Finding an arrowhead, Queen cuts his bonds, and makes a run for his bow. In one fluid motion, Queen grabs the bow and fires an arrow, through the sight on Willard's rifle, causing the gun to slam into Willard's face, rendering him unconscious. Back in Star City, the Black Canary is recovering thanks to Queen's transfusion of his blood.
