"The Slowest Man On Earth"

While serving his wife, Picture News reporter, Iris West, breakfast in bed, police forensics scientist, Barry Allen, begins shaking uncontrollably. Allen decides to investigate his inexplicable condition, as the Flash. Simultaneously, in Blue Valley, Wally West also begins shaking uncontrollably. He too, decides to investigate his condition, as Kid Flash. Their speed-sensitive bodies caught in a vibration-stream, the Scarlet Speedsters trace the energy signature back to a strange device, planted in a remote field. Arriving at virtually the same instant, from different directions, the Scarlet Speedsters collide into one another. Upon recovery, though, only the Flash remains. At that moment, the Turtle contemplates the plan he's set in motion.

Using his centrifugal booster, the Turtle intends to speed up the rotation of the Earth, reversing his chronically slow metabolism. The moment the Flash touches the centrifugal booster, it sinks into the ground. The Flash suddenly vanishes, revealing Kid Flash in his place. Kid Flash races to Central City, to consult with the Flash. En route, he encounters an impossible tidal wave, jeopardizing the town of Bergville. Borrowing a shovel from a nearby hardware store, Kid Flash hastily erects a wall to dam the wave. Seconds after Kid Flash arrives at the Allen household, he vanishes, only to have the Flash suddenly reappear. A news bulletin reveals world wide catastrophes, occurring on account of the planet's accelerated rotation.

The Flash races to the arctic to slow down the encroachment of a glacier. Once more, the Flash disappears, leaving Kid Flash in his place. Finally realizing that their molecules were fused together, when they crashed into one another, the Scarlet Speedsters separate themselves. Returning to the site where they discovered the centrifugal booster, the Scarlet Speedsters quickly unearth it. Then, they destroy the device. Meanwhile, having regained his normal metabolism, the Turtle robs a bank. When the Scarlet Speedsters close on him, the Turtle protects himself by hiding within his shell. Racing around the Turtle, the Flash is surprised when the shell's aerodynamic design launches it into the air. The Flash hurls Kid Flash at the Turtle, bringing the villain down.

Duel For A Death-List!

Hal Jordan is en route to Arizona, in pursuit of a potential job prospect, when he spies the flash of an explosion. After charging his power ring, Jordan investigates, as the Green Lantern. At the site of an unfinished skyscraper, the Green Lantern discovers a dying alien. The alien passes the Green Lantern a list, before being gunned down. The Green Lantern engages the alien's murderer. Each time the Green Lantern lashes out with his power beam, the killer teleports away, while simultaneously blasting the Green Lantern. The Green Lantern places the murder victim in a protective force field, in Earth's orbit.

The Green Lantern then beams the skyscraper into orbit as well. Having eliminated the needed mass for the murderer's teleportation device to home in on, the killer is left with no means of transportation. The Green Lantern mercilessly beats the alien killer down with his bare hands. Defeated, the alien killer commits suicide. Having translated the list, Green Lantern is disturbed to discover that it is a list of five names, all marked for death. Four of the names have been crossed off. The remaining name on the list, is the Green Lantern's own.
