Police forensics scientist, Barry Allen, witnesses the assassination of Charlie Conwell, at the hands of the Maxel Mob. Allen attempts to intervene, as the Flash, but trips, thus failing to stop the lethal bullet. The Flash runs down the sniper, first eliminating his cover, then bringing him down to Earth. The sniper is turned over to the authorities, while Conwell is rushed to the hospital. Though Conwell is elected the new District Attorney of Central City, he dies that night. The assassin, too, dies that same night, having been paid in money laced with a powerful contact poison. The assassin's "ghost" accosts one of the members of the Maxel Mob, outside a local pool hall.
The "ghost" reveals himself to be the Flash, who follows the thug back to Maxel. The Flash loses the upper hand when Maxel activates a hidden hyper-sonic siren. Maxel, and his men, wear special earplugs at all times, so as not to be affected whenever the siren is in use. While the Flash is incapacitated, Maxel's bodyguard, Barbie, beats him into unconsciousness. Maxel is about to murder the Flash, when a cloud of money begins floating around the room. Suddenly, the sprinkler systems activate, reviving the Flash. At the last second, the Flash vibrates his molecules into insubstantiality, allowing Maxel's bullet to pass harmlessly through him.
Maxel hits the hyper-sonic siren again, taking himself, and all his followers out. Moving faster than the eye could see, the Flash removed all of their earplugs, while putting on a pair himself. With the Maxel Mob arrested, Conwell's murder has been avenged. At Conwell's gravesite, the Flash, as Allen, confides in his wife, PIcture News reporter, Iris West, that he felt Conwell was with him, the entire time he was bringing down the Maxel Mob. Unseen by the Allens, Conwell's ghost walks behind them, as they exit the cemetery.
"Yellow Is A Dirty Little Color!"
The Green Lantern is on hand, in Indiana, to apprehend a bank robber. Upon his apprehension, though, the robber's bag of loot is empty. The banker accuses the Green Lantern of, accidentally, destroying the money, during the course of the apprehension. After recharging his ring, the Green Lantern realizes it would have been impossible for his power ring to have vaporized the money. The Green Lantern returns to police headquarters, to find the bank robber has been released on bail.
Tracking the bank robber down, the Green Lantern confirms that the robber is in league with the banker. The satchel never had any money in it. The banker intended to file an insurance claim for the stolen money, then pocket the actual "stolen" funds. After turning the two men over to the authorities, the Green Lantern explains that his power beam couldn't have destroyed the money, as the inner lining of the satchel was bright yellow, the one color his ring is powerless against.
