Green Lantern [Alan Scott]; Doiby Dickles; Harlequin [Molly Mayne] (villain, chronological 9th appearance)
Synopsis
A mysterious crime boss devises an ingenious scheme to get Green Lantern and the Harlequin to give up their weapons (his power ring and her spectacles)...then, his gang uses them to commit crimes!

Indexer Notes

The job number indicates that this story was originally to appear in Green Lantern #32. Alan Scott works for Station WXZ and his secretary is Molly Mayne. Oddity: back in issue #3, a Nazi sailor dons the power ring and is automatically destroyed, yet in this story, a crook uses it to commit crimes with no ill effects!
