The Green Lantern

GL fights gambling.

And, once again, "Unwittingly, Slade uses the only weapon that could down the Green Lantern--wood--a non-metal!" How lucky for him. As usual.

Introducing the Mighty Atom

The Atom, eh? I'm familiar with Ray Palmer from the animated stuff, but a glance tells me this guy is of the same lineage. He seems to have no power but great strength, from this first issue. If these stories don't turn out to be nothing but vehicles for fisticuffs, I may read them, along with the GL stories.
