By authority of the mystic guardians of the universe, on the far-distant planet, Oa, Hal Jordan, test pilot becomes the Green Lantern, a cosmic crusader whose magical power ring at his bidding accomplishes the impossible.

His continued fight against planetary evil.

Green Lantern, guardian of the Galaxy.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Planetoid Sargasso, grim and forbidding. A lone stellar mystery that awaits the unsuspecting space traveler; ruled by a beautiful, but vicious queen, who aspires to rule the universe.

Sargasso Officer: “Queen Sirena, another fleet draws within range.”
Queen Sirena: “Ahh. Perhaps they shall draw Green Lantern into my trap.

Bring them down.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Instantly, from the planetoid surface, weird emanations suddenly swirl out and snare the passing craft.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Not very far away, a powerful, experimental ship from Earth bursts through the atmosphere into space, an apprentice test pilot at its controls, accompanied by Cairo, Hal Jordan’s Venusian helper.

Hal Jordan, Test-Pilot: “Ease off Tom, you’re going too far out.”
Cairo, Venusian Help: “He’s going to make a first class test-pilot, boss.”
Hal Jordan, Test-Pilot: “Sure, Cairo. Now, I want you to peel off, Tom — You’re too close to the Sargasso Planetoid.”

Tom, Apprentice Test-Pilot: “Holy smokes, you’re right, Mr. Jordan.”
Cairo, Venusian Helper: “Eyaw! We’re caught in the Sargasso current!”
Tom, Apprentice Test-Pilot: “That weird sound: can’t stand it!”
Cairo, Venusian Helper: “Losing control.”

Hal Jordan, Test-Pilot: “No time to recharge my power ring. Got to get to them fast!

Let those who worship evil’s might beware of my power — Green Lantern’s Light.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


As Green Lantern streaks to the rescue, the young test pilot is ushered before the evil Queen Serena.

Sargasso Officer: “The boy who was with this Earthling escaped us, my Queen.”
Queen Sirena: “No matter. He can go nowhere.

Now, Green Lantern will surely come for these Earth men.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Cairo: “Green Lantern! Over here!”
Green Lantern: “Cairo! How did you . . .”
Cairo: “Look! That’s what’s been pulling down all the ships.”
Green Lantern: “It won’t anymore, Cairo, after a bath in green heat!”

Queen Sirena: “So at last: the fish has taken the bait! Only Green Lantern could destroy my electromagneto wave apparatus.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Green Lantern: “Hold tight, Cairo. This doesn’t look like a friendly welcoming committee.”
Cairo: “Hey! Cut that out you creeps!”
Green Lantern: “Watch me get them to stun themselves.”

Queen Sirena: “I shall do in Green Lantern myself!

The magno-beam attune to his brainwaves.

Now my pet go! Follow the beam!”

Queen Sirena: “His power ring! Quickly get his ring!”

Sargasso Officer: “We have it, Oh Queen.”

Queen Sirena: “Now he is powerless! Lock him up and guard him with your lives.”

Cairo: “Oh no! They’ve taken him prisoner!

Queen Sirena: “Now my loyal subjects, without Green Lantern to protect them, the Guardians of the Universe will fall before my might. Stand by to blast off.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Sargasso Officer One: “Our fleet blasted off.”
Sargasso Officer Two: “This means the end for the mighty Guardians of the Universe.”

A short while later on Planet Oa, in the Great Hall that houses the Immortal Guardians of the Universe . . .

Immortal Guardian, One: “Sirena’s fleet approaches. We are helpless.
Immortal Guardian, Two: “We must find a way to return Green Lantern’s ring to him.”
Immortal Guardian, Three: “What about the Venusian boy, Cairo?”
Immortal Guardian, One: “Ah yes. He’s our only hope. I’ll contact him.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Cairo: “Ah, cut it out, Biphi. This is no time for play. I’ve got to find Green Lantern, and . . .”
Immortal Guardian Leader: “Cairo?”
Cairo: “The Guardian.”
Immortal Guardian Leader: “Listen Cairo. Green Lantern and his ring are in the topmost chamber of the castle.

Go! Help him!”

Cairo: “Wilco. Over and out!”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Cairo: “This window is too small for me. There he is. But how am I going to reach him?

Got it! You can squeeze through, Biphi. Come on, please, in there. Look Biphi, through the window. Hurry, I’m begging you.”

Green Lantern: “Great work, Bestie.”

Officer One: “He’s escaping.”
Officer Two: “Sound the alarm.”

Green Lantern: “Thanks, Cairo. Hop aboard.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Cairo: “Here come more troops boss.”
Green Lantern: “No time to lose. Gotta knock them out fast.”
Cairo: “That’s telling them boss.”
Green Lantern: “Now to wrap them up in a tight beam bundle.”

Now Cairo, you go and release all the prisoners, and get back to Earth in the test ship with Tom, while I go to Oa to intercept Sirena.”

Cairo: “Wilco boss. See you back home.”

. . . . . . . .

Queen Sirena: “Green Lantern! He’s escaped! Destroy him quickly!”

Queen Sirena: “Destroy him with destructo bombs!”

Queen Sirena: “He’s wiped them all out. Now . . . ahhhh!”

Green Lantern: “You’ve got a date oh evil Queen, with the Guardians of the Universe!”

. . . . . . . .

Hal Jordan (Green Lantern): “So the Guardians sentenced Sirena to a long term of galactic confinement, thanks to your quick thinking, Cairo.”
Cairo: “Don’t forget Bipi here boss.”
Green Lantern: “Right, thank you Bipi.”
Cairo: “Boss, can I . . .”
Green Lantern: “Sure, Cairo: keep him. I think he’ll make us a fine mascot.”
