Synopsis for "Mind Over Magnetism"
Doctor Polaris has trapped Green Lantern at the North Pole, stolen his power ring and traveled to Los Angeles where he combines the ring's power and his own magentic powers into enthralling the population into mindless zombies. With each person he affects, he grows stronger and manages to fight off an attack by several military vehicles. At the North Pole, Green Lantern manages to free himself from the restraining device he had been trapped in and begins a long journey towards civilization. He manages to catch a fish, fend off a polar bear (during which he falls into the freezing waters) and a wolf, become snow blind and still stumble upon a scientific expedition which takes him to safety. In New York City, Carol Ferris is kidnapped. The government cancels their contract with Ferris Aircraft which will put it out of business. Shortly afterwards Ferris Aircraft's location is bombed.
