Even with apparent Bronze Age fluff, there are adult themes of responsibility with power, understanding of limits, and the second story of estrangement and friendship. Two fun but powerful tales from E. Nelson Bridwell and Cary Bates!

In gratitude for his helping Superman liberate them from Calixto, the four-thumbed mutants give Perry White a gift of cigars which give him super-powers.
When Green Arrow goes on the trail of a ring of transporters of stolen merchandise, he is astonished to find the trail leads to his ex-partner Roy Harper, alias Speedy, who is drumming with a rock band called Great Frog. Roy pretends to knock Green Arrow out in the presence of one of the crooks, but is shamming (as is GA) and leaves his old partner a radio transmitter through which he can trace Roy. Green Arrow and Roy find the kingpin of the gang and bring him and his men down. But, when Green Arrow offers to help Roy more, his former ward refuses GA’s help, saying that he needs to be alone for awhile to sort things out and get his band in shape.
