The four men who make up the Challengers of the Unknown travel to Dinosaur Island to investigate a strange meteorite that has crashed. They discover the meteorite just as Batman arrives from another nearby assignment and offers his assistance. A giant spider emerges from the jungle and attacks, and they realize the meteorite radiation has mutated it into a ravenous beast.

Episode Quotes
Blue Beetle: Good idea. Take Evil Star to Oa and turn him over to the Green Lantern Corps. Just one thing--which way is Oa?

Guy Gardner: In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil's might beware my power, Green Lantern's light.
Blue Beetle: Poetry?
Guy Gardner: A sacred oath. That's what I stand for, Bug Boy. What do you stand for? (silence) That's what I thought.

Blue Beetle: I need you three to pour your remaining ring energy into my armor.
Guy Gardner: Like that'll ever happen.
Batman: Another few minutes and we're done for anyway. Why not trust someone for once in your life?
Guy Gardner: I gotta say, that's pretty ironic coming from you, Bats, but what the heck. Let's do it.

Guy Gardner: If you ask me, the kid proved he can handle this tin suit.
Guardian: Perhaps Jaime Reyes has proven that he is the master of the scarab.
Blue Beetle: So does this mean we're buddies, Guy?
Guy Gardner: Let's not get carried away.
