Where would Green Arrow fit? The part about the "nest" seems to say Hornet. Also, interesting bit about the numbers. But what does it mean...?

Nice going, Vist. The only reason I skipped over Lantern for #2 is that the GL oath is quoted at the start of the episode. There are a couple of things that confuse : "not be on this day" - there are "lantern day" celebrations in various parts of the world: and "ducks needn't be in a row" (sounds a bit like "arrow") Duck is also nickname/bingo name for "2" . I won't ask how you happen to know 23^5..... :P

Aar, I think you're looking at #4

Ah, yeah, nice catch fabby.
Ok, so basically we're only looking for #1.

Stanza 2)Green Arrow
Stanza 3)Green Goblin
Stanza 3)Green Hornet


I noticed they all have the same amount of letters in them. Maybe the second name is only 6 letters too?


Edit: Wait, Arrow has 5. But still, thinking along those lines is worth a shot.

Maybe this has to do with the heroes' alter egos? The Green Arrow is Oliver Queen, and it's hinted at in the first stanza. Norman Osborn has 12 letters (a base for one of the exponents), and Britt Reid has 9. However, Oliver Queen has 11 letters, and none of the numbers given is 11 raised to the power of anything.

Tell me, is there any "green" superhero/villain that has to do with chemicals in some way?

The agents were making good progress towards finding the keys, but Orin felt something wasn't quite right. We're missing something, he thought, frowning.

Suddenly he heard a chuckle from behind him. He turned and saw the leprechaun, peaking out from behind a bush. It winked at him.

I think that the interpretation of stanzas 3 & 4 are correct and the alter egos are the bases for the numbers.

With the clue, stanza 2 could refer to the partnership of the Green Arrow and Green Lantern. If this is the case then you have their alter egos of Oliver Queen (11) and Harold Jordan (12). That would make the final base 23.

That's impressive, but it still doesn't explain the first two lines of the last two stanzas. It seems to me that the first two lines of each stanza are describing something else, maybe a character trait. Then, I'm guessing that we probably add those letters to those of each superhero. I can't think of anything that would fit any of those clues, though.

I can't tie it in with the number clues, but could it be the 1st 2 lines of stanzas 2-4 are prefixes of "GREEN" and possibly unrelated to lines 3 & 4? eg . stanza 3 could be METHYL green which is used to track DNA. Things seem to have come to a bit of a halt, so I'm suggesting it on the off-chance that it may set someone's thought process in the right direction.

I've pretty much hit a wall on this one. The way I've been looking at the poem so for is that the first stanza sort of give directions. I think the "Get in position..." line somehow refers to the first 2 lines of each stanze while the "And take it to..." line refers to the last 2 lines of each stanza. So I think each stanza should somehow correspond to a number raised to the power of a 2nd number (x^y) and that will equal one of the 6 available numbers for us to choose. I think we have the word answers for each of the last lines in each stanza, but I haven't found a way to map those to the available numbers.

Also, if the above is at all right then it might help to look at the available numbers in terms of x^y. They are:
23^5
12^5
18^4
3^10
14^4
5^6
