Synopsis for "The Test"

Green Lantern and the rest of the Green Lantern Corps are surprised to discover that Legion has survived a nuclear blast, back on earth. Kilowog orders the Corps to head for cover while he distracts the villain. Unfortunately, Legion manages to kill several Corps members.
The Corps move underground, hoping to use the planet's bedrock as a weapon against Legion. Salakk and Tomar-Re devise a plan to trap their enemy within a sphere of the mineral Oamite. Once again, however, Legion escapes, killing yet another Corpsman.
Legion beats his way through Kilowog and Salakk, into the chamber where the Guardians of the Universe are sleeping. He wakes them, demanding vengeance, and entangling himself in the cables attached to their sleeping pods. Hal Jordan acts quickly, severing the cables and lifting Legion up into the air and carrying him away.
Struggling to think of a way to defeat a yellow enemy, Hal realizes that he can cover the yellow using Oa's muddy terrain. Once Legion is covered in mud, Hal is able to use his Green Lantern Ring to bring his enemy to its knees. But, when Hal seems ready to deliver a killing blow, Legion explains that he is in fact the collective souls of the people of Tchk-Tchk - a race trapped within an energy field on their own planet by the Guardians. Hal is not convinced, knowing that Legion had killed his friends back on earth, but he refuses to kill for Legion or the Guardians.
Hal uses his ring to remove Legion's armour, but an increasingly large creature springs forth and attacks the Corps.

After the Crisis on Infinite Earths, a 19851986 maxiseries which completely reset the continuity of the entire DC Universe, all of DC's major characters and franchises needed to be updated to reflect the changes in the events of their lives. Multiple story arcs were put out to explain these rebooted versions of popular characters.
