Synopsis for "The Dawn"

As Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps struggle to contain the massive, exponentially growing protoplasm that was once Legion, Hal's fear begins to overtake him. Kilowog, Tomar-Re and the other Corpsmen attempt to lift the creature from the planet, only to discover that it has dug itself into the surface of Oa, and is using the Guardians of the Universe's power against them.
Elsewhere, the Guardians look on, concluding that it serves Order better that they abandon their planet and preserve themselves. Hal responds with disbelief to their plan, challenging their cowardice and forming a plan to harness the energy within Oa's Central Power Battery.
Hal remembers the words of Abin Sur, encouraging him to overcome his fear. He flies directly into the Central Power Battery, and emerges surrounded by green flames. He uses the green energy to create a cyclone which pulls Legion from Oa's surface and launches it into space. From there, the rest of the Corps contain it, and take it back to its home planet of Tchk-Tchk, to begin life anew.
Perplexed by his actions, the Guardians question Hal, but he retains no memory of them. The Guardians see that Hal is in many ways an appropriate successor to Abin Sur, and award him the title of Green Lantern of Sector 2814. However, upon his return to Earth, Hal decides that he must do the right thing and turn himself in for drunk driving.
After a time, Hal is released from Gardner A. Broome State Correctional Facility, where he is greeted by his brother Jack, and Jack's girlfriend Dee. Jack reveals that Carol Ferris was impressed by Hal's show of responsibility in turning himself in, and has offered him his old job back.
Later, Hal is flying an aircraft when something goes wrong, in a parallel to the events which led to his father's death. Rather than use his ring to save himself, Hal endeavours to land the craft on his own, and it appears that he does, until it explodes, suddenly. Fortunately, an intact Hal emerges from the cloud of dust and debris, picks up his ring, and moves on.

DC Rebirth Logo

After the Crisis on Infinite Earths, a 1985-1986 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.
