Appearing in "Diversions"
Synopsis for "Diversions"
The female members of the Chosen having departed
with the other super-heroes, the Green Lantern Corps
prepares to escort the male contingent on their return to
the outside world. Tom Kalmaku, however, declines their
invitation, and decides to remain behind. Takeo Yakata
and the Floronic Man elect to accompany John and Katma
Stewart and Hal Jordan to visit their respective families,
while Gregorio de la Vega accompanies Arisia and Kil-
owog to the moon to check on their prisoner, Sinestro,
then to a baseball game in Peru. While the decidedly odd trio of Earth's familiar Green
Lantern, the Floronic Man (who now calls himself
"Floro"), and Driq share a typical California afternoon
with Hal's brothers Jack and Jim and the latter's family, a
tornado suddenly appears, which the two Emerald Crusaders swiftly neutralize. In Detroit, as the married GLs and Takeo visit John's mother, an earthquake strikes, and
the Green Lanterns counter its effects and rescue its
victims. Then, in Peru, the basball game is menaced by a
rain of fire, which Kilowog and Arisia halt. As a result of
having unleashed these threats, Myrwhydden, the diminutive evil wizard, is able to escape his prison cell on the planet Oa. Myrwhydden then appears in California to briefly baffle
Hal and Driq, then in Detroit to skirmish with John and
Katma, but by the time he materializes in Peru, Arisia and
Kilowog have been warned by Hal, and have sent their
energy-twin forms to Oa to investigate the mage's escape.
Joining forces and logically examining the pattern of
Myrwhydden's attacks, the Green Lanterns and the Chosen correctly deduce that Myrwhydden's actions are dictated by his ally, Sinestro. The renegade GL had tapped
the heroes' power, transmitting it to the wizard, who used
it to create menaces on Earth, causing the GLs to unleash
still more power, which Sinestro also tapped and sent to
Myrwhydden, finally enabling him to escape. Now Myrwhydden returns the favor by freeing Sinestro from his bonds on the moon, but the Green Lanterns immediately appear
and easily best the alien magician. Kilowog is again
tempted to kill the powerless Sinestro, but Takeo unexpectedly settles the matter by subduing Sinestro with his martial arts. With both villains now safely imprisoned once more, the
Green Lanterns and the Chosen return to Earth.
