Synopsis for "4"

Having just been chosen as the new Green Lantern of Sector 2814, Guy Gardner is transported to Oa by one of the Guardians of the Universe. Although he tries to tag along, Hal Jordan is jettisoned just as they're approaching the planet. The Guardian goes over Guy's history as Hal Jordan's backup and his frequent inconveniencing injuries, explaining he is being chosen now because John Stewart is fighting for the Monitor.

Guy Gardner 008

The New Green Lantern

On Earth, Katma Tui tries to help with the natural disasters occurring because of the Crisis, and her Ring's power suddenly shuts off because of problems with the Central Power Battery of Oa. In the 19th Century, where John Stewart fights Shadow Demons with Cyborg, Jonah Hex, Bat Lash and Scalphunter and his Green Lantern Ring shuts off unexpectedly as well.

Back on Oa, wandering the uncivilized parts, Hal Jordan quests to become a Green Lantern again. He finds himself strangely able to fly, and realizes he is gaining power from the planet itself, which has absorbed energies and even gained minor degrees of sentience over the years. He finds his way into a research tunnel, and commandeers a vehicle to take him to the Central Citadel of Oa. He is briefly forced to fight one of the monsters freed by the loss of Green energy from the Sciencells, but escapes and takes off on foot.

The Guardians discuss their role in the Crisis with Guy Gardner, and summarize Krona and the birth of the Anti-Monitor. They intend to begin a new, smaller Corps with their weakened energies, featuring Gardner as one of their newest recruits. When Hal Jordan arrives, Green Lanterns K'ryssma and Apros attempt to bar his access. He is granted an audience with the Guardians. The Guardians Hal talks to believe that they should not fight the destruction of the Universe as it is their unchangeable destiny, while the Guardians Guy talks to are attempting to combat it; they disagree, and have been split up into factions. Guy Gardner is given his own Ring, and after years of reserve status is officially inducted into the Green Lantern Corps.
