To my surprise, I find that the prospect of death does not greatly disturb me -- knowing it will come, I will work, I will fill my days with deeds... perhaps I can accomplish more in a decade than my immortal brothers do in centuries. I will rest in peace, I am sure. Quote2

Synopsis for "Death Be My Destiny!"

The Guardian returns to Oa to face trial by the Guardians of the Universe for having put the needs of an individual first. The heroes Green Arrow, Green Lantern, and Black Canary attempt to to vouch for his character, but their friend pleads guilty. Despite the heroes' pleas, the Guardians dictate that the accused be stripped of his immortality and exiled to Maltus. They do, however, allow the Terrans to escort him.

The group are surprised to find that Maltus is highly populated, given the long interval since the Oans had been there. Also, the citizens appear hostile, particularly toward Black Canary, as she is a woman. They escape with Green Lantern's help, and decide to investigate by using his ring to dig up the city's archive building and get inside.

The archives' caretaker has locked himself inside due to the others' hostility. He explains that due to a series of complex events, Maltus is overpopulated, breeding hatred for outsiders and women who could bear children. They resolve to find and stop the source of the overpopulation, Mother Juna. Once inside her fortress, they are attacked by Mother Juna's goons, and flee to the lab. Green Lantern and Green Arrow use what they can find to take out the goons, while Black Canary defeats Mother Juna. An angry mob soon breaks into the fortress, and the heroes must pull Mother Juna out to prevent them from killing her. She explains that she had been left barren by a cloud of cosmic dust, and had started cloning people in order to be a mother.

The Guardian and Mother Juna stay on Maltus to help rebuild, and the Terran heroes return to Earth.
