Appearing in "In"
Synopsis for "In"
As Herupa Hando Hu and Nadia Safir begin their explanation of the universe to the Chosen, Superman returns to the Green Lantern Citadel from his adventure in Smallville. Batman has just recounted how he and Jim Corrigan rescued Manhunter prisoners from their Louisiana temple, which was then destroyed, and Captain Atom reveals his and Firestorm's part in the proceedings. (Batman does not tell the other heroes of the sacrifice of Karin Grace, while Captain Atom takes care not to mention his encounter with the Suicide Squad, whose existence is a government secret, and Corrigan keeps to himself his knowledge of the Spectre's involvement.)
Looker suddenly receives a telepathic alert from the people of the hidden land of Abyssia, who gave her her powers, and the Outsiders, except Batman, depart to deal with this new threat. Then Wonder Woman abruptly disappears (returning to her "Challenge of the Gods" quest, as seen in Wonder Woman (second series) #13).
Before the others can search for her, Aquaman and Aqualad arrive with the Manhunter ship they have salvaged (as seen in Teen Titans Spotlight #18).
Formerly jubilant at having destroyed what seemed to be the major Manhunter stronghold on Earth, the super-heroes are now taken aback at the prospect of the endless Manhunter reinforcements which could arrive from space. Meanwhile, on the planet Orinda, Harbinger is rescued by Driq, the alien Green Lantern who, though slain in battle, still lives, after a fashion, animated by the energy of his power ring. With the Guardian and the Zamaron busy instructing the Chosen, the heroes must form their own battle plans.
While the others remain to guard the Earth, a group of ten is assembled to attack their foes' homeworld, Orinda: Superman, J'onn J'onzz, Hawkman, Hawkwoman, Captain Atom, Firestorm, Green Lanterns Hal Jordan, Arista, and Katma Tui Stewart, and Dr. Fate, whose magic instantaneously transports them all to the Procyon star system.
