Appearing in "Out"
Synopsis for "Out"
The space-bound contingent of super-heroes, now a
dozen strong, pursues the Highmaster from the wreckage
of the planet Orinda. When the leader of the Manhunters
turns and attack, he easily overcomes the heroes, then
vanishes in search of the Guardians of the Universe.
The new Dr. Fate attempts a magic spell which can
send the super-heroes to the same extradimensional destination, but due to his inexperience, he does not prepare
them properly to survive in that realm, and the costumed
champions feel their lives slipping away. In desperation,
Fate manages to concentrate the life forces of the twelve
in two of the crusaders: Hal Jordan holds those of his
fellow Green Lanterns, and Superman embodies the rest.
With Dr. Fate now comatose, there is no way to reverse
the spell, so Superman and Green Lantern set out to
complete their mission. Back on Earth, the Millennium Project proceeds at the
Green Lantern Citadel. Following their instruction by the
Oans, the Chosen lie meditating. Wonder Woman then
returns from her netherworld adventure. Batman, greatly
dismayed at the news of the Outsiders' downfall, recruits
Guy Gardner, and the two confront and battle the apparent traitor in their ranks, Booster Gold, at his corporate
headquarters, but Booster overpowers them and es-
capes. Herupa and Nadia, who are aging noticeably, watch
with concern as the Chosen awaken from their trance.
Tom Kalmaku's family reacts with fear at his new mental
attitude, despite his reassurances. Janwillem Kroef violently rejects the Oans' teachings and threatens to quit the
project, but the Guardian and the Zamaron have foreseen
his actions and merely bid him farewell. Green Lantern
John Stewart, fed up with the South African's racist
rhetoric, speeds him on his way with a power-ringed fist.
The Floronic Man, meanwhile, is contacted by a hidden
Manhunter agent, who instructs him to murder one of the
Chosen. However, Woodrue has now switched his allegiance; instead of obeying, he captures the Manhunter
and turns him over to the super-heroes for questioning.
Before they can proceed, Blue Beetle, Mr. Miracle, and
Kilowog, who have been examining the ship captured by
Aquaman and Aqualad, discover that it is designed for
travel not into space, but to the centre of the Earth, which
must be the location of the Manhunters' final stronghold.
