Adam Strange witnesses the entire planet Rann lapse into madness due to an attack by Oblivion. As Strange tries to defend the planet, he is unwillingly transported to Earth, where he gets help from Firestorm and the Atom in alerting the JLA of Oblivion's approach. When Strange debriefs the JLA about the encounter, Kyle Rayner is shocked to hear the description of Oblivion, because it matches the description of a supervillain Rayner had created as a child. The JLA engages Oblivion but are quickly overpowered, so Rayner retreats to gather other heroes to help him.
After a brief warning from the Spectre that someone close to Rayner would betray him, the Green Lantern asks for assistance from Oracle, who sends over Power Girl. Just as she arrives to help, however, a group of six new Green Lanterns appears out of nowhere, each of them claiming to be the sole protector of Earth in a different time or universe. They are: Pel Tavin, the Emerald Knight, Ali Rayner-West, Hunter and Forest Rayner, G.L.7177.6 and Alexandra DeWitt.
