The Guardians of the Universe call together all 3,600 members of the Green Lantern Corps for a special emergency meeting on Oa. They warn the GL Corps of the coming of one of their oldest, most dangerous enemies -- Krona. Krona interferes with the assembly, causing the Central Power Battery to explode. Several Green Lanterns are killed in the explosion, and the others scramble to put out the fires caused by the ensuing green energy inferno.
