At the site of the train wreck, Alan Scott lives. He’s badly hurt but he pushes on to get free…. to find Sam. But before he can the “Green Fire” calls him forth and explains his destiny. That he has been chosen to be the green knight, the green light…. The Green Lantern. That a darkness is coming and earth needs a defender and that defender is him. He has been chosen by the living Earth. Alan agree to do what he can to protect the world, in Sam’s honor. The green flame explains that he can shape the green energies to his will and fly.
Hawkgirl is testing Jay (Flash) to check if he is worthy for something. She says Fate sent her and that’s how she knew where he would be. They have a brief scuffle which Hawkgirl easily wins due to Jay’s in experience with his abilities.
Else where a horrible force is taking shape, killing everything it touches. It has risen in response to the Green Lantern being chosen. It is the opposite of the Green, it is the Grey. It is decay, it feeds on death making it stronger with each life is extinguishes. I intentionally picks a target that will draw out the “Green’s champion”. It attacks the White House, killing everyone and everything it touches.
The man of the Grey calls to the champion of the Green; Grundy calls to the Green Lantern.
So Grundy is a the force of Decay in this world and Green Lantern in the power of life in the world. Different takes than I’m used to and I like it. GL being earth based rather than a “space cop” is a nice change. Reminds me of my Elemental characters just no evil decay versions lol
And some mysterious force/person caused the train wreck. Label me paranoid but I point the finger at Terry Sloan!!
